Huh. Since when did Spiderweb start outsourcing its games? Reflexive Arcade just added it to its game list, and it says it was developed by Oberon Media. :confused: They even used the screenshots from the Avernum page.

They have a 14.22MB trial and you can buy the full version for $19.95. Unless you, the management, are getting some sort of royalties from this, I suggest you take it up with them.

here's the link: http://www.reflexive.com/AvernumIV.html

heh. registered for the sole purpose of telling you this...

I'm going to inform Jeff of this by E-mail tomorrow unless one of you does it first. I guarantee you this is illegal.

This proves that SpidWeb games are games not to be trifled with lightly..

Yes, but didn't the Toshiba site at least credit Spiderweb? Whoever these Oberon folks are, I don't think Jeff's with them.

There's a good chance that the game is properly licensed, but I'd bet Jeff would rather have credit given to the right company.

—Alorael, who on the other hand wouldn't be terribly surprised if this incarnation of the third party sales is theft. Any above-board seller should, in fact, give credit to the right company.

Completely 100% legit. It's not the first time we've let other companies distribute our games either. We get paid. No worries.

In that case, the attribution to "Oberon Media" may just be a misfiling error...

Oberon Media is listed as having developed so many games, it must itself be a sort of redistributor. Jeff's deal is probably with them, rather than with the linked site directly.

Just curious, how much royalties do you receive for letting them distribute your games?

I was getting worried.

Well, I am still going to buy the games from the Spiderweb Website.

Doing that helps more to supporting the company.
And no support=by by to one of the best game companies.
