    I would imagine now someone would/could program in some mods and make it modern vehicles instead of medieval/fantasy creatures...

    Archon Coming Back

    Anyone else a fan of this game? I spent a lot of time on those old Atari 800xl playing this "battle chess" type of game.

    MYRIAD INTERACTIVE SECURES ARCHON LICENSE
    DEAL SIGNED WITH FREE FALL GAMES
    For immediate release

    London: 6th February 2007

    Myriad Interactive begins the year with a series of license agreements. First to be announced is the signing with Free Fall Games of Archon, the title that made its first appearance in 1983 on the Atari 8-bit computer, but was then ported to classic consoles such as the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and even the NES. The game proved popular with its cunning mix of strategic gameplay and intense action sequences.

    “We are incredibly pleased to have signed this brand. Archon is a well respected license that has huge nostalgic value for the right reasons - the gameplay, the great combination of strategic thinking and the intense arcade action,” says Leo Zullo, founding Partner, Myriad Interactive.

    “Archon was such a favorite that we’re pleased to make it available to a new generation. We look forward to a new version of the game that combines the fun and spirit of the original with today’s exciting technology,” says Jon Freeman, Creative Director & Partner, Free Fall Games.

    “We believe now is the right time to bring Archon back and look forward to presenting the concept to a new generation of gamers, as well as those that remember it 1st time around,” Zullo concludes.

    Archon will be published through the Mercury Games brand, and details on the formats will be released soon.
