Spiderweb Software, Inc. announced today the release of Avernum: Escape From the Pit HD, an epic, indie fantasy role-playing saga for the iPad. Avernum tells a story of imprisonment, rebellion, and the struggle for freedom against overwhelming odds, the tale of desperate exiles and their battle for survival and a land to call their own. It also features an enormous world, multitudes of dungeons to explore and treasures to find, and over thirty hours of glorious fantasy action.
You have been banished to the underworld, never to see the light of day again.
The surface is ruled by the cruel Emperor Hawthorne, master of the Empire. All of the known lands are subject to his brutal command. Everyone who speaks out, who misbehaves, who doesn't fit in is cast into the dark, volcanic pits of Avernum, far below the surface. There, you are expected to die, a victim of starvation, horrible monsters, or simple despair.
But not all of the Avernites have surrendered. With magic and steel, they are forging a new nation deep underground. You can join them and fight for safety. Or freedom. Or even, if you dare, revenge on the surface-dwellers who tried to destroy you.
Avernum: Escape From the Pit is an epic fantasy role-playing adventure in a unique and deadly world. Fight to complete up to three game-winning quests. Explore a massive nation of tunnels and caverns, seeking out eighty towns and dungeons. Master over 50 spells and battle disciplines and hunt for hundreds of magical artifacts. Avernum: Escape From the Pit is a total, ground-up rewrite of the last century's Indie hit Avernum.
Avernum: Escape From the Pit HD 1.0 is $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category.
