Overview

An RPG that was originally written in BASIC for the Apple II. The game was developed by Richard Garriot during the summer of 1979 while he was a teenager working at ComputerLand in Clear Lake City, Texas. Copies were originally distributed by Garriot in plastic bags, before the rights were bought by California Pacific Computer in 1980.

The original name was D&D28b, since it was based on Garriot's 28th game inspired by the Dungeons & Dragons ruleset. It is considered "Ultima 0" and was included in the Ultima Collection in 1998.
