"Blackwyche" is a video game for the Commodore 64 developed and released by Ultimate Play The Game in 1985. It is a sequel to "The Staff of Karnath" and "Entombed", and features the same aristocrat adventurer, Sir Arthur Pendragon.

Introduction

Typically for an Ultimate release, players are given a tantalising and cryptic introduction :

:"Out of dark rolling mists it came, a shadowy outline drifting slowly through the silent waters of the night. As it drew closer, there formed the ghostly shape of a large galleon.

:My eyes beheld a strange luminescence surrounding the vessel, as though it was being driven towards me by some powerful supernatural force.

:My heart began to pound with fear as I knew that this could not be real. How could this timeless ship have roamed the seas for more than two centuries? If so, what terrible fate could have befallen the crew?

:As I gazed in wonder at this astounding sight, the ship slowly came to a halt close to my meagre craft, almost inviting me to investigate its long-since deserted decks.

:I drew my craft closer and climbed aboard as my curiosity began to burn with desire to know more of this mysterious ship. The presence of some evil force became even stronger as I wandered down those god forsaken decks and I felt its very essence surrounding me like some shadowy veil ..."
