Avernum: The Great Trials Trilogy Comes to Steam

Three indie classics for one low price!

May 11, 2012 Following the success of their Geneforge bundle and the recent remake of Avernum: Escape from the Pit, Spiderweb Software (http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com) is pleased to announce the Steam release of Avernum: Great Trials Trilogy for Windows , which combines the last 3 games of the Avernum series into one low price bundle of only $11.99 and an extra 20% off the first week. Avernum 4, 5, and 6 tells the tale of your land's struggles in the face of powerful forces that seek to destroy it. Fight for survival, hunt awesome foes, and help your weary homeland to find its final destiny.

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. Avernum's sole link to the surface world: a single magical portal, delicate and difficult to maintain.

In Avernum 4 takes place long after the previous game and will have you protecting Avernum from new monsters and assassins rising from the darkness that threatens to destroy your home. In Avernum 5, take a new role as protectors of the Empire, seeking to thwart assassins who would lay it low. Finally, in Avernum 6, a food blight and invasion of barbarian lizard people drive the underworld of Avernum to the brink of extinction. In each game you shape the world and the ending as you travel through the enormous, deadly world of Avernum.

Each game in the trilogy features a huge world, unique stories, challenging enemies, and up to forty hours of gameplay. Experience with earlier games in the series is unnecessary! Check it out at http://store.steampowered.com/app/206060/.
