    Ein Wizardry Adventure

    Das Böse, das einst eine ganze Zivilisation zerstört hat, ist zurück und hat nur ein Ziel: Vernichtung. Nur die Kraft, die von den sieben mitherianischen Talismanen ausgeht, kann den Kreuzzug der dunklen Mächte in diesem Echtzeit-Rollenspiel-Adventure auf PC CD-ROM stoppen. In den Ruinen von Nemesis beginnt ein mörderischer Wettlauf um die Relikte einer längst vergangenen Zeit. Und Sie sind mittendrin.

Computer Gaming World #147 October 1996:
    Only one adventure has earned the Wizardry title...

    The Wizardry series has sold millions of copies world wide. This fall, Sirtech ushers in Nemesis, the world's first Wizardry Adventure. At Sirtech "Wizardry" is a name a product earns, and Nemesis has been put through the wringer.

    Over 3 gigabytes (5 CDs) of intense virtual worlds bring new meaning to the phrase "epic story." With the deliberate absence of video, Nemesis combines over 10,000 frames of original 3D art and SVGA animations, with real time interaction.

    This is an intense story about virtual beings with real lives and real enemies that make your visit real unpleasant. Nemesis marks the beginning of yet another Wizardry Legend.
