Casually Slashing: Kivi’s Underworld Demo

By John Walker on April 3rd, 2009.

Bashing skellingtons: something non-gamers can only dream of.

We’ve been following streamlined hack-n-slash Kivi’s Underworld since it was first announced, through into beta, and then… Well, like the brain-free wrongminds we so often are, we forgot to tell you when it launched its demo. Fortunately we’re making up for all that now, as a revised demo has been released, and we’re posting about it right now.

Kivi’s Underworld Beta

By Jim Rossignol on October 17th, 2008.


Kivi’s Underworld, the new hack ‘n’ slash from the Depths of Peril chaps, has released an open beta. They’ve asked for any constructive or buggish feedback from playing this to be posted on their forums. Quite a lot of feedback has already turned up, so you might want to take care you’re not repeating other people! Alternatively, you might just want a taste of what is looking like a pretty entertaining indie dungeon crawler. I’ve had quite a bit of fun with it already this morning, and… I really should get back to work.

Get the beta client here, it’s 40mb.

Depths of Perilier: Kivi’s Underworld Announced

By Kieron Gillen on September 29th, 2008.

This seems to be a good time to drag out the old games journo staple of the Pretend They're Dancing Caption. So - er - some dancing. yes.
Makers of RPS-favoured Diablo-meets-Clear Sky RPG Depths of Peril have announced their new “thing”. It’s called Kivi’s Underworld. It’s another action RPG, and seems to be trying to do the pop-thing of mixing accessibility with depth. For the former, the game’s arranged into fifteen-to-thirty minute chunks that can be consumed like a swift healing potion. For the latter, there’s twenty (Count ‘em!) character classes. It also promises a high level of modability, in terms of user-generated characters. More details as they emerge as it approaches its release before the end of the year. Until then, go see Tom Chick interviewing Steven Peeler about what it’s all about.
