Megatraveller 1: the Zhodani conspiracy
"Paragon has created one of the best science-fiction role-playing games ever for the computer. If you have played Game Designers' Workshop's MEGATRAVELLER system, you'll find that this computer version faithfully follows that RPG." - Dragon magazine review
"Overall this could be a very absorbing game for an experienced and dedicated RPG player, but is unlikely to generate enough excitement to suck in the beginner." - ACE magazine review
Downloads for Megatraveller 1: the Zhodani conspiracy
Based on the pen and paper RPG "MegaTraveller", by Game Designers' Workshop.
Development presented Paragon with technical challenges because this game, distributed on floppy disks for computers hosting as little as 512 KB RAM, simulates the detailed game mechanics of the Traveller tabletop role-playing games within a sizable game world.
A sequel, MegaTraveller 2: Quest for the Ancients, was published in 1991; a second sequel was planned but never released.
