IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Avadon 2 (Windows Beta)
hand Youtube account, I come bearing a new video: IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Avadon 2! Specifically, we’ll be looking at an early version of the Windows port of the game. It’s still in beta, but this should give us a peek at what we’re in for:
Jeff Vogel has been making these sorts of games for a long time, and it shows. He’s gotten this thing down to a science. There isn’t much to critique here that can’t be chalked up to the limitations of an introductory sequence (after all, a measure of linearity is necessary if you’re going to teach the player basic skills for play in the right order).
The Windows port of Avadon 2 has been scheduled for release this fall; beyond that, we don’t have anything more specific. Given that the beta only represents 1/3 of the game’s content, I expect it’ll be at least a month or two more before it sees release in its final form.
