Any old spider web exile&avernum fans?

Hey,

I have no idea about Avadon I dont know if I have time to play but I just bought immediately when I saw SPIDERWEB!!!

After all these years, Exile & Avernum series , It is good to see a game in steam. I was 9 or 10 when I first played exile, was looking directly to monitor and understand nothing

It's great to have you back

I have known the spiderweb games for a long time never really got into them until Avadon. Really like this game. I'll wait with playing Avernum until the remakes. I'll hope they also come to steam.

I have played most spiderweb games. Definitely a delight to play always. Amazing how far good game design and interesting writing can take a game. Will definitely pick up Avadon this weekend.

I'm excited that Avadon is on Steam.

I remember playing Avernum 3's demo a real long time ago (2003?). I remember loving it for it's unique story and style. I never bought it, because the price was too much, and I was younger back then and couldn't afford nice things.

I don't know if I'll have the patience to play these types of games. But I have nothing but fond memories.

I'll probably pick up a demo or buy it on sale. And if it's as my memory remembers, I'll definitely buy the older games. (If they're on Steam.)

Similar experience here... it was impossible to buy this game for me, a teenager living in Europe with no credit card in the family. But the demos were always huge, and my English wasn't that good so it took me ages to get through the demos anyway.

A huge fan of the old exile games, used to play them so much even though I only had the shareware versions. The depth was amazing and few games can top it yet have such simple mechanics and UI.

Btw will I like this game if I liked the old exile games? looking to buy this one just because it's spiderweb who made it

Hm, I still haven't beaten Exile 3, now that I think about it. I wonder if it'll run on my phone?

A fan since the original with the horribly awesome graphics.

I insta-bought Avadon after having watched a gameplay video and hearing some of those old, familiar sound effects in it.
Excited for Avernum: Escape from the Pit to come out on Steam.

Yes! I first played the original Exile games as a kid after stumbling across the demos on a Mac shareware disc. I remember anxiously waiting for the games to arrive by snail mail after sending in a mail-order form stuffed with some $5 and $1 bills and a few quarters (the only form of payment I had at the time).

I still remember exploring the Honeycomb in Exile, the "oh man, this really is a one-way trip, isn't it?" feeling of descending to the Vahnatai lands in Exile 2, and the "holy crap!" moment of first reaching the surface in Exile 3 (and again when I played the Avernum remakes later on). Good times.

I can't even remember how many times I played through the huge "demos" of Exile I-III as a kid. I cut my RPG eyeteeth on Spiderweb games.
