The 3D Adventure/RPG that's pure Evil
Ancient Evil is a 3D generated RPG consisting of a fully
interactive environment in which "books can be read, and beds slept in".
Real-time lighting and real-time shadows makes this game
even more of a treat to play. Play several types of characters, cast spells,
and fight monsters, as you enter the mysterious Crypt of the Ancients.
For centuries, would-be heroes
have been piting there skills against the Crypt of the Ancients. Controlled
by the seemingly ageless arch-mage Alaric, it is believed to have been built
over five thousands years ago as a resting place for 'The Ancients' - Demigods
who created the world. Now, the Crypt is a way to earn money, as Alaric offers
a prize of 50000 gold coins for anybody who enters the Crypt and lives to
tell the tale. In the history of the challenge, just two people have ever
emerged from its mysterious confines - Alaric himself, and Jetraal the Heroic.
But Jetraal was last seen 300 years ago, before he mysteriously died. Until
now. Jetraal's ghost has returned, warning people of impending doom unless
Alaric is stopped.
Presented through a 3D isometric
view, Ancient Evil uses high resolution 65,000 colour graphics. Real-time
lighting and real-time shadows provide the most detailed looking adventure/RPG
ever seen on a PC. All 30+ monsters are fully textured 3D models, providing
life-like animation. Real-time particle and lightning systems are used for
special effects such as fire, smoke, blood and magic. Explore a fully interative
environment where books can be read and beds can be slept in. Support for
directional stereo sound and a CD audio soundtrack enhance the atmosphere.
Start with a base character who can specialise in either spellcasting or
hand-to-hand combat. Enhance your characters attributes as you fight fearsome
monsters and cast spectacular magic spells.
