The New Year Mod for Heroes of Might and Magic II is a Christmas-themed graphical conversion of HoMM2 assets intended to keep the original graphic style. The idea of this mod was born suddenly, when a few fellow forum members on Russian HandBookHMM.ru community in December 2014 thought about a new form of an offline tournament which would be able to revive the HoMM2 gaming community to some degree.
