The Earth has been destroyed by nuclear Armageddon. Your family, as well as other families in your home town, took refuge in the local underground fallout shelter, Silo 64. Only your trusty robo-companion is all that’s left of your life before the blast. All your rations and supplies have been depleted. There’s just one thing left to doโ€ฆ

Pre-Alpha demo of our RPG Lawless Legends Now AVailable!

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Play a pre-alpha version of our RPG Lawless Legends v0.50 on your own Apple IIC, IIE, Emulator,etc~!

About Lawless Legends:

Lawless Legends is a fantasy role playing game set in the wild west for the Apple II, C64, & other modern platforms!
The year is 1856, you have just arrived at Fort Miller, near Mariposa California. The gold rush has now past it’s peak and the region is slowly being over run with cutthroats, thieves, murderers and the like. It seems like drifters from the wilderness are gravitating back into the nearest town they can find. The only other thing keeping the peace in these parts, besides lawmen, are the saloons with their fill of booze, gambling and loose women. To make things worse, there are rumors circulating about mysterious, unnatural things taking place behind the curtain of mountains beyond the local ridges, spreading like wildfire. Itโ€™s getting to the point where most folks are too nervous to venture far from town…even for gold.Lawless Legends is being developed for Apple II & Commodore 64 computers with potential ports to PC/MAC/etc…


NOTE: Controls are A W D S and J I L K – This is a very rough demo so inside buildings and special locations are missing static portraits in the view screen. To enter a building walk into any image of a door. There is no 2d wilderness map, combat or character info yet. We only have the 3d view and simple scripts running right now but more to come! ENJOY!

Download the Apple II disk image here:


We are still looking for coders & graphic artists to pitch in. Please send us a note if you would like to help out.

Thank you,
