    Oh this is looking nice...I can see wasteland in there, and Dragon Wars, and a little Goldbox too...I cannot see the Ultima really.

    Any word on what kind of combat system they are using?

    Old school blubber only complete with random monster encounters in a normal and populated city.
    Looks good.

    I read the title to this thread and wondered if I had stepped through a time portal.

    Looks pretty neat, I don't like that style of movement though. Why is it not tile based?

    I'm playing the game, it's cool.
    My only complain is indeed the unhandy movement but I'm getting used to it.

    I killed some shit, died several times, opened some chests, buy some stuff, etc...all the good stuff. More interesting, you don't gain any experience through combat, only gold, but I got improved stats by solving a riddle. Besides the game is mysterious with riddles, obscure hints on the walls and the monsters are cool. The atmosphere is nice too.

    Those graphics tickle me in my bad touch place. Mmmmmm

    I have not read anything about it - but are these actual Apple and C64 games that someone is making, or just made to look like they are?

    In fact Lawless Legends, the wild west game, has not been released yet. They released Ancient Legends, a short medieval fantasy game. It's fun though.

    I completed the game. Combat is simplistic, mostly because you're alone (not a big deal though), but exploration(the world is open)/puzzles/riddles are good. It looks like in Lawless Legends you'll eventually control a party so it could be very good, and it will be bigger and the setting seems nice, I'm enthousiastic.

    Side note : There may be a bug with statues which are supposed to allow you to pass but don't let you pass, but anyway I managed to get around them so it's not a serious issue, if it's even really an issue and not just me who did something wrong.

    I'm going through the site but where the heck is the game download? Or do they really expect you to compile it yourself?

    The disk images can be downloaded from here: https://github.com/badvision/lawless-legends/tree/master/Example Content/Ancient Legends/Disk images

    And the instructions are here: https://github.com/badvision/lawless-legends/blob/master/Example Content/Ancient Legends/README.md
    That doesn't sound like you have to compile it yourself, but I haven't tried running it myself yet.

    Yes, I downloaded the emulator (AppleWin-NTSC-05.zip here) and the two disk files (I missed that they recommended the HDD version), then the emulator is easy to use.

    What a gorgeous game this Ancient Legends game is, I truly love those Apple II graphics. The gameplay itself is pretty simplistic unfortunately, but at least it promises some quality exploration.

    From the pics, the youtube vids and description i see bardstale, dragonwars (the first person tiles you walk through like cactus, ponds, horses), wasteland (outside definitely reminds me of that), and alternate reality the city (movement seems close to it when turning). Not sure if you turn 1/4 or 1/2 to fully face N,W,E, or S.

    I'll boot it up when summer/fall is over and im less inclined to work outside.
