Spiderweb Software has released an update for Geneforge, bringing it to version 1.0.1. Geneforge is a science fiction role-playing game designed to be open ended for high replay value. Players have the ability to choose their own course of action, instead of relying on a rigid story line. The update includes new features and bug fixes. According to Spiderweb Software:
Spiderweb Software, makers of the award-winning Exile series, Nethergate, and Avernum, announces the release of Geneforge, their newest fantasy role-playing game with a science fiction twist. In Geneforge, you are free to choose what your overall goal is, and you can seek after it with your own horde of deadly, mutant monsters.
You are a Shaper, a member of the most powerful and secretive of the magical guilds. You have the power to create life and mold it to serve your own needs. For millennia, your world feared and respected the Shapers above all others. Their creations could go everywhere, do anything, all according to the wishes of the Shapers and no others.
Geneforge is a fantasy role-playing game for the Macintosh. It features fully animated 16-bit graphics, the ability to create your own army of lethal, totally obedient creatures, and a cunning enemy AI with foes who can go on patrols, stalk you, and run for help.
