ULTIMA 8: PAGAN is a adventure/role-playing game where you play the part of the Avatar. Avatar is the character you have been playing since Ultima I. This time, however, you are suddenly thrown into the evil Guardian's world. The Guardian's world is a desolated place where you are completely alone and have no idea as to where to go or what to do.
Ultima 8 is different from previous Ultimas due to real time combat and playing (such as in Diablo), "obstacle courses", climbing and jumping. You also cannot have a party like in earlier Ultima games. You are always alone.
The music in this game underlines the overall atmosphere, which is dark and mysterious. It is one of the best made music scores and backgrounds for the games of that time.
Controls are completely mouse driven, and need some practice, but it is not hard to master them after learning the basics.
To be able to play the game under Windows XP / 2000 you will need DosBox, and as for playing the game with sound and music, you also need VDMsound, which you can get here.
I hope you enjoy it!
Pentagram is a Emulator with which you can run the Game.

Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
