Fallout

Hi there!

Interplaying Fallout (1997):

It's been quite a while since the last Interplaying article. First I sunk a lot of time into getting Waterworld to work on my computer and when I finally got it working on my wifes new ThinkPad, it felt rather boring. Similar story with MDK: I...


Blood & Magic

Hi there!

Interplaying Blood & Magic (1996):

Posted Image

Judging by the sound of most reviews I read regarding Blood & Magic, it is supposed to be an average game at best. Just as with Shattered Steel though, I simply tried the original demo that was released 15 years ago in order to...


Shattered Steel

Hi there!

Interplaying Shattered Steel (1996):

When considering wether I should feature a game in "Interplaying", it is often enough for me to just read a review. This'll usually give me a very good idea what it's all about and if I might like it. For Shattered...

Hi there!

Interplaying Stonekeep (1995):

Remember me complaining about the eternal delay of Dungeon Master II in the last Interplay article? Well, the development of their own Stonekeep took only half as long, a mere five years ;)

This article took a lot more time for preparation as...

Hi there!

Interplaying Dungeon Master II: The Legend of Skullkeep (1994):

Posted Image

It sounds like a joke: Almost a full decade after Dungeon Master revolutionized computer RPGs forever, its developer "Faster Than Light" :ponder: almost released its sequel. Well, they did...

Hi there!

Interplaying Warcraft - Orcs & Humans (1994):

Posted Image

Okay, featuring this one within Interplaying is debatable, but Interplay did publish this one in Germany ;)

After a series of SNES games (Lost Vikings, Rock'n'Roll Racing, ...), Blizzards first totally PC...

Hi there!

Interplaying Star Trek 25th Anniversary (1992):

Posted Image

While the first three entries in this series were all about Interplays great early RPGs, we see them utilizing their Star Trek license in totally different genres here. ST25A is actually a hybrid between a Space...

Hi there!

Interplaying Dragon Wars (1990):

Posted Image

When everyone was waiting for Bard's Tale IV, Interplay gave us Dragon Wars instead. I'm not complaining though, since it seems that Dragon Wars breathed some fresh ideas into the stale Bard's Tale formula. Most notably did it...

Hi there!

Interplaying Neuromancer (1988):

Posted Image

I remember that back in the day Neuromancer was filed under RPG, but after just spending a first night playing it, I must say it felt much more like an adventure to me. There are a few role playing elements in it, like the upgradeable...


Wasteland

Hi there!

Interplaying Wasteland (1988):

Posted Image

Wasteland is a very complex RPG from Interplay, just like their Bard's Tale series. They even share the combat system, but as you can see above, it plays on Ultima style maps instead of 3D dungeons.

The major difference is the setting...
