One of the most sought after games of all time. Also known as Ultima 0, this game launched the Ultima series, one of the longest-running and most popular computer game series of all time. It is also the first to introduce Lord British, Richard Gariott's alter ego, as well as Mondain, the villain of Ultima 1 and beyond. Play is similar to Ultima 1 if somewhat simpler. The so-called Castle version is the first commercially sold release of the game, and it was quickly changed to the famous Wrong Number cover artwork by Denis Loubet, with a large manual as well, so very few copies of this version exist. Note to discourage any attempts at forgery, the image here has been modified ever so slightly from the original.
