Myth: The Fallen Lords

Part 77: Media Collection 2

Time for another small media collection post...


Here's a catchy little tune that makes use of several Myth sounds: casualty.mp3

I have a credits text file along with it that says:

It might be interesting to have a look at some of the pre-release Myth videos (in SuperTinyVideoVision™). The alpha UI/infobar and odd placeholder sounds are kinda cute, as is the way these videos lovingly linger on effects and gameplay bits that would be no big deal these days. Just a reminder that they were indeed a big deal back then.

"Carnage" is a brief clip of general combat.

"Dwarves" is a demo that Dwarves can indeed blow stuff up, including themselves.

"MythTFL" shows shade vs. zerks action.

"Myth E3" is a promo trailer for TFL... not sure what year of E3 this was, but obviously it had to be 1997 or earlier. The placeholder sound for the dwarf is especially silly.

I assume there was a larger version of the E3 trailer, but I haven't been able to find it. There's also another prerelease movie called "Archers", but the copies I've been able to find appear to be corrupted, or at least they don't agree with modern Quicktime players.
