Wizardry is a video game franchise created by Sir-Tech. Wizardry was one of the first graphical RPGs, and it continued for eight numbered entries over two decades. While a western series to start with, it would find its popularity in Japan, and today there are more than double the number of Japanese developed Wizardry games as western developed.
The original series followed the same band of adventurers (aside from one where the player controls an ex-villian) in their adventures across the land and eventually into space. The Japanese games are mainly self-contained and stick much closer to the original strict fantasy theme. Most western Wizardry games had a sense of humor to them, but, due to a terrible translation, Japanese gamers grew used to the series being deadly serious.
