Underworld Ascendant: Lurker Art Released


Over the past few days, on their Facebook page, OtherSide Entertainment released several small, cropped pieces of a large piece of artwork. Fans were encouraged to guess what the picture depicted.

Yesterday, they revealed the complete artwork, and confirmed what many had guessed: it depicts a Lurker about to prey upon a hapless adventurer. And if you signed up for their mailing list, your probably got this message in your inbox along with the image above:

As promised, here is the art piece that you’ve been guessing about this past week. It is indeed a lurker. We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to building this game with your help.

Don’t forget to spread the word about the Kickstarter launching on Wednesday, February 4th. Also, please stop by the AMA (Ask Me Anything) on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/ at 12AM eastern time to chat with our developers about Underworld old and new.

It’s fitting that the Lurker should be the first creature revealed: as former Looking Glass/Blue Sky developer Dan Schmidt noted in our interview with him, the Lurker was for a time adopted as the unofficial mascot of Blue Sky Studios. They called it the Pond Squid.

    A bit larger than I’d imagined from seeing them in UU. That thing could give Cthulhu a run for his money.

    I couldn’t be happier about any aspect of this piece of art.

    Nice piece! Looks dangerous like Kraken. I don’t know if this huge monster can hide itself as well as the original Lurker (from UUw), though.
