Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gold Box is the name for a series of computer role-playing games produced by SSI. The company won a license to produce games based on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game from TSR, Inc. These games shared a common engine that came to be known as the "Gold Box Engine" after the gold boxes in which most games of the series were sold. In 1985 TSR, after seeing the success of the Ultima series, offered its license to game developers. Ten companies, including Electronic Arts and Sierra Entertainment, applied for the license. SSI President Joel Billings acquired the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) license from TSR in a 1987 major deal due primarily to their computerised wargaming experience and their broader vision. The development of the Gold Box engine and the original games was managed by SSI's Chuck Kroegel and George MacDonald. Later versions were led by Victor Penman and Ken Humphries.show more
