Abandonware DOS title

Darklands

Darklands was a unique historical isometric RPG that mixed real historical data from medieval Germany during the 15th century with a touch of folklore and fantasy. Unfortunately it was also the only Microprose RPG of that kind and beauty. The original game box contained a huge manual with info on european folklore (including the lives of saints) and a beautiful paper map. The gameplay is open ended and the player is free to complete quests, follow the storyline or simply wander and combat.

Collector's corner:

An Amiga version of Darklands was considered but the game was judged as too large to be played from a floppy disk and the potential market of hard disk equipped Amigas was not large enough.

At least one third-party commercial character editor was advertised for Darklands.
