From Press Release:
Calabasas, Calif. – Nov. 15, 2018 – Independent game studio OtherSide Entertainment, co-founded by legendary game designers Paul Neurath (Ultima Underworld, Thief) and Warren Spector (System Shock 3, Deus Ex, Epic Mickey), in partnership with publisher 505 Games, today launched the fan-funded dungeon action-RPG Underworld Ascendant. Available now on Steam for PC for $29.99 USD, players who purchase Underworld Ascendant through Nov. 21, 2018 will receive three in-game bonus items to aid their journey through the Stygian Abyss:
- Vorpa: A companion creature that appears mild-mannered, but will launch itself at nearby enemies who are at extremely low health
- Mana Leech: A companion creature that absorbs Mana throughout the world, “firing” its reserves at the player when Mana is low
- Map of The Stygian Abyss: A digital map of the iconic Stygian Abyss to aid players in their explorations of its fathoms
Written & directed by Joe Fielder (Bioshock Infinite), Underworld Ascendant takes players back in time to the genesis of role-playing games as they assume the role of ‘The Ascendant,’ summoned to the legendary Stygian Abyss by a mysterious figure called Cabirus. There, they learn of the beast Typhon, a threat to both their worlds, who can only be stopped by the player. To defeat Typhon, players must overcome challenges, uncover lost secrets and gain favor with factions to maximize knowledge and strength.
Underworld Ascendant boasts robust player-authored gameplay that encourages and rewards experimentation within a constantly evolving environment that reacts dynamically to player choices. Each decision holds the potential for great opportunity or grave consequences. Players can mix and match dozens of combat, stealth and magic skills to develop their unique style of play and devise clever plans to overcome challenges as they navigate the foreboding Stygian Abyss.
Underworld Ascendant is now available for $29.99 USD on Steam for PC, published by 505 Games. Players can purchase the game from the Steam Store now at: http://store.steampowered.com/app/692840.
