First time on sale, and the cheapest any Spiderweb game has ever been. If you've had your eye on this, now is the time to pick it up.

Get it boys and girls, this game is a steal at that price! Such an awesome classic CRPG feel in the vein of Ultima! Get the other ones too!

Spiderweb, release more ports. Already have Avadon, Avernum: Escape from the Pit, and this one, Avernum 6... Although I hadn't actually had time to play A6 yet, them Kemco short short RPGs took up my time. But release more and I will get.

I prefer Alphadia 2's gameplay and exploration, but Symphony of the Origin was a short 10 hourish affair, which was just right for me.

By the way, if you are interested in Ultima-style gameplay, get Avadon, Avernum: Escape from the Pit, and Avernum 6 too. I own all three and played the first two. Great and will hold attention through, but now suddenly so many good games out after Christmas 2012, no time to start on A6 yet...

Played for 15 minutes. It's amazing! Thanks for the tip! Any chance they will release a version for the iPhone?

I think zero chance of an iPhone port, because the Spiderweb games are basically Mac and PC ports, which is why the text is tiny compared to iOS native games. The best place to ask would be the Spiderweb forums, which oddly seems to be down at the moment...

I am not the developer.

Having followed Spiderweb since the mid-late 90's, I wish the dev would do just one thing different...stop giving every game a title beginning with the letter A! It really confuses me...I forget which series is which...

Except for Avadon which went free once.
I like Avadon a lot, and am probably gonna go ahead and grab this cause it looks pretty similar...
Do the games pretty much play the same? Obviously story is gonna change between titles but from the screens I can't tell how the Avadon and Avernum series differ... Anyone?
