Heroes of Might and Magic (HOMM) is a venerable gaming franchise. With roots stretching all the way back to the mid-1990s, HOMM is an enduring piece of gaming history. The PC game HOMM was and still is a turn-based strategy (TBS) game. TBS games occupy the evolutionary niche between tabletop games like the original Warhammer and real-time strategy (RTS) games like StarCraft. TBS games were once very popular, but as computing power increased, RTS games became more popular and, today, RTS games dominate (Or should we say zerg?) the strategy games landscape. However, some notable TBS games, like Sid Meier's Civilization and HOMM, still have their followings.
TQ and Ubisoft, the original developer of HOMM have now teamed up, creating Heroes of Might and Magic Online, the MMO.
