RPG Vault: Avernum 4 Wrap Report
Avernum 4 has been an enormous success for us. I'm not sure we've ever had a game that sold so fast. It is very satisfying to me. We worked very hard for a long time, and we have been rewarded. Real life should work that way.
Though sales have been fantastic, there is a part of my fanbase that isn't entirely happy with the game. It has much more emphasis on action and exploration, and less on dialogue and intricate plot. For the people who love my games because of the storyline and writing, Avernum 4 was sort of jarring. The Geneforge games are much more to their speed.
But I like to write all different sorts of games. Sometimes, I like action. Big, elaborate, complex battles are a lot of fun! And now that the carnage is out of my system, our next game, Geneforge 4, will have a much more intricate storyline.
