Dungeon Master / Chaos Strikes Back HD - Real Time RPG Remake ( INDIE )

Quote:
Dungeon Master isn't just a game, it's a religion. Even though the game was made in 1987 for the Atari ST (and a PC port was made two years later) the fanbase is quite big today. This 'mother of all rpg's' was certainly groundbreaking when it appeared, both in gameplay and graphics. The 3D first person perspective was still rather unheard of in those days, as most games were side- or topview. The fact that you'd have a team of 4 characters that you could each specialise and the huge dungeon to explore made it an instant hit. The sheer amount of ports for this game for every operating system and 3d engine you can imagine proves that Dungeon Master isn't forgotton at all!

Story:
Your master, a wizard, has been doomed to a life in limbo, due to an accident with a magical artifact. His evil half, Lord Chaos, has taken control of the large dungeon and your task is to defeat him. The only problem is that you are yourself also touched by the accident and can not take a physcial form. Luckily in one of the first rooms of the dungeon, the souls of many brave adventures can be ressurected. In the 'Hall of Champions' you have to pick up to 4 Champions with which you're going to try an solve the quest. There are magicians, priests, ninjas and fighters to choose from. They al have a lot of different starting skills, stats and equipment.

Awesome stuff, played DM to death on the ST, but could never quite complete it.

There is someone here who laughs too hard at everything

I remember there was a trick with the strongest warrior bloke in the hall of heroes who started with zero mana, who you could eventually get to learn a tiny bit of mana using potions and casting the crappiest spell over and over and thus eventually train him up to be a full tank mage type Classic game.

Great game and great memories, I used to look forward to getting in from work to play this back in the day.

All we need now is FTL's other title Oids to be given some love and I will be a happy chappy.

Glad someone posted the story; finished the origional and never really figured what was going on in the ending!

Punching screamers to death for ninja levels was pretty funny.

Whats this Theron's quest thing? Never heard of it.

EDIT: they even had dumbed console ports back then!
