The Legacy and Piratenleben are indeed good, I often visit the Legacy when I want to get info on really old games, and the Piratenleben seems to be (as far as I've heard) one of the better ones or even best Mods for Gothic 2.

Great idea HiddenX and thanks to everyone for the links. :)

I have wanted to try the Prelude to Darkness, on that link the full version says link no longer good casue of some violation of Terms of Use.
There is a 75 meg version linked in their download section, maybe a demo?

In reguard to Sith Lord Restoration they are content complete and just bug catching now, yay! :)

How do I contribute a game to the Underdogs page ?

Background : Larian had once made a tiny game called "Imprunner". I thought it would be a good idea to place it there to keep it from being forgotten.

And I've even got an official "okay". Literally.

Alrik: there is a suggestions subforum at the Underdogs site, but her todo-list is very long. I'm not sure its the best place to host a game. If you want to spread it after hosting it elsewhere you could "advertise" (in a mature and civilized way so you wont be censored for spam) it in their reasonably active forum though.

For non-Hitch-Hikers :-)

It is a curious fact, and one to which no one knows quite how
much importance to attach, that something like 85\% of all known
worlds in the Galaxy, be they primitive or highly advanced, have
invented a drink called jynnan tonnyx, or gee-N'N-T'N-ix, or
jinond-o-nicks, or any one of a thousand or more variations on
the same phonetic theme. The drinks themselves are not the same,
and vary between the Sivolvian ''chinanto/mnigs'' which is ordinary
water server at slightly above room temperature, and the
Gagrakackan ''tzjin-anthony-ks'' which kills cows at a hundred
paces; and in fact the one common factor between all of them,
beyond the fact that the names sound the same, is that they were
all invented and named before the worlds concerned made contact
with any other worlds.

Yay! My 1st addition to this thread will be for the Yendorian Tales series of games.
Chapter 1 might be rough to get going in XP. Chapters 2 and 3 should work fine though.

http://www.swgames.com

Yendorian Tales Chapter 2 and 3 can best be described as Might and Magic 3-5 clones. The game looks and feels a lot like those games.

Star Control 2 (http://sc2.sourceforge.net/) (aka The Ur-Quan Masters) is freeware now. It's a lot like an old classic RPG called Planet's Edge, but with RPG elements sacrificed (and admittedly there weren't that many in PE) in favour of a great story.

Another game that I just thought about was Minions of Mirth. MoM is a single and somewhat MMORPG along the lines of Guild Wars. It was made by just two people primarily and then the community stepped in and start adding resources (quests, artwork, crafting, alchemy, etc). The game is like $30 to register but there is no monthly fee for playing. I haven't played this in about a year but it had quite a bit of content back then and was being updated constantly.

http://www.prairiegames.com

Corwin
February 16th, 2007, 02:26
I can recommend both Laz and MoM as great, fun games. For Laz check out my review at the Dot, and I wrote an interview with the devs of MoM back there as well. I'm too lazy to look up the links!! :)

A rather unexpected thing :

Intel's "IT-Manager" (http://www.intel.com/cd/business/enterprise/emea/deu/102404.htm)

This page is in German, but an English-language page should also exist, I assume.

It's kind of an online game.

The game consists in managing an IT company.

Got this recommendation from a friend, tried it out and couldn't stop playing until I was through (ok, I had to sleep too). That's game play for ya!

It's a simple, but very fun mix between games like Zelda 3 or Chrono Trigger and 2D arcade shooters game play wise, and it's freeware, available for PC and Mac.

Funny, I accidentally stumbled over that game last night when I was looking for something entirely different in google. And I didn't see your comment until now.

Okay, the search was related to something else you said in another thread about Planescape: Torment, but still.. that's so far-fetched it's a little spooky. :uhoh:

I don't really know whether this link is legal or not - please remove if not - but I've found site containing a few game fonts : Game Fonts (http://www.thealmightyguru.com/GameFonts/Index.html)

The database calls itself "comprehensive", but it actually lacks a lot of fonts I've seen before. I'd rather call it relatively small - from my personal point of view. And I have the subjective impression as if it is very biased towards consoles.

Nevertheless it has an "Ultima" section.

It's kinda lame to post a link to my own game, but well it's an indie project and it's interesting ;).

