PR on Kohan Shipping

August 29th, 2001 by Alkini

Loki sent out the following press release regarding the shipping and availability of Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns:

Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns Now Available for Linux

TUSTIN, CALIFORNIA – TimeGate Studios, Inc. and Loki Software, Inc. announce that the hit fantasy and strategy game, Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns, shipped for the Linux platform on Saturday, August 25.

The two companies partnered to expand the existing line of notable titles available to those operating on the Linux platform. Adding Kohan to the line of commercially available games for Linux is a milestone in computer gaming, as it is the first to be included from the immensely popular real-time strategy genre.

The game has received much praise for many of its dynamic features such as:

* An intriguing storyline that emphasizes discovering the history of the Kohan
* Unique company-based combat system, that allows players to build companies from the ground up, mixing and matching over 40 different units to create thousands of combinations
* Classic military concepts, such as morale, supply, terrain, formation, and more that affect how each company responds
* Unique, simple to manage upkeep-based economic system that takes the micromanagement out of RTS economics.

Kohan has an MSRP of $49.95 (USD) and is now available for order from the Loki webstore at http://www.lokigames.com/orders/. A listing of resellers can also be found at http://www.lokigames.com/orders/resellers.php3.

Linux gamers are welcome to sample Kohan by downloading the free demo at http://www.lokigames.com/products/demos.php3.

    I tried the demo, but I must say it really turned me off.

    First off, DGA (2) didn’t work, but that was probably just something broken in my setup.
    However, even though the DGA support is experimental, I couldn’t see myself playing the game given the extreme choppyness of the mouse. It felt awful. This was at 1280×1024/24 bpp, not an unreasonable resolution/depth, I think — correct me if I’m wrong. Screen fades were slow, screen scrolling as well.

    I tried to look for a resolution option in the Options, but no such setting was there. I also started the game in a 640×480 virtual resolution, but it jumped back to my 1280×1024 resolution.

    Restarting X or starting a new session (would there be enough frame buffer on the graphics card?) is not really an option.

    Sigh, another title that I’ll have to pass on.

    I dislike being forced to use the Loki demo launcher. Being behind a restrictive firewall prevents it’s use. Leaving the demos available for a straight ftp download as well would be reasonable.

    Is Rune HoV delayed? Or has it shipped?

    What about Myth2? People always forget about it : (

    I honestly think Myth and Myth2 are among the best video games of our time. And Loki even did an OpenGL patch for it. I don’t think the windows version even has that.
