Kyshakk Koan ladyonthemoon Posted March 8, 2019 Share Posted March 8, 2019 (edited) The very first time I discovered Spiderweb Software, I was looking for video games to play. It was, I think in 2004, I found this web-site, downloaded Avernum, the demo and started playing. It was enough for me to fall in love with video games and the Avernum games, that I bought. I bought them here, on this site, if I recall correctly I paid using international money orders, if that's how it's called (I'm French by the way). At the time you just downloaded the demo and bought an activation key. I've lost all these keys a long time ago. Not long ago, I noticed that the three games had been remastered but I was not interested in remastered games, so I passed. Then, they were released on Steam, or so I thought; I bought Avernum: Escape from the pit but noticed very fast that it was the remastered version... Eventually, I found the very original first trilogy on GOG! I bought both the first and second trilogy on GOG and now I'm happy; that's all I wanted, replaying the first original trilogy. How many hours had I sunk in these games back then? I don't know but I kept playing and replaying them. Then I discovered Morrowind, and Oblivion, and Skyrim... Even played a bit of the Fallout games; spent a lot of time modding these games too and never found the time to even think about Spiderweb games; they were somewhere in my memory, imbued with nostalgia. I thought I would never play them again until I saw them on Steam. The weird thing, when I think of it, is that I could have come here and bought them again; I didn't, for some reason. Strangely enough, I haven't replayed Avernum since I bought the series on GOG. Since I'm always late at everything, I discovered the conference Jeff Vogel gave at the GDC last year only a few days ago, which lead me here. I noticed that there was a forum and here I am! I also bought the whole Geneforge Saga on Steam just after watching the video. I had bought Avadon: Black Fortress on Steam some time ago but never took to it, I bought Avadon 2: The corruption just to support Spiderweb Software. And I just notice that there is an Avadon 3 that I didn't buy... Correction: I just bought it. Time to list the Spiderweb Software games I own. On Steam: Avernum: Escape From the Pit (the remastered version of Avernum), the Avadon Trilogy, the Geneforge Saga. On GOG: the two Avernum trilogies, Blades of Avernum. So, who am I? There's not much to say about me; I love video games but I'm very discriminate, I wouldn't play any game just because it's a game. I'd also like very much to make at least one game of my own; one day, maybe? And I'm old, born in the mid fifties. Thank you for your patience if your read this through! See you out there!
