Since I didn’t own a PC at the time, I completely missed out on the original Bard’s Tale entries. The last mainline entry hit the market in 1988 — that’s thirty years ago. That’s a hell of a long time for a franchise to lay dormant, but InXile have become known for resurrecting classic games and imbuing them with just enough of a modern twist. Now, following their successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015, that’s exactly what they’re aiming for with The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep.
