Underworld Ascendant: $750,000 Raised; Lizardmen Unlocked

Thepa thit tosa!

Bica thepa!

The Underworld Ascendant Kickstarter campaign reached the $750,000 fundraising milestone today, which means that the Lizardmen will be added to the game.

Additionally, as the campaign enters its final day, they’ve re-arranged the stretch goals yet again, moving the enhanced music up within reach of the campaign given its current progress. And they’ve also added a new half-goal:

We’ve been listening to our fans and have decided to move Enhanced Music down from the $850,000 stretch goal to the $800,000 goal, alongside the Companion Creatures. This will help ensure that more music tracks and more elaborate scores are added to the game. The music of the original Underworld games is memorable even to this day, and now we will be able to create music to inspire the next generation of CRPG gamers!

In addition when we get to $775,000, halfway through the Stretch Goal, we will build in the Stygian Abyss a new area, the Necrotic Graveyard. This dark and foreboding locale seems to hold an allure for the various monsters and creatures of the Stygian Abyss who, upon arriving at the graveyard, pass away only to be reanimated as the undead.  It is for the player to learn the purpose in this and to perhaps stop this terrible curse from inflicting the denizens of the Underworld.

It’s no toolkit, but hey…a good dungeon delve deserves a fine, haunting soundtrack.
