Legend Entertainment

Game company profile: Legend Entertainment

Legend Entertainment was a renowned video game developer based in the United States, known primarily for their work in the adventure game genre during the 1990s. Founded in 1989 by Bob Bates and Mike Verdu, Legend Entertainment gained recognition for its innovative storytelling, compelling narratives, and immersive gameplay experiences.

One of Legend Entertainment's most notable achievements was the creation of text adventure games, a genre that was popular in the early days of computer gaming. Their text adventures, such as Spellcasting 101 and Timequest, were praised for their humor, intricate puzzles, and engaging storylines.
However, Legend became best known for its transition into graphical adventure games with titles like Companions of Xanth, based on Piers Anthony's Xanth series, and Eric the Unready. These games combined traditional adventure game mechanics with rich graphics, voice acting, and cinematic storytelling, garnering critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base.

Legend Entertainment also developed games based on popular intellectual properties, such as Mission Critical, a sci-fi adventure game, and Wheel of Time, based on Robert Jordan's epic fantasy series.

Despite their success, Legend Entertainment ceased operations in 2004, but their legacy lives on through their influential contributions to the adventure game genre.
