Indie game maker Jeff Vogel passed along new information on Spiderweb Software's newest RPG title, Avernum 3. As with the previous games in the Avernum series, this third one is largely a re-creation of the previous third title in the earlier Exile series. With an even more massive world to explore, better graphics and an improved GUI it should keep old-school RPG fans entertained for many an hour. Here's an excerpt from the PR with more details on this Mac-first title:

Avernum 3 is a massive and open-ended game. You can save the world or work
as a merchant. You can buy a house or go on one of many side adventures. You
can hurry to save the cities, or sit back and watch them crumble. Whatever
you choose, Avernum 3 promises a massive and engaging adventure which will
gladly absorb all the hours you can spare.

Experience with Avernum or Avernum 2 is completely unnecessary to enjoy
Avernum 3. Minimum system requirements: 120 MhZ Windows 95 or later or
PowerPC Macintosh, 12 MB free RAM, 20 MB hard drive space, 800x600 screen
resolution, 16 bit color. Avernum 3 is $25, or $32 with the hint book.
Avernum 3 will be released in Spring, 2002 for Macintosh and Summer 2002 for

Visit the Spiderweb site for screen shots and more details on this title. While Spring 2002 may seem a while away, Vogel has crafted many an addictive time-sink to while away the hours -- plenty of time to play through Avernum 1 and 2, if you haven't done so already.
