But as per the release notes - is somewhat rough around the edges. That being said, Underworld Ascendant comes from Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Thief veterans Paul Neurath and Warren Spector and features a large and varied dungeon world to explore and tackle in a number of different ways.

Including stealth, magic, or straight up combat. Described as an "interactive sandbox environment" the varied ways to play extend to the, well, environment itself. Even though it hearkens back to the days of the Utlima series, there's also a Dark Messiah vibe that we love.

Written & directed by Joe Fielder (Bioshock Infinite), Underworld Ascendant takes players back in time to the genesis of role-playing games as they assume the role of ‘The Ascendant,’ summoned to the legendary Stygian Abyss by a mysterious figure called Cabirus. There, they learn of the beast Typhon, a threat to both their worlds, who can only be stopped by the player. To defeat Typhon, players must overcome challenges, uncover lost secrets and gain favor with factions to maximize knowledge and strength.

Underworld Ascendant boasts robust player-authored gameplay that encourages and rewards experimentation within a constantly evolving environment that reacts dynamically to player choices. Each decision holds the potential for great opportunity or grave consequences. Players can mix and match dozens of combat, stealth and magic skills to develop their unique style of play and devise clever plans to overcome challenges as they navigate the foreboding Stygian Abyss.

Stay tuned to AusGamers as we'll be bringing you an interview with Warren Spector and the team behind Underworld Ascendant. Which, again, is out now via Steam.
