The Dragon's Lair 3D Videogame

The Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair videogame will follow the basic storyline of the arcade classic: Dirk the Daring, a goofy but courageous knight, is on a mission to rescue Princess Daphne, who has been kidnapped by the evil dragon Singe and hidden in the wizard Mordroc's castle. The game will stay true to the design of the1980's arcade classic, but is seven times the size of the original, and includes several new plot twists.

In this version, players will have full control of Dirk, who must overcome challenges such as navigating through a cave of lava, swinging from burning ropes and unlocking hidden chambers in the castle to find Daphne. Princess Daphne also plays an integral new role in the game, acting as a guide for Dirk's journey.  Singe, the Lizard King, the Giddy Goons, the Crypt Creeps and other characters familiar to players of the original arcade game have starring roles, along with over a dozen new characters created by Don Bluth that add new dimensions to the plot.
