avernumThe long running fantasy RPG series, Avernum, will be getting its final episode soon as indie developers Spiderweb Software will be releasing soon the sixth game, Avernum 6. Both for the fans of the franchise, but also for those who love crawling the dungeons with varied characters, Avernum 6 promises to be a nice addition!

Avernum is a world underground. It is a nation of people living in an enormous warren of tunnels and caverns, far below the surface of the world. Once a prison colony for rebels and thugs, it is now a wild frontier, full of adventurous souls looking for wealth, fame, and magical power.

And then the Blight came. Almost overnight, the mushrooms Avernum needed to feed itself withered and died. Then the denizens of the low tunnels, the savage, reptilian Slithzerikai, emerged. Sensing weakness, they struck, destroying much of a weakened Avernum and creating waves of hungry, desperate refugees. Now chaos and hunger stalk this land, and none seem to be able to find a solution or a way to stop the Slith Horde.

Only you can help save the underground world of Avernum and put an end to the warfare that plagued the residents for so long. In order to do so, you will have to explore the huge world, defeat smart enemies and develop your character. Everything in Spring 2010.
