Midwinter was a seminal Amiga game. I played it for months without getting close to finishing it properly but, like modern open-world games, it's a world that you're happy just to be in. Only 2 days ago I resolved to dig out the box after not thinking about it for years. So sad to hear now that Mike Singleton's passed away.

Reading the old reviews online reminds me how far ahead of its time it was. When you look at the mixture of turn-based strategy with 1st person open-world gaming... is anyone even doing that now?

I remember Lords of Midnight well but I was quite young when I came out. We had no manual so it went totally over my head, but I'd load it up every now and again because I was so intrigued by it. You don't have to see much of the game to realise why it's still so well known - there's just something magical about it.

Sad news - gaming has a lost a real great there and way too young.

Chris

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Lords of Midnight was quite simply the reason that I bought a Spectrum. A work of genius from the dawn of home computing.

We were the lucky ones, thanks Mike Singleton.
