To celebrate the 15th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls, Bethesda have released The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall as a free download. To run this game on newer systems, you will need to use an emulation program like DOSBox (included in the zip).
Daggerfall featured one of the first true 3D worlds on a massive scale, with a game world the size of Great Britain. The game had twice as many features as Arena, a deeper role-playing system, and helped usher in an RPG renaissance in 1996.
From the Author of Last Scenario, comes a new rpg.
Exit Fate is a full-length RPG created with RPGMaker XP.
The game is based more on the Suikoden series of games. This means that there are a LOT of characters to recruit for your army (75 in total), and that there are strategic war battles throughout the game. For those who are familiar with the Suikoden games though, the author points out a few important differences:
* There is no time limit for any of the characters. It's impossible to permanently miss anyone.
* There is a reward for obtaining all characters, but it will be obvious what it's going to be, and you're not required to get it before any specific point in the game.
F1: change controls/video settings (see manual for explanation)
Alt+Enter: switch to full screen. I have no idea why there is no normal key combination for this.
In SE:SS, you are tasked with charting the long-abandoned Serpens Sector, a region of space reached through a wormhole near Earth. Each star system you visit brings you an encounter with something - ancient ruins, other humans and many dangers. The map and encounters are chosen at random for each game, which means that each game plays out differently.
The intention is to release the base game for free, and create expansion backs for sale. SE:SS is intended to be a game of discovery, and will contain many hidden truths to be discovered by the dedicated player.
Available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh. Java is required.

The MIDNIGHT ENGINE is intended to be one program that can play both Lords of Midnight and Doomdark's Revenge. But not only that it can allow others to create new and exciting adventures either within the midnight world or using the midnight style. The designer can keep the rules that were
implemented for the Lords of Midnight or Doomdark's Revenge Scenarios or they may use the default set, giving their new game a different feel. Alternatively they can easily change code or data to completely change the rules.
The Midnight ENGINE also incorporates FRONTENDS. This allows new visual styles to be implemented without changing any of the game. This can be just graphics or even a different style of ouput.
Note: You can play the Zx spectrum (for pc) version by using dosbox, the game is in lom110.zip
