While we work on Lawless Legends we thought you’d like a NEW mini adventure to play: Ancient Legends is a fantasy Role Playing game made for the Apple II series of home computer created by 8 Bit Weapon and friends! The game was created as a DEMO for the Outlaw Editor!

Download your free Ancient Legends copy here:



Download an Apple II emulator for Windows here:  http://wsxyz.net/applewin.html
The Story: You are Quinn of Thane, the westernmost island in Merkania. Since the last of great wars your family has lived in peaceful seclusion for generations. Raised on ancient legends, you have often dreamed of exploring what lies beyond the island. You surmise that dark times must have befallen the mainland, as dark creatures now sully the sanctuary of your island home as well.

Now you are the last of your line and have decided to venture to the mainland and seek your fortune! You pack your things, take your family’s heirloom amulet for luck and enter the forest for adventure…

The game is a demo for the powerful Outlaw Editor game development system:

Enjoy, adventurer!
