Geneforge - Pay what you want for the Saga

by Dhruin, 13:01

IndieGameStand is offering the entire Geneforge Saga for whatever amount you want (suggested payment is $10 but is not mandatory). I've not used this site before but apparently you can redeem the codes on either GOG or Steam. 17 hours to go as I type.

Geneforge - Indie Royale Bundle

by Dhruin, 22:51

The latest Indie Royale bundle features all five of Spiderweb's Geneforge saga for RPG fans - plus Unepic, which is well worth a look on its own. The current minimum price as I type is $5.60, which is outstanding value even if you don't count the other games in the deal.

Geneforge - Collection on GOG

by Aries100, 23:06

GOG has the Geneforge Collection (Geneforge 1-5) on sale for 9.99 $ for the next 7 days. After that, the price will be $14.99.

The quote:

The Geneforge Saga is an epic RPG that gives you tremendous freedom and non-linear gameplay as you determine the fate of a world. Take on the role of either a Shaper, who commands an army of powerful creations, or a Rebel fighting against everything the Shapers stand for. If you prefer to sling magic at your enemies, the Sorceress will be a perfect choice with her vast array of debilitating spells and hexes. Play a free-willed Servile, regain your freedom, and fight the Shapers’ hegemony with your own army. Engage in diplomacy as you work for various factions that rule the world of Geneforge or grind the factions under your heel and take power for yourself.

Geneforge - Collection on Steam

by Dhruin, 09:00

The Geneforge Saga - all the games from 1 through 5 - are now available as a pack from Steam for the low price of $15.99 (which is 20% off the ongoing Steam list price). As an unabashed Spideweb fan, this is an excellent deal and Geneforge 1, 4 and 5 in particular are tremendous games.

Thanks, TheGameSquid!

Geneforge - Reflections @ Scorpia's Lair

by Dhruin, 00:41

With the Geneforge series now wrapped up, Scorpia reflects on Jeff's comments that Geneforge hasn't been as poular as his other games:

The basis of Geneforge is a hybrid of science and fantasy. The Shapers do with magic what we do with technology: manipulate genetic material.

This mix is nothing new. SF and fantasy have been combined before in the Might & Magic series from the beginning, and in the later Wizardry games, to give two examples. It didn’t really work too well in those, and it doesn’t work well here, either.

For all the talk about research, Shaper labs and equipment, experiment notes, machinery, and so on, what really happens? You just wave your hand, and poof! a creation appears.

The only difference between making a creation in Geneforge and summoning a creature in a typical RPG is that the creations hang around until dead or re-absorbed. It’s almost like having a band of familiars traveling with you.

We have upgraded Geneforge for the Macintosh to v1.2. This version is now fully Universal and in 32 bit color, so it will run well on all of the newer Macs.
