The War of the Solstice


The War of the Solstice (WOTS) is a faithful remake of the original Lords of Midnight by Mike Singleton.

Whilst the core game mechanics remain the same as the original, the traditional landscaping graphics have been updated with 3D graphic techniques including variable climates and weather effects, to paint the land of midnight in a more colourful and absorbing way. There is also a soundtrack which contains many handcrafted tracks and audio effects which adds to the playing experience.

For those who want to play with a friend in a more head-to-head approach, I have also allowed the player to take control of Doomdark’s forces.

    I tried to run WotS on a Mac with Wine but unsuccessful. Are there any libraries required to run it? I already added wine tricks for directx9 (same ones I needed for Legend of Grimrock 2)
