Siege of Avalon takes a new approach to computer game storytelling (and computer game marketing, as well). This medieval fantasy role-playing game is constructed in chapters. Developers and producers at Digital Tome offer the first chapter in the story for free. Subsequent chapters are available for purchase online. While each chapter in the game contains a complete tale, the chapters relate to one another and form a larger, more intricate story as they are played in succession.
The first chapter is a fairly large 94 MB, but the following chapters will take much less space. All chapters will remain available online for purchase and download, allowing gamers to play at their own pace. Of the six chapters available for the game, three (including the first one) are crucial to the main story and the other three function more like expansion packs, to add tangential characters and allow new abilities.
The protagonist in the game is a young man who arrives at the fortress of Avalon just at the climax of a long and costly war. Great adventure awaits him. The game features an isometric perspective with lots of places to explore and characters to meet. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