Rose Of Eternity 2 - Cry The Beloved (http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Modules.Detail&id=32009&id=5208)

Website (http://www.roseofeternity.com/)

Since the beginning of time, the Rose Of Eternity has been in the mystical Garden Of Roses, tended to by the Keeper Of The Rose. It is said that the Keeper Of The Rose has the most beautiful singing voice, rivaled by none. However, she does not sing for joy, but rather out of pain, for she is a prisoner in these gardens, forbidden to ever leave. Humanity is to blame for her misfortune, for as long as there is war and strife, she will be doomed to stay in the Garden Of Roses, and sing.
As she grows older, as petals fall off of the Rose Of Eternity, she continues to sing, in the hopes that mankind will change, but they do not. As she begins to become an old woman, people pure of heart are born into the world. These people have the opportunity to change things, but alas, they make the wrong decisions, and the Keeper Of The Rose is left to her prison.And her singing.
As the age ends, she is born anew into the world again, hoping that mankind will change their ways. She has been going through this cycle for 4000 years. Will she ever be freed from her prison? In this life cycle, 6 unknowing people will have the opportunity to make her wish come true...

Don't bother with the original OC. Its well documented from all coreners of Faerun to be a dud. I never looked at it as anything more than a sample mod as the prodcut was a Toolset first with a game slapped on because customers expected it. The henchmen were last week add ons. Bio really (initally) focussed this game on running small campaigns with a DM. The two expansion campaigns are supposed to be good and I'd recommend any of the Premium Mods that were released to the public for free.

I've discovered a small puzzle game which brilliantly creates an aesthetic experience. It is called Crayon Physics and is free to download/play. You can only draw squares in the game and it is fairly short but the creator is currently developing an expanded version called Crayon Physics Deluxe.

The gameplay of Crayon Physics is minimal, the graphics are childish and the music is dreamy. Combined it is original, artistic, warm and pleasant.

Here's a video preview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsTqspnvAaI) of the upcoming Crayon Physics Deluxe.

And this (http://www.kloonigames.com/blog/games/crayon) is where you can download the original Crayon Physics.

Ok let go for some links for Citadel: Adventure of the Crystal Keep:

This games is an old Mac game, to make it run:

1 - Downloading Citadel:

The download link is just bellow the picture at: Macintosh Garden (http://mac.the-underdogs.info/index.php?show=game&id=479).
It seems to be a cleaner version than another version I found elsewhere.
It's a .sit file and can be expand with stuffit, there' s a free extractor for PC like for Mac.

2 - You also need to download the code wheel used as copy protection:

The picture you see here: Macintosh Garden (http://mac.the-underdogs.info/index.php?show=game&id=479), is a part of the code wheel, download it.
Then refresh the page and it will show the second part of the code wheel, download it too.
The way it works is simple and those two pictures will be ok to answer the question of copy protection.
If like me you are blind and find the characters a bit small then pm me an email so I send you bigger snapshots or email to the guy who did them and send me them (lane123456 at hotmail dot com).

3 - You need the Citadel manual:

The game includes a nice contextual in game help but it hasn't all information the guide provides. So it's better to also get the manual.
At this time I haven't yet a link where download it but PM me an email so I send you this manual. The guy who send me the bigger snapshot also send me a pdf of this manual.

4 - You need an emulator running a Mac+ and Mac OS 6.0.8:

On newer system the game is less stable so it's much better to use a Mac+ Rom and OS 6.0.8
Many emulator could apply but one fit quite well and works fine, it's Mini vMac. I'm using the OSX version but the Windows version is well supported and should work fine.
There's a great install guide for Mini vMac Windows at: E-Maculation (http://www.emaculation.com/minivmac/index.html).
This guide provides all but a Mac+ Rom, well you can find a link to one at: http://rolli.ch/MacPlus/ (get there only the rom, not the system disk, for them use instead the links provided in the guide quoted above).
If you are using a Mac you can follow this PC install guide but for using Disk Images on the Mac check this link: http://minivmac.sourceforge.net/image.html

5 - Now you have Mini vMac and Stuffit Expander installed in it you can use it to expand the Citadel .sit archive:

Copy the citadel .sit archive in Mini vMac like the guide explained it to install Stuffit.
Copy this archive inside the stuffit folder.
Launch Stuffit expander and click the command key (with a windows keyboard it's the alt key and the mac option key is the windows key).
Then open the menu File and select open without to release the command key.
Release the command key only when the file dialog is open, then see at bottom of this dialog a new botton "select....".
So select without to open it the stuffit folder where you put the Citadel .sit archive and click on the bottom button "select...".
This will launch an extract of the citadel archive, the files will be in a folder created in the Stuffit folder. Just move it where you want and now Citadel is ready to use.

