Synopsis

Plot

Set in three parts, Knight Orc casts you as an oppressed orc in a magical world where all is not as it first seems. For generations humans have been persecuting orcs, and now it´s time to get your own back. Knight Orc is a challenging game which is truly interactive. Each character leads its own life in the game, and their actions can affect you and the outcome of the adventure. Communication with other characters, lerning spells and solving puzzles are all a vital part of the game if you are to escape the mystical world and take revenge on humankind.

Notes

Heavily inspired by MUD. This was Level 9's first game utilizing their KAOS engine, setting the standard for games to come: three parts and many puzzles based around NPCs. The C64 version was available in a disc version with graphics and a text-only version with additional text.

The end of the game subtly links it to the Silicon Dreams trilogy.

The BBC version appears to have been coded but may not have been published after all.

Don't think Knight Orc was ever actually released for the BBC Micro or Electron:
