    likewise Ultima 1-9 (and the pre game that launched that series (starts with an A but carnt remember name). Didnt get into Zork, Bards tale was ok (i prefered Ultima).
    Game thats hardly mentioned is Buck Rodgers that game was also fun (though tough when starting out) and the old DnD games series.

    Wish they would bring games like that back or redo them to not lose what they had but to bring them upto date in todays world.
    its Akalabeth, i remember ordering it , and it arrived in a sandwich bag with instructions hand typed on an index card .... was awesome:)

    You can get it here on Good Old Games for free. https://www.gog.com/game/akalabeth_world_of_doom

    Garriot provides it at no charge. Pretty cool. I think it's also packaged in one of the Ultima bundles.

     Grimoire V2 is finally complete the manual will be availble for free from the store page soon for anyone to use ...GJ Cleve ... And its 50% off at 9.99, thats a really good deal for so much game , the learning curve is steep , but the manual should help ...Very deep party based crawler

    So youre saying it has 1995 graphics and this is supposed to entice us?

    IDK man,maybe 20 years ago i would play it but it does not look like anything evolved over 23 years.It looks more like it was scrapped and sat on the shelf for a very long time and now seeing how anything sells now a days,he figures let's do this.

    The mapping in the video sure look like a direct copy of Wizardry for sure.I just feel if you are going to take this long,you need to update everything and bring it up to par.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Finding the game a lot of fun

    But the steam forums for it are sure good entertainment. Literal trolls downvoting the game because of no manual lol. Guess they never saw the steam GUIDE section every game on steam has...

    I shall check this out.

    I noticed it went from Mixed to Very Positive after V2. . then I noticed the note at the end of the release info asking people to post reviews. . there are only 62 "recent" so that could be easy to get things to  Very Positive.

    Did V2 really make the game that much better?  I think for the price I might check it out.

    Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!

    It's actually a really good game - if you are a fan of the old dungeon crawler type games (which just happen to be my favorite type of RPG)

    Only have about 10 hours in so far - I'll be devoting a lot more time into it as soon as I finish Bards Tale Thief of Fate - about 90% done there, will be finishing that this week.

    Don't forget the other SSI games like the Phantasie series or Questron :)

    Its an awesome game if you enjoy turn based, party based dungeon crawlers.

    Need the manual though- badly...A discussion on Steam highlights this https://steamcommunity.com/app/650670/discussions/0/1744480967002484102/ as everything is guesswork and things dont work as most would assume.

    I have about 50 hours in from around release and its great- But really needs a manual and as much as I enjoy it i'm not delving into a game this complex without one and find out ive been building my party wrong or gimp myself when I'm 300 hours in.

    I would also say this has the potential to be better than 'Wizardry'- The dungeons and puzzles are really well designed, the story is well written, theres depth and layers upon layers of complexity...But...That...manual...Dammit...

    I honestly like not having a manual - because guesswork (while it can be frustrating) also deepens the mystery.

    The game is simply not for you - and that's ok.

    For me - it's worth every cent.

    Yes, normally I would agree-

    But at this juncture it looks like putting Intelligence or wisdom on a caster has no bearing- Things like that that are completely non-intuitive. Finding out you wasted points putting Intelligence on a mage does not make for good gaming in a potentially 600 hour long game.

    edit- Thats a good reason for many of the negative reviews- ive also reviewed it negative because the manual really is a necessity or at least the dev answering specific questions about what does what) but its all been left a mystery..Even the guides that are up are all speculative.

    I bought this on release day we have been promised the manual would be coming soon and then were given like 3 release months that came and went. Still waiting.

    23 years in development, number of years early access = None.

    Old school, when they knew how to make games without cheating players.

    sorry, but i don't see it, the only resemblance to beholder is the gfx.

    it has a bloody map ingame, wtf.... took 23 years to develop, and we gave you a map! to completely screw the hole idea of exploring.

    Sid Alpha, i would take him at his word tbh, so with that i'll add that developer to my own personal blacklist, be interesting to see if Jim Sterling has done anything on this too as he tends to expose the dirty devs also, not that there is any lack of those.  :/
