Imperium was a game by JÁ¶rg SchlieÁŸer which was mean’t to be published by the Tronic Verlag, and like Captain Stark has not been seen anywhere.
This game was told to be a SF-RPG, described as unique on the German RPG market. It received very high ratings.
The aim was to guide a party of 4 characters through a mission, which was divided into three levels. The screen arrangement was as in Ultima. There were lots of sounds and little graphics and lots of features mentioned.
A shame that a finished RPG doesn’t seem to have made it, and the reasons are so unclear to why Tronic Verlag let this game go.
Or did they actually release it?…. A full game is here to download, but can anyone claim to own an original?
Well, contributor LDX#40 confirms that they bought the game back in the day from German magazine ASM. The game came in a plain white box with just an ASM sticker on it (as you can see in the scans – same label as the disk). LDX#40 has very kindly made scans of the disk and manual, which you can now find below.
A good little RPG from Tronic Verlag…