6 - Backup the file Citadel Save:

This file, Citadel Save, is the save file automatically open and modified when the game is launched.
So before to start play backup the file "Citadel Save" to keep an initial copy.
For managing save files just read the in game help it is very well done.


And now have fun, it's an unknown game but definitely a noteworthy classic even if too few people know this.

Mmm two last quotes:

Save often and make backup, the game can be quite tough sometimes.
And if you found install all that is a challenge, play the game to see what is really a challenge! :biggrin:


EDIT: I added a description of the game in a post (http://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5624):

EDIT2:
- I modified the post to add the section about the manual.
- I removed the mention that you could not install unstuffit on you PC when following the guide I linked.
- I haven't tried by myself on a PC but on a Mac. On PC you could have hassle to install an application that unstuff .sit file on your PC. You could pm me and email so I send you the base stuff to install all without unstuffit on your PC.

I made a post on my blog (http://www.philosophicalgamer.com/gaming-obscure-innovative-roguelike-rpgs/) about innovative, little known roguelikes, the post includes UnReal World, The Doryen Arena, Dwarf Fortress (of course!), Fatherhood, and Alan's Psychedelic Journey, among others.

The focus of the blog is indie games, old school games, roguelikes, linux gaming, and pretty much any other topic which would interest gamers who prefer old school gaming, party based RPGs, and so on.

I'm pretty much hoping to make web design my job, and I feel like there's no better way to go about it than writing about gaming, I know that people at these forums would be interested in the posts.

There's also a link to the Internet Rogue Database, which has all kinds of little known roguelikes, so it's good for finding those little gem rogues that not many people know about.

Star Control 2 (http://sc2.sourceforge.net/) (aka The Ur-Quan Masters) is freeware now. It's a lot like an old classic RPG called Planet's Edge, but with RPG elements sacrificed (and admittedly there weren't that many in PE) in favour of a great story.
I played it a long time ago but from what I remember I don't understand why you had this precision. I have an exact reverse feeling (well sort of as I don't know PE), if there's a game where I had a feeling of a world and events linked with my previous choices, it's this game.

Interesting links for fans of the Gold Box Games done by SSI. These are alll the links to the FRUA (Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures) that I know of. What they have done with that old engine is amazing to say the least. Still can't compare graphically to todays games, but if you want to try something different then you should check some of these places out.

FRUA FORUMS:
(Recenty opened, heatlhy activity on it, they seem to gearing towards releasing an update to FRUA (Dungeon Craft) Any help you need either getting their mods working, mod reviews or about the finer points of the rules within the game. They are the go to guys.
http://ua.reonis.com/

FRUA Yahoo Group:
(Very active!)
http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/ua/

UA File Archive:
(This is where they store all the modules aka adventures. There are just too many to choose from, I would recomened you go to the Yahoo group or the forms and ask about the best adventures out there.)
http://frua.rosedragon.org/

All you need to get started playing these great adventures is:
1. FRUA itself:
It's on Abandonia. I know some people think that even abandonware sites are pirating, but show me where it is being sold and I will change this portion of the post. In the meantime this is one of many that it is available to download.http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/858/Forgotten+Realms+-+Unlimited+Adventures.html

2. You will need UASHELL:
This is a hack that enables the program to use the enhanced features the modders have made to the game. Without it you can still play some of the adventures, but you will only be able to choose *Non-Hacked* adventures. To tell the truth, the hacked adventures add all kinds of features like real intros that they made themselves and being able to use all the other icons and features that just wasn't possible without it.
Here is a great link with tons of info on what UAshell is and does. Plus how to install it and where to download it:
http://frua.isgreat.org/index.php?topic=464.0


3. Follow the instructions for loading UAShell.
4. Load an adventure
5. Off you go on a brand spanking new adventure in the FRUA universe

If you have problems with UAshell or are thinking about making your own adventure then head over to the FAQ, it can pretty much answer any question you have and if it doesn't someone at the forums or Yahoo Group can answer it.
http://www.eledar.net/Gaming/Frua/fruafaq/hacks.htm

Plus I should add, not all of the adventures are Forgotten Realms. They've made space adventures, Super Hero ones and all kinds of them. There is a lot of vairity to what you want to play. They all use the game engine, but other than that they've been remade into new games entirely.

