I love this game.
It’s actually the first in the Geneforge series, a set of five games by Spiderweb Software.
It’s super old-school (and from 2001!) so the graphics aren’t that great.
But you don’t play this game for the graphics. Play it for the tidy turn-based combat, and the deep puzzles — both technical and moral.
We’ve mentioned before that we’re pretty serious fans of Lois McMaster Bujold.
However, neither of us had previously delved into her fantasy novels. (Too distracted by Vorkosigan.)
Regardless, we’ve found them now. And they’re pretty good. Let’s have a look at one series in particular, The Sharing Knife, which is composed of four separate novels. (I’m a little disappointed that no new books are planned in that universe.)
Of course, there will be some spoilers.
