Posted 16 March 2011 - 06:55 PM #1 Avadon: The Black Fortress Released for Mac and Forthcoming News

We have released Avadon: The Black Fortress, an all-new, Indie fantasy
role-playing game. Avadon is an epic adventure in a strange and
dangerous world. You are a spy and warrior, tasked to fight the enemies
of your homeland. As a servant of the Black Fortress, your word is law.
Gain power and influence, experience an exciting adventure, and battle
a conspiracy to destroy your people.

You are an agent of Avadon. The Black Fortress. Outside your lands,
there are limitless threats. Barbarians. Fading, jealous empires.
Titans and unspeakable horrors. The warriors and spies of Avadon are
sent to keep them weak and divided. Your resources are unlimited, and
all must obey you.

But a dark time is coming. Assassins are killing Avadon's warriors, and
hidden enemies plot to unite all of your homeland's foes. If you cannot
discover and destroy this conspiracy, and soon, your people face total
destruction. But beware. The assassins will soon come for you...

Avadon: The Black Fortress is an epic fantasy role-playing adventure in
an enormous and unique world. You can choose from four different
character classes, each with dozens of unique spells and abilities.
Explore cunning dungeons, hunt for hundreds of magical artifacts, and
travel through an enormous world, full of secrets. Avadon features many
different endings. Your choices will change the world, and there is
plenty of replay value.

Screenshots and a nice, large demo are available at site to download Avadon

* Avadon Updated To v1.0.1

If you are one of the many people who have already purchased Avadon,
thank you! You should know that we have updated the Macintosh version
to v1.0.1. This upgrade fixes a lot of bugs, and we recommend it. To
upgrade your copy, simply download the new version and install it over
the old one. Your registration and saved games will be unaffected. You
can get the new version at the link above.

* Avadon Coming For Windows and iPad

Of course, we want to make sure more than just Mac owners get in on the
fun. The Windows version of Avadon: The Black Fortress has entered beta
testing, and we hope to have it ready in the beginning of May.

Also, we are thrilled to announce that we are also finally entering the
exciting world of developing for portable platforms. Avadon: The Black
Fortress will soon be available for the iPad. We aren't sure exactly
when it'll be ready, because that will depend in part on what Apple
says. When it's out, we'll let you know.

* What Else Is Coming?

We are also slowly starting work on a ground-up rewrite of Avernum,
which is itself a rewrite of our first title, Exile: Escape From the
Pit. After a decade, Avernum is showing its age and very much in need
of freshening up, with a new engine and graphics. (As well as a long
overdue appearance on the iPhone.) But don't worry! This will only be a
several month detour for us before we get back to writing all-new
games.
