Realmz [Freeware]

Post by MrFlibble » Sat Apr 14, 2012 6:32 pm

This was originally posted at Abandonia Forums. Personally I've never heard of this game before, but it must have been quite popular. Looks rather fine too :) It was released as freeware by the developer in 2008.

Well this is most peculiar case.

Realmz is indie Mac/Windows RPG from 1994, with official scenarios/expansions being released up to 2002.

It was developed by a guy called Tim Phillips and published through his company Fantasoft.
(He also published some games for other Mac Indie Developers, including the original Exile Trilogy by Jeff Vogel.)

In November 2008, Tim Phillips released the full version of Realmz (Mac & Windows) as a free download. Plus the registration numbers for the commercial scenarios/expansions made available to everyone on the Realmz Yahoo Group.

However, Fantasoft's website has since expired.

Archive of the Site
The official website is down but has a functional mirror, which can be found here. The links at the downloads page there are broken though because they still point to the old website, but the files are present on the site. The correct links are as follows:

Realmz v7.1.2 Demo for Windows
Realmz v7.1.2 Demo for MacOS
Windows version registration codes
MacOS version registration codes
Realmz Version 7.x.x to 7.1.2 Update for Windows
Realmz Version 7.x.x to 7.1.2 Update for MacOS
Realmz Version 7.1.2 to 8.0.7 Update for MacOS

Wikipedia has a link to an interview with Tim Philips, it's a pretty interesting read :)
