I found this game today in New Orleans at a thrift store. I had never heard of it. Has anyone?

I've never heard of it JB but it sure received good ratings! Are you going to play it or is it sealed and new?

Here's a bit more info. And here's even more. It's an older game. Looks intriguing through.

I have it. grin I haven't tried to load it up yet but I'm looking forward to it. smile wave

I'm playing a game from 1994 right now--Death Gate. One of the best adventures ever!!! And it plays perfectly in DOSBox on Windows XP. DOSBox is one of the greatest gifts to computer gamers ever! thumbsup

But I digress. whistle

Back to Wrath of the Gods; I believe that it can still be ordered online here:

WRATH OF THE GODS HOMEPAGE

No idea if it's a bear to get running, but you can email the designer from there, and I'm sure he would be willing to answer questions about Windows XP compatibility. smile I'll give it a whirl one of these days and will also try my Windows ME computer. smile

I haven't tried to get Wrath of the Gods running yet, Butcher. I'll certainly try compatibility mode when I do. smile

I have Wrath of the Gods. It is one of my favorite older games really fun. I've played it several times on one of my older computers. Don't know if it works on xp. Another favorite game of mine is Golden gate. Really worth playing. Don't remember having any trouble playing either of these games. Diane

Hey John Boy~

I played this game several years ago, and it was a kick! But then I collect as many FMV games as I can, so call me crazy, lol. It was cheezy and that made it fun for me. I hope you get a chance to play it and make up your own mind, let us know what you think.

Agreed, Death Gate is one of the best games I've ever played. And I have Wrath of the Gods as well, but never played it. I wonder if the one they're selling now is the same as the one from 1994 or if it's a reissue...
