Myth (computer game)

Myth is a series of real-time strategy computer games, specifically, Myth: The Fallen Lords, Myth II: Soulblighter, and Myth III: The Wolf Age. The latter was developed by Mumbo Jumbo Software and published by Take 2 Interactive, the former developed and self-published by Bungie Software, now a division of Microsoft under the name Bungie Studios. Upon Bungie's sale to Microsoft in 2000, Bungie sold the rights to the Myth franchise to Take 2 Interactive.

These games represented a departure from old standards such as Warcraft in that resource retrieval and unit construction were de-emphasized in favor of squad-level and single-creature-level tactics. They were also remarkable for depth of free multigamer internet-play support, intense and continuing fan activity on the web (including a wide range of fan-created mods), and simultaneous Macintosh and Windows PC development and release.

Release dates:

  • Myth: The Fallen Lords - November 1997
  • Myth II: Soulblighter - December 1998
  • Myth: III: The Wolf Age - December 2001

The Myth series is emotively set in a Tolkienesque world, beset by an undead enemy bent on destruction.
