This page has been static for several years, but now there is something new to add to it: my entry to Richard Garriott’s Dungeons and Dragons #1 competition is here: DnD1-js
As a quick background, DnD #1 is a text-based Dungeons and Dragons style role playing game that Richard Garriott wrote in 1977 on a PDP-11, using BASIC. As part of the Shroud of the Avatar launch, there has been a competition to port it to web browsers and/or Unity (an in-game scripting environment).
Over a period of a few years I have been trying to buy all of the Ultima series of games, complete with manuals, maps and of course trinkets. The final one that I bought was Ultima I in 2012, but is not in the picture below. Obviously I need to take a newer picture! My collection is complete apart from the little bag of coins that came as a trinket in the Ultima I re-release.
This collection was also a precursor to re-playing games that I had not played in the past, or had started but not completed. As of April 2014 I have now completed all of the main series of Ultima games (I to IX) and both of the Ultima Underworld games (I and II). Next up are the “Worlds of Ultima” titles, i.e. Savage Empire and Martian Dreams. I have just started Savage Empire, but then got distracted by the competition above and other things. I will pick it up again soon!
Copied from my udic.org profile:
Ultimas played: Ultima, Revenge of the Enchantress, Exodus, Quest of the Avatar, Warriors of Destiny, The False Prophet, The Black Gate, Serpent Isle, Pagan, Ascension, The Stygian Abyss, Labyrinth of Worlds, Savage Empire
Ultimas won: Ultima, Revenge of the Enchantress, Exodus, Quest of the Avatar, Warriors of Destiny, The False Prophet, The Black Gate, Serpent Isle, Pagan, Ascension, The Stygian Abyss, Labyrinth of WorldsMartian Dreams is currently missing from both lists, but it will be on them soon. Something that is unlikely to be on either list is "A Nintendo Ultima"...
