Want to play Might and Magic 6, 7 and 8 on modern systems with an updated game engine? Well, OpenEnroth looks mighty promising.

It's nowhere near finished yet with only Might and Magic 7 playable but it's regularly seeing contributions to keep working away on it. Support for 6 & 8 will be added in the future, obviously they need to start somewhere. The idea, like a lot of these open source projects including OpenMW for Morrowind or OpenRA for Red Alert (and others), is to build a platform to have it run on modern systems with enhancements while keeping the original game feel.

I've added it to my big list of releases to follow, so whenever there's a juicy update on it I'll let you know.

Nice to see a good few more projects like this appear over the last few years.

You'll need the data files which you can get easily on GOG.com.

Very cool! 4 and 5 are already supported by ScummVM, we'll soon have the complete collection!

Ah, this github project used to be called world-of-might-and-magic. It was somewhat dead-ish, so if it's actually picking up again than that's great. The fact that there is still no proper open source implementation is sad. I replay these games every 3 years or so... love the lore and gameplay. Probably my favorite RPGs of all time.

M&M 6, one of the top 3 best game ever.
I will test that for sure.

This is definitely great news for game preservation.
Might & Magic and Wizardry are my two favourite classic CRPG series, and I'm so glad we're able to play these games on modern systems.
