    I still have the original at home. But it's great to see this true gem if old available to newer generations.

    Samesies, along with Sierra's unofficial Hellfire expansion which adds a monk character and lets you run in town.

    I've bought the GOG version anyway. Works fine in a Windows 10 VM, though the "high resolution" support is, naturally, just upscaling. Couldn't get it running properly on Wine in Linux, though: best I managed was having it in a 640x480 block at the top-left of my 1920x1200 monitor.

    I've still got my Windows 95 Plus! Pack VM with Diablo and Hellfire installed, though!

    Any resolution you fancy, *but* it's just upscaling the image - this isn't a remaster, just a re-release with compatibility fixes.
