Geneforge 4 Wins Gametunnel Indie Award
8:24 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Gametunnel's March Indie Game Roundup rated ten shareware titles, giving the third place Silver Award to Spiderweb Software's Geneforge 4: Rebellion. The latest in the popular roleplaying series focuses on the war between Shapers and Rebels, giving players the chance to choose sides and change the course of history.

It’s really cliché, but they don’t make RPGs like this anymore in the retail PC gaming world. Rebellion continues the saga of the Geneforge series, except that this time – as the name implies – players assume the role of a rebel operative instead of an “evil” Shaper. Of course, in true role-playing fashion, Geneforge 4 doesn’t lock you into this position; you can change sides if you want and switch things up entirely. When combined with the fact that how you interact with NPCs will affect gameplay elements, Rebellion really shines in letting players determine how the story will unfold. RPG-lite players need not apply here as Geneforge 4 is text-heavy - you need to be ready to read a lot. On the downside, the graphics for Rebellion are about par for the series, which means they aren’t great. There’s also a number of minor interface issues that I wish would be worked out to streamline things a bit. Despite these minor issues, if you’re an RPG fan or have liked previous titles in this series, Geneforge 4 is definitely worth checking out.
