(re: Has there ever been a CD Talkie of Robin Hood?) Speaking of the Conquests series – I would appreciate hearing more background info about it. Though I didn’t think much of “Conquests of Camelot” (bad puzzles and sloppy plot, IMO), “Longbow” was a huge improvement – not only did it have beautiful graphics and music (ranking among Mark Seibert’s best, in my book) but the puzzles were also an elegant mix of genres – adventure, action and even a little strategy. And I liked the way the character of Robin Hood developed according to the player’s actions. Yes, the game was a little too easy, but I was always hoping for a sequel in the series, dealing with another folklore-figure.
BTW the series’ designer, Christy Marx, keeps a website at:
She’s a very prolific TV writer, and interestingly, an episode she wrote for “Babylon 5” deals with a man searching for the Holy Grail!
