Castle of the Winds/System Requirements

Castle of the Winds requires a computer running at least Windows 3.x. Other than that, the requirements are almost a non-issue today (except for users of Macintosh and other non-Windows platforms) because of the great advances in computer technology since CoTW’s publication date of 1989, combined with Epic's policy of supporting older systems.

The requirements are a 640x480 monitor (which can be monochrome), and Windows 3.x or higher. The game has been tested on Linux with WINE, but caused reliability issues for some WINE users. The game manual also specifies a 286 or faster CPU, and 2 megabytes of RAM. It is possible (though awkward) to play the game entirely from the keyboard.
