Games that will never receive a sequel

A departure from my usual ramblings, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite games which will never receive a sequel.  Some games roll on and on, and have been with us since the dawn of gaming.

Play Testing

It's been a while so I thought I'd post an update, still working away on the game, today I have been playtesting and balancing. I don't want it to be too difficult and I want it to get harder as you progress. So I have been playing it from the start, making sure there are enough health potions, that monsters don't hit you too hard, and...
