Fairy Tale V. 10 Released; Fairy Tale 2 Confirmed For Civ 5

When we first reported on Fairy Tale version 7, we noted that despite initial weakness in difficulty, it was a promising, brilliantly derivative way to spend your time. We didn’t realize at the time how we’d end up playing the dang game over and over and over. Turns out, it’s that much fun, which is why we’ve lapped up subsequent improvements like kittens, but even so we were still shocked by the scope of the latest, Fairy Tale Version 10.

The biggest update yet to the continuing series, V. 10 fixes a lot bugs, improves gameplay and balance, adds several new scenarios, and best of all adds two new nations – Angleeye and Vestalla – bringing the total number of playable civs to an astonishing 22. That’s a hell of a lot of content for a NFP fan creation. Color us impressed. Here’s the official trailer:

You can download it for yourself here. In the meantime, in addition to confirming that development of new content for Fairy Tale will continue despite the release of Civ V, developer Antiscamp also confirms that Fairy Tale 2 is in the works for Civ V:

There will be a Fairy Tale 2 mod for Civilization V. As usual, the point will not be to change the entire gameplay of the Civilization game, but rather, supply the player with an alternate gaming world and setting; the fairy tale slash fantasy cliché ideas will be implemented to the fullest in the future one as well.

Works for me! But perhaps you’ve decided to box your aging copy of Civ IV. Now would be the perfect time to check out our review of Civ V. SPOILER: It’s pretty incredible.
