Avernum: Escape From the Pit - Preview @ TheBitFix
A site called TheBitFix has a hands-on preview of Avernum: Escape the Pit, although it probably won't tell experienced RPGers anything new:
There’s a remake of the original Avernum in the works called Avernum: Escape from the Pit, featuring an overhaul of graphics, gameplay, and compatibility. I got lucky enough to check it out about a month early. And, if you’re reading this, you got lucky enough to stumble on this preview. Unfortunately, I haven’t played the original Avernum, so I can’t compare the two. But I will be able to give you a nice little play-by-play description of my experience with Avernum. Maybe it will help you decide whether or not you want to pick it up yourself, if you’re into an RPG with these kind of mechanics. It’s certainly gonna be cheap enough.
