Does this ring a bell for anyone? I don't remember this but that doesn't mean much of anything. duh Caught a bit about it while thumbing through Different Worlds magazine. It was apparently designed by Michael Stackpole and Paul Jaquays.

The one nice thing about the early console video games systems is that there are lots of collectors and most things are well documented.

Tunnels and Trolls was never actually mass marketed. I think there is still a question of whether a prototype was ever made or not. There is a demo with some screenshots though.

Here's a couple of links to the screenshots:

It sounds like it would have been great game for the time.

The game did not even reach the prototype stage. Work did not progress beyond the title screen.
