Back to the dungeons with Cary, Rabby and Gina and they've just encountered the first stumbling block. Drawing this sequence brought back so many memories of long nights playing the original, steam driven but nevertheless utterly captivating granddaddy of all R.P.G.'s (Role Playing Games O Unbeliever) that I was amazed at how so much of what unfolds is so like the original game. David still hasn't played Dungeon Master (I'm working on him), so it's a bit uncanny at how deftly he has managed to evoke the atmosphere of the original. The riddle sequence with the gaolers is just typical of how frustrating and compelling the original game is.
The whole Dungeon Master experience is available for free at Christophe Fontanel's amazing Dungeon Master Encyclopedia.
Give it a shot - you will find yourself quite quickly addicted.
