Spelljammer, Fantasy Empires, And More Classic D&D RPGs Return To PC This Month

Retro PC gaming enthusiast studio SNEG has announced that several more classic Dungeons & Dragons PC RPGs will be re-released this month. Iconic titles like Spelljammer: Pirates of Realmspace, fantasy empires, and DeathKeep are getting the re-release treatment, so you’ll be able to relive a vital piece of gaming history soon.

In a press release, SNEG describes this lineup as “eight long-dormant Dungeons & Dragons games”, including some of the first video games to be based on the legendary tabletop gaming property. SNEG director Oleg Klapovskiy says it was “always [his] dream” to bring back old-school D&D classics, a dream that he began realizing last year with the re-release of several classic Gold Box PC RPGs.
