Hot off the press and just announced, OtherSide Entertainment have now begun their Kickstarter campaign for 'Underworld Ascendant'; an overhauled, modernised sequel to the all time legendary RPG games 'Ultima Underworld' & 'Ultima Underworld 2'. The developers are aiming for a $600,000 goal and have mentioned the sequel will have more modern visuals and a user interface to take advantage of today's powerful PC's.
According to the developers the game will use the Improvisation Engine as you plunge into the Stygian Abyss. a dark world ripe with dangers and full of ancient secrets to discover. It will also feature Dynamic Factions, a choice of characters such as the thief or mage, and boundary pushing ideas such as co-op play while fighting in menacing dungeons against evil beasts.
A bold move by OtherSide Entertainment as they have a lot to live up to, but they have our cleric's blessing for a Kickstarter pledge.
Both Ultima Underworld 1 and 2, can be purchased through GOG
