(PC Review) Avernum: Escape from the Pit

The Entertainment Depot
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Even if you’ve played the original, Avernum: Escape from the Pit —a remake of a remake—carries itself with such swagger and old-school RPG strength that it’s very much worth playing all over again. The graphical and interface tweaks help bring the venerable series’ origins sufficiently up to speed for modern audiences, but not so much so that it ever loses that comforting retro approach that has helped to keep these games in such high regard.

  • Excerpt: While I enjoyed this game, it is very much designed for fans of this sort of RPG, and doesn’t try to move too far away from what the previous games were. If you are a fan of old school PC RPGs, don’t hesitate to check this out. It is available directly from the Spiderweb Software website and on Steam for both Mac and PC.
  • Pros: The same RPG that fans know and love, great aesthetic and update to the series
  • Cons: Still appears and feels bit dated for new players

  • 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. Recently, Spiderweb Software released a second remake of that humble game, Avernum: Escape From the Pit , and that seemed like a good a time as any for me to finally play through it.

Avernum Escape from the Pit

  • 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.  If you feel nostalgic when you read the term "boss key", then you may just be familiar with Spiderweb Software, creator of the "Exile" series.

  • 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. Это было то время, когда фантастические миры создавались не столько стараниями дизайнеров и магистров 3D-Max, а в гораздо большей степени силой воображения игроков.
