"Dungeon Master is a fantasy role-playing game, the first to feature real-time gameplay. The game included a number of user interface features that made gameplay particularly enjoyable, from a spell system that seemed to be "logical" to the intuitive way the player used the mouse to directly manipulate items in the simulated 3D view. It was released on the [Atari] ST in 1987 and went on to become the ST's best selling product of all time. It was eventually ported to over a dozen platforms in six languages. ... [awards received included] the first ever Special Award for Artistic Achievement from Computer Gaming World when it was initially released." wiki, accessed 03/18 ; p. 480 Games vs Hardware.
