Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans

Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans is an unreleased point-and-click adventure game done by Blizzard Entertainment in 1997. It is set in the Warcraft universe and the story is about a young orcling that was secretly raised by the human Alliance.

The development of the game was out-sourced to Animation Magic, who produced twenty-two minutes of fully animated sequences, the artwork and the game engine while Blizzard provided all the designs, backgrounds, sound recordings and the storyline. However, due to unforeseen technical problems coupled with communication limitations between Blizzard and the Russian animators at Animation Magic, the whole project got cancelled days before E3 in 1998.

Extended footage of the game appears on YouTube since 2010, recorded and uploaded by a single person. The game itself is not publicly available and will be lost if no one is able to preserve it.

In this video, you can see the official trailer and an exclusive interview issued in the German magazine PC Games 6/97. If you don’t understand the German parts, you can turn on closed captions.
