Non-linear retrogaming?

Got to love the freedom to just to muck around as you please in the game world. Any titles that come to mind?

@Nogg

Hello there,

Welcome to the EAB, I am sure you will like it here, theres plenty of mischief to get into


for me here are as some games come to mind first
  • Hunter
  • Elite
  • Elite 2: Frontier
  • Mercenary
  • Captive (*arguably*)
  • whales Voyage
  • Uropa
  • k240 (*arguably*)

those are some that come to mind... theres bound to be plenty!

Midwinter, a variation on Hunter, both are openended.

I think you need to differentiate between openended and nonlinear.

openended = freedom in world exploration, nonlinear = freedom in storyline manipulation.

That said, I'm unable to name a nonlinear Amiga game...

Edit: after a Wiki, I see some use the term "nonlinear" more loosely, merely as "choice". I think perhaps "sandbox" is the more correct term for these type of games, as is shown by this link:

What about the first GTA?
I would drive around for ages
Or is this limited to Amiga games?
