    Albion is a 1995 RPG by Blue Byte with hybrid 2D map and 3D dungeons. It is very text heavy with an amazing story, great atmosphere and quite difficult combats.

    For me Albion is definitely the best and most beautiful DOS game I have played.

    This art work is very beautiful, and quite reminiscent of the time. It seems to have an interesting mix of sci-fi and fantasy too—here’s the story intro:

    “In the year 2227, the gigantic, interstellar factory ship “Toronto” reaches a distant solar system. The ship’s owners, the enormous DDT company, believe that there are rich deposits of raw materials on this third planet of the system; but the data which describes the planet as a desert, turns out to be forged. Albion is in fact a world full of life, secrets, surprises and magic. When Tom Driscoll, the pilot of the reconnaissance team discovers this, he swears to save Albion from “Toronto’s” tentacles.”

    Count me in! 😀

    As I remember the story was the classic “big evil corp against noble natives”, but the world and characters were well crafted and the 2D/3D combination was very exceptional.

    It was a great RPG. “great” as in good, and “great” as in quite long. This is a game you dive into.

    And yes, the graphics are lovely, the 2D art is especially beautiful to this day.
