2021/10: Darkmere: The Nightmare's Begun (Amiga) - George s
« on: September 30, 2021, 07:30:56 pm »

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to George s's Darkmere: The Nightmare's Begun (Amiga) maps.

As Prince Ebryn, you are given a magic sword and an elven crystal from your dying father, King Gildorn.  Gildorn was once an elven hero who had defended the kingdom from the great dragon Enywas.  But now, the kingdom is plagued by orcs and dragons, as well as the "Darkmere" - a cloud of darkness - and so it is your turn to destroy the approaching evil.  The nightmare may have begun - but can you end it?

The Amiga is a classic computer platform that we haven't seen represented much here on VGMaps.com, and the last time we saw an Amiga game featured in the Maps Of The Month was nearly 15 years ago!  George s is no stranger to isometric maps, having been honoured for the Maps Of The Month for Landstalker and Lady Stalker, which are both isometric adventures, as well.  But this one is triply mapped!  First, there are full screenshot maps of each area, fragmented, but as they appear in-game.  Second, there are "connected" maps with the screens stitched together, providing a more cohesive look at the world.  Third, there's a more recent addition of simplified maps that are ideal for printing.

So to recognize the effort put into mapping yet another isometric game, and three times over, George s's Darkmere: The Nightmare's Begun (Amiga) maps will be known as VGMaps.com's Maps Of The Month for October 2021.
