New Adventure: Stronghold of Kahr-Dur

July 21, 2019

Announcing the latest adventure ported to Eamon Remastered: Stronghold of Kahr-Dur by Derek C. Jeter. One of the newest adventures, it was published originally on Eamon Deluxe and never saw an Apple II version.

This one has a good combo of both puzzles and combat. It's a well thought-out adventure from start to finish, with good descriptions and special effects. You'll need to make note of every locked door you encounter, because you'll often have to return to them much later once you have the means to open them. Give this one a try. I think you'll like it.

New Adventure: Attack of the Kretons

June 29, 2019

Continuing the trend of not-so-serious adventures, this month Eamon Remastered welcomes the Attack of the Kretons by Nathan Segerlind!

This is a silly adventure that nevertheless contains a real quest with a few interesting puzzles. And cheesedip. Lots of cheesedip.

The original version of Attack of the Kretons (for the Apple II) was one of the highest-rated adventures in terms of quality by the reviewers from the Eamon Adventurers' Guild. It includes well-written descriptions, detailed NPC interaction, and numerous enhancements like a TALK command which allows more meaningful communication with NPCs. I hope I have done a faithful job of converting this whimsical masterpiece to the web. Enjoy!

New Adventure: The Quest for the Holy Grail

May 5, 2019

And now for something completely different.

This month's addition to the Eamon Remastered catalog is none other than the Monty Python-inspired classic, The Quest for the Holy Grail. Fight the fearsome Black Knight, seek out a shrubbery, and beware death itself, with nasty, pointy teeth. Nee!

I'd like to thank programmer, author, and long-time Eamon fan Josh de Lioncourt for his hard work on bringing this adventure to Eamon Remastered.

You'll notice a few additional changes to the game with this release. Group monsters now behave a lot more intelligently. The group members can now flee independently of each other, and even end up in different places. In addition, I have made a handful of accessibility improvements to make Eamon Remastered easier to play with a screen reader.
