Avadon 2 old school-style RPG set for Oct. 30 release
Spiderweb Software has announced the official release date for its new role playing game for Mac and Windows, Avadon 2: The Corruption. It's coming on October 30th, and will be available directly from Spiderweb and other online stores.
Spiderweb specializes in making traditional turn-based role playing adventure games in the spirit of classic computer RPG's like Ultima. The games use an isometric (three-quarters) perspective and incorporate dozens and dozens of hours of gameplay as you go on major quests and side missions.
In Avadon 2: The Corruption, you serve the keep of Avadon, exploring the land in one of five five different character classes, each with unique spells and abilities. You uncover the histories of Avadon and the lands of Lynaeus as you explore, and how you comport yourself - the decisions you make, the influence you have over what happens in the game - affects its outcome. While this is the second installment of the Avadon series, you don't need to know what happened in the original game to play this one.
The Mac and Windows versions will be released on October 30, 2013, but an iPad version is also in the works and is expected in early 2014.
