Exile (computer game)
series is a series of roleplaying gamess
for Microsoft Windows
and the Apple Macintosh
written by Spiderweb Software. The series consists of four games:
- Exile: Escape from the Pit
- Exile II: Crystal Souls
- Exile III: Ruined World
- Blades of Exile
The first three of these games form a trilogy covering the exploits of the inhabitants of Exile, a vast series of underground caves populated by those banished by the Empire, rulers of the surface world, culminating in their eventually gaining the ability to return to the surface. Blades of Exile
consists of three short "scenarios" set after the main trilogy and an editor that allows players to create their own scenarios, which need not be set in the Exile game world at all.
More recently the first three Exile games have been remade as the (possibly less well-known) Avernum series, which replaced the two-dimensional tile-based graphics system with an isometric one and made numerous changes to the RPG system. Blades of Avernum is currently under production.
