In Underworld Ascendant for PC, you’ll be drawn into an epic story with ties to the original Ultima Underworld games.

As The Avatar, a human newly arrived from our earth through a mystical Rune Gate, you’ll become entangled in a tale of intrigue and conflict as three fierce, rival factions struggle for control. Your choices will determine the ultimate fate of The Stygian Abyss.

Think outside the box of formalized character classes and concoct your own one-of-a-kind adventurer. Jump right into the game, choose a Fighter, Mage or Thief, then customize your Avatar to your individual play style.

At the heart of Underworld Ascendant‘s distinctive gameplay is the Improvisation Engine, which will give you an array of tools with which to experiment and unlock your creative potential. Think up your own ingenious solutions to challenges. Devise clever techniques that even the game’s designers haven’t imagined yet.

OtherSide Entertainment seeks to raise at least $600,000 via Kickstarter by March 6th. Backing the game will grant you unprecedented front row access to the creation of Underworld Ascendant.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
