Indie Retro News has a big treat for you today as three amazing games have re-appeared for free that are renowned as some of the greatest Adventure games of the 90's, Companions of Xanth, Shannara and Death Gate. All three of these games were developed and published by Legend Entertainment and aimed to give a different approach to the way Adventure titles were done. Instead of the usual point and click and moving a character about, each scene was as if it was in a first person view, and it's how you interacted with that scene, which helped to determine if a puzzle was to be solved or in one situation certain death. The graphics were in SVGA and excelled in detail, it was like a story book come to life. Plus with the very good in depth story relating to the original books and characters to talk to, these are three of the greatest Adventure games that I've ever played. I'd highly recommend to everyone to download and play these Adventure titles right now. Also a big thanks to the original source, Synchro for creating these easily launch able titles!
