Hot Dang. All the Ultimas.

Posted by Rampant Coyote on August 23, 2012

The whole series. On sale. With new goodies.

That is, if you exclude Akalabeth: World of Doom (which I don’t know was ever officially ported to the PC), and Escape from Mount Drash (which was an unofficial horrible VIC-20 game produced by Sierra in a time when they didn’t realize what ‘intellectual property rights’ really entailed).  And the two Worlds of Ultima spin-offs are also available, and already free, so there’s no excuse for not picking them up. They were built with the Ultima VI engine.

So if you’ve ever felt you missed out on having the complete collection (hey, I never played the Ultima IX, though that was somewhat willful, and I’ve been trying to convince myself for years that Ultima ended with Ultima VII part 2: Serpent Isle), I guess now’s a good chance to catch ’em all.

And – here’s the Spoony Experiment retrospective on each game in the series.

(Update: I previously stated that I didn’t know why the Ultima Underworld games weren’t part of the sale, but they are. My bad.)

    The Underworlds are part of the sale – they’re on the promo page, too.

    The 1998 Ultima Collection I have includes a PC port of Akalabeth.

    Thanks, David. You are right – I dunno why I didn’t see them. My world makes more sense now.

    Another great move by GOG…
