‘ave you heard? Vintage RPG remake Avernum 3 released, with free demo too

Back, back, back when we are all a lot clearer on what 'indie game' really meant, there was a series of roleplaying games from Jeff Vogel's teeny-tiny studio Spiderweb Software. They were 2D, they were resolutely singleplayer, they offered massive freedom of movement and character development and... well, I keep using the past tense, but Spiderweb have kept on fighting their good fight since 1995.…

Avernum – Escape From The Pit review

Spiderweb Software have one intention: to keep making 90s-style RPGs, and to keep making them good. Avernum: Escape From The Pit is their latest, technically the seventh game in the Avernum series (although presented with a fresh start), the 20th game from the developers, and the first of their games I've played.

Role On: Avernum: Escape From the Pit

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…
