Legend of the Frozen Empire - Rune Coop mod



Legend of The Frozen Empire The day has come, it's 01.09.2014! As we promised we will release LOTFE on this day, which came true!

~~What is LOTFE?

Voy started the project originally, it was a small coop back in time. I (S.Boss) made a singleplayer mod years ago, but I stopped editing it( bugs, crashes, missing files... ). While playing Rune on a server, I met Voy who showed me his coop. I also showed him my unfinished singleplayer, or at least what remained from it... There were some correctly working maps, so I told Voy, I give them to him. I helped him with things like triggers or some fixes, later I decided to fix my SP maps to make them appropriate coop maps. Next, I joined him to finish the coop, I started editing totally new maps with Voy. Now, here we are with 40 coop maps ready to play for the Rune community, have fun!

- 40 Coop maps - New Textures - New Enemies - New Decorations - New Pickups - New Sounds - New Weapons - New Shields - New Foods - Secret Places - Ambient musics on the maps

RetroGOAT: Rune 1.0

Wizard takes a look at an old multiplayer favourite of his.

Rune is a hack 'n' slash melee action game developed by Humanhead Studios and released in 2001. It was very unique for its time and has since its release had a good multiplayer community. In 2012 it was re-released on Steam where it is now sold for €9.99. Games with similar fighting-systems include the Star Wars: Jedi Outcast series and Severance: Blade of Darkness.

The multiplayer community in Rune is divided between the classic Rune 1.0 and Rune: Halls of Valhalla, which was the stand-alone multiplayer version of the game. There are several differences between the gameplay of the multiplayer-modes in these games which have caused some to favour one over the other while some play both.

UPDATE: Rune has been re-released on GOG.com for the generous price of $4.99! Check it out at http://www.gog.com/game/rune_classic

I'm updating this blog.

The truth is...the layout of the old blog looked like shit. It was boring me to tears, and I think that's why I stayed away from the site for so long. In fact, I think I avoided taking real risks with this blog...and so I gave a pretty conservative approach to the content and layout of this site.

I've changed things around a little bit, and will be experimenting with the layout some more, so don't be surprised if you see more changes in the near future.
