That old game I just can't remember the name of!

  1. Mar 25, 2013 #1
    Hello there,

    I believe there must be some avid gamers around these parts, so perhaps someone can help me remember this jewel I've been searching for.

    The game is an RPG with top-down 3D view like Baldurs Gate.

    I would believe it is from the 1995 - early 2000s era (my guess).

    In the game you play this guy who is traveling to his uncle (perhaps?) and finds him dead (as I remember). I can't remember the plot of the game, but I do remember that you become a mage. And you get some sort of "Mage Nexus" or "Base" that you can visit. One thing I DO remember however is, that there is a battle at some point (maybe near the end?), where there is actually a lot of NPC's fighting along side you. Very epic!

    In my mind the game was called something with "Hex" but after countless futile hours I have given up on that. However I am still convinced there was something with an X.

    Is this tickling anyone's mind? :)

    My kids used to play Hexen, a first person RPG. That what you are looking for?

    Nah, it was a top-down view. But thanks anyway! :)

    Try using this video game database to find it to find the game: http://www.mobygames.com/

    If you know the platform and year there shouldn't be too many to sort through

    I do not have any idea about the plot of these games anymore, but the only rpgs/action-rpgs from that time I remember having an 'x' in the title are Nox and Hexplore.

    Actually I think I have found it. To my astonishment, the game is a full 3D game and there's no x in the name :D

    It's Soulbringer.

    My memory failed me! :)

    Well now I have to play Baldur's gate again. It's been so long.

    Guess what, I have Settlers 2 installed... and they run in DOSBox under W7 64b.
