Underworld Ascendant Is Funded

Two years ago, if you'd asked me how a spiritual Ultima Underworld sequel made by assorted Origin/Looking Glass veterans would fare on Kickstarter, I'd have said "funded in 60 seconds!" then smiled smugly. In 2015, that really doesn't happen unless you're a funny watch or a card game about weapons of mass kitty destruction. It looked a little touch and go for Underworld Ascendant for a while there, but it's now crossed its $600k finish line with a few days to spare.

...I was going to write a bunch of other stuff about Underworld, but I just found out while I was working on this post that the wonderful Leonard Nimoy has died. This was supposed to be a celebratory post, but now I am very sad. This is the loss of someone truly iconic. I shall revisit Civilization IV and his note-perfect narration of it in his honour.

Congratulations to Otherside Games. I'm glad you to get to make this game, and I'm sorry for making this a post about something else.
