Spiderweb Software's Fifteenth Birthday Sale!

(This is the official press release for our fifteenth birthday sale. I'm posting it here because it's funny. Also, shameless self-promotion and all that.)

Spiderweb Software's Fifteenth Birthday Sale!

It was fifteen years ago that fledgling Indie game developer Spiderweb Software released its first game out into the wild. This was, by game industry standards, a long time ago. Back then, small developers sold something called "shareware." The World Wide Web barely existed. People took photographs on "film." Cell phones were the size of loaves of bread. Also, dinosaurs ruled the Earth.

Yes,  the past millennium was a dark and confusing time. And yet, we prevailed, making many fine Retro fantasy role-playing games for Windows and Macintosh. And now we invite you to celebrate our continued survival by offering hefty discounts on the fruits of our labors. For the whole month of October, all collections of our games are 25% off, and everything else we sell is 10% off. CDs containing three or five deep, full-length RPGs, already sold at a discount, are now even cheaper!

So, whether you need a big pile of distractions from the recession and the cold, dark of winter, or you need a nice CD to give as a gift to a gamer friend, or you just like collecting shiny discs, we are eager to help.

Not convinced? Try out one of our huge, free demos.

And here's hoping for another fifteen years. With any luck, our 30th birthday e-mail will be sent out from inside our Pleasure Pod and will celebrate flying cars and the Cure For Death.


  1. Congrats on reaching 15 years.... think I have bought a couple of Exiles, all of Avernum and most of GeneForge. Have to thank you for multiple multiple hours exploring caves and looking out for smart spiders.

  2. Stupid question, possibly:
    The prices indicated in the store are post-discount? (the non-collection prices seem a little too "round" for this to be so)

  3. While I certainly appreciate your sale, I don't think I can take advantage of it because I already own almost all of your games. Alas.

  5. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  6. I don't know what frightens me more: the fact that Spiderweb is 15 years old or that I have been playing your games all that time.

  7. Hey Jeff, any plans to novelize a game or storyline relating to a game? Perhaps the possibility of teaming up with an artist and putting out a graphic novel?

  8. Jeff, I hate to tell you what you already know, but you REALLY need to take a class in marketing!
    If you have a sale on you should put a big, pretty graphic on the front page of your site saying "SALE" rather than a tiny paragraph many people will skip.

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. This sale finally pushed me into buying the Avernum Trilogy. I discovered that game when I was about 7 and I've always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to buy it since...

  11. I agree with the sentiment above. If there's one thing I gleaned from this post about how you and your company have survived fifteen years in the cut-throat, low-margin business of independent niche game design, it's that you clearly don't know how to sell your games.

  12. Congratulations on 15 fantastic years Jeff. Loved your games since the first one came out. I hope there's many more great games left in you just waiting to be created.

  13. 15 years? Wow, I was 2 when you started. Your first game I played was Avernum 1, and at age nine, it seemed like the greatest thing in the world. Perhaps with this sale I'll actually buy the second avernum trilogy, instead of playing the heck out of the amazing demos.

    You're awesome, keep up the good work.

  14. Bought 2nd trilogy. Shipping all the way to good ol' New Zealand. Happy bday Spiderweb!

  15. I'm terribly sory asking this kind of thing here, but do you guys still looking for a graphic artists? My gilfriend is one, she sent an email through to the address on Spiderweb Software website and didn't recieve an answer. Maybe you didn't like her graphics, maybe you don't need it, or maybe there is some kind of tech problem. Please let us know. Thanks and happy birthday ^_^
    Keep up with great games!!!
