Obviously those games aren't for you. But the graphics aren't any worse than the games I played when I was a kid. I LOVE Geneforge, ESPECIALLY the first three and the fact that you are judging them based on graphics and lack of epic sound rather than story and gameplay mechanics pretty much says it all about you and how utterly invalid your opinion on indie games is. Nobody needs you to 'warn' them. The graphics are clearly visible in the screenshots on the store page.

And even I was shocked by the production values of the older geneforge titles.
Of course this point is not valid for all people and if you don't think it'll bother you, go ahead. Just be warned that it's not just looking and sounding old but bad. Like if you compare the cracking sound noises from Ishar from Silmarils with the nice tunes of the Westwood games like Eye of the Beholder.

I'd already consider myself as minority coping with Avernum EFTP and Avadon, but as I said - if you think you don't have problems with the "production values" of these games, go ahead. Certainly wouldn't stop you in supporting spiderweb.

I am eagerly waiting for their next release!
