Beta Release Eye of the Beholder - Atari Lynx

Recommended Posts

If they become available for Order I'm very interested in one. So I'll try to monitor when I can start sending a PM, rather than flood you in PMs. ;)

I'm up for the version too, when they become available. What's the protocol? Is like Saints sd cart, as in you declare interest and your name gets added to a list?

I hope not as easy for those being patient to end up way down the list (PS, but if it is like this, then add me etcetc).

While the EOTB is a very nice part of history of the Lynx it is a bit tedious to play. The EOTB is a dungeon crawler. And it is not entirely logical either. Maps help a lot (or a pen and paper to make notes while playing).

 

I am lucky to be a play tester for Wyvern Tales and it is closer to a modern RPG. It could be released any day now as the game is complete imho. So while you are waiting for the EOTB run you could sharpen your skills by hunting down some dragons in Wyvern Tales. The EOTB is larger and has more control of inventory and characters. But the Wyvern Tales is much easier to play with a simple user interface, very nice old-school graphics, sweet music and a logical storyline. Oh, it also has a game save just like the EOTB.

Not trying to wail on EOTB but I'm not really a dungeon crawler fan. I think the 16-bit generation was the sweet spot for RPGs IMO but I prefer the lighter fair. Anyway sounds like an impressive game and I hope a second run gets produced so more people can enjoy this title. Great news on that front.

 

It's also unfortunate that the SaintT flashcart doesn't support SRAM saving, but it is what it is. I wish there were a demo released for it...

 

Good luck to everyone involved! :grin:

Apologies for the necro bump but I've always been a big fan of first-person dungeon crawlers (they're really the only type of RPGs I've ever been able to get into) and I was curious is there was still any plan to ever release a finished version of Eye of the Beholder on cartridges?

There was, not sure if Eric already released his last few carts. I might make some more PCBs at some point, it has been on my list of things to do for ages.
