    Hello I feel bad :/

    Hello everyone! I've been a fan of Aveyond Studios for a loooong time (Before AV3!). I don't think I've ever participated in the forums before. I've always thought that there would be OTHER people keeping our community alive. Then I realised that I was wrong. I'm part of this community and I want to help to keep it going. So I've decided to post and reply and just be PRESENT because it matters. If you love something you gotta help it grow in any way you can. I'm gonna be more active from now own :D

    Aveyond Mac OS Official Thread

    It isn't offensive. In fact, I think more people should have been asking this question Sadly, I cannot pay the $100 Apple fee to get verified, and there are no guarantees I will be even when I do that I'll check on this. In the meanwhile, does Alt/Option + Enter take you fullscreen? A couple of other things: 1) There are a few bugs in demo versions fixed in the full game (I'm too lazy to fix up the demos) 2) The links in other posts are old and stale. Go to https://radialapps.com for newer links

    How does Amaranth survive?

    Demographics are all over the place, but I would say the majority of players are in their 30's.

    How does Amaranth survive?

    What I've been curious about is the demographics (I'm not even sure if Amanda has a way to track this - unless age is recorded when signing up for accounts?). I've long been curious whether these types of RPGs skew older to computer fogies like me (mid-30s) as they tend to be simpler to understand and play or whether for that very reason these RPGs skew younger to people first getting into gaming...or just somewhere in between!

    How does Amaranth survive?

    I find that games from EA are more of mindless shooting and boring. Aveyond is like reading a book. You play for the story...

    That would be bad since EA games sucks the life out of their holdings.

    Amaranth Games survive because they make amazing games. Their RPGs have a unique concept + catchy graphics + amazing music by Aaron Walz + humorous characters = success. If they'll keep on following this formula, maybe EA Games would even attempt to buy Amaranthia.

    Amanda is not limiting herself to PC games. Curse at Twilight is available on the Mac. It should be on iPad soon, and Gypsy's Tale already is. Pixel Pygmies is being developed for multiple platforms, and we are aiming to have our RPGs run on multiple platforms too, though I'm not sure when the first of those will be released.

    How does Amaranth survive?

    I don't think PC gaming will disappear for quite some time. I can't see playing the FPS's, RTS's and RPG's I like on a small touchscreen. I need a keyboard, mouse and big screen to get the full effect.

    I think part of the reason is that Aveyond is pretty popular with RPG folks. I've been watching BFG's RPG list for a long time, and what I've noticed is that while new RPGs may dominate the #1 spot due to brisk sales during the first month, inevitably, in the long run, all six Aveyond games will still float back into the Top 10 RPGs. One or two may fall off for a short spell, but all six will always bounce back again, which is no small feat. With the coming of the iOS and Android markets though, I cannot pretend that I'm not a little scared at the way Sandlot, Reflexive, Alawar, Playfirst, and many other prominent game developers abandoned the PC/Mac market (even abandoning support for their own game catalogue) and pray that Amaranth won't ever need to go the same way. What we have to remember is that those companies are probably very investor conscious, so they had to abandon what they saw as a declining market in favour of richer pastures. But I don't think PC games will truly die until Windows phase out support for Windows 7, which hopefully won't be for another five years. (Aside from anything else, I don't think I can play my DotA on a Samsung pad - I'd get owned for sure! XD)

    Aveyond's a pretty famous game, I'm sure Amaranth still sells Rhen's quest. I used to think she'd be super rich, but now I admire her for management. Amaranth ears the most at a single point, when a game is released. To manage that wealth for about 9-12 months min, until the next game must be hard

    How does Amaranth survive?

    Well, people obviously still do buy the PC games and game making engines from Amaranth, as it's still in business. Personally, I'll buy a game from Amaranth instead of from a different place in order to support Amanda and her team. And there have been no announcements or any talk about the site closing, and Amaranth continues to make games for us, so I'm assuming all is well.
