Paul Neurath and Warren Spector were at the annual SXSW media conference in Austin this week to promote Underworld Ascendant. Today they participated in a hour-long panel discussion about Ascendant organized by PC Gamer and streamed live on Twitch. It was a decent enough discussion, but there wasn't much new there if you've been following the game's monthly development updates. They go over the design principles, features, development anecdotes, etc. What little I did find noteworthy about the panel you can read about here. It does start out with a brief new gameplay teaser, though.

The next week looks like it'll be a busy one for Ascendant. According to a forum post by OtherSide's community manager, there's going to be another trailer of some sort in the coming days, to be followed by a new monthly development update. It also reveals that the game will be reaching alpha within the next two months or so.

Wew... that certainly was a cringeworthy Q&A session.
I can only imagine what it feels like to have the host translate your autistic mumbling into a proper question for Spector/Neurath.

Anyway, I'm still cautiously optimistic about this one. Even though it seems like they're trying to make Thief+Physics Puzzles.
Not tlike I would turn that down, but it doesn't really seem like an Underworld game.

Trailer has some performance issues, as usual. But what worries me more is that we haven't seen anything from the factions so far. Or any major RPG element beyond the (kinda clunky) combat for that matter.
2018 might be a little too optimistic for a release date. Unless they cut quite a bit of content.
