NES nostalgics, this is for you. Dragon Quest Creator Yuji Horii shared on twitter a real treat, in the form of a batch of original design documents for the first game, released in 1986.

The documents, that you can see in the gallery below, include a map and a sheet of see-through paper with notations that could be positioned over the map to indicate the dialogue prompts, which are included in the third and fourth documents.

Can’t say this doesn’t remind me of my days as pen and paper RPG dungeon master…

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
