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!
