    Maddog Williams is an adventure game made by Game Crafters. It features Maddog
    Williams as an inventor living in the town of Marinor. Having received a
    reputation for bad inventions after his latest device catapulted a glass of
    beer at a vicious thug in a pub, Maddog decides it would be best to leave. As
    he collects his belongings, Maddog stumbles upon a cave where a sacrifice is
    about to start. A quick rescue mission later, and a grateful maiden tells him
    that her father is being held captive by an evil wizard in the dungeons of
    Duridian. Maddog decides to make the long journey to the dungeons to save him.
