IMG Reviews Avernum 6, Interviews Jeff Vogel

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Avernum 6 from Spiderweb Software. The final game in the award-winning RPG series wraps up loose plot threads from previous games, and reveals the final fate of the underground realm and its popular characters.

IMG has also released an interview with Avernum creator, and Spiderweb founder, Jeff Vogel, about the end of the series and the beginning of work on a new title, Avadon: The Black Fortress.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

Avernum 6 (A6) is a step above. In the previous games in the series, the plots have continued, but they haven't really resolved much of the Empire vs. Avernum tension that the first three games set up nicely. As a result, it's been more of a straightforward "we know the enemy, kill them!" than the original trilogy. Thankfully, this entry focuses entirely on the conclusion of the series, and ends a lot of the plot threads that hadn't yet been resolved. For example, X, one of the overpowered wizards of the series, had been developing the ultimate magic spell for ages. In Avernum 6, you can aid him in completing it.
A snippet from the interview:
FP: What does it feel like to move into creating a new world? After spending so much time on Exile/Avernum, it's got to be at least a little daunting.

JV: It's been a huge amount of work. Creating a new world, the nations, the history, the culture, all that stuff take a lot of thought. Add to that the new game engine, the new system, redoing all the graphics, and Avadon: The Black Fortress has been a big job. Fun, but draining.
