Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord (Remake)

If you’re a frequent reader on this site, then it is no mystery that Wizardry is one of my all-time favorite gaming franchises. It’s the game that single-handedly created...

Wizardry Online Revival

MURMUR * CHANT * PRAY * INVOKE! Could it be true? Almost five years after the death of Wizardry Online, does the game have a chance at a resurrection? For those of us keeping a close eye on anything Wizardry related, it is starting to sound possible. Recently, a post was made on Reddit’s /r/wizardry board concerning a group of...

Retro Rewind: PC Classics

I’ve discussed retro PC games a number of times on this site. In fact, some of my earliest posts were focused on games from the classic Wizardry series.

Review: Wizardry 8

  Finally, we have the last game in the original Wizardry series; Wizardry 8. For the first time in the franchise we do not have a fancy sub-name for the game. It’s just “Wizardry 8“. Years ago when I operated Kyler’s Wizardry Den (my Wizardry fan site), I interviewed one of the developers and asked why the choice was made to...

Review: Wizardry – Crusaders of the Dark Savant

Onward to the seventh title in the original Wizardry series, Crusaders of the Dark Savant. This game is a direct sequel to Bane of the Cosmic Forge. The storyline picks up right where Bane left off and you can import your characters from the previous scenario if you choose. In this game, our heroes are actually sent to another planet...

Review: Wizardry – Bane of the Cosmic Forge

Here we have the sixth installment in the Wizardry series; Bane of the Cosmic Forge. This title is probably my second favorite game in the Wizardry universe. It is the first entry in the series that was completely free from the influence of the original creators. This time, we are presented with a game created completely by David W. Bradley...
