v. 1.5

Kult: Heretic Kingdoms (aka Heretic Kingdoms: The Inquisition) takes place in a land where religion is illegal and the Inquisitors do their best to destroy it. Ever since the GodSlayer sword was used to destroy the God of the Land, religion became taboo. In the years following, the sword was used by the descendants of the man who slew the God of the Land to control the lands. Through sacrifices to appease the hunger for blood that the sword had, the descendants worked to rule through tyranny. Finally, these descendants were defeated and the sword held in safe-keeping by monks. This is where your story begins. You are marked with a God Symbol (a mark some people have from birth that marks them as possibly able to become a mage) and are a female Inquisitor mage. You were sent to destroy the GodSlayer sword, but when you arrive, it has been stolen. So begins your main quest... to capture and destroy the sword. (MobyGames)

The CD contains installers for English, German, French, Spanish and Italian versions.

The updater to v. 1.6 fixes problems with the registration process.

Might well be. A lot of VP games have this issue.

v1.5 is playable without internet, v1.6 not so much.
v1.5 lets you copy-paste the serial code into the window asking for it, v1.6 negatory.
1.6 "fixes problems with the registration" for 'them' not us.

NOTE you will need to keep the Serial # on hand if you ever have to rebuild your system. I have rsync backing up everything, but after a recent rebuild, the game needed the registration code again. Maybe keep in with the game folder.

Great game. Lovely graphics. Frame rate can drop a little when a few enemies are present on screen. Otherwise works great on 1.33ghz PB g4 which is below the recommended cpu speed of 1.5ghz. I Recommend this game for any RPG fan

This is a GREAT game. One of those where the artistic/design choices are kinda' timeless. HIGHLY recommended.
