Lantern of Worlds is a computer game based on Arabian mythology and the tales of 1001 Nights. It is inspired by older games like the Quest for Glory series, Eye of the Beholder and Lands of Lore.
In Lantern of Worlds you are one of the royal adventurers of king Valdemar of Idunia. You are send on a diplomatic mission to the courts of Sultan Mehmet the Magnificent. On your way there, however, dark forces plot your undoing, and you are left in the middle of the ocean, in a small lifeboat, with nothing but your wits and your determination to survive.
Luckily, you spot an island in the distance...a desert island, where many adventures await you!
But during during your adventures, you will find that great events have been set in motion, and that you have a grand role to play in the undoing, or salvation, of the kingdom of Idunia, and indeed, the world.
- 6 different voice-actors!
- Various random locations & encounters!
- More then 40 different stories!
One of the aims of the game is to introduce especially younger players to the mythologies and folk tales of the world, and create for them an atmosphere of storytelling and wonder!
As Lantern of Worlds is largely based on text and reading, we hope that it may contribute to the reading skills and text comprehension of younger players, and show them a bit of the magic of old tales and stories, read from a dusty old book!
Lantern of Worlds is the first of what will be a series of games, each based on a different world mythology. Start on an epic journey that will take you to faraway lands, enchanted islands, castles in the clouds, and places of such beauty and wonder that defy imagining!
Who knows where you will end up, and what great adventures will await you!
Ah, such busy days!
I have been working on updating the game Lantern of Worlds, (which is available on Steam now) rescaling it to a new resolution, and improving several GUI elements. And the update is now complete.
As the game is an interactive fairytale, an interactive book really, I am moving towards a graphical look that has more in common with dusty old books :)
Two free DLC stories have been added, which give background information on characters you might meet in the game.
I have also added a new story to the desert area of the game.
And finally, work has begun on the prequel to Lantern of Worlds, Lantern of Worlds - The first Quest. In the prequel, you have been chosen by your village as the best and bravest of its youths, and have been send to compete in the Trials. The winner will have a place at the Great Tournament, where a new Royal Adventurer will be selected.
