World of LordCraft Rips Off Blizzard's Franchise?
It name itself sound way too familiar to be legal.
Someone get Blizzard on the phone. Just in name alone, World of LordCraft should indicate where the roots of this online PC game truly lie. While WoL isn't exactly an MMORPG, it clearly borrows heavily from Blizzard's offline fantasy-based RTS franchise... right down to the Alliance and Horde factions. Oh wait there's a Demon Legion thrown in there too. How original.
A video provided on the game's website actually looks somewhat promising--at least for a few seconds until a horrible, echoing voice-over spoils the show. "Build an unprecedented castle, " the video promotes. "Never surrender your freedom."
Without showing actual gameplay, the promotional video offers various animations on building a kingdom, and screenshots depicting Heroes of Might and Magic-style battles. On a whole, WoL is an isometric, flash-based, browser-based PC game with city building and RTS traits.
WoL is also absolutely free to play.
