a quote...
"...we have an agreement with the original The Bard’s Tale III programmer Rebecca “Burger” Heineman and her company Olde Sküül to update the games for modern machines! She will be working to make the games run natively, without needing emulators, on PC or Mac. This re-releases will be primarily based on the Apple IIGS versions of the games, along with updated art."

Also, over at the GOG forums, Burger Becky posted this re: Dragon Wars...

...I'm making an updated version called "Dragon Wars: Remastered" where the code came from the unreleased Windows version, art is from the IIgs, the music and sound is redone by 8 Bit Weapon and background art redrawn by Jennell Jaquays. It will be a native app for Mac, Linux and Windows.

If I can cut a deal, I'll do the same for the Bard's Tale Trilogy. ... gs_version
