Aveyond 2 has been released. Because it's an RPG I didn't have time to complete the whole thing before posting this, but I enjoyed the first one and its freeware prequel and from what I've played so far it seems solid, so if you like this genre of game it's probably worth trying out.

One thing I do think has improved over the earlier games by the same author is mouse control, you can now move around and talk to people using either the mouse or the keyboard.

This seems to be a big week for shareware indie game releases -- Democracy 2, Aveyond 2, and Aquaria.

Name: Aveyond 2
Developer: Amanda Fitch / Amaranth Games

Ah -- I saw it on the front page of the announcements on indiegamer.com today, yes, so I assumed it was released today. I'll edit it.

Just looks like an RPG Maker game.

Not to err you troy rules, but the engine credited for the making of the game is indeed RPG Maker XP, so it's not "like" it, it IS it. :O

Haha, hope we don't have another judge a game by the engine argument :D
