I might try that.  I've tried to get into the Wizardry series, but haven't stuck with it.  Would you say this game is easier to get into than the Wizardry games?  If not, what's the best Wizardry to start with?

This would probably be easier to get into since you don't have the history of Wizardry to deal with.  It's a good one and done with no back history or continuing games to worry about.

As for the actual Wizardry series I would do the second trilogy if you can get a verion to run on newer systems.  6 - 8 is one cohesive story from beginning to end.

Just remembered about the most obscure game I ever played.  It was an fps called Killing Time.  The screwy thing took me forever to find back then. It was a great horror themed shooter with a great story and some interesting fmv sequences.

Is Empires & Dungeons free or not? The site's so convoluted and there is the line of "no demo/test restrictions", so?

Empires & Dungeons is not free. I do recall there being a demo though of the original around the internet somewhere. I don't think the dev actually sells the original anymore unfortunately. Just the sequel. Which is almost exactly the same but just with a arabian instead of medieval theme.

I second the ravenloft dnd games as well.

Pulseman for the Megadrive is quite fun too. Like Sonic meets megaman.

I'm frustrated that no one has attempted a remake of the Ravenloft games or a continuation of them.  Of course the ownership and licensing for Ravenloft has bounced around so badly the last few years that it would probably have to be a fan community project.
