Spiderweb Software has updated Avernum 6 for Mac OS X
(http://www.avernum.com/avernum6/index.html) to version 1.0.2.
Avernum 6 is the final game in the epic Avernum series. This upgrade
fixes a handful of minor bugs and purportedly adjusts the game’s
balance to make it much more manageable in the late game.
Avernum 6 is set in the world of Avernum, an enormous series of caves
far below the surface of the world. Here’s how the game is described:
“Avernum is a world underground. It is a nation of people living in
an enormous warren of tunnels and caverns, far below the surface of
the world. Once a prison colony for rebels and thugs, it is now a
wild frontier, full of adventurous souls looking for wealth, fame,
and magical power.
“And then the Blight came. Almost overnight, the mushrooms Avernum
needed to feed itself withered and died. Then the denizens of the low
tunnels, the savage, reptilian Slithzerikai, emerged. Sensing
weakness, they struck, destroying much of a weakened Avernum and
creating waves of hungry, desperate refugees. This final set of
disasters threatens to destroy your homeland in a spasm of famine and
warfare. Only you can help your people to get to safety before
everything falls apart.
“The game features clever enemies and dozens of interesting scripted
encounters. Learn over 50 spells and battle disciplines. Hunt for
hundreds of magical items or craft your own powerful artifacts.”
