[S]Ultima Underworld Lost Walkthrough

31st January 2017 by Dino

A fellow Ultima fan has broken the silence that dominated the Dino's Ultima Page Google Group since 2014, to ask about a lost walkthrough of Ultima Underworld. This person had copied the first page and a map (both provided in the thread) into MS Word, and has not been able to locate the walkthrough anywhere. If anyone knows anything about this walkthrough, please get in touch!

[W][R]U1Revenge demo released

23rd January 2017 by Dino

A few weeks ago, I rebooted my old engine port of Ultima 1, which I call Ultima 1 Revenge. It's got a home on BitBucket where you can get info, the source code, and some downloads.

Today, I have released the first demo since the reboot. You can grab it from the downloads page. Just configure the path to your original Ultima 1 folder (instructions are on the homepage) and you're good to go. You can roam around Sosaria, use Inform and Search ('I' key) to identify locations, toggle full screen (F10), and cycle through different means of transport (square bracket keys).

This project has always been a casual one and will inevitably experience periods of rapid or slow progress. In fact, very soon, this project will go on hiatus for a few weeks - you can blame that on the Ultima Dragons 25th Anniversary Bash. :)

[W]CRPG Book Screenshot Gallery

23rd December 2016 by Dino

The CRPG Book Project has just released a massive, several-thousand-strong screenshot gallery for the games in the book. I spotted a bunch of my screenshots of Menzoberranzan, Ravenloft: Strahd's Possession, and Ravenloft: Stone Prophet, which I had provided with my Ravenloft: Stone Prophet review for the book. A new book preview is also due soon, hopefully (but not guaranteed) after Christmas.
