Spiderweb Software proudly presents Exile: Escape From the Pit, a new,
full-length, fantasy role-playing shareware game for Windows. Exile features
a huge, highly detailed world with many quests, beautiful, professionally
done graphics, scads of characters to interact with, and almost eighty
towns and dungeons, scattered over an enormous world.
Exile has several overall game quests, of varying difficulty, each the
size of a full game. If one doesn't appeal to you, you can try another,
or all of them! The game can be as linear and goal-driven as you want
it to be. Exile also has a simple, elegant skill-based character system.
No more character classes - you design characters who do exactly what

puzzles, and, of course, the obligatory hordes of evil nasties just waiting
to be robbed and butchered. Finally, the first full half of the game is
free, with full functionality!
