    Tags: 6502 Workshop; Nox Archaist

    Nox Archaist is one of several oldschool Ultima-inspired RPGs that have been development over the past few years. It's a more distinctly retro-flavored project than some of the others, having been programmed for original Apple II hardware, though it does work on Windows and includes some modern innovations. The creators are a group of vintage hardware enthusiasts called 6502 Workshop, led by one Mark Lemmert. The game was originally announced in 2016 (though its history goes back considerably further) and unsuccessfully crowdfunded in 2017. A second Kickstarter campaign in 2019 was more successful and this weekend the game was finally released. Here's its release trailer, which includes the obligatory Richard Garriott Twitter endorsement:


    As befits such a consciously oldschool title, Nox Archaist is only available from the developer's official website, where the digital edition can be purchased for $25 (currently with a 20% discount). This is a game with a very particular audience, so I suspect the physical edition might be more popular here.

    Garriott's endorsement is almost enough to put me off this.

    I doubt he's actually played it.
