This was my favorite game back in the day. Played it over and over and over again and never got tired of it. I had played it through so many times that my characters’ attributes were all in triple digits.
I started thinking about it yesterday for some reason and decided that I HAD to play it again, but alas, my old disks are long gone (or buried in my parents basement somewhere, which is as good as long gone), and even if I had them in my hands, #1) I have a Mac, and #2) even if I had a PC it would not have the appropriate disk drive. What to do?!
Luckily we live in a day and age where such problems are trivial matters. A few minutes of Googling yielded a free copy of the game from an abandonware site and another few minutes of searching yielded a program (Boxer) that runs what appears to be a perfect emulation of MS-DOS on my Mac!
I was playing Wasteland until almost midnight and I can’t wait to get home and continue. Meanwhile I’m thinking about looking for some of my other old MS-DOS favorites, if only I could remember the names…
