The following blog post carries the personal thoughts of Elder Prince, founder of Blossomsoft Games.
I have something deeply personal to share with all of you. I find myself continuously captivated by the lingering presence of Western Lords, a project that has remained close to my heart. While I am unable to bring it back to life officially at this moment, I am happy to announce that it is currently undergoing a retrospective phase, which will allow us to revisit its treasured legacy.
In its heyday around 2004, Western Lords amassed a dedicated following. However, it took a backseat to the development of Eternal Eden, a successful venture that encountered its fair share of challenges in the following decade.
Throughout the passing years, the vision for Western Lords has expanded in the depths of my imagination. I am no longer content with keeping it silenced and hidden away. This remarkable project deserves a memorial online shrine, a testament to its immense potential until the day it can finally be fully revived. It is my way of conveying that Western Lords was never completely dormant. Therefore, I will maintain a dedicated section that will be actively curated moving forward, with both a mix of old updates but also new updates with hidden stuff that were never published before. I invite you to freely explore its contents in the days and weeks to come, as we embark on this exciting journey together. Another good reason for you to bookmark the website.
And of course, I am committed to preserving the nostalgic essence of the Gameboy Advance and Nintendo DS eras.
The inspiration behind creating this shrine was ignited after I discovered that many individuals continues to search for the long-lost Western Lords project. In particular, a website known as ‘Unseen64’ has emerged as a significant source of this curiosity.
To all the loyal followers of Western Lords from the 2000s, I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments. Let me know if you would relish discovering new tidbits about this cherished project.
