Black Dawn Rebirth - Dungeon Crawler/RPG from Double Sided Games

Quote:

Black Dawn was originally released in the 90's created using AMOS by Andrew Campbell, as a very deep and dark atmospheric dungeon crawler, that gave you the chance to use hundreds of weapons and items against a multiple of disgusting enemies. This upcoming crawler announced today, will be the 7th episode in the series

I have a suspicion at least Hellbound was made without Andrew Campbell. But the whole saga is EXCELLENT!

Aladin 05 February 2019 23:08

Thanks, you're right for blackdawn 5, 6 and 7: not A Campbell. It is Z Soft (Shaun Watters, Tim Gilbert)

Black Dawn Rebirth - new Amiga game under Development
 
Some board members may remember the PD/Shareware/Licenceware series "Black Dawn". They were Dungeon Master/Hired Guns style first person dungeon crawler RPGs set in space.

Anyway, 20-odd years after the last instalment, (most of) the original development team have got back together to develop a new instalment in the series, which will have a physical release on the Amiga later this year.

More details here: https://doublesidedgames.com/black-d...0-coming-2019/

Oops a daisy, sorry! I thought only me and Shaun already knew about it!

And if anyone has any questions about the series, I was involved in most of the titles in some capacity ;)

Would be awesome if there is any chance to bundle the previous Black Dawn games to the new one. If rights allow.

Black Dawn 7 Champions of Dawn (1996 Shaun Watters, Tim Gilbert / Zsoft)

Another Zsoft Game:
Parasite 1 (1995 Zsoft)
Parasite 2 (1996 Zsoft)

A couple of amendments here:

Black Dawn 1 (1993 A Campbell)
Black Dawn 2 (1994 A Campbell)
Black Dawn 3 Legions of Dawn (1995 A Campbell)

Black Dawn 4 A New Beginning (also rereleased as Black Dawn Remix) (1996 Shaun Watters, Tim Gilbert/Zsoft)
Black Dawn 5 Hellbound (1996 Shaun Watters, Tim Gilbert / Zsoft)
Black Dawn 6 Champions of Dawn (1996 Shaun Watters, Tim Gilbert / Zsoft)

There are two versions of Black Dawn 1 - a PD one and the Shareware version. There are also two versions of Black Dawn 2 as the YouTube videos I have seen don't have my title track - Graeme Virtue did the original and a second release had mine - according to my MOD archives, anyway!

A New Beginning was the first entry written by Z-Soft and it was rereleased with some bug fixes and adjusted levels as "A New Beginning Remix". There's two versions out there.

ThunderDawn (1996 A Campbell) was a post-Black Dawn spin-off but it had bows and arrows and magic so isn't canon. The same engine was used in Fever (also by Andy Campbell in 1996 I think)

Really cool!

Predseda 11 February 2019 18:52

That is very different to that we saw in previous parts and it looks really well. Is it AMOS again?

I think the previous parts were a mash up of how the games looked previously as a tease to the upcoming game :)

Steril707 11 February 2019 19:20

Woah, Dungeon Crawler Doom.. :D

Nice, looking forward to that... :)

I know, I am talking about the games, not about the trailer.
