Icewind Dale was originally developed for the PC by Interplay’s Black Isle Studios. Based on Bioware’s Infinity game engine — the same used in Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II, for example — Icewind Dale is a sprawling role playing adventure game which follows Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Third Edition Rules.
In this game you and your party — comprised of up to six individual characters — make your way across and under the Spine of the World, a range of ice-covered mountains far to the north in the Forgotten Realms. You’ll collect treasure, fulfill quests and battle vicious monsters in a classic “dungeon crawl”-style adventure game.
In addition to support for both “Classic” Mac OS and Mac OS X, Icewind Dale also features TCP/IP-based multiplayer support and support for the popular Mac-only online gaming service GameRanger.
