Spiderweb Software today announced the Mac-first release of Geneforge, their latest role-playing game "with a twist." Gamers familiar with the company's Exile or Avernum series of RPGs will recognize Geneforge immediately, though this is anything but your standard RPG. Geneforge puts you in the role of a Shaper, with powerful magic to create your own minions for protection or to go on the offensive.
While the game is open-ended, there is an intriguing story to move you along. Here's an excerpt from the Geneforge page:
If you need a servant, you simply create it, and it will gladly die for you.A demo of Geneforge is now available to give you a taste of how the game plays. Also, be sure to read through IMG's recent preview of the game. Geneforge needs at least Mac OS 8.1 with 30 MB of RAM, and is fully compatible with Mac OS X.
But now the secrets of your people are at risk. Someone dares to try to steal the power of the Shapers and take it for his own. He has committed the ultimate crime: he has captured you, and he will do anything to get you to surrender your secrets.
He would use the power of the Shapers to remake the world. The question is a simple one. Will you fight him? Or join him?
Head over now to Macgamefiles to start the 11MB download, and also check out the official Geneforge page for more information or to place an order for the full version. At $25, it's sure to please the old-school RPG gamer in your family.
