Avernum 2 Available
4:49 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

With just a week to go before Christmas, another great Mac title has been released in Spiderweb Software's RPG sequel (and remake), Avernum 2. As with most all of the games from Jeff Vogel, Avernum 2 is Mac-first, with a Windows version due out in a few months. The story is a deeper version of the Exile II game, though it uses the same modified engine as the original Avernum. Here's a clip from the site with more info:

Avernum 2 is the sequel to the hit retro-rpg Avernum. Avernum 2, like its predecessor, is a classic fantasy role-playing game, designed for anyone who wants a huge game with a fascinating plot and who longs for the good old days of Ultima and Wizardry. It features beautiful 3-D, 16-bit graphics, including drawings by well-known fantasy illustrator, Phil Foglio, a massive storyline with three different game-winning quests (complete one or two of them, or even all three), and addicting gameplay.


Experience with Avernum is completely unnecessary to enjoy Avernum 2. Minimum system requirements: Windows 95 or later or PowerPC Macintosh, 12 MB free RAM, 20 MB hard drive space, 800x600 screen resolution. Highly recommended: 16 bit color, minimum 120 MhZ Processor. Avernum 2 is$25, or $32 with the hint book.

For those without the latest-and-greatest hardware, Avernum 2 should run very well on most PPC setups. Head over to Macgamefiles now to download the demo.
