I'm working my way through Wiz6 for the first time right now, trying to find a party build I like (currently in the belfry, grinding bats). I'd be delighted to find more of these games. Thankfully, I still have Wiz7 to go, plus all of the Might&Magics, and the Bard's Tales, praise be to DosBox.

I've been sorely tempted to have a go at creating a console-only Wizardry-style game, but I've got way too much else going on to take on another project. It was nice to see Devil Whiskey, though I wasn't much enamored with the result. There's probably more out there like it, but I think we'll only ever see the like from small, indy houses.

And then by coincidence, while looking for some console programming info for a test app I need, I just now stumbled upon this site: http://www.taat.fi/tmdc/

It never occurred to me that you could do things like this or this with ASCII graphics.

Obviously us cranky old CRPGers aren't then only ones who still like consoles.

Hammer, anvil, forge and fire,
chase away the hoofed liar.
Roof and doorway, block and beam,
chase the Trickster from our dream.
