Legend of Kyrandia Westwood Studios / Avalon Interactive 1992

This first part of a trilogy of classic adventure games was made by Westwood which later became more famous for its Command & Conquer strategy games. Designed with visual appeal as well as storyline, this classic spawned two sequels and gained quite a following. In this game you play the role of Brandon, grandson of Kallak - a wizard of the realm of Kyrandia. Malcolm, a psychotic jester imprisoned in the past by Kallak, has broken free and wishes to take over the land as well as lay down his revenge on Kallak whomo he then turns into stone leaving him with only his eyes, so that he can see and cry for Kyrandia's ruin. This is where Brandon steps in; returning home shortly afterwards only to find that his grandfather has been turned into stone, Brandon is being told by a messenger from the Realm of the Land that he has been chosen to embark on a journey that will rid this realm of Malcolm and his evil. This is a 3rd person, point and click game with a friendly interface and inventory which includes an Amulet to hold the spells you acquire, and the CD version has music and voice (both Brandon's complaints and Malcolm's wisecracks are delightful). The charming story is set in a beautifully rendered world of enchanted forests and pools and caverns, and the mood is consistently upbeat. All the graphics are lustrously illustrated in VGA resolution. Over 100 rendered scenes are overlaid with animations.
