The Magic Candle series: almost like Ultima
The Magic Candle is a series of old school RPGs developed by Mindcraft much like Ultima. You control a party of adventurers in a top-down perspective environment. You can explore towns, fight monsters, talk to people, manage your inventory and even get someone of your party to work for a while in order to gain some money.
Mindcraft also developed two strategy games set in the Magic Candle universe: Siege and Ambush at Sorinor.
The games in the series are:
- The Magic Candle (1989)
- Keys to Maramon (1990)
- The Magic Candle 2: The Four and Forty (1991)
- Siege (1992)
- The Magic Candle 3 (1992)
- Ambush at Sorinor (1993)
- Bloodstone: an Epic Dwarven Tale (1993)
