How do you play retro games?

Ecstatica series

Group Description

A pair of games by Andrew Spencer + co. featuring the Dark Ages adventures of a nameless hero and the magic-wielding enchantress Ecstatica in medieval Europe facing off against a wide array of monstrous and supernatural foes. All this in pseudo-3D: instead of animating characters (against matte painting-style static backdrops) using flat-faced polygons, they are all made of abstract collections of "spheroids" -- roundish blobs in their sum suggesting believable movements of comic and fanciful beings.
