So are you going full fledged Wizardry clone? VERY interested to see what you come up with if that's the case meow.
Indeed I am. Trying to imitate the classic style (before Wiz 6~8), while adding my own unique twists in. Taking inspiration from AD&D as well, as the originals borrowed elements from such games.
One of my favorite games of all time was Wizardry 5 for the SNES I liked 6-8 pretty well, I never beat 8. I beat the socks off of 6 and 7 though. I think 6 was my favorite out of the triology.
Wiz 8 was pretty good, but never got far. Played a bit of 5 on the SNES, but did awful and hadn't touched it since. I like a bunch of Wiz clones (Elminage, Dark Spire, or even Etrian Odyssey if you count it similar enough), and am gonna play the original in the coming days.
I will say, if you're going to try the original wizardry out, maybe take another shot at 5. I think that was maybe the best pre 6-7-8 wizardry game there was. For me anyways. I'd play the SNES version if you can get it.
