    Bump - this needs more visibility. 

    Come on people - freakin Bards Tale Trilogy remastered - I am totally replaying all of it again.

    For RPG fans who never played this - this will be the best $15 spent of your life.

    IMO this is one of the best RPG trilogies of all time.


    Im pretty hyped , gonna play till im bleary eyed again

    Is it going to include the book you had to look up DRM codes in?  I've still got mine.

    I really, really hope they made big changes in controls, but if not it looks like they added mouse functionality for movement, and hopefully the whole UI. 

    I don't know if I'm alone in this or not but I'm too old to relearn super savage control schemes.  And the controls for these games were really, really bad.  Much worse than you're thinking in your head right now if you weren't playing games during this time.  This was during a phase when developers seemed to want to break your mind by including every key on the keyboard as a control and thought mouse functionality was for losers.

    I couldn't play the WL version that came with WL2 due to savage controls, but I don't think that was a remaster.  

    I wonder why they are releasing this before BT4.  I think it might hurt sales of BT4 if kids relate the products in their mind and try this first.  But I'm also one of the few people my age that seems to be far more excited for BT4 than the remastered trilogy so I obviously don't have my finger on the pulse of what older people want, never mind what kids want.

    The Bards Tale 4 Kickstarter was the best deal ever. I think for $20 I got Bard’s Tale 4, Bards Tale 1,2,3 And Wasteland 2.

    Looking forward to this!

    If you backed 4... I thought you got all the rest of them with the backing?

    Oh I don't know, I didn't pay attention to that, just that "I backed 4." However, it seems that steam is offering them for free anyway.

    The trilogy remaster is $15 on Steam 
    Ah ok, it seems that it's "Legacy Mode" that is available for free.

    I was going to ignore despite my forum avatar being derived from the first game until I noticed they added automapping.

    No way could I go back to graph paper, especially in those totally dark zones with spinners and teleporters, those were brutal back in the day.

    Soon...


    Here's how the process will work.

    • Starting Tuesday, backers at the $20 reward tiers and above will receive an email from CrowdOx asking you to specify either a Steam or GOG key for the game. Remember to keep an eye on your spam/filter folders in case it ends up there. 
    • Soon after you make that selection, you will receive another email - the latest edition of your Digital Fulfillment email, this one now containing your chosen code. 
    • Once you receive the code, you can follow these instructions on how to redeem it for Steam and GOG.

    A few things to remember: 

    • The Bard's Tale Trilogy is currently Windows only and contains the first volume. The latter two volumes, along with the Legacy Mode, arrive later in the year. 
    • Please keep in mind that we have tens of thousands of backers to send keys and emails to. It will likely take a little while for the full list to be processed, so don't panic if your digital fulfillment email does not arrive right away. We appreciate your patience.
