Albion

Albion is a science fiction role-playing game (RPG) developed and published by German studio Blue Byte Software. It was released in 1995 for MS-DOS and later for Amiga. Albion is notable for its blend of traditional RPG elements with a unique setting and storyline.
The game takes place on the planet Albion, a world with a rich history and diverse ecosystems. Players assume the role of Tom Driscoll, a space pilot who crash-lands on Albion while investigating a mysterious signal. Upon landing, Tom discovers that Albion is inhabited by two distinct races: the indigenous, tribal-like inhabitants known as the Iskai, and the technologically advanced, human-like people called the Celts.

Albion review

Computer Games Magazine (1996): "Albion is a breath of fresh air for the RPG crowd. It offers something old, something new as the cliche goes. Though it may not offer enough CD-chrome to impress a new generation of SVGA indoctrinated gamers, those who cut their teeth on the likes of Might and Magic, Wizardry, and Ultima may find that the future looks a little brighter because of this latest offering from Blue Byte."

    @Rennie: I suggest using some front-end. D-Fend can make your life much easier with DOS games

    The graphics reminds me of the Bitmap Brothers games for Amiga.
