Avernum: Escape from the Pit is a new RPG from indie developer Spiderweb Software, and for many of you that name alone is more than enough information. Spiderweb specializes in old school RPGs from the golden days of classics like Baldur’s Gate. Amongst their past hits are Avadon: The Black Fortress, the Geneforge series and, most importantly, the Exile series, which was remade into the Avernum series and remade again for the game this very review is focusing on. Spiderweb games are always focused on gameplay and world building first, and other things like graphics and UI tend to get shifted to the side. Fortunately for more casual RPG fans, Spiderweb took a big step towards making their games a little more user friendly and accessible in Avadon, and Avernum is another step in the right direction.
