Battles of Destiny Map Editor Available on GOG

The Battles of Destiny Map Editor is now available via GOG! The map editor actually shipped with the game, but was not accessible via the DOS Box. GOG has fixed this, and you can now make your own maps! Instruction for using the Map Editor start on p. 61 of the manual, and we plan to livestream some examples of how to use it.

There is an image attached showing the new startup screen. If you do not get this option, uninstall Battles of Destiny (you will be able to keep your saved games) and reinstall it.

You can get Battles of Destiny here https://www.gog.com/game/battles_of_destiny

Hammer of the Gods Now Available on GOG

Hammer of the Gods puts you in the role of one of Odin’s chosen, leading Vikings, trolls, elves and dwarves in a war across Europe or a fantasy world of your own creation. A classic 4x strategy game, Hammer of the Gods introduced the combat system later popularized by Heroes of Might and Magic. During play you explore, create new colonies, raid and plunder, and fulfill rewarding quests for the gods of Norse mythology.

Hammer of the Gods has not been commercially available since New World Computing lost the rights in 1995. Now you can get it at https://www.gog.com/game/hammer_of_the_gods and it is discounted for its launch week.

Hammer of the Gods review from Computer Gaming World Issue 127:
… if you are looking to pass a few hours with friends having fun, then hop into a boat, slap your horns on your head and leave your civilized conscience behind. The Gods are waiting and they have TOYS!!!”