One last thing. Dungeon Craft has been in the making for years now. I'm starting to see a lot more activity concerning that game. I'm hoping that they can finish it some time soon. How soon, I haven't a clue, but at least they're working on it again.
http://uaf.sourceforge.net/

I know a lot of people can't get over the graphics part of the game, but still there are some of us who still like these old game. It's nice to see that new adventures are being built even now and reviewed over at the Yahoo group and the forums. The forums are only a few months old, but has quite a lot of activity on it.

Thanks for the info. Does anyone know of any mods for FRUA that have more Fallout/Arcanum inspired gameplay? Which means more multiple solution paths and different things to do besides non-stop grinding? I really enjoy the gold box games combat, I want some variety in the gameplay as well. IS there anything like this out there (haha!)

Very good single player NWN 1 mod:

Maugeter - The Keys to the City v1.0.4 (http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Modules.Detail&id=5364)

Homepage (http://www.maugeter.com/)

Maugeter is a low-level, low-combat module set in a unique fantasy world. It is a classic tale - you are a nondescript child of farmers who has travelled to the big city in search of adventure, or money, or fame, or power. The big difference is that you are not the foretold one, there's no prophecy and you won't be saving the world. This module is about exploring, meeting interesting characters and adventuring within an imaginative high-magic, low-fantasy urban setting. No one is going to tell you that all their hopes rest with you, because they don't know or care who you are. The city is bigger than you.

Thank you jaxtrasi!

A very nice freeware-rpg:

Everlong (http://www.nealien.com/Everlong/)

turn based combat - cool story - an excellent rpg - 30 to 50 hours of gameplay.

Everlong is a free amateur Role-Playing-Game set in an immersive fantasy world of dragons, knights, and wizards. The mighty and merciless Cirigoth Empire seeks dominion over the entire globe, and it will not be long before they succeed. Soon the kingdom of Seraphia, the last free land of the west, will fall to the Cirigoth's puppet state Tyr-Anon, leaving only the divided countries of the east unconquered.

Trouble is brewing within the vast lands of the Cirigoth Empire, however, as an organization known as the Valiantide continues to generate sympathy and threatens to spark armed rebellion. A dark knight, one of the Cirigoth military elite, has also turned traitor and escaped pursuit.

Despite the immediate danger posed by the Valiantide, the emperor's advisers have convinced him to continue hunting vigorously for the fugitive soldier, whom it is suspected holds a secret and tremendous power. The fate of the world may be decided by which side the dark knight fights for, but the agents of the Cirigoth are closing in and time is running out for him to reach safety from the impending shadow.

Using Enterbrain's RPGMaker2003@ engine, Everlong is designed to create a nostalgic or "old-school" feel similar to the 16-bit and two dimensional RPGs of the SNES era. You must travel through a highly detailed medieval world, interacting with dozens of colorful characters, both friendly and enemy, to advance the story while combating the many monsters that will attempt to hinder your journey. Also be on the lookout for cameos by infamous RPG characters and familiar plot elements.

Highly recommend for turn based combat and big story fans.
2 thumbs up!

+ nice dungeons
+ working economy
+ learn skills from trainers
+ good story
+ very good dialogues and voice overs
+ no auto-leveling
+ enhanced maps and item GUI
+ teleporting costs runes(=money) no fast traveling at will
+ hand made landscape
+ many surprises -> don't forget to go to the theatre ;)
+ find special items/sets/runes in special locations -> exploring is fun

There will be a version with english subtitles soon ( I think they planned it for August). Voiceovers will still be in german, though.

