Eight Classic Dungeons & Dragons Games Have Been Re-Released
For the first time in decades, eight classic PC titles from Dungeons & Dragons have been re-released, including in special bundles.
With a brand new movie and a new video game on the horizon, SNEG has decided to re-release eight classic Dungeons & Dragons titles for PC. Some of these games have been off the shelf for decades, spanning back to the early '90s when creating titles like these were massive projects that involved tons of storytelling and planning ahead of time for whatever choices the players may have made. Some of the highlights in the mix include games from the Dragonlance series, Spelljammer: Pirates of Realmspace, and Fantasy Empires. The company is also releasing all eight of the games together in a special bundle called the Silver Box Classics, which will be sold soon on GOG and Steam. We have more info on all eight games below.

Heroes of the Lance (1988)
Based on the later parts of the Dragonlance book, Dragons of Autumn Twilight, the heroes descend into a ruined city in search of the disks of Mishakal.

The party consists of the eight Heroes of the Lance, which the player can switch between at any time.
Dragons of Flame (1989)
Set in between the AD&D Dragonlance action games Heroes of the Lance and Shadow Sorcerer, Dragons of Flame follows the Heroes of the Lance formula with a side-scrolling, action-oriented view.
