Night Dive Studios has announced the Steam release of three classic RPG titles: Wizard VI: Bane of the Cosmic Forge, Wizardry VII: Crusaders of the Dark Savant, and Wizardry 8. While Wizardry 8 is only available to Windows users Wizardry VI and VII are also available for Mac and Linux PCs. In Bane of the Cosmic Forge players form a band of six heroes who must enter an ancient castle in search of a magical pen capable of changing the flow of time. In Crusaders of the Dark Savant player quest for the secret of the universe itself.

One of the greatest fantasy role-playing series in gaming history comes to Steam today with the release of three games from the Wizardry franchise. The final three epic PC adventures from a series that spanned two decades that entertained millions of gamers are here, thanks to the work of Night Dive Studio – a company dedicated to reviving and restoring access to classic games from the past.

The re-release of Wizardry VI, Wizardry VII and Wizardry 8 follows on the heels of Night Dive’s spring release of System Shock 2, the first classic RPG that they chose to make available to modern audiences. Now you can play some of the most celebrated fantasy role-playing games ever released, all built on the old ideas of party composition, fiendish puzzles and deadly random encounters.

Wizardry VI: Bane of the Cosmic Forge ($4.99):

Take with you six companions - choose wisely, for having chosen, your fate is in their hands. Enter the ancient castle to retrieve the Cosmic Forge, a magical pen whose writings caused the river of time itself to change course. You will find treasure, armor, and magic items to advance your quest; meet wizened and cryptic dwellers who hold secrets that must be unearthed; and solve the riddles and puzzles that abound.

Wizardry VII: Crusaders of the Dark Savant ($4.99):

You'll discover both friends and foes as you search for the once forgotten secret of a - the secret of the very universe itself. And you won't be alone in your search. Others as enterprising as you have also entered this dimension. Only your actions - both past and present - will determine just how well you fare. From the depths of a dungeon to the blue and limitless skies, you'll see it all.

Company Bio:

They should be available to play at any time, run out of the box without the hassle of installing outdated drivers, or using obsolete hardware. Movies are restored, Books are digitized, and Art is preserved to be appreciated for all time. Why should Games be any different?
