PLEASE NOTE: LICENCE SITUATION
Trademark and intellectual property of the Eye of the Beholder series are owned by Wizards of the Coast LLC.
Unfortunately we could not manage to receive a licence for this port and it is not fully covered by the WotC open licence, which prevents any distribution in a commercial manner. So decision has been made to provide the Commodore 64 version as open source to the C64 community.
Given this situation, we recommend purchasing the original version, which is currently available on GOG and Steam as part of
“Forgotten Realms: The Archives – Collection One”.
