Myth II: Soulblighter boasts numerous improvements to the game engine and added features that improve gameplay.

In Myth II destruction reigns supreme. Castle walls will crumble under a barrage of Dwarven mortar fire. Drawbridges will lower before your besieging army. Flaming arrows will rain down from battlements, lighting the ground beneath you. Dark wizards will hurl deadly sorceries at your ranks, scattering even your bravest warriors.

Myth II: Soulblighter is a unique strategy game, set in a 3D world of dangerous alliances and ancient evil, where all beings tremble before the wrath of Soulblighter, cruelest more...

I played this game consistently for 5 years from when it first came out. It is perfect, and the people who continue to maintain it are geniuses.

Apparently a bug has been uncovered which has caused the developers to temporarily withdraw the Soulblighter 1.7.1 release until it has been fixed:


Please be patient!

Nice! I haven't played this game in almost ten years, but I still have my original CD copy, and am surprised how well it works, even on a completely different OS and hardware architecture than the last system I played this on (an original Sawtooth G4 tower running Mac OS 9).

The sprites look pretty dated, but otherwise this still looks (and sounds) great, and most importantly is still fun. Thanks to the developers who continue to maintain this project for their ongoing efforts to preserve this classic game.

The download link is to the still-current-stable version 1.7.0. Whoever updated the description is describing the BETA 1.7.1. If you want to try out the BETA 1.7.1, go to the following page and read the details:

Seems to me someone jumped the gun on posting this as an update.

Thank you Project Magma for keeping Myth II alive. I wish there were more games being maintained by their communities of players like this one is. After over 10 years, Myth II is still playable on the latest OS versions and hardware, changes that have rendered many other games obsolete.

The enhanced ground textures are an awesome bonus.

My one regret is that even used copies of the game discs, still necessary to play the full version of the game, are increasingly rare and still very expensive.

Though this is an unlikely wish, I think it would be a neat idea to try to port this game to iPhone. It would turn on a whole new population to this style of game and its volumes of user-generated content, without terribly taxing the system requirements.

After a ton of moves, I have my book but cannot find the disks anymore.... A case where if Bungee weren't owned by MS I might be able to get replacement media.

Not sure what is being updated or why the version number is 1.6. The 1.6 has been out for some 5 months. The modification date has changed (and slight app name modification) but still the same version number. Loathing and Fear both remain at their respective version numbers, too.

Still, I've had no issues w/ performance on the previous versions, even on an Intel Mac. Would expect this version to maintain if not improve upon that performance.

I too am very grateful this game has continued to be developed. I hope companies continue to release their older games to the open source community. Myth II plus WW II plugins wasted many hours years ago and will start to do so again. :-)
