Description official description

The blessed island of Ymros is always at ease thanks to the Shard Of Spring -- a crystal that bestows eternal springtime. Now, the evil sorceress Siriadne has stolen the sacred shard and you have to get it back. The world you once knew has fallen to hunger, famine and despair. Everyone now asks you to come forward and take the challenge!

Shard of Spring is a role-playing game, in which the player creates and builds up a party of adventurers composed of the traditional races of humans, elves, dwarves, trolls, and gnomes. The two main classes are warrior and wizard; each class specializes in different skills (such as elemental proficiencies). Towns are represented by simple text menus; most of the action takes place in the dungeons, fighting enemy parties in turn-based combat.

Additional conversions of the game were planned for Atari ST and Amiga computers. In the SSI 87/88 (Fall/Winter) catalog, the following is noted about the Atari version "..due to circumstances beyond our control, the Atari ST version of Shard of Spring has been cancelled". While the same was not written about the Amiga version at that time, the game was not released for that system either.
