Avernum: Escape From the Pit Announced

Jeff Vogel decided it was time for a remake and officially announced Avernum: Escape From the Pit.
If you wonder why, here's his latest blog entry explaining it. There's also a FAQ.

This is the second time that we have rewritten the Exile/Avernum trilogy, a move that is full of all sorts of questionable integrity. I am very nervous about announcing this title for exactly that reason, even though we have very, VERY good reasons to do a serious, polished rewrite of this game. Because Avernum has such a large and passionate fanbase, we have already put up an Avernum: Escape From the Pit FAQ to answer many of the questions that will be coming up. Such as, Why?

Short answer: Because the old version doesn't run on new machines anymore. Also, the iPad.

Longer answer. Look at this screenshot from Avernum:
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://www.avernum.com/images/avernumold/beingbad.JPG">
Ghhhhahhhhh! Make it go away! Make it go AWAYYYYYYYY!

I mean, seriously.
Agreed, the screenshot looks hideous. It was about time someone would upgrade the graphics. The game is scheduled for Q4 2011 (Mac) and Q1 2012 (PC and iPad).
