    The best spin-off of "Wizardry", beloved for 15 years in Japan, is coming to Steam

Old "Wizardry" which follows the old hack and slash TRPG style, the objective is to create a character/party in the training center on the edge of town, and conquer the labyrinth in first person dungeon crawl. Combat is a simple turn-based system, now synonymous with JRPGs, and storytelling is narrative heavy, the Japanese still believe that is one and only master piece. Wizardry: The Five Ordeal made 2006 that aspires to go back to the old school. Created by the staff of the "Wizardry Gaiden" series, a spin-off of the Wizardry series known in Japan.
