I remember as a kid playing free games that used to come with computers. One of them was a 3D medieval dungeon explorer game that also had quests and fishing. It came with a short free trial and you had to purchase the rest of it if you wanted to continue playing. It had a short title. Does anyone remember this game and, if so, know the title of it?

Most video cards used to come with game demos, and some computer manufacturers (Gateway, HP, etc) used to make deals with game publishers, but I don’t remember anything like this coming with Windows itself.

Do you remember about what year it was?

Yeah, about the only thing that ever came with Windows itself was Solitaire. Anything was likely a manufacturer’s bundle.

As for the game in question – not much to go on, but I’m going to take a stab at Ultima Online maybe?

It would help to know how old you are or at least how long ago you were a “kid”.

I remember playing Wolfenstein 3D, which was a dungeon escape scenario, but it was WWII era “first person shooter” type strategy game (the term hadn’t really been invented yet), not a Medieval RPG. It was released in 1992.

Is it a game where you can create magical items. IT might be a mud game like the creators shadow. I don’t know the title. It was free in 1999. It’s the only game that had fishing.

It was somewhere 2005–2010 on what i think was either a dell or HP. It wasn’t an online game either as far as i know. It had a one-word name i think.

Yes i think you could create magical items in it? It didnt have very great graphics so it could have come out in the late nineties

After more digging it was called Fate! thank you guys for helping me figure out it was with a manufacturer bundle!
