Avernum 6 Reviewed

ATPM has published a new review of Spiderweb Software's Avernum 6. The game is set in the world of Avernum, an enormous series of caves far below the surface of the world. It wraps up loose plot threads from previous games and reveals the final fate of the underground realm and its popular characters. IndieRPGs gave the game a rating of "Very Nice."

From the review:

Avernum is a huge underground world that was once used as a penal colony by the Empire. Over time, the colony gained independence and other settlers moved in. Avernum had its share of prosperous, peaceful times and was also ravaged by wars with other species.

The latest catastrophe involves a disease that destroys the mushroom used as the main diet of people and beasts alike. Amid the catastrophe, you, represented by four lowly guards at a food depot, get ordered to various tasks, such as the ridding of rats in the bowel of the depot and hunting goblins in an abandoned mine.

Along the way, you gain magical powers, learn how to teleport, and more. One thing leads to another, and before you know it you are on your way to solving the big mystery of how the mushroom disease came about. If you choose to, that is, as there are many side stories you can pursue. The place is big, and there are many things to do; you can easily spend hours with the game.
