Ambermoon - Open source remake of a fantastic CRPG gets the best version so far! (Amiga/Linux/Mac/Pi4/Windows)

As we said before in November of last year....Originally released in 1993 for the Amiga by Thalion Software, Ambermoon was the second part of an unfinished trilogy and sequel to Amberstar that was only released in Germany. In was an incredible RPG for its time, and featured 3D graphics that were considered revolutionary for the Amiga, but sadly for the company it couldn't save them from collapse.

Although we did get to play the English version as the last beta release by a1exh which was previously available through the Thalion Webshrine and as an easily playable HD package for your Amiga. Today's news is something special indeed for fans of this great Dungeon Crawling/CRPG. As thanks to Alexh letting us know once more through the EAB forums. He has said that if you head on over to the github website linked below, you can try out the latest and best version of an open-source remake of Ambermoon so far; an open source version of that classic game which aims to bring this awesome Amiga RPG to many other platforms including Linux, Mac, Pi4 and Windows.

Do note however even though the game is still in a development stage by Pyrdacor, and many people such as Metallic, Hexaae, Maynef who have been diagnosing and fixing bugs in the Amiga version. What Alexh has said is "The latest test release of is out and OMG it is pretty close to the original while improving the 3D areas considerably. The amount of work that went into the native Sonic-Arranger music player is mind boggling. Not to mention 10's of new bug fixes in the original datasets (English and German)". So there you have it, certainly sounds like a great release for Friday and well worth downloading.

Update : Alexh "The patched datafiles that uses are backwards compatible with the Amiga versions (German & English). So if you want to play Ambermoon on your Amiga then you will be able to benefit from the endless hours of work that went into fixing these files for"
