Dungeon Master playable preview???
I am searching for the official Dungeon Master playable preview-version by FTL which must have been released in 1987/88.

The preview was on one floppydisk, and it started up like the full version. At the entrance of the dungeon there was a scroll lying on the ground including the message "dungeon master preview" (or something like that). When you opened the door and entered the dungeon, you were able to choose 4 characters (repertory of characters was not as big as in the full version). The preview showed some basic actions like opening doors, using torches, eating, drinking, and so on. A mummy appeared somewhere downstairs and later on you had to fight against two skeletons having swords and shields. Opening the last door, a scripture with "coming soon!" (or something similar) appeared.

I know for 100% that this preview existed, unfortunately I deleted it when I got the full version :(

Google found nothing for me, only the aminet provides a "Preview of Dungeon Master Aid .43" for Amiga; whatever this might be, it's not the version I described above. Has anybody got the "real" preview as an ADF file???

Thank you very much!

Wish I still had it :-(

I had a search around www.dungeon-master.com forums but no mention of it.

There was a very cool clone on Atari tho... where you can play 2 player DM... :D

This thread is many years old... Would anyone have this Dungeon Master preview somewhere?
This is a really rare piece of software: I know of no other mention of it anywhere but in this thread.
Last year, the Atari ST preview version was found (now available here: http://dmweb.free.fr/?q=node/247). Now it would be very nice to dig out the Amiga preview.
Who takes the challenge?

Thanks !
I have yet looked at this page, maybe I have misunderstood, I thought they were 2 differents Amiga demos ?

dmweb 12 December 2013 00:38

I only have a single Amiga demo on my site. The description in the first post of this thread seem to describe an alternate version, but as far as I know, nobody has it so it will remain a rumor until proven true

Great finds btw, both ST and Amiga demos :bowdown
