Making of Nox Archaist Book ---NEW--


We are excited to announce the Making of Nox Archaist book is now available for preorder, expected to ship early December 2021! 

Click HERE to reserve your copy of the printed edition + ebook, both with color cover and interior!

In the Making of Nox Archaist, co-founder and lead developer Mark Lemmert talks about how making the game began as a childhood dream and ended with the first commercial role-playing game released on the Apple II in 30 years. 

Mark describes the challenges, including a failed Kickstarter, the Apple’s quirky graphics system, and getting decent audio out of a one-bit speaker. Along the way, the team received help from many sources, including Richard Garriott (Lord British), Dr. Cat, Burger Becky, and Steve Wozniak (Woz). Finally, after a wildly-successful Kickstarter and a year of non-stop coding, Mark details how an obscure floppy-disk bug nearly derailed the entire project just weeks before release.

We hope that you enjoy reading our story! Preorder HERE!


Also, the official Book of Hints is in stock, available as a coil bound print + e-book or e-book only. 

Order your copy HERE.

Designed for new players, experienced players and replays.
