Salutations! Welcome to the home page of my computer RPG Club.
In my very humble opinion, the computer leads the pack as the best retro machine of all time. As part of the RPGBacktrack podcast and writing work I do with RPGamer, I have started a computer role playing game of the month. I challenge myself to play these games from the way back when, right up through yesteryear, and then write about my experience. And, you can join me! We can talk about it on Twitter (#CRPGClub), share our experiences, and you can even win our a prize from my list of free GOG games, just for participating! So, let’s talk about the games!
“Month of” Rotation
Each month, I choose a game from my backlog. I rotate out between three time periods: before 2000, 2000-2009 and 2010-2016. This keeps me from ending up playing three old DOS games in a row 🙂 You will be able to find all of these games on GOG or Steam.
Here’s a list for the next six months.
- July – Pools of Radiance
- August – Tales of Maj’eyal
- September – Icewind Dales II
- October – Curse Of the Azure Bonds
- November – Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut
- December – Valkyira Chronicles
Each time you share your experiences on Twitter using the #CRPGClub tag, you are entered for our monthly drawing to be able to choose one of the games listed below! If you are the first to answer one of my trivia questions correctly, you are entered five times!
I add to this list as sales pop up, so come back and visit from time to time.
