  1. Interesting stuff!

    There was no doubt that when Mantic set out to create Dungeon Saga, they were going for a Heroquest motif. I even think they may have alluded to this in an interview at one point; and one of the last things I recall being officially released for Heroquest was a series of gamebooks. Each with a quest for the boardgame included in the back.

    Do you think this is something that Mantic will do as well?
