    Krome Studios have released their remaster of the third and final chapter of the original Bard's Tale trilogy, The Bard's Tale III: Thief of Fate. Originally released in 1988, Bard's Tale III was even bigger than its predecessor and considerably weirder, sending the player on a journey through a variety of parallel worlds to challenge a mad god. For that reason, it took Krome longer than expected to complete the remaster, although a beta version has been available since December. Unlike the previous two games in the series, Bard's Tale III's development was primarily led by Burger Bill (now Rebecca) Heineman. Considering her history with this remaster, it's not surprising that she doesn't appear in the launch trailer:


    Owners of the remastered Bard's Tale Trilogy pack have received the third game as a free update. In addition to the game itself, Krome used the extra development time to finalize the promised optional Legacy Mode, which brings the games in line with their original 1980s releases in terms of mechanics. There are a whole bunch of new quality-of-life improvements as well. Details about all of that, including an extensive changelog, are available in the release announcement post on Steam. Now, onward to Wasteland!

    Aaaarrr... the paiiiin! That outside (Wilderness etc.) in the classic/remake is much more open than the "open areas" in BT4. The exploring is almost like Skyrim! While BT4 only has these fucking serpentine paths! :argh:

    Now I just have to get a new computer to play the trilogy. Now the question will be will they release a BTCS for people to create more content and modules?

    It's incredible the Codex still hates trans people after everything they've done for the incline.

    The first mention of trannys in this thread is your virtue signaling. It could have been a tranny free thread, but you just couldn't help yourself.

    Good job.

    The memories...I have to admit, I struggled through this game on the C64 back in the day, and it took a hell of a long time to finish. The random encounters.....every couple of steps, another encounter. Totally turned me off the subgenre.

    I was so happy when I discovered Dragon Wars was hybridised with Wasteland and not more of the same thing.

    I wonder why from Tarmitia only the Black Slayers are in the trailer and not other interesting denizens.

    They don’t want to spoil it? Tarjan pulls back his hood and it’s Fargo you see.

    I was thinking about Fargo always having been Tarjan, why he would
    have chosen this career and this life. But then again, he is the Mad God.

    In retrospective this might be able to explain many things.
    Looking back, at decisions by him, design directions enforced,
    wondering, why in the name of Cthulhu did he do that...

    ...well, he's a mad god wandering through time and space.
