The Lawless Legends development team has released a new playable demo of their game. The game which has been under development for a number of years is currently at a game version 0.95 but has progressed in leaps and bounds over the past year or so.
The Lawless Legends development team includes long time Apple II programming legends such as Rebecca Heineman, Martin Haye, Brenden Robert, David Schmenk as well as legendary D&D designer Jennell Jaquays and famed documenter Andrew Schultz. The fonts are from Andrew Hogan and the project is being led by Seth and Michelle Sterberger.
