PowerPC version of Eschalon: Book I for free!

Looking through some old files, we’ve found a copy of the PowerPC version of Eschalon: Book I. Those of you that have vintage Macs sitting around can still get some enjoyment from it, so here it is: the full Mac (PowerPC) version of Book I!

>> Download <<

Notice: we are unable to offer any support for this software, so if it doesn’t work for you, we’re sorry! Also, people are going to ask about the PPC version of Book II. It does exist, though we haven’t located the files for that game yet. When we do, we’ll be happy to post it too.

Thank you for a great 2014!

Dearest Fan/Customer/Friend:

The staff at Basilisk Games want to thank you for a wonderful 2014. The final Eschalon game was launched last February and marked the end of a long road for us. Thank you for being part of it!

As for 2015 and beyond, all we can say right now is that a number of projects are brewing here in the studio. We’ll be working on a few smaller titles outside the Basilisk Games label while we continue to develop our next RPG franchise. There is also a growing number of requests from fans to see the Eschalon series rebuilt with a HD widescreen engine, additional content and extended storyline. Anything is possible; the future is bright with unlimited possibilities, much like it was when we started Book I development back in 2005!

Thanks again for your support. We will see all of you next year!
