Drew has posted an update on the progress of the Official Novel… on his blog. I don’t have much to say that he hasn’t covered, apart from: I’ve been following the progress with the updates as they’ve landed on my computer, and I think we’re in for a treat. I’ve been really enjoying it so far…
Jure, who drew the graphics for The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge remakes, not to mention all the illustrations from the Novellas and often displayed here, develops a graphics package called JugiPaint. So every now and then he throws me something he has drawn using it while using Midnight as his inspiration.
While I’ve been looking at the data for The Citadel, and putting it in a editable format, I thought I’d make available the data for The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge. The zip file includes a JSON file for the database structure and a JSON file that can be loaded into TILED.
I’m pretty sure that this is the exact same data that has been released with the game, however I can’t be 100% sure due hacks I might have done in code at the 11th hour!
In 1984, Mike Singleton and Beyond released The Lords of Midnight. It’s hard to find an exact date, review copies were starting to appear with the Weekly Magazines toward the end of May, and the Monthlies seemed to have it in their June or July edition. On that basis, 1st June seems a good as date as any to celebrate 30 years.
