Westwood Studios might be better known as the creator of the million-selling Command & Conquer series but the developer made its name producing first-person dungeon-crawlers under the Dungeons & Dragons licence.
Lands of Lore was an evolution of that concept, but the trilogy of titles struggled to gain widespread recognition under the shadow of its more popular stable mate - the aforementioned C&C.
Thanks to Rick Gush and Joseph Hewitt, without whom this piece would not have been possible. I also want to thank both guys for their patience, because this feature took a long time to get printed.
I'd also like to dedicate the final piece to memory of Rick Parks, who I know was a big influence on the final product and was held in very high regard by both Gush and Hewitt.
As always, you can find the Retro Gamer website in this direction.
