'''Legend Entertainment''' was a company founded by former members of Creator/{{Infocom}}, focusing on {{text adventure}}s with static pictures to the side. Creator/SteveMeretzky was their most prominent writer. Many of their games were adaptations of popular SF&F books, usually faithful to the spirit, even if rather loose.
