Spiderweb Software is a small indie video game developer founded in 1994 by Jeff Vogel and located in Seattle, Washington. Its primary focus is on creating demoware games for the Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. The company is fairly unique in that it first develops games for Macintosh systems before porting them to the Windows platform. It is also known for emphasizing storytelling and gameplay over graphics.[1]

Games[edit | edit source]

Spiderweb Software is most notable for the following Role-playing games:

Spiderweb's latest project was Avernum 6, the sixth and final instalment of the Avernum series, which was released in late 2009 for the Mac and Spring 2010 for Windows.[2]

After the Windows port of Avernum 6, Spiderweb Software announced that they are working on a new series, said to be in a brand new world with a new combat system.[3][4]

The company previously provided distribution services and other support for shareware developer Richard White, as well as for Crystal Shard. In June 2007, Jeff Vogel announced that the company would no longer be supporting Richard White's or Crystal Shard games, though they are still available for download through Spiderweb's main site.[5]
