GameBanshee has posted a nice little review for Eschalon: Book III.
Among other things, they say: “The maps in Book III work really well. Basilisk Games like Larian Studios has always been good about rewarding players for taking the time to explore carefully.”
See the downloads page to grab the update. GoG and Steam versions will be updated soon.
A formal changelog can be found here, but essentially we fixed bugs and exploits, though there is some additional support for mods.

Russian gaming website stopgame.ru wrote a seemingly positive review. It’s illegible to us, but we got a big, green thumbs-up icon, so we’ll assume they liked it.

We are still recovering from complete server meltdown an hour ago. Give us a bit more time and we will have some quality download links set up. So sorry for the sketchy launch!
Happy Valentines Day!

This is a public service announcement from Basilisk Games.
Eschalon: Book III is a very challenging game, especially the first time through. If you are the type of person who, in real life, likes to explore abandoned factories with weak floors and crumbling ceilings, then Book III might be right for you. If you enjoy receiving puzzles that your very life depends on solving, or perhaps swimming in shark-infested waters with meat strapped to your legs sounds like a thrilling afternoon, then you might have fun playing Book III. If you always chose “dare” instead of “truth”, or if you are one of those people who does things your own way because your boss is an idiot, then you’ll enjoy Book III.
However, if your idea of a good time is snuggling up with a safe choose-your-own-adventure book and a hot mug of cocoa, then email us and we’ll direct you to a few mainstream RPGs that are more your speed.
