Lantern of Worlds is a computer game based on Arabian mythology and the tales of 1001 Nights. It is inspired by older games like the Quest for Glory series, Eye of the Beholder and Lands of Lore.
In the game, you are one of the royal adventurers of king Valdemar of Idunia. You are send on a diplomatic mission to the courts of Sultan Mehmet the Magnificent.
On your way there, however, dark forces plot your undoing, and you are left in the middle of the ocean, in a small lifeboat, with nothing but your wits and your determination to survive.
Luckily, you spot an island in the distance…a desert island, where many adventures await you!
In the game, you will travel through a great desert, fighting monsters and bandits, finding ancient tombs, crumbling temples and glittering oases. You will gain experience and become more powerful, you will find weapons of both mundane and arcane quality, and you will embark on dangerous quests that will hopefully aid you in escaping the great desert alive.
But during during your adventure, you will find that great events have been set in motion, and that you have a grand role to play in the undoing, or salvation, of the kingdom of Idunia, and indeed, the world!
Lantern of Worlds is the first of what will be a series of games, each based on a different world mythology. Start on an epic journey that will take you to faraway lands, enchanted islands, castles in the clouds, and places of such beauty and wonder that defy imagining!
Who knows where you will end up, and what great adventures will await you!
