Dragon Lore is a point-and-click adventure game released in 1994 by Cryo Interactive for MS-DOS CD-ROM, and later ported to the 3DO game console. The hero plays Werner, a farm boy who must interact with various characters in a fantasy atmosphere, solve puzzles, and fight enemies. Eventually the protagonist uncovers that he is the orphaned son of the late Axel von Wallenrod, a "Dragon Knight". Werner sets out to uncover his past and reclaim his heritage.

Technical issues and release information.[edit | edit source]

The PC version had a relatively high conventional memory requirement which made the game difficult to run unless the user first edited the autoexec.bat and config.sys files and/or created a boot disk. The game likely gained some recognition due to being bundled with multimedia kits such as those by Reveal. At that time, many personal computers were not equipped with CD-ROMs and sound cards out of the box, and users wanting these features may have chosen their kit based on the pack-in software. The Reveal 4x CD-ROM kit featured the SC400 sound card, speakers, and a large bundle of multimedia software including games and educational titles. Besides Dragon Lore, this kit featured another Cryo Interactive game, MegaRace.
