zConnection - Avernum: Escape from the Pit Preview

zConnection: I haven’t played a game like Avernum: Escape from the Pit in far too long. I’ve been too caught up in the flashy and fancy blockbuster titles of our generation to pay much attention to the humble isometric RPG – and that’s a damn shame. The days I’ve spent with Avernum have reminded me of a time when story was carried by imagination and “open-world gameplay” truly meant enjoying the feeling of exploring new and unfamiliar land. It may not look like much – as modern games go, its graphical fidelity is modest at best – but its eloquent descriptions and the depth of conversations you can hold with the denizens of the eponymous subterranean country are truly immersive.

The story is too old to be commented.
