Avernum 6 - Review @ IndieRPG.com

by Dhruin, 2010-03-26 20:05:01

I'm going to introduce IndieRPGs.com by way of their Avernum 6 review.  Craig Stern, the developer of the Telepath RPG series, dropped us a line to point out his new indie RPG review site.

The score for Avernum 6 is 4/5, with the writing praised but aspects like the party portraits and animations criticised.  Here's a snip:

The writing in Avernum 6 is truly the game’s backbone, and it ranges from competent to quite good.

Though Jeff Vogel’s characterizations occasionally lack consistency, he has a way with words, and his curmudgeonly narrative voice provided me with chuckles on more than a few occasions. You’ll spend a lot of time exploring, talking to people, and searching things. The dialog and descriptions you get of the game world will arguably provide most of your moment-to-moment entertainment value while playing, so it’s good that Vogel has taken the time to do this well.
