One of the best things about reporting on video game news is that you get to use sentences like “lizardmen have been unlocked as a stretch goal” without everyone assuming you're insane.
That's exactly what's happened in Underworld Ascendant's, which though already funded well past its campaign goal, is still hoovering up some extra cash in its final few hours.
Underworld Ascendant, industry veteran's return to the first-person dungeon-crawler genre that made his name, has on Steam.
That means should the game reach a $600,000 goal through its Kickstarter campaign, it can be sold via Valve's retail platform. Developer OtherSide has currently raised just over $517,000 with ten days left to go.
The recently announced retro dungeon crawler Underworld Ascendant will feature the gravelly voiced talents of actor Stephen L. Russell, best known for his portrayal ofprotagonist Garrett.
It's not known exactly what role Russell will take on if the game's crowd-funding campaign is successful, but it's not particularly surprising to see him reunite with former members of thedevelopment team.
