Any moves to rewrite Patrician III.

  • I enjoy Patrician 3, but, under Steam and WIndows 10, it is unplayable. Frequent crashes and limited to 800x600 graphics.

    I have raised the issue with Kalypso Media. Their response was:

    "thank you for your ongoing interest in Patrician 3 but the developers
    moved on to more recent projects. There are currently no patches /
    updates planned to establish compatibility with windows 8 or 10."

    That suggest to me that the game is defunct as far as they are concerned. Yet I note they are still selling it on Steam.

    Well, I enjoy the game, and would be sorry to see it go, does anybody know of a project to write a modern version? If there is one I would like to help.

  • I would like to be part of a rewrite. I once even started a game, but I always end on the graphics. I'm a terrible artist. But for the game play mechanisms and AI I would be interested in helping. I have a post by Whistler that has many good ideas.
