19.12.2001 - New MacPPC version 0.14

V0.14 of ToT for the Mac can now send and receive emails. The next version will implement the residence screen. From there it's not far to a playable version for the Mac.

11.12.2001 - New PC version 0.26

V0.26 introduces some important new features to the PC version of Tales of Tamar:

  • Town screen
  • Map screen
  • Trade screen
  • Anarchy screen

This allows PC players to build their towns, to trade with other players and to explore the map. Next planned features are barracks and figures on the map.

10.12.2001 - New Amiga version 0.39

Version 0.39 for the Amiga introduces the so called BardsTale screen. Bards tale screen

BardsTale is a new feature to improve the atmosphere in the first few turns of ToT. It shows stories about the development of the realm.

But it is not only able to show simple texts, but enables us also to create "playable stories". Maybe some of you remember those "game books" where you could decide how the story ends.

This is possible with BardsTale, too. Theoretically, we could create huge fantasy stories where the decisions of the player have an influence on the realm.

But why is it called BardsTale? This is a tribute to the original "Bards Tale", back then when games were judged by story and atmosphere and when graphics were of minor importance.

BardsTale and the new port are created by our artist Carsten Fuhrmann.

Again, we'd like to invite a Amiga users to join the "Beta Test". On the last exhibition, somebody said that the ToT community would be the biggest Amiga club in Germany :-) We think this needs no further comment....

14.11.2001 - New Mac PPC version 0.13

11.07.2001 - New PC version V0.20

08.06.2001 - New Amiga Version V0.36 R1

Version V0.36 finally allows players to directly fight with each other. In the past few weeks, players were able to annex land, and now some of those who got too little now start to equip armies to get their fair share. Because land is important for income, resources and power.

The first battle were already fought and the people of Tamar mourn thousands of victims. We can see how borders start to move and notice the intrigues, insults and blackmails among players. There are prices offered for the heads of certains Lords and other players are incited to join the battle.

From the fact that we are talking about real humans playing with each other, results a complexity never seen before. It is a thousand times harder to fool a real human than a simpleton computer player.

Only the best and most clever will truly master the game and raise up the rank list. If some player should finally reach the title of a emperor, then this is not only a title, but also honor the perfect mastery of politics, mathematics and strategy. The title is a prove of the intelligence, bravery and reliabilty of the player.

So be warned: the higher a player ranks, the more dangerous it will be to upset him.

06.06.2001 - New Atari version V0.20

Finally, with version V0.20, Atarians can start playing on Tamar, too. For the first time in the real world, Amiga and Atari users together play the same commercial game over the Internet. An opportunity to finally settle the discussion which computer system is better :-)

Let the games begin :-)

After more than 4 years of work, our efforts start to show results. The system-independant ToT-API makes it possible to port routines in a very short order of time and to easily get versions to the same level of functionality. The hardware-near development allows ToT to run even on very slow systems.

The compatibility between versions makes it possible to switch the system in mid-game without problems.
