Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire

After the success of Ultima 6: The False Prophet, Origin decided to "create worlds" not part of the popular Ultima series (strictly speaking) using the same engine of Ultima 6. They came up with two games: The Savage Empire and Martian Dreams. The Savage Empire is set in a stone age-like world and features prehistoric tribes, dinosaurs, insectoid and reptilian species, and NPCs with familiar names to Ultima fans.

    The second game in the Ultima Series that I ever played. This game made me fall in love with Ultima.
