Betrayal at Krondor
DOS - 1993
Description of Betrayal at Krondor
One of the best RPGs ever made, Betrayal at Krondor is a classic example of games that get rave reviews yet do poorly in stores (at least until it was re-released on CD-ROM).
Flat "paper-doll" digitized graphics is just about the only criticism you can level at this classic, which features an excellent plot written by best-selling fantasy author Raymond Feist (who also had considerable input in the design process), memorable characters, cool spellcasting interface, and an abundance of optional sub-quests and riddle chests. Sierra made the game freeware in 1997 to promote their own sequel Betrayal at Antara (which, without Feist' s input, is a pale shadow of its predecessor). Suffice to say that noone can claim to be an old-time RPGer if they have never set foot in Krondor :)
Note: Although the CD version is for sale for only $5 at E CD-ROM shop, it is the cut-down, "Sierra Classic" version that includes neither the interview with Raymond Feist nor the CD music. It also includes no manual :/ You are therefore advised to either go buy it somewhere else, or download our near-complete CD rip below.

I was never a big fan of this series, they were OK, just over-rated and over-hyped. That said, worth playing if your a fan of story driven CRPGs.

Oh, wow. I'm excited just looking at the screencaps! I grew up on Betrayal In Antara and have long been curious to play its forerunner. Here's hoping the files run okay. Thank you for uploading this!
