Keep on the Borderlands Coming Soon


A Circle of Eight developer working on the Keep on the Borderlands mod for Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil video game has put out the word that a demo for the mod will be out soon. Both Troika’s Temple of Elemental Evil and the KotB mod are based on old school Advanced Dungeons and Dragons modules.

This is yet another example of a Troika game that has continued to evolve long after the company’s demise and Atari abandoned the license. The fan community continues to support and innovate the title. Another Troika game that has strong fan community following and support is Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, which still receives regular unofficial patches.

ToEE was a FANTASTIC game with some major bugginess. Fortunately, i only noticed a few issues. I loved it and would buy a sequel immediately. I remember hearing about the circle of 8 guys back in the day and how they were issuing patches and stuff, but I had no idea this was still going on. I hope it works out.

@turkleton – You really should check into Circle of Eight’s work on the ToEE. They completely reworked the game exterminating bugs and adding back in key elements from the original AD&D module. For example the children.

I’m really looking forward to see what they’ve done with KotB.

Thanks for the advice, I think I will. I’ll have to go see if I can find my copy and reinstall it. I’m sure its buried in my closet somewhere.

Remember, it also needs a serial number so hope you can find your manual as well.. I can’t reinstall it because I can;t find the Serial Number anywhere anymore.. sigh.

Circle of Eight is one of my favorite groups, simply because they refuse to let ToEE die. The game had so much potential until Troika died out. Luckily, this community was ready and willing to step in and provide excellent patch support.
