How It Begins
- The initial codename in Infocom development of this project was (likely facetiously) Z6, or "Zork Six". However, the working title quickly became "Mage". The intention was to continue the previous tradition of naming the post-Zork fantasy adventures after positions of wizards (Such as Enchanter and Sorcerer). Infocom's marketing department resisted this name, insisting that a one-word semi-obscure term like Mage would not sell well. After some contention (and an attempt to use the name Archmage) the title Spellbreaker was chosen and used. It is referred in its packaging as the third game in the Enchanter Series.
- Regardless, the commercial release of Spellbreaker calls itself Mage every 100 or so reboots.
- Spellbreaker (Dave Lebling; publisher: Infocom; 1985; Z-code 3).
Spellbreaker is available on the Classic Text Adventure Masterpieces of Infocom CD.
