When Jeff remakes the Avernum trilogy, what will he call them?
When he first remade them he changed the name from Exile to Avernum. Will this be Avernum: Resurrection or what?
Discuss!

Isn't that obvious? It'll be the "Filbert trilogy" of course!

To be more precise: "Hades: Escape from the Overused Plot", "Hades 2: Save our Souls", "Hades 3: Ruined Game Interface Further". :P

He actually stated in some update thread somewhere that the updated Avernum series would be called the Exile series.

Isn't that original?!

It's a smart move. There are lots of people out there that haven't played one of his games yet.

Exile, as a name, owns Avernum. I hope he does go back to using it.

Hold the phone.

Remake… again?

Holy He… why?

If this is for real, where did you find this information?

He said it in some post some time ago, something along the lines of:

"We want people to enjoy our games for as long as possible, so therefor we'll remake the Avernum trilogy using the new Avernum engine."

It's basically for the same reasons he remade nethergate: the game was liked, and couldn't be run on newer macs. He's going to do the same with Avernum now.

Well, he's not going to do it right now. It'll be after Avernum 6, at least.

I dunno about a remade A2, but if Jeff's new game is called Electric Bugaloo, I'll buy extra copies to give to all my friends.

Jeff will be remaking the Avernums when they start going obsolete. Just like Nethergate.

Except for Blades. Of course, it'd be nice if he just fixed the things that don't work in it.

Maybe he'll just call them Avernum, but with the Exile subtitles attached to differentiate them from the old-engine Avernums.

So long as it's not "Avernum Reloaded".

Maybe... "Avernum: No More Crystals"? Or "Avernum: The Vahnatai Have Had Enough".
