The Ars Magica RPG comes to the PC, as a 2D simulation and generational role-playing video game... "Ars Magica: Years of Conquest"

Introducing Holdfast: the Record of the Dwarven Kingdoms

First of all, we've heard from several Ars Magica fans via our forums and by message, all asking variations of the same question. Although at this time we do not have plans to go for attempt #2 for funding, the dream of an Ars Magica video game remains alive due to you. A dedicated group of fans received permission to play an Ars Magica game on our forums, and that campaign reminds us of what could be (tm) every morning.

That said...

Since the conclusion of the campaign, we've been busily smithing our other projects, and one of them has arrived on Kickstarter this very morning. With pride in craftsdwarfship, we proudly present to you: Holdfast, an old school gamebook in the style of the '80s and '80s greats. We are producing both print editions (softcover and hardcover) as well as an Android/Mac/PC game application. We hope you'll lend us your axe as we create this epic saga of Dwarven gold, grudges, greed and glory in the dark places below the surface!

      That's how we feel! But that word 'yet'. ;)

      Holdfast looks interesting, but I'm still sad that Ars Magica is not (yet, I hope) making a second run for money.
