Interview and Gallery from Greg Cato – Immortality Contest Winner
Back in 1990, with the release of Ultima VI, a select 10 copies of the game instead of the normal Orb of the Moons came with a special winning infinity or singularity amulet which marked the owner as a winner of the Immortality Contest. These lucky winners had their image featured in Ultima VII. The complete list of known winners can be found here.
Greg Cato has since decided to auction off his entire Ultima collection, including his winning amulet and related documentation for personal reasons. Before the auction ends though, he has been so kind to offer up the Codex a special gallery of screenshots featuring this prized possession.
As an extra special present, Greg Cato has written a wonderful story about his experiences with the Ultima series that the Ultima Codex would also like to share.
