Legerdemain

Legerdemain is a fantasy computer role-playing game (CRPG) that you can play for free. Just click on the desired distribution below and your download should begin.

Java Web Start distribution (recommended for newcomers)

The simplest installation of all. Click on the link below and your browser will handle the download and launch the game automatically. You’ll be required to click Yes on a security dialog to give Legerdemain permission to write to your hard drive. The game needs to be able to do this in order to save your progress.

  • Legerdemain v1.1.0 via Java Web Start (last modified 02 Sep 2010): download here

Regular distribution

Two formats here: a .zip bundle and a .tar.gz bundle. The former works best with Windows systems; the latter for Macs and Linux. You can extract the bundle to any folder you like and run the batch file that lives inside of it. Besides the initial download and launch sequence, this distribution behaves identically to the Java Web Start distribution.

CD distribution

Legerdemain requires Java to be installed on your system in order to run. Chances are you already have it. But if you don’t have Java and don’t want all the fuss, the CD distribution is for you. It comes with Legerdemain and Java bundled together on a CD-R designed to run on Windows, Linux, and Mac systems. Just pop the CD in and click the batch file and you’re ready to go.

The CD distribution is available as part of the official Legerdemain map and cluebook package, available for purchase here.
