Just Announced - Avadon: The Black Fortress.

We have finally, after six months of hard work, gotten our new fantasy RPG series to the point where we can announce it to the world. It will be Avadon: The Black Fortress.

You can now see the screenshots and first details of the story. In the nine months or so it will take to finish the game, we will also be putting monthly development diaries up. That will give nice little breaks from my ranting.

Hope it looks interesting, and we'll have a bunch more information soon.

  1. Nice logo, and the info on the main site looks promising. In all honesty I hope to see entirely new art for items, etc., but of course the graphics are not the point of your games.

    I look forward to this, and I hope it's a hit for you.

  3. The game looks nice as usual and I can't wait to play it, but I hope you reconsider the logo. To me it is unreadable. Avawn? Avaton? WTF?

  4. Ugh....I hate skill trees. I guess you might make them worthwhile, but man...I hope this isn't a game breaker for me.

  5. Wow, Jeff! I love the style on the interface bar (bottom) and those smooth curves in the skill tree.

  8. "# 800 MhZ processor. Minimum 1.6 GhZ processor recommended."

    I think you meant "800 MHz processor minimum, 1.6 GHz processor recommended."

  9. The new graphics look great and the description on the website looks promising. However, it doesn't answer the most important question of all... Will there be dragons?

  10. Will there be gameplay changes from Avernum beyond the skill trees? Or are the skill trees just a way of organizing old Avernum powers?

  11. Looks awesome, and I look forward to it. Also, thanks for not requiring Mac OS 10.5 :D

  12. "1024x600 screen resolution with 32 bit color."

    I'll take it! Going to EB Games right now and asking what the pre-order bonus is for Avadon: the Black Fortress just so I can see them puzzle.

    Or, even better, know what I'm talking about.

  13. Is this the same thing as Avatar? Certainly looks similar from the logo. Celtic Papyrus, whoo boy.

  16. Congratulations, Jeff. Your timing is impeccable! Hot off the heels of releasing Avernum 6 for the PC, you've already got info out on the next game. Keep cranking them out! As for me, I'm slaving away at my own RPG as we speak.

  17. Hey Jeff,

    If you could make your games lan playable, even if multiplayer was limited to 2 people I think you could market them as games that couples can play together.

    You could have quest lines for the male and female of the couple.

    I know there are MMORPGs out there but I believe there is a hole in the market for games aimed at couples playing together.

    Cheers
    Sam

  18. I am beyond excited, I cannot wait!

    Great name too: simple enough to be memorable and easy to spell, but unique enough be Googleable.

  19. On 'couples playing together':

    The game would need to come with some free matchmaking software to first help you find a mate willing to spend hours in front of two different computers and communicating solely via keyboard.

  21. Each brand has its own section of the great history, LV does, LEVIS does, NIKE does, of course Moncler was not an exception.

    There are so many beautiful clothing and famous clothing brand in this world, of course Moncler shop online . Among those famous clothing brand, how to choose the suitable clothes for yourself? Which brand is the best for you? I think maybe we need spent much time and make a serious thinking.Buying one of these Moncler jackets, via an online retailer is a good idea in many cases. I believe. Most of online retailers offer better deals than many regular stores; they have a lower price than a traditional store. May be many people will have such worry: cheap price product, is very well.

    With the development of our economic level, our standard of living becomes higher and higher, from the pursuit of food and clothing to the pursuit of brand name and fashion. And Moncler of course is the leading example of fashion trend.
