    Default Trying to find name of old PC game

    I remember back in 1999 picking up a shareware disc called 100 action arcade games volume 2 which was distributed by Global Star Software. Sadly the disc is long gone but I can still recall playing some of the great demos on it (Duke Nukem 3D, Rise of the Triad, Action Supercross, Death Rally). One of the demos was an RPG in the same vein of the early turn based Final Fantasies, but I can't remember what it is called. All I can remember is that at one point the main character was fighting rats in a sewer.

    Anyone have the disc kicking around and are willing to post a game listing?

    Not many Japanese styled RPGs on the PC, which cuts down the prospects considerably...

    Septerra Core? It came out in 1999.

    ... The forum's search thing isn't working for me, but I think I got a copy of that disc recently. It's not in my finds pictures, but I'll go look for it.

    Edit: Dammit, it's Volume 4. Sorry.

    Siege of Avalon? It looks a more Diablo then FF, but you fight rats early on in the game. It was one of the first games to be sold by the chapter, with the first chapter being given away free via downloads and demo discs. It would not surprise me if it was also released on some of those "500 Games!" kind of discs.

    Yup. Maybe Neophyte?

    Or Aspetra?

    Wow, really? The answer is almost never Aspetra. How about that?

    DOSBox is always worth a whirl.

    I expected to see a bunch of smart-assed replies about how nobody could possibly come up with a game's name based on "you fight rats in a sewer" -- instead, someone came up with the answer in under 10 responses. This place never ceases to amaze me.
