In-depth Review: Dragon’s Lair - Electronic Theatre

Much like Pong, Space Invaders, Pac-Man and even Mario himself, Dragon’s Lair is a videogame property that surely needs no introduction. Originally released in 1983, Dragon’s Lair defined a short-lived genre by paving the way for a new form of interactive media. A common debate in the modern videogames industry is the progression of the conventions that allow for interactive storytelling, and yet often forgotten is one low budget adventure videogame that broke new ground while uttering no more than a handful of lines of dialogue.
