Sure you can return to Annwn, when you die. You can't leave again because you don't have the crown or permission.

The three artifact missions and for the Celts when they raid the Roman fort are the only cases where you can't go back if you miss something.

I tried to transfer some loot to an area where you can access it after you complete your mission. It gives me a little extra spending money.

I bought Nethergate a while back but registered it and had it sent to Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. What can I do if I lost the e-mail and registration details? I'd love to revisit Nethergate.

Do you think there will be a new opening theme for Nethergate: Resurrection?

You lose.

The old theme currently looks like it's in. And so does another old theme.

—Alorael, who honestly would rather not get new music when the old Nethergate music is so perfect. The only improvement he'd want is a full-length version.

I'm very interested in helping out with the Beta on this one, as well. I've never actually played the original Nethergate, but I've played the demo. :)

Did I miss anything regarding a beta request sign up?

Also, a blasphemous thought: If it is possible to adapt the BoA engine to the point where it uses a different set of spells and skills, could that form of the engine ever be released to the public?

Also, "Nethergate: Resurrection" - what happened to giving remakes dramatic names derived from Latin?

"Inferusporta"? :P

I still don't think Jeff has the game balance quite right for a Nethergate version of BoA/A3 game engine. The first version was way too powerful for the players.

I just tried the BoA game, and it did things to my computer.

I really wish he'd chosen to go with the Avernum Three engine...

The BoA engine and the Av3 engine is basically the same...

Yeah, but my computer likes A3, but dislikes BoA.

I understand why you like that system; but personally, I didn't like having the frequent compulsion to spend skill points.

You don't get the skill points as often under A3/BoA system. Early in the game this means waiting for them when they could be helpful for weapon skills. However BoA means that you can train in any town instead of waiting to get back to home base.

But the point is that the new Nethergate will roughly follow the naming convention of a sequel ("$game_title $number: $game_subtitle", omitting the number), even though it is obviously a remake. :P

I'd love to see Jeff do an online MMORPG version of this game (or any of the others, for that matter)

Nethergate is for the most part, dead. Nethergate Resurrection sounds cool, but it will probably be a flop. Sorry isjoeythere, but a Spidweb MMORPG isn't practical, especially Nethergate.

Why do you say this? The Avernum trilogy sold quite well (and still do), and they were remakes of "dead" titles.

I'm absolutely gonna buy this :D

Since it uses the BoA engine, and it is going to be a Universal Binary... does this also mean BoA is going to be a universal binary sometime soon too? :D (And A3? Oh pletty pleeease?)

I remember how excited I was when I tried the original Nethergate for the first time... the engine blew me away. It'll be nice to reminisce in an even better engine.

Anticipation++;

Um, if I'm not mistaken, Spidweb has released updates for most of its recent games (including BoA) to make them compatible with the latest versions of everything.

BoA is already a universal binary. Jeff claims he has never noticed problems running the Avernum trilogy using Rosetta, even though many of us have mentioned it, so universal versions of A1-3 are doubtful.
