Underworld Ascendant Videos

A new teaser trailer for Underworld Ascendant offers a first look at the upcoming Ultima Underworld sequel in the works at Warren Spector's Otherside Entertainment. There is also a 30 second version of the clip which we guess is a teaser teaser. That is not the only workout they are giving YouTube today, however, as they also offer a new video developer diary titled "Crafting An Immersive Sim." Here's word on the diary, which hears from several members of the team and shows off gameplay footage:
Explore the Improvisation Engine behind Underworld Ascendant, a series of interwoven systems that OtherSide Entertainment has carefully crafted, allowing players to express creativity through playstyle choices in this breathtaking and dangerous fantasy realm.

I really hope they don't focus too much on the physics/platforming puzzle stuff, but they have to expand upon/modernize the gameplay somewhat, so it will be interesting to see what balance they come up with.

I see a lot of "Thief"-like gameplay in that.
And for good reason it's the same people behind it. They do "get" immersive games given the team is mostly ex-Looking Glass, led by the same Paul Neurath.. We can expect top notch gameplay and immersion.

I kickstarted this and tested out the alpha, it looks pretty decent but has a long long long way to go.


The core of this game should be discovery, exploration, and great combat. I hope they focus less on stupid gimmicky stuff, and more about making the game play great.

Definitely intrigued by this game, but the video made me take some pause, looks janky. No matter, we'll see how it is on release.

Gawd I really wish they didn't go with that art style.... it looks like claymation.

Other than that... I hope it's good.

High fidelity art is super expensive, and I think they got maybe less than a million out of their kickstarter?

I am honestly quite impressed with the physics they've put in it. I am very much looking forward to it.

Seems like it needs optimization? Not sure if that was deliberate slow mo in the video, or choppy frames, but other than that it looks pretty cool. I see a lot of "Thief"-like gameplay in that.

It has been so long since the original Ultima Underworld & Underworld II that I cannot really remember them, other than trying to get my poor 486 Laptop to play them. The gameplay in the video reminds me of Thief (and its successive iterations) a lot, which is a good thing. I am hesitantly looking forward to this.

I wanna believe but I'm still not sure about this title. Fingers crossed.
