Spiderweb Software announced today the release of Avernum 5 for the Macintosh, the latest game in the award-winning Avernum series.
Avernum 5 is set in the world of Avernum, an enormous series of caves far under the surface of the world. Explore this enormous, alien environment, meet multitudes of interesting characters, and rampage through many unique dungeons and hostile cities.
The surface world is ruled by the Empire. Its power is absolute. Its control is unchallenged. And, as a soldier of the Empire, you have a good, comfortable life ahead of you. But then a rebel named Dorikas tried to assassinate the Emperor, and everything went wrong for you.
The villain fled somewhere into Avernum, an underworld nation of eccentrics, misfits, and barely civilized monsters, most of whom hate the Empire. And that is where you are going. You must find Dorikas, while dealing with spies, betrayal, and assassins at every turn.
The enemy is waiting for you. You will only survive his attention with the help of these strange cave dwellers. If, of course, they don’t kill you first.
Avernum 5 is the newest game in the long-running Avernum series. Explore a gigantic world, with hundreds of quests, multitudes of side dungeons, and many hours of adventure. Avernum 5 has a fascinating storyline, full of betrayal, mystery, and unexpected turns. The game features clever enemies and dozens of interesting scripted encounters. Learn over 50 spells and battle disciplines. Hunt for hundreds of magical items, or find the materials to craft new, unique equipment.
