Among people who are familiar with him, David W. Bradley is best known as the brilliant designer who took over Sir-Tech's famed Wizardry series after the departure of its original creators in the late 1980s. More recently, Bradley appears to have become an eccentric recluse, notoriously spending a decade rereleasing the same terrible game. But in between those two periods, he created one last game that was pretty decent - Wizards & Warriors. Originally published in 2000 by Activision back when they still dealt with such things, for many years Wizards & Warriors was hard to obtain and hard to run on modern operating systems. Enthusiasts appear to have figured out the latter problem recently, and that may be why Wizards & Warriors was finally released on GOG today. Nobody bothered to create a trailer for this release, so I'll just post GOG's description of the game:
In an enchanted medieval realm known as the Gael Serran, an evil Pharaoh has overcome a curse and returned to wreak havoc. Only the legendary Mavin Sword--a blade forged of twin metals, one cursed by evil, the other blessed by the divine--has the strength to bring his defeat. With the assistance of Kerah, an angel, and Erathsmedor, a dragon, you must engage on a dangerous quest to uncover the legend of the Mavin Sword and bring an end to all evil in the land.
Can you uncover the mysteries of the Sword before terror reigns?
- Encounter over 100 NPCs, battle 350 characters and creatures, wield weapons and cast a myriad of magic spells.
- Create a party of six adventurers and utilize 300 inventory items, including customizable pieces.
- Embark on over 100 quests, mini-quests and adventures, battling in real-time and turn-based combat.
- Discover the Enchanted Isle, Dragon's Den, Dwarven Mines, Liche Dungeon and over 40 other places to explore.
