Explore the underworld
The Avernum saga is an epic series of old-school RPGs that provide everything that fans of Planescape: Torment and Baldur's Gate demand and if you haven't been introduced to their charms, then that needs to be rectified quickly. This one is perhaps best suited for fans of the original, so if you are a newcomer, then do yourself and favor and head back to the start so that you can soak everything up properly. The games are indie produced and although this shows in the lack of visual flash, the sheer depth of the world created here and the options within just show how much love has gone into their creation. The story here revolves around the overworld, which is ruled by the tyrannical Empire which punishes free speech and individuality, casting exiles deep into the underworld of Avernum. After the lord of the Empire was assassinated, the cruel regime now seeks to take revenge on Avernum by conquering it totally, which is where you come in as the hero to prevent this from happening. What follows is a truly epic adventure which sees you exploring an underworld populated by multiple cultures, with dozens of side quests and such things to keep you busy. If you can get past the basic looks, you'll be hard pushed to find a richer world and this is one game which feels genuinely real and alive, thanks to the sheer amount of work that's gone into the characters, story and other elements. The combat is simple but enjoyable, the magic system is well implemented and really, you'll have a hard time finding anything wrong with the game. For lovers of old-school RPGs, this is a must play.
