    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

Retrogaming Game Maps: Darklands (PC)

Back in 1992, MicroProse released a RPG that sent gamers back to the 15th Century to stave off the Apocalypse.  Darklands was set in and around what we now call Germany, with real old-world city names and locations, and remains the only game set in the Holy Roman Empire (that I am aware of).  It was (and is!) a great game to play, but only after fully patched; it was riddled with bugs upon its original release, some of which crashed the game straight to the DOS prompt!

Darklands remains a sought-after retro game, but, on occasion, a copy of the game is missing its game map.  Well, break out the color printer and get ready to adventure in the chaos of 15th Century Germania, because here is the game map for all to use! (Click on the map to see it in its full-sized glory!)
