I've often marvelled how there is so little Nahlakh content on Youtube.

While the game is old nowadays, it still has that something special about it. Maybe it is partly due to nostalgia, or maybe there was just the right kind of mixture of every little thing about it, including the charmingly brave artstyle of ever more and more fatter dragons the older they were meant to be. Ah, limitations of... what... 16x16 pixel icons? <3

I don't know! \/:D\/

But I first encountered the game when I didn't even speak a word of English, mainly due to Pelit-magazine doing that piece about it. I've come back to it about once a decade, but I never really completed it. Not even close. Even with cheated character data.

Fraps would not record it properly, which might have contributed towards it remaining mostly untouched by old game enthusiasts when it comes to showcasing gems from ye olden times... but now that I've become more familiar with OBS as a recording tool, I felt like finally giving it a try. To try and record an attempt of playing it. A gameplay of failure, potentially - well, to be honest: likely, as in my last play attempt I only completed the first island and then got fed up with super-parrying birdmen before having my hard drive crash on me and losing my save game files on that attempt. Thus, basically a blind attempt from that point onwards. It has been over 20 years since I've been to the third island, I think...

It always seemed like such a difficult and challenging game. At times even unfairly so! Yet, now that I have recorded 4 hours of it and using mage strength, shocking weapons and priest armor with minmaxed party, it seems oddly enough fairly doable so far? Well, the whipbats will probably still wipe the dungeon floor with my guys should I get to their place eventually.

My first recording attempt did result in a humiliating failure, as my recording had stopped by the time I left character creation and entered Nedly, and I only noticed it after having cleared the catacombs under the town. Oh, well. It could had been worse.

Anyways, the first two parts are up. I'll try to maintain uploading schedule of one per day.

A few links to informative pages from the POWS manual that are no longer linked to from the new site:

This one details all of the nations you can visit in POWS.

This one details all of the gods of POWS as well as the weapons and spells usable by priests of each deity.

I would certainly buy any iPad type of versions of Nahlakh/Natuk/POTWS!

Hey Soulwind is back!

Though I would love to see Natuk on GOG (I  hate Steam with a passion though) I don't know how feasible this would be. Even the Spiderweb games (Avernum, Geneforge, Avadon) which are probably the most popular 'indie' CRPGs around, only really sell when the prices are severely discounted and Natuk (the original and thus far only version) was already free so you would possibly have to remake the game pretty much and may need to add some content to entice a lot of those guys to spend money on it.

But man would I love to see it happen!

If you build it they will come.  I don't know how many of them or how much money they will bring...

LOL! Unfortunately the game does not run on my Windows XP desktop. Will try it on my laptop once I get the will to.

Oops, I must have deleted them at some point thinking it was just taking up space.   Puttin' em back now.
