The standards from Blizzard have always been extremely high, and for this reason, they've let many of their game projects fall to the wayside for not living up to desired levels of excellence. One of these was Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans, which was cancelled in 1998 but has recently been leaked online.

Here you have a graphic adventure of the most classic style (even for its time). It's a point and click game with hand-drawn 2D animations where you play the part of Thrall in events before Warcraft III, which returned to real-time strategy in the line of its predecessors. The control system takes a lot from other LucasArts adventures like Sam & Max and The Curse of Monkey Island, where it abandoned its verb system to offer a more intuitive handling where possible actions are shown in a small window over the elements themselves that allowed for interaction.

Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans is a fantastic graphic adventure. While the leaked version isn't the final one, the game is practically complete, even including professional dubbing and high-quality cinematic scenes. It's a shame that in the world of video games, the technology used takes precedence over the essential quality when it comes to publishing products.
