Ahoy Captain Cats here and today we are going to look at a very important series that played a role in video game history and that series is Neverwinter Nights.
Neverwinter Nights( NN for short) was released in 1991 as part of the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Gold Box series that were released from 1988 till 1992 and were considered one of the best series that came out during the AD&D SSI and TSR game era.
NN was developed by AOL (yes that AOL) Beyond Software, SSI, and TSR. The game was released on PC in March of 1991 and NN will go down in video game history as the first multiplayer online role-playing game. NN became a huge success and would be the inspiration for other MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, Everquest, Guild Wars, and so on.
Neverwinter Nights had its servers shut down in 1997 but it was enough for it to create a new kind of online gaming experience that is still being used to this day.
