Anyone Remember Sacrifice?

I played this game way back in 2002. Great game, but severly underrated. I just bought it on GoG. I downloaded the widescreen patch, and had to tinker with compatability to get the game to work.

It looks a little dated, but it's still a great looking game.

I do. It looked interesting, but I only played a matter of a few minutes. On a long list of 'fun to check out sometime'.

I played a lot of Sacrifice back in the day. There was a short golden age for a lot of interplay studios and Shiney made some solid games at the time.

Sacrifice was way ahead of it's time and was more of a MOBA than a standard RTS game as you controlled a hero and there was absolutely no base building at all. Beautiful graphics and art style, fun gameplay, really a hidden gem that's nearing 20 years old.

usually the reason to get a game you previously had on GoG is windows 10 compatability, re-mastering, patches, all DLCs included, other goodies like soundtracks, digital media, etc...

if you played it in 2002, why did you have to buy it again on GoG?
I had it on CD. All of my game cds I either sold or threw away. I have it on steam, but it's been impossible to run. GOG was different though. Got the game running in about 20m. Took a bit, but it's working.

Sacrifice is one of my all time favorite games and was an interesting twist on the RTS genre.

I always imagined it as similar to Warhammer Realm of Chaos...magically infused realms with bizarre combat units all influenced by the chaos god they serve.

No problem. Glad I could help.

Were you able to get it working? It took me some time. I had to run that Windows diagnosis, and there is a widescreen fix as well. The widescreen fix is below.

Was a really good game, I absolutely dominated my friend in it all the time. Whenever he makes some claim about whooping my ass in some other game I just exclaim Sacrifice! and trigger his ptsd.

Yeah it seems to work okay. Didn't have time to play it much though. Hopefully on the weekend :D

And thanks for the widescreen fix!
