Another retro shop, I may have mixed up the other shop with this one, but both have nice stuff, like flight simulator addons.

(e.g. Telengard, Zoarre, Valhalla/Ragnarök) The setting of theses are usually ancient dungeons, though some h...

I sometimes visit a physical retro-store, when I'm in town.
And I see it has a new boxed version of Arcanum available.

1st person/Sideways/Top-down view?
Turned-based/Real-time combat?
Single character or party/squad?
Action/Strategy/RPG type?

Is there any other game you know of that looks a bit like what you are after?
