Default Re: Avernum, Crystal Souls v1.5 UPDATE

I played exile in the past (from a multi game CD lying around in the house of an ex GF of mine,( it was already outdated then and this was like 8 years ago), when she did homework I was playing the game in the same room) When we went less to her parents (when she went to higher schooling too) and later when we broke up I lost track of the game (I don't think I came very far.

Anyway enough of the background story:

Would it be a game to start playing again now or would I just get annoyed at the graphics (which usually don't bother me much really) or the gameplay and story (very important these last 2)

I imagine you would like it. It was a while since I tried it, but I liked it. Graphics are no more outdated then dom3

I can't speak for the 'avernum' update but Exile III is one of the best rpgs of all time imo.

Well it's just the way it is Sombre.. my feeling clouded my mind then... now I'm seeing it clearly. (And to quote myself "I'm not a nice guy")

Yeah I was looking around for exile and read that avernum 1-3 are remakes of the exile games. I think I'll try those a bit.. unless someone tells me a lot was lost in translation...

I've tried avernum 5, it is good but really hard : you have almost no explication about the game in the manual, but you have complete solution and cheat codes ! It is a bit linear, you can't really choose were to go, and if you want to get the plot, you'll have to read tons of text.

Is this still being worked on? I would love to see a working empire with garzhad as the anti-thesis to erika instead of hawthorne though.

This looks to be incredible though

I currently have no plans to do an 'empire' nation to oppose this one.

I will still update this and any of my mods when the mood takes me, or if something drastically needs to be done.

Give it a go, Zebion, and let me know what you think. I'm pretty good at fixing problems people bring to me, even adding stuff if they have very good ideas.
