Legends of Enchantment (Canceled)
Legends of Enchantment is a fantasy RPG action adventure game bringing magic and adventure to a world of wonder and enchantment.
The dragons were worshipped by those who practised magic for thousands of years. Their offerings and sacrifices kept the dragons wrath from the humans. When the dragons began their 500 year hibernation those without magical power turned on those gifted with it. They were driven into hiding, and those caught practicing magic were executed. Hundreds of years later children are taught that magic does not exist and that dragons are simply a myth.
With their hibernation coming to an end the dragons are stirring and their new offspring are ready to emerge. A young shepherd seeking shelter from a storm wandered deep into a mountains cave system. He discovered the most exquisite gems and returned home with them. They sold for extortionate amounts of gold and news travelled far and wide of his good fortune. Soon others began to search for these gems and like the Shepherd sold them to the highest bidder. These gems began to hatch. Hell hath no fury like a dragon that awakes to find her children gone.
Legends of Enchantment brings together the very best of Fantasy RPG and Action adventure games. It is set in a world of magic, knights, dragon, and good versus evil.

Legends of Enchantment will feature characters inspired by classic literature, those same legends that inspired Tolkein to create his masterpieces, Beowulf, Norse mythology, and King Arthurian Legends all inspired Tolkien's Legendarium and of course his Lords of the Rings Trilogy.
The game will take you on a quest to save a kingdom and unite its people, taking you through incredible landscapes that you may explore at will. You may travel by foot, carts, horse, boats, even by dragon or magic, the choice is yours and of course based on your knowledge, skill and where in the Kingdoms you are. You will be able to choose your skills and training, by focusing on magic, combat, or crafting. You can also combine the skills the choice is yours.
The lands are populated by many creatures some you will need to defeat and some you will be able to train to help you. You can learn to heal yourself and others by training in ancient arts of healing , derived from ancient traditions. Learn to survive by befriending the characters you meet, learning to fight skilfully, craft and use magic wisely. We will bring you magic, battles, friendship, and a great deal of adventure thrown in.
We are going to make a game that is amazing to play, stunning to look at and will have us all hooked from the moment we start to play. A game that we can all be proud of working on together.
We don’t think you should have to wait to get your reward goodies until the game is completed. After all we will have your money and why shouldn’t you get your stuff. So as soon as the campaign is successful on Kickstarter we will make and send you your goodies. You will have to give us a few weeks but send it we will, along with huge thanks for your pledge.
"The team working on Legends of Enchantment are a wonderful group of talented individuals. They all have backgrounds in games and have a great deal of experience in the industry. They are doing the most incredible job of bringing this game to life and we are all so excited to see Legends of Enchantment coming together." Stewart Bell
Stewart Bell has been involved with computer games for most of his working life. He found himself in games when Sid Meyer and Wild Bill Stealy asked him to set up Microprose in Europe. Microprose started off in his back bedroom and grew to publish some of the best known names in video games, including Sid Myer’s Civilization, Railroad Tycoon, Grand Prix, Silent Service, F15, Gunship and of course Elite Gold. Stewart also worked with Chris Roberts on Times of Lore and with Richard Garriott on the Ultima Series. Stewart has now joined Enchanted Software to bring him back to the heart of game making. He now wants to to make Legends of Enchantment the next, best fantasy game inspired by these original amazing games.
Creative Director, Deborah Bell has been in games for over twenty five years. Starting at College with a game for Mirrorsoft she went on to create teams that produced many games and conversions, including Total Carnage, FireForce, Piracy, Abandoned Places, Akira, Gnome Alone. She has worked with Japanese companies Vik Tokei and Koei Tecmo. Like Stewart she had worked in many areas of the gaming industry over the years and is delighted to be part of creating Legends of Enchantment, here at Enchanted Software.
We have already invested heavily in the project and would love to get the majority of the remaining funding required from Kickstarter. If the majority does come from Kickstarter that would be absolutely amazing and then you will all be able to have your input to help us create a truly unique experience for all those involved.
What we are really looking for is your participation in the development process and through the forums we will involve you as much as we can. We are also planning to provide a way for the community to produce assets for the game and become part of the team. Kickstarter is new to us so we are starting at a low goal in the hope that we can encourage as much involvement from the gaming community as possible.
The games industry has grown massively over the years and with this growth the cost of development has increased dramatically with development companies employing hundreds of people. With this high cost usually paid by publishers they have become reluctant to invest in a project that doesn’t fit into their limited tried and tested genres that they understand. Pitching new ideas usually means that much of the creativity is lost. Kickstarter lets us break free of these restrictions and develop a game that brings new and exciting challenges.
Your Involvement – We need you!
Through your pledges we will reward you by not only be getting your goodies to you, but by making you feel part of the team. Everyone who pledges will get their name in the credits and be able to join our online community to offer ideas and suggestions. We can’t do this without you and we want you to know how much we appreciate your involvement.Thank you you so much for finding our Kickstarter page! Please please join us and let’s make this happen together.

Risks and challenges
Creating any game is a challenge. Even with an experienced team with years of development behind them, there are always potential problems to navigate.
Keeping the team to a manageable size means that problems do not get hidden in vast layers of development departments. Programmers, Designers and Artists work closely together and are involved with the game at all stages of development.
One issue which often arises is the possibility that what looks great in design does not work as well as is hoped when it comes to life. The beauty of a small team is that changes and tweaks to game play can be made as we go along and at a very early stage, ensuring that the end users gaming experience is a good as it can be.
We will keep the team relatively small, and with all members being experts in their field, we will be able to enhance the game as we go along, ensuring that the end product is a wonderful experience for the players. We will of course stick to a design that we know is possible and achievable but with games it is each and every action that can make or break it in terms of game play and it is our aim to make Legends of Enchantment a game that every gamer wants to get their hands on.
The great thing about Kickstarter is your involvement. We will share the development process as we go along and be able to listen to your feedback. That means we will have access to the most important critics around. Your help and advise will go a long way to producing a spectacular game.
Experience is of course helpful and our team have many titles under their belts. Years of game development helps to anticipate and navigate the usual pitfalls and also take on the unexpected ones. Whilst it is never possible to guarantee success we feel that here at, Enchanted Software we have the energy, experience and determination to succeed in producing a game that we can all be proud of.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
