GAMEproducer Arranges Polish Publishing
for Long-Awaited Wizardry 8
GAMEproducer announced today that CD Projekt

role-playing game Wizardry 8. The PC title is the sequel to Wizardry 7:
Crusaders of the Dark Savant.
Developed by Sir-tech Canada, Wizardry 8 is a
project that has enjoyed a devoted following as it is reputed to be the hottest

incredibly powerful artifact possessing the secret of life. Two powerful races-
the T’Rang and the Umpani, trail him- as well as a courageous throng of
adventurers. All are off to the birthplace of the stolen relic, a world on the
cusp of the cosmic circle named Dominus, home of the Cosmic Lords. Countless
paths will converge on Dominus, and many clandestine secrets will be unearthed.
