Background

The player learns that they are the ward of Gorion, and know nothing about your past. Your peaceful life in Candlekeep, where books are a ticket into the gates, is threatened by some mysterious danger, sending you on a great mission.

Features

  • 5 CDs filled with prerendered backgrounds, compelling music, and gameplay
  • Every location is unique since our backgrounds are rendered rather than tiled
  • Everything displayed in vibrant 16-bit color (65536 different colors)
  • Isometric, top-down view gives a birds eye view of the action
  • 3D height maps for realistic travel over terrain - actually climb stairs, fall into pits, and traverse rocky areas
  • Dynamic full color lighting effects
  • Realistic day to night changes in the lighting of the world

  • Rain, snow, fog, lightning, all occuring in real-time

  • Dynamic changes in character appearance - as you change a character's weapons and armor, you see it on that character
