  1. Leander

    Leander is a computer game for the Commodore Amiga developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Psygnosis in 1991. It was the first game to be developed by Traveller's Tales. Leander is likened to an earlier Psygnosis game Shadow of the Beast released in 1989. It was designed to run on the earliest Amigas with only 512KB of Chip RAM, such as the Amiga 1000 and A500, which pushed the then 6 years old OCS chipset to its limits. The original version was developed on the Amiga, then it was converted by Philipp Wyatt for W.J.S Design on the Atari ST. A year later it was ported to the Sega Mega Drive as The Legend of Galahad and published by Electronics Arts.
