Have any of ever heard of WarCraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans.....
the warcraft-adventure game, which Blizzard cancelled.
You may have seen a preview of the game on the first version of Starcraft, on the first CD.
The game looked great, especially if you liked adventure-games like monkey island and strategy games like C&C and warcraft 1 - 2

A shame it was cancelled.


you can read about it here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warcraf...d_of_the_Clans
and here:
http://www.answers.com/topic/warcraf...d-of-the-clans

Do any of you know if there were any BETA-version ever released??? and if it can be downloaded somewere????



Cause i would like to know..

Such a game would fit nice to this wonderful site.



You can see some of the pictures and screenshots from the game here:

And you can download the prewiev to the game here:

None of the links work here, but I've read 'bout a Warcraft adventure game back as a kid. Dunno its name or anything, but't kinda sounds like that's the one. Never hoped to hear anything 'bout it.

Edit: YARRR! Fruitpie! That's that game I read 'bout as a kid :w00t:

Never knew the game was cancelled, noticed it some time ago and then forgot about it again. Would've been an interesting game, though.

They cancelled it because they noticed that it sucked hardcore.
If you don't believe me, go read the interviews yourself.

I'm glad they cancelled it to go on with Warcraft III's production.

I still woulda wanted to see the game.
I'm sending them a e-mail, just out of curiousity.

yes maybe it did suck, i never played it, so i cant say, but would like to have played it.
it did come from different sources, that is Blizzard had many minor companies to contribute..... and then when they put it all together, it did not fit that well together - that is one the biggest reasons why it got cancellled...... that ive heard.

but like you, i still wanted to see it, very much.

btw the story was written into a pretty good book (which I have). Warcraft: Lord of the Clans. Is about thrall and his time growning up, and joining the frostwolf clan, and regrouping the orcs.

Yeah I read that.
I own that and the first three books that were released.
The first one was rubbish, but the second two (Lord Of The Clans, and the one with Khadgar and Medhiv were actually quite good).
