Blades of Avernum: Nostalgia and Beauty.

Recommended Posts

I'm replaying Blades of Avernum and will be playing almost every scenario (Expect a ton of reviews to come up!)

 

One thing that comes to mind and beckons, is that looking back so many of the scenarios happen to be so beautiful to me. I think there is a certain kind of visual style to the terrain that makes it look incredibly appealing (even more than Blades of Exile and I have a huge bias towards 2D sprites) and the scenarios seem to be very condensed (which I think is a carryover of a preference people seem to have developed during the late days of Blades of Exile) which I think evokes some kind of warm feeling. I just wanted to express that I guess.

Oh god. I hope "almost every" doesn't stem to mine.

 

Good luck, though! It is interesting to see that people are still playing. Hell, it almost seems like BoA interest might rekindle seeing all this recent interest, but that'd be a bit too optimistic.

The coals are still smoldering, all they need now is a good blow and a little fuel, then BoA will be up and running with the wind again. Don't let the embers die out!

 

I really like the graphics too, probably because I've spent far too much time looking at them. :)

 

And I think it's amazing what some people have done in their scenarios to make them look really beautiful. Niemand and TM's scenarios come to mind.

I like TM's style, too (especially Emerald Mountain), but if you're looking for pretty, you need to play some of Ephesos's scenarios.
