The "old school" is back in session with a few new
lessons with Eschalon: Book 1, a great new indie computer RPG
from Basilisk Games.
Waking up in a desolate ghost-town in a land in
the midst of war, you find yourself lacking any memories of your own
identity or knowledge of the current turmoil. Relying upon notes
from an unknown benefactor, you discover that your amnesia and
circumstances may not only be no accident, but that you yourself may
have been responsible. But for what purpose? Your quest for answers
will take you across the land, down into the deepest dungeons, and
against fierce foes in this classic-style fantasy RPG.
Eschalon: Book 1 features turn-based
combat, beautiful isometric tile-based graphics, a deep and
involving non-linear storyline, tons of sub-quests, an elaborate
skill system, hundreds of items, dozens of monsters, and many, many
hours of good, solid fun. Unapologetically turn-based and tactical
in its combat system, the designer invokes legendary series such as
Wizardry, Ultima, and Might & Magic as
But this is no mere nostalgic excursion -
Eschalon: Book 1 combines the "old-school" sensibilities of the
great computer RPGs of the 1990s with the demands of modern
audiences. This is a sharp, polished game with attention to detail
that shows just what an indie RPG can do today.
