Dragon Slayer from Linel?

Hi
Difficult to discuss about this game which has never been released.
What I want to know if it exists as a demo ?
I see people coming and saying.No,not at all.Dragon sequence has been used in another game (Ring of Medusa),a C64 non-playable demo exists etc etc.
But..there are so many different pictures out there in magazines that I find very strange there weren t any demo or animation set ?
If anyone knows anything apart from what we all know already from the net It will be very helpful because this game is like a treasure to me.


Thanks for reading and sorry for my french


Regards


Alexandre

I too was very interested in this game and very surprised and disappointed that it was not finalized.
It might have looked a little like Barbarian or Skrull, but I would argue that it would have been much better.
I don’t have any more information than the Tilt magazines, Generation 4, published at the time.

Bon courage dans vos recherches

...taken from another website (GTW64)
....Created by Hans Ippisch who was interviewed in an old magazine. A question posed to him was about any unfinished projects which were gathering dust. His reply was that he had started on a game called “Dragon Slayer”, which only one level was ever almost finished.....

The best way is to try contacting him but couldn t
I have the strange feeling this guy was more on C64 conversion or it is just me...

Thank you for the info.
Didn't get the C64 file now but based on your post found this info.
Would be cool if the sister demo for Amiga was available

A few parts from the unreleased game were later used in Rings of Medusa Gold. After Starbyte took the game and wanted to make a Barbarian clone (Warrior of Darkness) out of the Dragon Slayer idea.

You can get 3 x demo versions of "Light Quest" in this archive that Denis uploaded a while back: /TheZone/files/_2017/Lightquest_Unreleased [Lightquest [unreleased] acquired by dlfrsilver...].zip
