Collecting, Retro gaming

A bit from my personal collection – The Black Cauldron

Here we have my sealed copies of The Black Cauldron.
The copy on the right (in the gallery below) was designer Al Lowe’s personal copy (also signed by him).

The movie was released in 1985 by Walt Disney Pictures and the year after the game, with the same name and designed by Al Lowe and Roberta Williams, was published by Sierra On-Line.
Along with The Dark Crystal it remains one of only a few adventure games by Sierra to be based on films.

To make the game more accessable for kids and a-like the classic text parser was removed and instead used the function keys to perform various actions.
