Nox Archaist Interviews

Recently several podcasts have interviewed lead developer Mark Lemmert to talk about the challenges of development and the recent release of Nox Archaist.

There is some overlap between the interviews and there is also some different material covered in each. A few highlights are noted below.


  • Early stage of Nox Archaist project. How early goals were massively widened in scope to the game it became. 


  • Near disaster! How fears of a release bug almost resulted in an emergency software patch on release day
  • Q&A with live stream audience 


  • Technical explanation of how 5-bit Pulse Width Modulation is able to produce clear human voice sound on the stock Apple II speaker. 
  • Why Mobius and Windwalker developer Greg Malone allegedly owes a cheeseburger to former Origin Systems programmer Dr. Cat

Woz announces his appearance as an NPC in Apple II RPG Nox Archaist!

To say that we are insanely excited about this is an understatement!


We are immensely honored that the inventor of the computer that Nox Archaist is written for appears as a character in the game.

When you find Woz, he'll talk to you about Apple computer history and share some of his favorite jokes.

Nox Archaist has officially been released!

We are excited to announce that Nox Archaist has been released!

Backers of the game should have received an email with a link to the Digital Download version of the game. If you did not receive the email, please check your spam folder and, for Gmail users, the "Promotional" tab. 

Physical rewards have begun to ship for backers who selected option2 on the survey we sent last month. We estimate 2-7 days for backers in the United States to receive their physical rewards, and 3-8 weeks for backers in all other countries. 2020 has delivered some unique challenges for shipping carriers and there is a chance a small number of shipments will see longer transit times.

You will receive an email from when your rewards ship.

It has been a long journey and this milestone is very exciting for us and we hope for you as well.

And, the journey is not over! We look forward to interacting with you as you play Nox Archaist and invite you to join the backer community Discord.

As promised, our work on the floppy version of the game continues and we will strive to release it to you as soon as we possibly can.

Thank you for your support, and enjoy the game!
