Avernum: Escape From The Pit Patch Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Spiderweb Software recently released an update for Avernum: Escape From the Pit, the company's latest fantasy RPG release. The update brings the game to version 1.0.1 and contains a variety of bug fixes and balance changes. The update is "highly recommended."

Spiderweb Software returns to its epic creation, to tell a story of imprisonment, rebellion, and the struggle for freedom against overwhelming odds. Avernum: Escape From the Pit is the first chapter in an Indie fantasy role-playing saga, the tale of desperate exiles and their battle for survival and a land to call their own.

Avernum: Escape From the Pit features:

  • Epic fantasy adventure in an enormous underworld.
  • Huge outdoors and eighty towns and dungeons.
  • Three separate game-winning quests. Seek safety, escape or revenge. Do just one of them or all three!
  • Unique races and settings make Avernum different from any adventure out there.
  • Dozens of side quests and hundreds of magical artifacts.
  • Rich game system with over 50 spells and battle disciplines and a multitude of beneficial character traits to choose from.
Story:
You have been banished to the underworld, never to see the light of day again.

The surface is ruled by the cruel Emperor Hawthorne, master of the Empire. All of the known lands are subject to his brutal command. Everyone who speaks out, who misbehaves, who doesn’t fit in is cast into the dark, volcanic pits of Avernum, far below the surface. There, you are expected to die, a victim of starvation, horrible monsters, or simple despair.

But not all of the Avernites have surrendered. With magic and steel, they are forging a new nation deep underground. You can join them and fight for safety. Or freedom. Or even, if you dare, revenge on the surface-worlders who tried to destroy you.

Dustforce Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

True PC Gaming has posted a new preview of HitboxTeam's upcoming Dustforce acrobatic platformer. Coming later this month, the game puts players in the role of a cleaner who must use acrobatic skills to clean up the game's levels.

Dustforce is defined by an accurate and honed platforming system that will never slight the player. The main focus of every level is to never stop moving in order to not only to race against the clock, but to clean as much dirt as possible while moving seamlessly to the goal. Walljumping plays a very large part in every level, and some situations will force players to navigate ever-upwards to string a symphony of expertly coordinated jumps with little room for error. While it did take me a little while to accustom myself to the lighting-fast reflexes required to conquer some portions of the game, once mastered, the ability to travel so smoothly is intensely satisfying.

The beautiful thing at work in this game is the balanced level of challenge that Super Meat Boy simply did not have; players are eased into the trials of the game in a challenging, yet comfortable learning curve. Practices in masochism has become far too commonplace in the new age of platformers, and it has been a long time since I haven’t been forced to pull me hair out in a profanity-laced tirade while playing these types games as of late. Creative variety keeps every level interesting as you will find your skills tested in a enjoyable number of ways, and the combat system spices things up a bit while justifying itself as a means to furthering you “Finesse” rating.
