    Hmm, OK well we will see. Odd they have completely disappeared from KS and all forums for at least 3 months.

    I hope they make another game. The devs may not be very communicative, but the game was fun and they could hopefull build upon it in a sequel or whatever.

    Yes I have played a bit and it is fun and had a unique style. Based on how quiet they were my impression is it didn't sell much but I'm speculating. If it did t cover losses then I doubt another is coming. Surprised they are actually shipping the physical goods since I figured they dissapeared due to lack of sales.

    Main reason they've probably disappeared is because they can't into marketing/PR. Seriously, this thing wasn't even marketed properly. It probably would have done much better on the codex/RPGwatch kind of crowd than it has.

    If you don't care about the story and writing and just play it for having four custom made dudes/dudettes roaming the world, killing shit, this should be fun.

    The combat isn't amazing but the fun part is that debuffs can be really helpful. Use them correctly and you will be sure to win more difficult encounters.

    Get the "cone of cold" spell as soon as you can and you won't have to worry about any difficulty. Actually, if you enjoy suspens, you shoud get it as late as possible.

    The game is 70% off on Steam right now. Is it worth that price?

    Wonder if the devs lost money and plan anything else. Hope they have plans for more...

    Who knows. Even when they were active and doing post launch fixes, they were quiet.

    Can anyone play this on a crappy laptop? I thought it looked low-spec and would make a nice game to play on the go but in the overworld it runs really slow.

    If you stripped it down to 90% of its combat, would Avernum be worth $5? Ask yourself this and you'll get your answer.

    Didn't played, but It seems to have less shitty combat though, there are proper AoE spells for example, while Avernum combat is pure garbage.
