THOUSANDS of hours of classic RPG gameplay for as little as $7.37!

One of the most prominent reasons people play computer role-playing games, is to escape the reality of our world and immerse oneself in a completely different realm, that will let you lead a different life for hours and hours. But what makes for a believable fantastic land? It's not the graphics, it's not the controls, it's not even perfect acting of non-player characters. It's a large, complex, and living gameworld, filled with enthralling and deep stories that makes it easy for the gamer to jump realities. Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb Software figured it out years ago, and--with the help of his colleagues of Spiderweb Software--continues to provide us with such worlds since the year 1994. Today, we offer you the chance to complete your collection of Spiderweb Software RPG Epics, with up to 80% off discount, for the next 24 hours. You can also get just one of the three sagas with 70% discount, or two of them with 75% discount. As usually, if you already own one or more items in the promo, you can complete your bundle with the higher discount rate!

Avernum: The Complete Saga tells an epic story of an underground prison colony. Each chapter presents a turning point in Avernum's history placing the player's party of adventurers at the center of events, making them overthrow tyrants, defend the land from vile demons, discover ominous schemes, meet strange creatures, and accumulate the power needed to change the fate itself. The series consists of two lengthy trilogies, hundreds of hours worth of gameplay each, and an additional title, The Blades of Avernum, that gives you six shorter additional scenarios and a tool to design your own adventures, prolonging your experience indefinitely.

Avadon: The Black Fortress is one of the biggest cRPG games out there. It tells the story of an agent of the fabled Black Fortress, a keeper of your land and protector of its people. Some may call you a hero, other may see a villain in you, but what's important is to keep your homeland safe from all who might threaten its peace. Its impressive complexity and a rich world filled with adventure that it presents you, puts it on par with the greatest cRPG titles of the good old days. When it comes to gameplay, its classic turn-based system proves to be perfect, and all role-playing fans will feel right at home with it. This is classic PC gaming!

Geneforge 1-5 takes everything you love about classic isometric RPGs and adds a truly original setting and gameplay mechanics. You're playing either the role of a powerful Shaper, commanding an army of his creations, or a Rebel who fights a seemingly lost cause of freeing the world from the flesh-twisting magic. Either way, you'll be exploring a complex and vast gameworld filled with masterfully crafted quests offered by innumerable NPCs. Five lengthy and immensely satisfying games in this collection!

Thousands of hours of classic PC RPG gameplay that Avernum: The Complete Saga, Avadon: The Black Fortress, and Geneforge 1-5 offer is probably the ultimate value an old-school role-playing fan can get for their money! The Spiderweb Software RPG Epics promo lasts until Thursday, July 25, at 9:59AM GMT.
Wow. Deja Vu.

Last week's Humble Bundle Weekly Sale was offering seven Spiderweb RPG game packages plus hint books. Snagged the lot for $4.65.
And for those 5 GOGnards what ain't got the games yet, ye can win 'em.

tfishell: Sounds good. The age supports them as g.o.g.'s, don't know if the gameplay is actually good, though.

What would Vogel's incentive be to do all the work required for the games to work on 64-bit systems? Or GOG's?
That's a genuine question as the key word is freeware.

Exposure, introduction to Vogel's work that could lead others to buy his other games, GOG publicity (like the purpose of their other freebies), etc.

I think you're interrogating the wrong guy, though. I don't have strong feelings about GOG trying to bring these here.

Seems I've read too much into your sounds good.
Sorry, didn't mean to be a burden.
Double post due to GOG playing up and not showing my post for over an hour - arghh.

MobiusArcher: Can you always grind to get stronger? I don't have any problem with hours of level grinding on enemies. I don't like having to choose the 'correct' skills if I want to have a decent chance of beating the game. That is an issue I have had with too many PC RPGs where there are only a set number of enemies to get experience off of.
This^

All possible character builds in any RPG should be a potentially legit approach, otherwise why are they possible builds? I haven't actually encountered such a pefect RPG yet though, there always seems to be a specific developer-intended upgrade path - for example, the necessity to focus on at least one combat skill, no matter your character's play-style.
I can't stand these games. They start out all fun and get more and more frustratingly aggravating as you go along. The games are so ridiculously tedious that I think they serve the purpose well. The purpose is to make the game able to be beaten by turn based masters and anyone that doesn't know exactly what to do in every exact spot is finished. I guess I'm finished. I only played the Geneforge series but I doubt it makes a difference.
Hmm, I have the Geneforge series already, so I can get Avernum and Avadon for less than $5. Tempting, but as I have yet to even start the Geneforge games, I can't imagine I would ever have the time to play the other ones. But its so little money. Argh!!
Wow! This is a great sale! I missed the Humble Bundle sale a couple weeks ago and I've had my eye on these games for a while. I can't wait to jump into Geneforge.

Well, Spiderweb owns the rights to the games so they can choose not to make the 64-bit compatible versions freeware and instead give them as extras with Avernum.

As for the question... I personally would probably buy the Avernum series if it also got me working Exiles. Whereas at the moment I will not buy the Avernum series, because the only game I really want to revisit is Exile 3.
Two hours left for this promo...
I'm sleepy, drunk and happy (my football team just won the biggest cup in America for the first time) and I'm now having the munchies to buy these games (because in this hour of the night they remind me somewhat of the legendary Castle of the Winds)

Damn, Gog, take my money.
Please don't release a classic tomorrow, please!

(who I'm kidding, release one with the least amount of pixels as possible)
