New Apple II Game "Lawless Legends" Nearing Completion
#370014 - 09/30/17 07:39 PM


This is not exactly news, but it is to ME, and I figured some of you may not be aware, so I thought I'd share:

Lawless Legends, a new Apple II RPG with a "Bard's Tale" look-and-feel, is nearing completion. It's shaping up to be a really nice looking game, quite an impressive achievement given the extreme limitations of a system originally released in the 1970s.

Retro games are rarely released for this old but highly-regarded computer (are there any others?) so this is pretty exciting stuff!

The question is why anyone would actually want a game in this age to look and feel anything like The Bard's Tale.

Because The Bard's Tale was a fantastic game, and some of us who were around long enough to remember playing it when it was new, are nostalgic for those kinds of games? I'm surprised you would even question that.

Thanks, Moose! Hopefully a final game will be released soon enough. Full disclosure though: I had no part in this game's development, so I take no credit. I hope I haven't misled anyone.

At least 33,741 people apparently would.
