Yesterday I told everyone that follows Undiscovered Tomes's Facebook page that I was going to have a "special feature" related to the latest Treasured Tome posted onto the site. I'd have it here either sometime last night or today.
And it's finally here!
The latest Treasured Tome, Shadowcursed, wasn't just a fabulous, well-written, engaging novella. Nope. It's a companion piece.
A companion piece for what, you ask?
A game. Specifically, it's the companion to a first person game mod that focuses on the concept of a thief, rather than a fighter. That game mod is called Requiem, and can be played for free by using The Dark Mod.
What exactly is The Dark Mod, you ask? Well, to quote directly from the site,
"The Dark Mod is a FREE, first-person stealth game inspired by the original Thief series by Looking Glass Studios. In it you play a hooded figure slinking through the shadows of a gothic steampunk city, hunting priceless valuables while avoiding the swords and arrows of those hired to stop you.
The Dark Mod was originally released Oct. 17th, 2009. The standalone version, TDM 2.0, launched in Oct. 2013." (source)Sounds pretty enticing, right?
While I love RPGs (role playing games), I'm not much for first person... mainly because I'm pretty bad at them. As in, I-don't-have-the-common-sense-to-remain-stealthed-when-necessary-and-I-can't-even-hit-a-stationary-target bad.
No, really. The last time I played a first person shooter was when I was in college, playing on a local area network (everyone was in the room with me), and the laughter over my mishaps was deafening.
|Yep... I was that bad.|
|I mean, who wouldn't want the ability to walk |
through beautiful scenarios like this?
