    With all the ex-Irrational Games folks it shouldn't be too hard finding new talent for Neurath's new studio.

    Oh damn, fucking awesome. I loved UU. About time somebody filled that niche.

    I suppose a Kickstarter's incoming?

    EDIT: Wish I had some kind of thing to follow about it. Project name, tweeter, anything..

    EDIT 2: Thanks, google!

    Also, I'm not big on the dev history, so can anybody here care to sum up just how substantial this Paul fellow was to the quality of the Underworld games?

    Also, did he happen to work on Arx Fatalis as well?

    What ever happened to Neurath's former studio, Floodgate Studios? Weren't they the co-developer of NWN XP1 and Dark Messiah?

    This potentially doesn't sound good, I really hope Neurath hasn't lost his marbles like oh-so-many veteran game developers and -designes has. They really need to keep it PC only.

    "Ascension" is quite possibly the worst subtitle they could have chosen - for obvious reasons.
    Brilliant news otherwise, time to let them know what made UU so special to prevent them from stumbling along the way.

    Well, my dick is well hard. Will be interesting to see if they manage to actually get it done, though.
