I tried many times to get into Bard's Tale. I couldn't. Found it to be a pale imitation of the great game that was Alternate Reality.
Holy crap! Someone who played AR! Yes, that was a freaking amazing game(s). Too bad the series never made it past the second module.
Thank you! Awesome! Yes very sad they never got another game out. Did you know in 2001-ish they were trying to make an MMO version? Nothing much came of it except some concept artwork and music remixes (which are great).
Yes The City was amazing. The original A8bit version of course.
I loved how immersive it was and there was often a great sense of danger, especially at night! Also loved the loot and potion system which sadly has never been done like that were you can taste it and the color/texture gives you a good idea what is it.
By '87 I was fully on board with the Amiga and was waiting for it to come to that but as we know that was canceled. Did get the Amiga version of The City which was nice but IIRC it did lack some of the depth of the A8 version. Great music on both platforms!
Nice to meet you here Drayth.
