The Adventures of Maddog Williams in the Dungeons of Duridian was released by Game Crafters in 1992. The game is a cross between a text adventure and a role-playing game whereby the player took the role of Maddog Williams, a shopkeeper from the seaside town of Marinor.

Maddog Williams was released on Amiga, Atari ST and PC and a sequel was planned for release entitled Escape from Cylindria. Currently the game is freely available for download from the developers' website.

Gameplay[edit]

Players control the titular Maddog Williams and must guide him through eight quests spread over the game's length.[1] The quest begins in Maddog's home, the player is able to explore before gradually finding clues on how to progress further due to the relatively non-linear nature of the game compared to other adventures.[2] The game's environments house objects to manipulate and non-player characters to converse with for information, as well as enemies who can be vanquished through combat.[1]
