I just read the whole interview with Google Translate help as well as comments. Looks very interesting. I was previously searching for articles about Horde which would be written in English but I guess there is much more in Russian. Anyways, they mentioning that there were created 7639 sprites, so I...

Sounds interesting. Similar story happened to me - I memorised this Windows 95 sound in Horde, used for item pick up. When I hear it somewhere (there was several times in our sport centre), I am thinking "ok, today I am going to play Horde again" :) I am very keen to find out these Horde a...

Kind of interesting. What sound libraries could be potential candidates for these 1995 - 2005 period? I.e. I am trying to find out where these nature and ambient sounds in Horde can be coming from :)

Yep, I noticed that. However, I was unable to find out where Horde developers took ambient and nature sounds from, including this wolf howl, which I found on soundbible: http://soundbible.com/130-Werewolf-Howl.html There are also some bird, crickets/frogs, wind and some other ambient forest sounds, ...

Hey folks, all these months I was making similar game to Horde, which now has a playable version: https://apps.facebook.com/urts_demo/ This is very simple game, where you have barracks and can spawn knights or archers. And it's 3d and running on web. The similarity to Horde is that it has similarly ...

I have a few questions now, which I need to answer for my game version, which I am creating in Unity. So, these would be: What pathfinding algorithm do you think is used in Horde? It looks quite fast, as it is working with several hundreds units as DOS game from 2000 th's... How they work out with d...

Thanks, now it is much more clear about copyright things. So I will do something what will be similar to Horde in Unity with 3d and as much realism as possible. Anyways, if somebody would be interested to help with this game development, post me a message. Continuing about Horde: Northern Wind, I ju...

well, I think I have scent about playability and realism. Many developers complaining that it is hard to fill huge maps in such level that game would be intensively playable. So they deciding to take smaller maps. However, I think that this problem is not caused by map size, but more by leak of idea...

umm, it would be one of several ways, but I am not sure if it would be correct. Many things in the game are scaled not very proportionally. For example human size is very similar to tree size. The main issue why I worried about scaling for global map is that I am not sure if such large rivers can be...

Thanks for so informative answer MrFlibble. Well, talking about Horde maps, there are 3 levels of maps: level 1: the most global map, which is shown at the very beginning of both games. Horde:Northern Wind is set into left-bottom corner of the map and taking about 1/9 fraction of this map. Citadel i...

I played horde series like 5 times from start to finish and each time I am playing, I finding some new elements in the storyline. This think is very inspiring and I am quite often compari...
