Spirit Of Excalibur Spirit of Excalibur is a 1990 computer game developed by Synergistic Software for a number of different platforms, including Amiga, PC, Atari ST, Apple IIGS and Apple Macintosh and distributed by Virgin Mastertronic, Inc.. As the game's title hints, Arthurian legend with the myths of the Knights of the Round Table and the Holy Grail lend their elements to the game background with both fictional and historical works used as sources to recreate the atmosphere of the age of king Arthur and to draw out characters' names, history and relationships. Among such sources one can cite the well known work of Sir Thomas Malory, Morte d'Arthur or the more recent The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, but also a number of historical treatises on Arthur of the late 1980s. Spirit of Excalibur falls into the RPG category of games where the player is in control of a host of characters, rather than a single one, and as such he has to explore with them Arthurian England in an attempt to solve quests the game is made of and reach the final goal of uniting Britain under a single king.
