The real reason you got that machine (or emulator), right? Classic and new Amiga games talked about here.

Times of Lore

Times of Lore is a pretty legendary game on the C64. It came out in 1988 and is a pretty breathtaking technical achievement. In many ways it reminds me a lot of a bridge between the 8-bit and 16-bit versions of Zelda.

It was designed by Chris Roberts, who later went on to create the Wing Commander games. Pretty fantastic pedigree right there.

I never played it on the 64, but read about it plenty of times. Then, in early October my good buddy Mattsoft handed me a copy he'd picked up as a belated birthday present. The thing is MINT.

Honestly I don't think it's ever even been played. This is the kind of game that has to be played off a booted floppy, and saves go to a separate player disk.

It also comes with a paper full-color map, which is pretty cool. And you don't find solid white disks that often from back it the day.

This looks like one of those games I might go wandering around in for a month. But I'm eager to check it out soon.

One of my most favorite games of all time on the C64 when I was a kid. Never played it on the amiga. My brother and I played the hell out of it back in the 80s.
