Geneforge 5 Overthrow
Spiderweb software on Wednesday released the final sequel to the Genefore fantasy RPG series, Geneforge 5: Overthrow. The game takes place in a land ruled by beings, known as Shapers, that are able to create life. When the creations decide to rebel against their rulers, a war breaks out between the factions, destroying the land and leading to a conflict that remains stuck in a stalemate. As the main character, the player must find a way to bring an end to the war.
With more than 80 areas to explore, users can choose from five different factions, each offering different quests, benefits and unique cities. A variety of tactics can be used throughout the game, including stealth, diplomatic and physical actions. Players can choose to join the rebels or the Shapers, leading to dozens of possible endings.
Geneforge 5 is now available for download, with a price of $30. An optional game guide can be purchased for $7, or a copy of the game on disc for $5.
