Istaria: Chronicles of the Gifted, started out as ‘Horizons: Empires of Istaria’. After a few company buys out, piss poor management and pretty much running the game into the ground.. it was picked up by Virtrium, a company made up of former players, that has been slowly blowing new life into dragging game.
While going though my Horizons information for a dead project, I found some of the original concept art. Istaria was to be a totally different game to what it is now. Part of me hopes that Virtrium will continue the bug fixes and return Istaria to it’s former glory.
This image is size comparison of all the races that where to be in Horizons.
