Role playing game (RPG) maker Spiderweb Software has announced the development of a new title —
for Mac and Windows. The game is coming this summer.
Nethergate: Resurrection is a “ground-up rewrite” of the original Nethergate, a game that tells the story of Celtic warriors in the ancient land of Britannia, long subjugated by the Roman empire. In the town of Shadowvale this band of barbarians rediscovers their own people’s ancient ways, and heads forth to free their people from the shackles of imperial slavery.
Or you can take the role of the Romans, protecting their interests in this remote land on the border of their empire, quelling the barbarian uprising once and for all. It’s up to you.
The game features a multitude of quests, cities and dungeons to explore, hundreds of magical items to collect and more.
Like Spiderweb’s other offerings, like the Geneforge and Avernum series, Nethergate: Resurrection is a classic role playing game that uses a turn-based system and tiled graphics rendered in a three-quarters (isometric) perspective, similar to classics like Ultima.
