Avernum 2 v2.0 upgrade
Spiderweb Software, the maker of fine fantasy role-playing adventures for the Mac, today released Avernum 2 v2.0, which enables the game to run natively on Mac OS X. Avernum 2 is a classic fantasy role-playing game that features 3-D, 16-bit graphics, including drawings by well-known fantasy illustrator Phil Foglio, a massive storyline with three different game-winning quests, and "addicting" gameplay: "Avernum is a prison. It is an enormous warren of tunnels and caverns, far below the surface world. You were banished there by the cruel Empire, to spend the rest of your life in the underworld. At first, it seemed like you and your many fellow prisoners might be able to form a nation and live in peace, far from the sun." A demo is available online, while a patch for the upgrade is available via the company's website. The full version of Avernum 2 is available for $25.