I also love this. The starting dungeon was one of the best I played in quite a while, I think. But I have to mention a caveat as well: I am having severe performance problems outside. I have to test this more if I can tweak it and what FPS I actually get, but it feels like FPS drops to 15 or so as soon as I stepped outside the starting dungeon, plus streaming stutters. Only thing that seems too help atm is turning distant land off, which is a pity. I have a decent if not totally current rig, that runs Oblivion with no problems.
Some other things are a bit rough around the edges (e.g. "cutscenes" that freeze you in place - akward in FP mode), but overall it reaches a near professional quality. I definitely recommend trying this as well and look forward to playing it more.

A nice new indie-game for the younger up-and-coming rpg-fans:

Recettear (http://www.carpefulgur.com/recettear/)

Recettear is a game about an item store, the girl who lives in it, and the fairy whose job it is to make sure that the girl doesn't burn down the item store by accident.

Playing the game involves gathering items - either by playing the markets in the city of Pensee, or grabbing an adventurer and delving into the dungeons that dot the countryside - and selling them to the customers who come through your doors. Tear, the fairy, is here to collect on a loan your father took out - and she'll have to take the store, which doubles as your house, if you can't pay up!

Nehrim Homepage: Detailed guide (http://www.nehrim.de/download/Nehrim_ReadMe.pdf)

NehrimData.esp

and deactivate all other (mod)-files.

Yes I got that pdf but I dont understant this part

Since Nehrim is a total conversion, it would not be advisable to install the mod directly into
the Oblivion installation folder – because in doing so there is simply too much data that will
be overwritten.
· Instead the installer automatically locates your Oblivion directory and copies out all the
needed information to play Nehrim into the Nehrim folder. This is a location on your hard
drive selectable by you.

So I can install Nehrim anywhere in my PC or in its default path?

You can find out more about it, here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?p=2627322#post2627322). Grab the patch, here. (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Brotherhood_of_Shadow_Solomons_Revenge;102679)

Weapons of the Old Republic (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=173733) - Adds 22 unique weapons to the game. They are scattered throughout the galaxy so you'll have to search for them. Both this mod and the previous mod won mod of the year over at StarWarsKnights.com. *Warning* Possible conflict with BOS. I tried installing this one after BOS and it wanted to replace some files. I wasn't sure if it was BOS's files or the games, but wasn't taking any chances. I'm going to try this one out later one day after the corporations ruin PC gaming forever ;)

The Super Enhanced Mod (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=170283) - Now this mod sounds like it's right up my alley. It makes the game more difficult. Here's the summary of the mod from STK: If you think that KotOR has become too easy and want to renew your gaming experience, this mod is for you. The mod alters gameplay by changing armor restrictions, weapon damage, and the challenge level of encounters. Shem also left a few twists and surprises for you to discover along the way.

High Stakes Pazaak (http://www.hosey.org/kotor/pazaak/)- I sorta liked Pazaak, but didn't like that I couldn't bet for any kind of real money. This mod fixes that problem by adding in three pazaak players. The max bet is 500,000 which seems a little extreme, but what the heck it's only virtual money. However, this mod could ruin the game if you cheat at it (save and reload). Play like in real life and deal with the consequences :D

Other than those I don't really see any need to add in any more mods. I don't care about cosmetics and the gameplay was very good even in the vanilla version. The only thing I might want is to make it harder. The Super Enhanced Mod seems to take care of that problem nicely.

There is one mod I'm looking for and if anyone knows where it is I'd appreciate a link. It's called Quest for tk102's birthday. It sounds like a funny little adventure, but all the links for the download are broken. (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=143839)

Is the module "Der Fluch der Zwerge" any good ? It's for NWN and in German language … http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=NWN2ModulesInternational.Detail&id=30

It is from Feline Fuelled Games (http://www.felinefuelledgames.de/) - one of the best german modder / free game teams.

