This game was amazing. 1993. A real story, cool characters and locations, amazing music!
I loved the old game Phantasie from 1985, which was also one of the earliest games we had on the PC. It was a cool open world RPG game. BUT the story was quite hackneyed, and the interface and graphics were rudimentary. Betrayal at Krondor was like everything Phantasie was and more, with a richer story and great music and graphics (for the time!).
I personally love hand painted graphics in a game, and Krondor featured lovely images of each location you visited and great looking inventory items.
I would play all night, there was no end to it. I would huddle before the computer with a sleeping bag draped over my whole body, like some ancient form of worship, my palm red from wiggling the mouse around for hours on end.
I love this tradition of games from Phantasie, to Oblivion and Skyrim. They just keep getting more immersive and seamless. Viva! Long live adventure games!
