Rewrite of the Heroes of Might and Magic 3 game engine


The purpose of VCMI project is to create a free implementation of the "Heroes of Might and Magic 3: In the Wake of Gods" engine to overcome limitations of the original engine for better modding support, higher resolutions, bigger map sizes and extended engine limits.

VCMI is a turn-based strategy game where the player controls a number of heroes commanding an army of creatures. The player explores the game map with their heroes, conquers enemy towns and improves their own.

VCMI stands for Vinyar Callor Meletya Ingole which means "New Heroes of Might and Magic" in Quenya.
