Role On: Avernum: Escape From the Pit

By Jim Rossignol on July 29th, 2011.

Some role-playing, yesterday.
Spiderweb send word that they are starting a new Avernum RPG trilogy. The first episode will be called Escape From The Pit, and should be available in “Q1 2012″. As usual the game will feature fantasy of the epic flavour, and plenty of turn-based combat. It also has an open sort of overall quest structure: “Three separate game-winning quests. Seek safety, escape or revenge. Do just one of them or all three!”

Spiderweb also explain that there will be a discount for previous Avernum series owners: “Avernum: Escape From the Pit for Macintosh and Windows will be available at a considerable discount for anyone who has purchased Exile: Escape From the Pit or Avernum from us in any form (including on compilation CDs).”

Avernum Demo. Yes.

By Kieron Gillen on February 19th, 2008.

Spiderweb Software were name checked in the infamous (and splendid) Vince D Weller Age of Decadence interview as one of the longest running PC-indie RPG developers. They’ve just released a demo of the latest blooming of their hardy perennial Avernum. This, the fifth installlment is about you and your statistic-hefting party hunting down an assassin who tried to off your Empress, while avoiding him offing you. Spiderweb stress that no previous experience with Avernum is required to jump in, so for those who found themselves nodding sagely at Vince’s decrying of the state of mainstream RPGs, this may be a good excuse to put your bandwidth where your mouth is. Download from Gamers’ Hell or Avernum’s site (which is full of details about the series, as sites tend to be).
