RPGDot Feature: Avernum 4 Review

by Dhruin, 08:53
We take a look at Spiderweb's latest Avernum epic:
If you are unfamiliar with the series, Avernum is an underground world of tunnels and caverns underneath an arrogant and nameless Empire on the surface. Over many years, the Empire has banished criminals and dissidents to this sub-world, to eke out a harsh existence in the sunless caverns. Over time, these exiles have built an entire culture with towns and settlements, fungi farms and mines - even trade with the surface. But it's a dangerous and unforgiving world full of monsters and battles with bandits and other races, such as hostile factions of the cat-like Nephilim, the lizard-like Slith and more.
If you haven't played one of Spiderweb's games before, this is a great place to start. Read on for the entire review, here.

Avernum 4: Review & Interview @ GamerDad

by Dhruin, 01:48
GamerDad has posted a review of Avernum 4 with a score of 4.5, as well as an interview with Jeff Vogel with a family/kids slant as you'd probably expect:
GamerDad: You are viewed as a milestone success in independent gaming. What would you like to see kids get out of gaming in the future that they are not getting from it today?

Jeff Vogel: I think games are a marvelous leisure activity. I think that children, like every other human, deserve leisure. I think games today are just fine.

Except for one thing I'd like to add. I think that massively multiplayer online role-playing games are some of the most marvelous educational games ever made. I think the way they teach children to type, communicate, and work as a team is truly marvelous.
Thanks Mike!
