Default WarWizard - possible to find?

Now I guess here is a game you won't be able to find anywhere (I hope I'm wrong): War Wizard, from MicroGenesis.
All I could find out is that it has been released as shareware somewhere in 1993-94, first for Amiga, then for PC. There is some information about contacting the company but nothing of it is valid now. No information about ordering or buying it somewhere now. I don't know if it is still possible to purchase that game or if it has been abandoned...
I played it in 1994 as shareware and could say there is no comparison to the big games like Ultima VI, but this game has its charme and makes some real fun.
I wonder if you could manage to get any information about purchasing it now or even gain acces to it (you have my deepest gratitude then :wink: ).

P.S. Some more info: this game is RPG, and the company is in CA, which could be either Canada or California (or other).
There is a good review at http://wuarchive.wustl.edu/aminet/docs/rvi...w/WarWizard.txt

Well, I combed through all of the abandonware-sites I could find that doesn't demand a download of dialup-program, and this game was NOWHERE to find, just like I said. I searched some sites too for ordering and/or byuing games, with same result. Seems this game is lost for the future...
By the way, if you are interested, I have the shareware version of the game, it's approximately 4 MEGs large (uncompressed).

Hehe, no, Wizard Wars i've seen somewhat often on these sites, but it's not that game. Seems that War Wizard was an VERY little-known game...
It is a nice game though.

Wow.
That game really IS difficult to find...

Nonetheless I have managed to find something out, that will help me later with my searches

The game was made by two people; Brad McQuaid and his friend Steve Clover. The work began in 1989 and was released as shareware in 1993.

Brad McQuaid later went on to produce the famous "EverQuest"!!!
So from what I can tell, his baby (WarWizard) should have a great potential!


Can't wait until I have nailed the game with screenshots and the like.
As always I shall keep you informed of any progress that I make.

For those og you who want to read the above statement in a more detailed text, I have included the link below.

Yes it had somewhat potential, but if you manage to find this game somewhere somehow available consider yourself as an internet's best seeker of all (all my hope ridez on your skill 8) )
