RPG's Remake Is Old School Cool

GIN

  • Excerpt: Welcome Time Waaasiiit a second...this isn't a Time Waster column, this is Avernum: Escape from the Pit. What exactly is Avernum: Escape from the Pit? It's probably one of the best hidden gems in indie gaming. Avernum: Escape from the Pit isn't exactly a whole new game.

Review: Avernum - Escape From The Pit (PC)

Diehard GameFAN
25 July 2012
  • Summary: In a nutshell Avernum Escape from the Pit belongs in the nineties. There was no need for the game to be remade a second time just because the first remake was having issues running under current Windows 7 or the latest Mac OS. There are ways around that via Virtual PC programs.

  • Excerpt: Way back in 1995, Spiderweb Software released its first game, a downloadable RPG called Exile: Escape From the Pit . I played the free demo for that game back then and enjoyed it, but never got a chance to play through the full game.

  • Excerpt: Ah, 90's PC gaming. A golden age of video game development where the only limits were technical in nature, and new shareware releases by budding developers were the advertising lifeblood of the industry.

  • Excerpt: Эх, молодость! Тогда и трава была зеленее и солнце ярче. И пусть 20 лет назад в компьютерных играх небесное светило только-только училось отбрасывать аляповатые пятнистые тени, а озера чаще всего имели квадратную береговую линию.
