Moonstone Remake Preview
>It’s with great pleasure that We announce the Moonstone Remake
– Coding in Progress,the great Amiga based Videogame that back at 90’s
created a new genre of Middle Age Fantasy,
getting inspiration from one century of novels,movies,cartoons of epics sagas.
Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight, is a computer game developed and published
by Mindscape in 1991. It was released on the Amiga and one year later converted
to DOS-based PCs. The title is a play on A Hard Day’s Night.
Moonstone’s gameplay blends several different genres, including strategy,
real time fighting and role-playing games.
It allows up to four players to participate in a basic turn based
Role Playing Game with real time combat for any encounters.
It is also notable as one of the goriest games of its time,
with some exceptionally bloody fight and death scenes,
similar in tone to the famous Black Knight fight scene
from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
The game has a large cult following and is widely regarded
as one of the best games available on the format.
The game is highly sought after as a collectible;
an original copy in good condition with all the original included contents,
including a map of the game world, is extremely rare.
