In our regular Fight Club podcast, we talked about one big topic this week: What famous games would work well if we set them in the Middle Ages?
The idea arose from recent gossip that the Polish studio Bloober Team was working on a game that combined the Middle Ages and a drooling xenomorph from the Alien series. In the end, the alleged project did not receive its release, but we liked the idea of bringing the famous brand back to the past.
In our over-hour debate, a number of ideas have come up, but if you don’t have time to listen the whole part of the Fight Clubwe have a selection of the 8 most interesting ideas for you.
Horsa Motorsword (Forza Motorsport)
The principle of this racing game is of course simple: you have the opportunity to improve your horse, give him better horseshoes, feed him better, but even change his saddles. The plants would then operate with various towing devices. For example, pulling wood on the steep slopes of forests would certainly be a nut for true offroad lovers!
Hitman in a medieval setting is damn tempting. A royal banquet where you can change as a servant, a local nobleman or a royal clown? A monastery with a cathedral and a hospital, where you must destroy the abbot of the bribe? Or maybe such a crowded medieval marketplace that encourages a lot of fatal accidents? We would definitely like that!
Foteball Guildemaster (Football Manager)
The history of football dates back to ancient China. Why not take a look at the predecessors of football and try to be the manager of listening to an inflated pig bladder? The subtle nuances of medieval life would certainly flood many strategists. What if they took your star striker to war against France when he was such a sharpshooter, or burned the best goalkeeper at the border, because his last intervention was simply magical?
Theme Almshouse (Theme Hospital)
Medieval hospitals were not hospitals in the sense we know today. You would find less expertise in the average medieval hospital than would fit a thumb-crushed fingernail. On the other hand, procedures such as venous drainage, head tremors, limb amputations or overcoming anorexia using a tube in the rectum definitely sound like really morbid fun!
Lute Hero (Guitar Hero)
The famous troubadour who travels around Europe and sings songs about romantic stories with brave knights and virtuous virgins. That sounds great? Not to! Actually, it’s a Marigold simulator from the Exorcist – and we’ll like that. And as Cornelius Link did with their great variations on famous songsmedieval music suits everything.
A Distinguished Club of Murderous Gentlemen of the Kingdom of Sicily (Mafia)
First of all, we certainly agree that the medieval urban environment is desperately unused in the games. Secondly, imagine the classic story of an ordinary pickpocket, who gradually develops from a ragged drive to the elegant, charismatic head of the largest robbery association in all of Sicily. But at what price?
Templar Knights: The Cross (Spec Ops: The Line)
There is no doubt that the Middle Ages were a damn brutal time. While historians and sociologists have debated whether the post-traumatic disorder has plagued fighters in the past, it does not change the fact that the human story, where you have to face the consequences of your decisions, can be conceived in every way, regardless of the historical setting. And war crimes were no less creepy in the past than they are today. So slipping into the skin of a crusader who is conquering a Muslim city with his brothers, only to gradually begin to realize who the monster is, sounds like a damn interesting experience.
Super Cavalier (Super Seducer)
Like Super Seducer 3, which has not warmed up on Steam for very long, Super Cavalier, with his very dubious approach to topics such as sexual violence, consensus or hebephilia, would probably not go very far. In short, the medieval tribe saw the relationship between a man and a woman in a slightly different modern man. But honestly, the 500-year-old advice on how to pack the most beautiful village in the village would probably be no more absurd than the nonsense that comes from Richard La Ruina!
There were other ideas in our podcast, whether it was a medieval version of Silent Hill, Bioshock, or Heaven’s Vault, where you would discover the ruins of the Roman Empire as a curious monk. We definitely recommend listening to the whole episode
