6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments
Spiderweb Software has announced that October marks the fifteenth anniversary of the indie game developer. Known for long running RPG series such as Avernum and Geneforge, the company recently revealed work has begun on an all new title, Avadon: The Black Fortress. To celebrate the anniversary Spiderweb is offering 25% off the price of its game collections and 10% off the price of everything else.
It was fifteen years ago that fledgling Indie game developer Spiderweb Software released its first game out into the wild. This was, by game industry standards, a long time ago. Back then, small developers sold something called "shareware." The World Wide Web barely existed. People took photographs on "film." Cell phones were the size of loaves of bread. Also, dinosaurs ruled the Earth.Check out the links below to learn more.
Yes, the past millennium was a dark and confusing time. And yet, we prevailed, making many fine Retro fantasy role-playing games for Windows and Macintosh. Now we invite all to celebrate our continued survival by offering hefty discounts on the fruits of our labors. For the whole month of October, all collections of our games are 25% off, and everything else we sell is 10% off. CDs containing three or five deep, full-length RPGs, already sold at a discount, are now even cheaper!
Whether you need a big pile of distractions from the recession and the cold and dark of winter, or you need a nice CD to give as a gift to a gamer friend, or you just like collecting shiny discs, we are eager to help.
And here's hoping for another fifteen years. With any luck, our 30th birthday e-mail will be sent out from inside our Pleasure Pod and will celebrate flying cars and the Cure For Death.
