If you didn't pick up Avernum in the Spiderweb RPG bundle GOG were running a couple of months back, now might be the chance. It's gone slightly cheaper than this in the past, but £3.19 is still a cracking discounted price for Avernum, especially if you like your isometric, old-school RPGs.

Do you remember the days when RPGs didn't rely on flashy engines and hype campaigns? When they overcame their graphical limitations and lack of voice acting with exceptional storytelling and dialogue; making every word, conversation and description count for something? When combat revolved around cerebral tactics and planning rather than third person swordplay?
We remember... and so does Spiderweb Software.
