  • The Lost Chronicles of Zerzura for PC is released.
  • Quest for Infamy for PC is released. Why Be Famous When You Can Be Infamous?Return to the glory days of role-playing and adventure with this humor-filled fantasy epic, styled in the vein of classic PC RPGs, where you play the charming villain. Blending turn-based combat and spellcasting with puzzle solving and adventure, players can choose from three character classes -- brigand (strength), rogue (stealth), or sorcerer (magic), each with unique storylines and adventures -- in one of the largest retro role-playing experiences ever. A spiritual heir to yesteryear's heroic quests, adventurers are invited to explore a world of hand-drawn wonder, as they wind their way through trap-infested dungeons, battle slavering beasts with swords or custom-made spells, and steal entire town's worth of treasure from unsuspecting townsfolk. Being bad has never felt so good!
