The Wizardry series of computer role-playing games consists of:

  1. Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord (1981)
  2. Knight of Diamonds (1982)
  3. Legacy of Llylgamyn (1983)
  4. The Return of Werdna (1986)

  6. Bane of the Cosmic Forge (1990)
  7. Crusaders of the Dark Savant (1992) (Remade as Wizardry Gold in 1996)
  8. Wizardry 8 (2001)

The first and last three games were trilogies.

Wizardry began as a simple dungeon hack by Andrew Greenberg and Robert Woodhead of Sir-Tech. David W. Bradley took over the series after the fourth installment, adding a new level of plot and complexity. Woodhead went on to found the North American anime import company Animeigo[?]. Wizardry was quite successful in Japan which led to the making of an OVA (direct-to-video animation).
