Ultima Worlds Savage Empire and Martian Dreams - Free

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Woodsman, Jun 18, 2012.

    Free on GOG.com, no DRM, and packaged to run on Windows.

    Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire - GOG.com

    Ultima Worlds of Adventure 2: Martian Dreams - GOG.com

    These are actually very expensive to buy on ebay. You may think you can get Savage Empire for pretty cheap, but it's actually some EA 10-game CD pack and it doesn't have some of the stuff with it.

    Yes, they aren't the normal Ultimas, but they are Ultimas and they are free. And Ultima IV is still free if you haven't picked it up.

    I keep getting an error saying gogdownloader is not associated when I click on the installer download.

    NM figured it out.. I had GoG.com downloader service turned on by mistake.

    Thanks Woodsman!

    Well I guess that was the uo news for the 18th Jeff hinted at. Maybe now that all of the ultima games are re-released the next big news will be something.... New. I hope. Thes always that ultima four mystery lurking about.

    Ultima IX is not up there. Would be nice to have a fully patched IX that plays nice, I never got the last round of patched/corrected CDs, just downloaded the patches and applied as needed.

    Although there is the Beautiful Britannia mod for IX.

    A Martian Dreams remake would probably do pretty well, given how big the steampunk stuff is these days.

    Two great games i've wanted to officially own for a very long time. And of course, scans of the cluebooks are always welcome...


    Actually i'd still love to see a translation of the SNES port of Savage Empire, too...

    Did they ever even do a fully patched CD? I used the downloadable 1.19 patch as well.
    I been meaning to try the 1.19f patch but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    There were 'remastered' CDs according to the original site

    I'm not sure what versions the remastered CDs were, but I remember they came with a copy of UO.

    Yay, Martian Dreams completes my Ultima collection. Just wish I had it in a box like the others. *sighs*

    Not willing to pay $70 on Ebay?

    It's nice to have all but the last Ultima up there on GOG.

    I haven't looked on eBay for it in nearly a decade :p I think the last Ultima games I bought off there were Apple versions of UI-UIII.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing! Does the UO team have anything to do with GOG? Can they pass along suggestions to them? If so, can you guys urge them to release Origin's old Knight's of Legend game? This is where the character Segallion from Ultima 6 originated from which indicate ties between the lands. Yes, I know those ties are likely financial cross promotion between games but for the sake of our Ultima project, we want to include it. Also, can you add Moebius - The Orb of Celestial Harmony? I believe there was mention of that as well.

    They had nothing to do with it, it was all ultimacodex.com:

    Savage Empire & Martian Dreams Released on GOG.com (Updated!)

    The only thing Mythic did was allow it to be distributed for free.
