Dreamforge's first game as Event Horizon is a solid overhead RPG that deftly combines real-time action and physical puzzles (e.g. traps, switches) with traditional RPG gaming. The plot which involves arcane artifacts and the usual big-foozle-out-to-destroy-the-world setting, starts out cliche (you are chosen to enter DarkSpyre, an evil stronghold) and quickly picks up the pace. It's a good game, with innovative story-based character creation system that would become Dreamforge's hallmark in subsequent RPGs.
