The Wizardry video game franchise is a series of role-playing video games that began in 1981. The games were created by Andrew Greenberg and Robert Woodhead and published by Sir-Tech.
The first game, “Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord,” was a groundbreaking RPG that was highly influential in the development of the genre. It was notable for its use of first-person perspective, turn-based combat, and its large, sprawling dungeon. The game was a commercial success and was followed by several sequels and spin-offs.
The early games in the series were known for their difficulty, with players often needing to create multiple characters and employ careful tactics to survive. Later games in the series introduced new features such as a storyline, more detailed character customization, and updated graphics.
The series has had a lasting impact on the RPG genre, with many modern games taking inspiration from its mechanics and design elements. In addition to the original games, there have been numerous remakes, ports, and spin-offs released over the years.
