Geneforge 5 Development Update
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a recent forum post Spiderweb Software's Jeff Vogel revealed some new information about the upcoming Geneforge 5. The final game in the RPG saga will allow players to bring the war between Shapers and Rebellion to an end. G5 will feature five different factions, six character classes, and a complex storyline.

The storyline and game structure will be much closer to Geneforge 1 and 2. You will wander around and interact with five (FIVE!) different factions. Eventually, you can choose one to fight for. There are all of the options you probably predicted from the previous games, and others that might take you by surprise.

You will start, as usual, as a lone Shaper/lifecrafter. You will be able to choose to be either a Shaper character (the old three choices) or as one of the six different rebel classes. Yes, I am putting in the "missing" sixth character class from the rebel side.

The spell system will be mostly the same, but I am completely reworking how buffs work to make them more interesting and player friendly. I'll go into this more in later months. Suffice it to say for now that the "OK, this fight is tough, I'll put 12 buffs on every character. Zzzz." system had to go.
Vogel is working toward a November release for the Mac version of Geneforge 5. Read the rest of his comments at the link provided below.
