Back in September, we learned that Herve Caen was looking to sell Interplay's remaining intellectual properties. As far as I can tell, he's yet to find a buyer willing to pay for them all. That may have something to do with why over the past half year or so, Interplay has been releasing its games (the majority of which were longtime GOG-exclusives) on Steam. It may also be why they're being sold for a higher price than on GOG, which is total bullshit. Whatever the case, as of today all of Interplay's RPGs that they still own are available on Steam, which is worth a newspost.
That means 1990's unofficial Bard's Tale sequel Dragon Wars, 1995's live-action dungeon crawler Stonekeep, and 2003's famously disappointing historical fantasy RPG Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader. Of these three games, Dragon Wars is probably the only unambiguously good one, although it's also the least modern. All three cost $10 on Steam, as opposed to GOG's $6, which is...yeah (although Dragon Wars does have a 40% discount until next week because it was released today). In short, wait for a sale. Hopefully there'll be a decent one at some point. Herve doesn't seem to do them as often as he used to.
