Spiderweb: Geneforge 5, Universal Updates, A New Series
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Spiderweb Software has issued a new company newsletter detailing recent releases, updates, and upcoming projects for the game developer. The release of Geneforge 5: Overthrow brings the RPG saga to a close, deciding the winner in the war between Shapers and Rebels. For those with Intel macs who haven't started the series, Spiderweb is also working to develop universal versions of the first three Geneforge titles. Future projects include a conclusion for another RPG series and the launch of an entirely new one.

Geneforge 5: Overthrow Released:
It has been a long road. From the forgotten shores of Sucia island to a secret rebellion brewing in the southern mountains to a cataclysmic war ravaging all of the known lands. At last, the time has come. Someone must win this war. It will be up to you to decide who. The Geneforge Saga comes to a close.
Geneforge 5: Overthrow is set in the land of the Shapers, a secretive sect of wizards with the ability to create new life to serve them. Then their servants rebelled, and their whole world slid into ruin. Play a lone traveler in this strange land and fight to bring an end to this war. End the reign of the Shapers. Or, if you choose, join them and destroy the rebels once and for all.
Geneforge 5: Overthrow has a huge, open storyline. You can choose to serve one of five different factions, each of which has its own path to bring the war to an end. There are dozens of different endings and paths to victory. Help the rebels or fight them. Kill your opponents or use stealth and diplomacy. Focus on the storyline or simply seek wealth and carnage. No matter how you play, Geneforge 5 offers an epic adventure with plenty of replay value.

Geneforge 1-3 Universal Versions on the Way:
We have some more good news for users of Intel Macintoshes. We are working on making Universal, Intel-native versions of the first three games in the Geneforge series. Public beta testing of Universal Geneforge has begun. Watch the Geneforge 2 and Geneforge 3 pages to see when the new Mac versions are available.

What Else Are We Working On?
We are taking baby steps toward designing our next two games. One of them will bring our oldest and most popular series to a smashing conclusion. Literally. And the other will be the beginning of a completely new series. We'll say more in upcoming issues of the newsletter.
