I remember playing a game where I believe you play as a troll. (I might be wrong about the troll, I just remember the playable character was ugly looking.) Potions were involved. I remember specifically that the layout of the rooms were 3rd person diagonal layout.

I played it in the mid to late 90s. I wish I could remember if it ran on Windows 95 or 98. It was fully colored.

I know it’s a long stretch but if anyone remembers this, it’s one of the last things from my childhood that’s been haunting me.

  • @PaulD.Waite - Possibly worth posting some examples to give them an idea what you mean

    Do you remember what part of the 90s you played this in, and which PC platform this was on?

  • I’d say mid to late 90s. And windows 95 I believe was the platform. Wish I could give more information, but I turned 10 in ‘98 so my memory is fuzzy. Thanks for any help

  • @Valorum Isometric as in, say, the game Fairlight. There's an in-game screenshot at spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=0001712 . Apr 30, 2022 at 21:10

Could this be Planescape Torment? The Nameless One is somewhat trollish looking, and it was isometric with a point-and-click interface.

  • Or Baldur's Gate...or Diablo?
