Longtime role playing game developer Spiderweb Software Inc. has announced the development of
Geneforge 3, the latest installment of its fantasy RPG series featuring a science fiction twist. In Geneforge 3, you take the role of a “Shaper,” a person who mixes arcane magic with genetic manipulation to create your own minions to serve your needs. Your school has been attacked and the land falls into chaos; you have to find a way to defeat those that would take advantage. Featuring an open storyline, Geneforge 3 lets you align yourself with the different factions represented in the game, each following a different path that makes the story end a different way. Spiderweb Software plans to release Geneforge 3 in the first half of 2005. It will be available for US$25 or $32 with a bundled hint book.
