Spiderweb Hosts a Sale
10:14 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Old-school RPG fans rejoice! Spiderweb Software has announced a major sale for all their major titles. During the month of November, their Avernum series, Nethergate, the Exile series, Homeland, Lost Souls, and Ocean Bound will be selling for 10% off their usual prices.


For those unfamiliar with the name, Spiderweb is an independent software maker that concentrates mainly on old-school style RPGs. Any fan of older RPGs such as the Ultima series or Legacy of the Ancients should find their works instantly familiar. Some of their work, including the Avernum series, has garnered more than a little attention from hardcore gaming sites.


Why the sudden sale? Here's their explanation:

The Seattle weather is gray, cold, and moist. This should make us happy, since it makes all of the outdoors like the basement in which we write our games. The holiday season is coming, with promises of Thanksgiving turkey and eating all of the Halloween candy we meant to give to the kids. We should be in a great mood.


But we’re not. Why? Because our sales always hit the floor in November. We have no idea why this happens. But it does, every year, like clockwork. And we need to do something to cheer ourselves up.


And what is more fun than a sale?

Most of Spiderweb's titles come with free demos as well, so feel free to try before you buy. For more information on their titles as well as the sale, be sure to check out their official site.
