    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    The game dnd was developed by Gary Whisenhunt and Ray Wood and is loosely based on TSR's Dungeons and Dragons pen-and-paper RPG. It was developed from 1974-1975 and released to the academic community in the year 1975. Dirk Pellet and Flint Pellet were responsible for substantial enhancements and iterations from 1976-1985. While third in chronological order of known computer RPGs dnd is the first specifically created as a game rather than a teaching tool or exercise.

    dnd appropriated many elements from Dungeons and Dragons that have become staple in Games as a whole. Player statistics, thoughtful UI balance, items, bosses, leveling up, thoughtful narrative design and dungeon exploration are among the pioneered elements made standard in modern gaming.
