Name: Realms of Quest II: Anniversary Edition
Author: Ghislain
Released: August 2, 2011.
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive
Description: This month marks the 20th anniversary of Realms of Quest. It was in the Summer of 1991 that I embarked on making a computer role playing game for the Commodore VIC-20. I was successful in completing the first one, but I had given up in creating a sequel shortly afterwards. I did create about 20 monster portrait graphics pixel by pixel with a simple graphics program, however. In 2004, I programmed a "mini" version of Realms of Quest II intended for the Minigame Competition; minus the portrait graphics, because to use them would surpass the 4K limit that the competition required.

So twenty years after I had made the original Realms of Quest I, I decided to revamp the first two games. And so I took the portrait graphics I had made in 1992-93 and combined them with the Minigame version of Realms of Quest II. So finally after all these years, there is a fuller and more complete version of the middle of this CRPG series.

Instructions on how to play can be read from the main game menu.
