Description

Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire is a spin-off of Ultima games, taking the series' protagonist, the Avatar, into strange and mysterious places outside the scope of a conventional dungeon-based RPG. In this game, the hero visits Eodon, an Amazonian world dominated by dinosaurs. Many characters populate this world, including stone-age tribes, mad scientists, and lizardmen. But not all the inhabitants of Eodon are peaceful - get ready to fight for survival as gorillas, pterodanodons and tigers encroach.

The game is made with the Ultima VI engine, and is very similar to that game visually and gameplay-wise. Like Ultima VI, the game is set in a seamless graphical world, and offers many objects to interact with and combine, party management, and turn-based combat. Compared to Ultima VI, some gameplay features have been simplified. There are less spells, less emphasis on character development, and conversations with NPCs are more limited.

Trivia

The SNES version of this game was set to be released in the US by the NY-based subsidiary of FCI, Pony Canyon's Japanese mother-company, when FCI abruptly closed their US game department. It had been losing money for some time, and they didn't want to make the investment necessary to move from 16 bit game systems to 32 bit systems.

FCI and Pony Canyon had a working relationship with ORIGIN. They ported ORIGIN's role-playing games to the NES, SNES, and Gameboy. FCI's Metal Morph was programmed by ORIGIN.

FCI had been working on porting ORIGIN's Wing Commander II to SNES when they were closed.
