Apple Features Icewind Dale
10:11 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Apple has posted a new feature on MacPlay's recently released role-playing game, Icewind Dale. Icewind Dale is one of the largest computer dungeon adventures ever created for the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. Developed using the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules by the Black Isle team that developed Baldur's Gate and Fallout, Icewind Dale is said to feature improved graphics for advanced 3D effects.

Here's a snippet from the article:

Reality TV comes to the Renaissance Fair? No, it’s a typical session in front of your Mac with MacPlay’s latest role-playing game (RPG), Icewind Dale. Based on the official Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition rules and built to run in Mac OS X as smoothly as a magical sword through a goblin, this title offers a twist on the tried-and-true RPG formula.

You see, unlike previous AD&D-based games like Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Icewind Dale requires that you create not one, but six characters before you begin your grand adventure. And you need to make sure they get along, or you’ll be in for a long journey.

Be sure to check out the rest of the article at the Apple web site.
