Avernum Review
12:16 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GamesDomain has posted a new review of Spiderweb Software's latest RPG, Avernum. It's good to see this cross-platform company get a little recognition on the PC side of the fence. GD takes a balanced look at the game, noting that while it may not have the most high-tech visuals, it more than makes up for this in depth and strength of storyline. Here's a clip from the review:

The game's author clearly has a good creative streak and a good
sense of humour; the mad talking spiders (all called "Spider") are testament
to that. The good part is that while you will crawl through many areas and
dungeons, you don't feel dragged by the nose through them. You'll have to
locate secret doors, find ways to dispel magic barriers, and experiment with
the odd wheel or lever, but nothing overly cryptic.
Check out the rest of the in-depth review for much more on Avernum. If you've never tried this remake of the classic Exile: Escape from the Pit, be sure to download the demo.
