It's been five years and a lot of work in the making, but I'm really excited to announce that the programming team I belong to, 6502 Workshop, has just completed and released our first game, Nox Archaist. The game is written to run on an 8-bit Apple //e, IIc, or IIgs computer, just like the early Ultima games! That said you don't need an Apple II to run it, it comes packaged with an emulator that lets you run the game on a Windows or MacOS based computer. Speaking of the early Ultima games, Lord British appears as an important NPC in this game! You may find a number of other familiar faces if you search hard enough. This game looks and feels a lot like what we imagine Ultima VI would have looked like if development continued on the Apple II after Ultima V. Anyhow, I'm really proud of this game, and if you hold a soft spot in your heart for the Apple II or the earlier Ultima games, I invite you to take a look! (Besides game design, I also did the vocals for the video trailer below, as well as the in-game vocals. Yes, in-game vocals on an Apple II. Cool, huh?) By the way, this isn't a Kickstarter - The game is complete, released, and can be ordered immediately! We've got a digital-only version, as well as a standard and collector's edition boxed set that very much feels like what you'd get off the shelf at your local computer store at the tail end of the 1980s. I hope you check it out.
