Darksun was a shift for SSI, finally deciding the Gold Box engine had completed its successful run. TSI was also interested in getting into worlds with a different feel, perhaps to broaden their audience. So we geared up for an entirely new engine, investigated console development, and charged into the unknown. The Brom art was a fantastic change, moving from the 80s style of Forgotten Realms.
So, with all the hiccups one expects with moving from sequels to original development, we were able to put out a product we were happy with. Strains related to this game and the changing market did lead to SSI being sold, and moving out of publishing.
You can still buy the original games on ebay i.e. ! I got them in their original box 🙂
Yes, it was a great game, but when thinking of Dark Sun, Al-Qadim comes also into my mind, which I found also a very nice game, if anyone remembers this one!
