    The beleaguered Underworld Ascendant comes out in ten days and OtherSide are doing their best to give it a good sendoff. The launch trailer released today looks fairly polished, although it can't hide how limited an experience the game ultimately is.


    Alongside the trailer, several websites have published previews of Ascendant with a good amount of detail about its mechanics. They're much more positive in nature than the E3 build previews from earlier this year, though the previewers all seem to be unaware that the factions of the Abyss won't actually physically exist in the game. Here are the links:

    OtherSide would also like you to know about their launch week bonus items, which you can read about on Ascendant's updated Steam page. We don't care much about that stuff, but apparently Kickstarter backers will receive better versions of those.

    Video games didn't use bloom yet in the early 90s.

    No. Instead it had a host of antiquated features like save-everywhere, a savegame system that stored quest progress, an interconnected dungeon, and NPC dialogues. UA gives us bloom and parkour instead :salute:

    Can't even bring myself to shit on this. Everything about this game seems to be in such a sorry state that I just feel bad for everyone involved.

    Wish there was any reason to be optimist about this.
    Personally everything i've seen so far is making me brace for disaster.

    So its gonna make BT4 release look like a roaring success?

    I know its cool and edgy to hate on these kickstarter projects, and as much as I enjoy kicking someone when they are down this is actually just sad and depressing...

    Really wanted this to turn out good, yet with every video of the same exact area shown since the very start, it somehow manages to look worse and worse. Oh well, maybe it will at least prove to be somewhat innovative in terms of gameplay mechanics.

    Trailer looks good though, better and more polished than the footage we've seen before.

    This is like Decline Incarnate and the worst thing is that the original creator and designer from Ultima Underworld are the ones behind this piece of shit

    Pretty much a trend with all these Kickstarters nostalgia projects, our heroes of old are actually washed up has beens.

    I want to like this but what the fuck is with these terrible trailer voice-overs? If you can't spring for a talented voice actor, just use text. Jesus H. Fucking Christ.
