Ambrosia makes RPGs?!!
It's been ages since I've checked out what they have (they kind of lost me after EV:Nova, as none of their followup games seemed to interest me...) - could you point me in the direction of the game you're thinking of?
(But, for Mac CRPGs, it's Basilisk, Spiderweb, and Soldak, and that's pretty much it over the last decade or so, from what I've seen...)
Have you played the Geneforge series? They all run natively on Mac, and they are made by Spiderweb Software, the same company that developed Avernum. Nethergate: Resurrection is another Spiderweb Software RPG game that runs natively on Mac, although its engine/graphics are like those of the first three Avernum games. If you're using PPC mac, some of Spiderweb Software's earlier/earliest games might work on your system as well.jbergvt wrote:I have played all of the Avernum games
...Not a bad game, if you can stand the really, really primitive graphics and animation and the really clumsy gameplay . . . I'm really into Celtic folklore so that's the aspect that drew me in.macdude22 wrote:Nethergate: Resurrection, there's something that ate a week of my life in '07.

I'm new to this forum but was wondering if anyone had links to rpg's for mac. I have played all of the Avernum games and , of course, Eschalon I. I'm waiting for Book 2, which I know is coming soon, but was looking for more games like those mentioned. Thanks to all who can help.

Yeah . . . unfortunately, though, when he "updated" Nethergate -- remember -- it was still that old clumsy interface where you were best off using the keyboard to move you character around, lest you bump into walls all the time . . . the old graphics and the old simplistic animation. But . . . obviously I can't really comment knowledgeably on his plans for A1-A3 since I've no idea what he plans to do with them.Riggon wrote:Apparently Jeff's thinking about going back at some point and updating Avernum 1, porting it into the new engine and giving it the latest graphics and sounds. I hope he does, because as it currently stands I really can't play any of his earliest games for longer than five minutes... I honestly can't.

Unfortunately, NwN1 is no longer on sale for the Mac. I'm sure you can find it used, though, so . . . no argument.
