Nox Archaist is a new role playing game in development by 6502 Workshop exclusively for the Apple II platform and emulators, with floppy and hard disk support.

We are excited to announce the first in a series of mini stories using the Nox Archaist engine to demo the newest features in the game. The Nox Archaist story line is still under development. Any names or characters used in these mini stories are not intended to depict real or imagined NPCs, events, or bovines in the actual game. Any similarities are coincidental.

——Nox Archaist S1E1: Shattered Sword——

In this episode our hero travels to town and faces an epic struggle to get his sword repaired after breaking it over an ogre's head.

New game play elements to look for in this video include:

*Conversation with NPCs
*NPCs moving between locations on the map based on their daily schedule
*New interactive tiles

——About Nox Archaist——

Nox Archaist, by 6502 Workshop, is a 2D tile based fantasy RPG with a classic Apple II look and feel. Our mission is to develop a modern evolution of the Apple II RPG genre, while exploring how gameplay might have advanced in tile-based RPGs if large scale development had continued on the Apple II platform after the 1980s.

Thanks for the feedback! Nox Archaist will be available as a free download when released, for real Apple II hardware and emulators. We will also likely have a collector's edition available for purchase which includes the game on physical floppy disks, a printed manual and other goodies.

Thanks for the feedback. It is really helpful to hear from people who might be interested in a collectors edition. If there is enough interest we are going to try to include a cloth map.

I would probably pay for this game also if only I understood these kinds of games which I never did. Sad

It's my fault. Sad
