    Does anyone know what ended up with Red Eagle and Obsidian's planned computer RPG set in the Wheel of Time universe?
    Obsidian are now working on Project: Eternity, so I guess the WoT game is not happening after all?
    Or what not?

    They did a fundraiser to make a social media game, and it fell dismally flat (big surprise). Beyond that, I don't know.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure they were completely counting on that fund raising to be able to develop the game. Considering no one wants REE to have anything to do with WoT, they didn't get the funding and therefore weren't able to develop the game. I'm surprised it fell as completely flat as it did, and that they didn't pursue it more, but that's REE for ya.

    I found the PC game not bad, though it wasn't set during the time of Rand et al. You did get to play around in Shadar Logoth and the White Tower though.

    Yah but it is pretty old now. I'm not sure how well it'd run on a modern PC. You'd have to look on the likes of Ebay, I think (that's where I got mine about 5 or 6 years ago). The story is a bit um... lacking, but for me just being able to balefire people was fun enough :giggle

    Yeah you don't see the Red Eagle guys around here much any more.


    Larry Mondragon must have blown so much smoke up someones ass someone to get them to believe he's capable of anything.


    The very definition of less than useless in my opinion.

    Too bad. A Wheel of Time MMORPG would be like an upgrade from WoTMUD, Text-Based to high-end graphics. I'd be in.

    I think a MMORPG game like BSG online would be great!Think of all the trollocs you could fight, the Ter'angreal and other items of power we could use.I would love to play a modern game based on WOT!

    i would really like to see a series of games in several genres that take place in the same world but on a different turning of the wheel. a spy/stealth/espionage game set before the bore is drilled (they can deal with the research that leads up to the bore being drilled and the fall of some of the great researchers to the dark one), an action/fps game set right after the bore is drilled (rescuing people from the disaster of the bore and dealing with bubbles of evil and the sudden attacks of darkfriends) , an RTS set during the war of power (could start with the dark and the light learning large scale war and moving on from there), and an mmorpg set during the time of the hawkwing-esq figure that comes after the imperfect sealing.

    Yeah its almost that style. Its totally worth playing though, interesting abilities and puzzles to solve, challenging battle, relatively inventive concept. There is a demo available online that contains two of the "levels" - Shadar Logoth and The Fortress of the Light. If you play through those two you'll know if you want to play the rest of the game or not.

    Awesome . I may just have to check it out. I am actually super surprised that with the success of A Game of Thrones recently that no developer has decided to make an updated game of the WoT? I mean the series is Completed now, so they certainly have a lot to work with... :/

    I agree, I am surprised that with the popularity of The Wheel of Time that it has not gathered more attention by the entertainment industry. No movies yet, only one video game that is out of date. Its sad. But like you said Game of Thrones has been doing really well, so maybe we'll see more in the high fantasy genre in the future? There is a Game of Thrones game now that has gotten decent reviews. And the new Neverwinter MMO is based off a book series. So who knows?

    When I started reading the Wheel of Time I had no idea that there is a big fanbase behind it.
    You think somebody would have noticed the potential commercial value of a movie and/or game about the Wheel of Time?
