Ravenloft: Strahd’s Possession, PC

Released in 1994, Ravenloft: Strahd’s Possession was developed by DreamForge Intertainment for Strategic Simulations Inc. and was distributed by US Gold in the UK.

I remember it well because I reviewed it for PC Player magazine back in the day.

Even back in 1994 I thought Strahd’s Possession looked a bit basic. But don’t let that put you off – it’s not a bad game at all. In fact it’s quite absorbing.

Strahd’s Possession is based on the AD&D Ravenloft campaign setting, set in the land of Barovia – a place full of vampires, undead, wargs, brigands, and cads, and one that you must explore in order to escape. Unfortunately a poison mist surrounds you, forcing you to seek counsel from the ruler of the land – the titular Count Strahd.

If you can get over the very basic 3D graphics and the ridiculous-looking monsters (the 2D graphics are excellent though) you’ll find an interesting game underneath.

Ravenloft: Strahd’s Possession is still available to buy on GOG.com now, which – considering that it’s 25 years old – is something of a feat.
