    Wheel Of time was a 12 book series written by Robert Jordan, who also wrote Conan novels.
    There was a game back in the day for the series that was done by Legend Entertainment, using the Unreal engine.
    It was a great game, and You can never have too many fantasy games that are based on a rich history like the Wheel of time series.
    Now if they would only do games based on books by Jack Chalker…..

    A good, solid fantasy series, but surely the whole point of the books (ie the incredibly intricate plotting that spreads plotlines over not just chapters, but whole books) would be lost in a game?
