You Could Play Avadon: The Black Fortress

By Jim Rossignol on May 4th, 2011.

Where would we be without wizards?
Because there’s a demo. Spiderweb Software’s Olden Skool CRPG is out now, and you can unlock the full game from the demo, I believe. Spiderweb have been going for quite some time now and, thanks to the pitiless gaze of their founder, Jeff Vogel, have never deviated from their mission. If Avadon tickles your interest them you should totally browse through their other games. There’s a fair few fantasy adventures to be had in there.

Avernum VI Demo: Aver Banana!

By Kieron Gillen on March 5th, 2010.

AVER BANANA!

That subject line makes no sense, but bear with me. It’s early and I’m tired. If you’re coming to Avernum now, of course, you’re not early. You’re late. In fact, as late as it’s possible to be. Except not too late. And… start again. Shorter sentences. Control. Avernum VI released. Demo available. Final part in Avernum series. Long-running, successful niche-targeting indie-RPGs.

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).
