EG Retro: Legend Of Kyrandia + MAPS!

Remember when games had graphics, eh?

This weekend saw my Eurogamer retrospective of one of the lesser-remembered adventure games of the early Nineties, the Legend Of Kyrandia: Book One. It contained moments like,

“It contained a single cursor. I’m not really sure what to do with this information. Does it undermine everything? Is everything that’s being produced now a homage to Kyrandia?

Obviously not. And not only because Kyrandia also suffers from the same issues. To say the story owes something to the King’s Quest series is a bit like saying Vodafone owes something to the Inland Revenue. In this fairytale land an evil wizard – brilliantly named Malcolm – is removing all the magic and, er, killing a few trees.”

And rather delightfully, it had me making maps for the first time in years. Below!

Now I just want to play games that let you make maps. Look at the fun I had. Here’s the first area of the game. Click on them for engreatening.

I dun dis.

And here are those insane dungeons. If you can figure out the system my markings represent, then you’ve done better than I.

Everyone, go make maps!
