I see through the subliminal messaging. Makes me want to install the game.
Have you checked out Hero-U?
Oh yeah! Did a double Kickstarter for it. Can't remember why they did that. Anyways, thanks for mentioning Hero-U, because I may have missed it, as many Ultima players missed Shroud.
Ditto! I only came across SOTA when a former Counselor of mine found me in RL after prolly not talking for 10 years and told me about it -- I would have kickstarted it or backed it, if I knew about it before then. I didn't know about Rogue to Redemption until I found it by accident , so I couldn't back it - but I backed Summer Daze. Now I need to replay Rogue to Redemption and try another romance path..
Oh - and I'm sure all you Sierra fans out there know that there was a fan remake of Trial by Fire (Hero's Quest 2 / Quest for Glory 2 .. thanks Mattel)
Awesome. QFG 2 was my favorite. Was always bummed they never did a VGA remake!
I like the old SSI Games.
Pool of Radiance
Pools of Darkness
Curse of the Azure Bonds
Secret of the Silver Blades,
Champions of Krynn
Gateway to the Savage Frontier
and the first MMORPG SSI had - Nerverwinter Knights.
Love their Dungeon Crawler games.
Eye of the Beholder series.
I still have a bunch of these from the early 90's in a box in my closet. I wish I had an old computer to play them along with Ultima 4-5-6.
Yep - I played all those SSI guys back in the day and then got into the novels.
If you loved the old SSI Gold Box games, if you didn’t know, the Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventure engine/game (that’s the engine they used for the Gold Box Games) still has an active modding community.
For a 27 year old game, that’s honestly amazing.
GOG.com has the Forgotten Realm Series set, Each set is about $5.99. Was playing some last night. Thank god they have the Journals in PDF Format. lol
They need to get this dude on the Journal/Dialogue/Questing UI!
I was a huge fan of the VGA remake of 1 and of #4! (Even if it was a little buggy )
I still remember when Sierra called me from a meeting to get extra details from a bug report I sent them on their BBS for QFG1 VGA remake - something to do with crashing the game around the faeries / mushroom patch - that was pretty cool.
My next fun one was when I figured out an item dupe bug and some other game breaking issue in Ultima 7 the Black Gate, and I called OSI and spent like 30 minutes on the phone with someone explaining the bug.
I remember being excited when I got a free extra game box when the new set of U7 floppies with the updated version came.
If there are any Lucasfilm/Lucasarts games fans out there -- I found a fan sequel to Zak McKracken a few days ago, and played through it on English language hard. It's nostalgic, has easter eggs, cameos, etc - but the writing and dialog is a bit lengthy and a lot of the VO is a bit cheesy/needs better sound editing. I'd give it probably 3.5/5 -- definitely "worth playing" IMHO.
Did you hear that ADGI did a remake? It is really good! http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/qfg2/
I did not! Thanks for the tip I will definitely check it out!
LOL I told you about that earlier in this thread but you forgot! (I didn't include a link tho!)
Lol you're right! My apologies!
None needed my friend, I am just busting your hump - I am happy you are enjoying or will soon enjoy the awesome remake they did
Don't forget to check out Hero-U! I am thinking of replaying it again for the 3rd time and putting combat on extreme/hard, since they just released a small patch - and then they have a sequel coming in the near future.
Have you played Thimbleweed Park? It feels like it could have come out in the 90s from Lucasarts.
