I believe it would be easy enough, though time consuming, for someone to program with the Neverwinter Nights engine. Anyone up for it? :)

I, too loved this game. had forgotten how complex it was. I? would also like to see a remake, solving a few problems besides poor graphics. the inventory menu was kinda hard and unnecessarily unwieldy. why you couldn't just grab something without having to confirm every time, i don't know, and getting something out of a chest or transfering to a chest could be hard especially from one chest to another. Game play was easy, but likewise odd. like when you go into battle, why was "fight" not the first option? Casting spells was fairly involved and so was using items and fruit. My biggest problem is that when you sold an item that turns out you needed later, their was no way to get it back. The person you sell it to does not stock it, no does it turn up later elsewhere, like at Kel's if you accidentally sell a gem or item you need.
Aside from the clunkyness of the game, it was the only one I remember finishing completely and enjoyed every minute of it.

I loved this game as a kid, I was someone could develop an Android version surely smartphones can run a game such as this in original design. But like some dude said above - it would be mad to see it in today's graphics. I love this game never finished it was so hard when I was a kid. Found somewhere online where you can play it on IE but I couldn't save it :( hours down the drain. Here is somewhere to play old consoles online - I've been revisiting Atari Lynx Scrap Yard Dog - never got to finished that as a kid and its still frigging hard now.

Wow, nearly 20 years since I played this one. I wish someone would redo this game pretty much untouched except to update to modern graphics. Such an awesome game! Remember as a kid when this first came out I was so absorbed I stayed up all weekend without barely a bathroom break from the game. Still one of the best games to date... and Baldur's Gate games, among a couple others, but that came a bit later :-)
Have to admit, the graphics may be a bit sad now, but the combat, game mechanics, and entertaining NPCs and their stories remain undiminished.

One of my all time favorites. Spent many hours on this game as a kid. The huge open world astounded me. Wish there were not games like this and Wake of the Ravager.

One of the best RPGs I've ever played. It is like a DOS version of Skyrim or Oblivion in the sense that there is a story you can progress at your leisure, or you can just run around and explore a bunch of side quests. Unique world is a bonus.

I see the comments from fudge u and from boo and I'm like "you kids and your newfangled WINE compatabilities! In my day we ran things in DOS and we liked it!"
Heck, I still like this game.

What computer specs does it need? 1993? Will it run on Win 7 or 8?

I am wandering through the halls of Abandonware and I am grinning. All of these games bring back memories.
I was playing this game when it was NEW!
And I will continue to play it now.

One of my favorite things about this game is how open ended it is. You can play any way you would like, and the emphasis is on exploring as opposed to a single linear quest.
