Spiderweb Software has announced a new Mac gaming title called Geneforge. This RPG (role playing game) gives you the power to invent life and mold it to form a following of creatures. Here is a tidbit from the description of the game:
You are a Shaper. You are a member of the most powerful and secretive of the magical guilds, with the power to create life and mold it to serve your own needs. For millenia, everyone 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.
If you need a servant, you have but to create it, and it will gladly die for you.
But now your secrets are at risk. Someone dares to try to steal the power of the Shapers and take them for his own. He has committed the ultimate crime. He has captured you, and he will do anything to get you to surrender their secrets.
He would use the power of the Shapers to remake the world. The question is a simple one. Will you fight him? Or join him?
Geneforge will be made available on CD-ROM. The tentative release date is not yet determined, but the game will be available sometime at the end of 2001, early 2002. For more information on Geneforge, drop by the Spiderweb Web site.