Planescape: Die Traumfängerin series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_Fuelled_Games)


After the release of Herz der Finsternis, Ute Knörzer began the development of the Planescape: Die Traumfängerin (Planescape: The Shaper of Dreams) series, her most ambitious project so far. The first chapter was released on 11 August 2008 and the sixth and last chapter on 30 August 2009.[22][23] Planescape: Die Traumfängerin received the most critical acclaim of all mods developed by Feline Fuelled Games so far with Andreas Bertits of PC Games giving the following review of the second chapter: "The mod by Ute Knörzer will take you into a strange but fascinating world. The appealing story motivates to continue playing with lots of puzzles and twists. The varied and pretty areas, the game changing decisions, the many interesting non-player characters and the exciting fights create a unique gaming experience."[24][25] The first two chapters of the campaign have also been translated into English and are listed as second highest rated mod on NWVault’s top modules list with a score of 9.91 as of May 2010.[26][27]

DoomRL (graphics version) pretty fun rogue like:

http://doom.chaosforge.org/

Ha ha, made the first episode and first levels of second, very fun. I had heard about DoomRL since a long time, but have this graphic and mildly mouse version is perfect to discover it. At super easiest difficulty it's pretty fun, I still don't understand fully the turns mechanisms and how dodge but it's very fun. Too bad it can't be fullscreen and with a bit bigger graphics. Also the Mac version isn't adapted to my French keyboard, but ok very fun anyway.

After Tome4 with a full graphical game and interface, and few time before Dungeons of Dredmor, that's my period of discovering of original Roguelike, last one was Adom many years ago, great one but very classical approach and I'm not tempted anymore by this approach.

That said I regret DoomRL is permadeath, my character hasn't died yet thanks to the difficulty level, but I bet this will happen and I'm not sure how I'll feel to restart all from the beginning.

Telepath RPG: Servants of God (http://sinisterdesign.net/?tag=telepath-rpg-servants-of-god) from Sinister Design is a hardcore turn based combat game with a good story and interesting characters.

Highly recommended if you like challenging games.

I played a part of the demo until my character died isolated in a tavern fight, well the trick was more to escape the fight but I didn't found the solution at first attempt. And I realized I hadn't saved since many hours, lol.

At first it seems like a tactical RPG with focus on story and characters plus the fights and some RPG management, but not really exploration. But I died in an exploration which was more like a true exploration so I don't know and the world map shown in the video seems indicate many area. The price is a bit high for an indie game not too recent but if it's big and the quality is here it worth it.

But I wonder is it a box? The only way to buy it seems through the site and it requires ton of information, address, and so on. i really just want the digital, that's troubling.

It's also a series and Servants of God is the third, the first two chapters are free to play browser games. I just started the second (he mentions himself the first isn't that good) and lol it seems a rather close approach than Servants of God. It's a strange/original mix of Hardcore/Casual/A RPG with voice acting and developed story.

Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden (http://www.talesofgames.com/related_game/barkley-shut-up-jam-gaiden/)

The Great B-Ball Purge of 2041, a day so painful to some that it is referred to only as the “B-Ballnacht”. Thousands upon thousands of the world’s greatest ballers were massacred in a swath of violence and sports bigotry as the game was outlawed worldwide. The reason: the Chaos Dunk, a jam so powerful its mere existence threatens the balance of chaos and order. Among the few ballers and fans that survived the basketball genocide was Charles Barkley, the man capable of performing the “Verboten Jam”…

Flash forward 12 years to the post-cyberpocalyptic ruins of Neo New York, 2053. A Chaos Dunk rocks the island of Manhattan, killing 15 million. When the finger is put on the aging Charles Barkley, he must evade the capture of the B-Ball Removal Department, led by former friend and baller Michael Jordan, and disappear into the dangerous underground of the post-cyberpocalypse to clear his name and find out the mysterious truth behind the Chaos Dunk. Joined by allies along the way, including his son Hoopz, Barkley must face the dangers of a life he thought he gave up a long time ago and discover the secrets behind the terrorist organization B.L.O.O.D.M.O.S.E.S.

A tale of zaubers, b-balls, and atonement; brave dangers unheard of, face spectacular challenges that even the greatest ballers could not overcome, and maybe… just maybe… redeem basketball once and for all in:

About:
Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through. Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way.

The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game will have excellent replayability.

Ok.

So this is an awsome mod that I have yet to try but it might interest a few people here.

Lost Alpha (http://www.moddb.com/mods/lost-alpha).

The graphics are insane!!! :wideeyed:

The thing is that the game is included with this so I'm not sure that this is legal… and it needs tweaking or you will CTD…

Think I'll watch some youtube videos and avoid more headaches…

These modders worked closely with the IP holder / original team so i'm pretty sure its legal.. i remember reading like a year ago that they were working on a deal with them.

I just hope they will continue to patch it.. second patch was supposed to be released last week..
