A handful of magic.

Death Gate is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com.
Rich in text, detailed fantasy drawings and challenging puzzles, this cult classic first-person adventure will take you through a dark tale of exile and bitter revenge. Years after his race got unfairly banished from the five realms by the advanced Sartan, a young hero must journey through all of them and collect the seal pieces that will help his people restore their place in the world. The road is paved with trouble and unexpected obstacles but his allies and magic abilities could be the key to saving the day!
Amazing release, this is the best present for the new year. I too hope to see the other Legend games following up. I've been waiting for this for years.
When I was young thaaar was a tale o' a boy who lost a li'l finger in a rusty gate accident. It wasn't liek a death gate buuut it probs inconvenienced him a bit? his own personal heck gate. I mean... if it even happened rather thaaan some grouchy sourpuss spreadin' tales to keep kids away for trick-or-treat shiz.

Edz: replaced accidental swear.

This is a very nice surprise, a classic release on all levels, pricing included.

Legend Entertainment have a number of titles that'd be nice to see released again.

tremere110: Good to see this here. Not particularly interested in this game but I'm hopeful that Superhero League of Hoboken and Companions of Xanth will eventually make their way here.
I am definitely hopeful they will get Companions of Xanth as well!

The thing I remember most about Companions of Xanth was that I got it for free.

It was included on one of those demo-CDs (remember those?) that came with some British game-magazine. It was *supposed* to be just a demo, but they put the whole game on the disc by accident. So I got to play the whole game without paying a cent.

The gameplay was better than I expected it to be, although even in 1993 the Xanth setting was pretty much played out (that it's still going 25 years later seems a strong indication that some diabolic deal had been signed by the author). It's characters were awful (Jennie Elf and Com-pew-ter?). Still, while its puzzles were fairly simple and its linearity meant there wasn't much room for replayability, it was an okay romp while it lasted. It helped that it was so easy; had it been a harder game I probably wouldn't have finished it just because it didn't have much else to keep me interested. Still, like Death Gate it wasn't a terrible game and it had very nice graphics and full speech.

Though I expect that we'll see the Spellcasting and Superhero League before Xanth (or Gateway/Callahan/Shannara) though, simply because the former games have simpler licensing.

This is hilarious, what was the name of the magazine? I suppose they found out about it sooner or later, how did they react?

It was PC Review (issue 33, July 1994). I still have the CD-ROM (hey, free copy of Xanth, I'm not giving that up!).

I do't remember if the error was ever brought up in the magazine. I'm sure /somebody/ must have noticed at some point but what the fallout from this error was I have no idea. Likely it was Legend's fault more than the magaziine; the developer probably sent the wrong archive and PC Review just dropped it onto the CD-master. It definitely was supposed to be a demo as it says as much on the CD itself.

I imagine they just hushed the whole thing up, hoped the magazine's circulation was small enough and that most people wouldn't play the demo (or at least wouldn't play to the end).

Not me, though. I finished the game and the memory of it still brings a smile to my face.

Weirdly enough, I had the exact same experience, though I can't say for sure if that was the Magazine (father was travelling abroad quite a bit, he did bring back a number of PC magazines). So either it happened more than once, or two strangers from two different countries half way around the globe managed to have the same magazine issue from a third country.
Interesting either way.
Instant Buy!!!!!

I'm SO thrilled Legend Entertainment games are finally coming to GOG!! Long overdue!

Spellcasting 101 was my very first computer game and made an adventure game junkie out of me for life.

Please tell me that more Legend games are coming! I will positively throw my money at you when they arrive!!!!
Well then. Good reviews, highly praised in the release thread, an old classic and released with Linux support and DRM-free at last after too long in limbo? Yeah, definitely grabbed this. Good work, GOG! Keep 'em coming! This is the sort of thing we love you for!

Someone at the RPG Codex asked Piko this question. And the answer was: Yes!
