Avernum: Escape From The Pit Review | Deeper Underground

Platforms: PC (reviewed) | Mac | iPad

Developer: Spiderweb Software

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. Jeff Vogel's Exile series released back in the late 1980s, and after spending the next two decades remaking them (and bringing us the superb Avadon: The Black Fortress), this indie pioneer has combined the first three Avernum titles into a single package.

Avernum: Escape From The Pit harks back to the Infinity Engine days; an isometric RPG powered by story, exploration and imagination. We're home.
