Eschalon: Book 1 - What a game(spoilers obviously)

Youst finished Eschalon: Book 1 and reloaded to get all the endings.

Very impressed with it and can't wait to start Book 2.

Having played a mage throughout I youst went invisible and nuked Gramuk, killed in less then a minute(not bragging youst surprised since I had read how mages got weaker as the game went on)


I had a good 40+k gold with around 100 or so lvl3 pots so having wondered wheter I really needed 20mercentile, I really didn't.

The soundtrack was absolutely stunning, very Jeremy Soule'ish.


I still can't believe it was a 2007 game, it truly felt like an old school gem.

What is the best game from them?
Eschalon?
Geneforge 1-5?
Avernum Escape from the pit?
Avadon The Black Fortress?

man don't make me decide.

If I have to, I'd say Avernum: Escape from the Pit.

Um, Eschalon is made by Basilisk Games, and Avadon/Avernum/Geneforge are made by Spiderweb Software. Different companies. I think Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb has probably been in the business longer, since he's been remaking Exile/Avernum since I was a kid 14 or so years ago.

On topic, I haven't played Eschalon yet, though it's on my list. Avernum is awesome, and worth the time.

Jeff Vogel also looks like a thinner Gaben.

First time I heard of Eschalon.

Its turn based nature seems to be soft. That makes it slightly attractive, contrary to everything else by Spiderweb.
