Spiderweb Talks Blades of Avernum
11:21 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
IGN's RPG Vault has recently posted a feature looking at Spiderweb Software and Blades of Avernum, one of their most recent titles. Described as an RPG system and including an editor as well as several pre-made adventures, Blades is the 4th installment in the popular Avernum series.
One of the topics touched on is the original incarnation of Blades of Avernum, originally titled Blades of Exile.
The original Blades of Exile system was my very first effort to create something for other people to use. As a result, while I was proud that I created something that worked at all, it had a lot of weaknesses and wasn't really that versatile. In fact, it could be downright painful. I wanted to use everything I had learned in the intervening years to make a system that could create wild hack and slash adventures, intricate plot-heavy stories, and everything in-between.Various aspects of the development process are also discussed, including the timeline, the technology behind the engine, and challenges faced during the project.
