About The Game

Loosely based on (or "inspired by", if you will) the classic The Bard's Tale series that started out as a 1985 Apple II RPG, this new tale brings a fresh dose of comedy to the RPG world set with a 3D isometric engine similar titles such as Diablo and Fallout. Is a dragon terrorizing the locals? The Bard will take care of it ... for the right price. Local princess held captive? The Bard is your man ... as long as she's hot.
