Game designer Paul Neurath (Thief, System Shock 2, Ultima Underworld) is no longer at Zynga Boston, thank goodness. He's just founded a new studio, OtherSide Entertainment, to return to the influential Underworld property with a new game hoping to "revitalize the fantasy genre in the same way its predecessor did in 1992," according to this morning's announcement.

Details are limited for now, but the project is called Underworld Ascension. "With the reboot we're going right back to innovating, and our goal is to make the franchise more vital than ever," writes OtherSide. "We are just getting started so little to see as yet, but rest assured, in the weeks to come we will be showing more and more."

Curiously, the studio says it's "focused on rebooting classic game franchises." Assuming Ascension does well -- and even though much has changed in the past 20 years, Underworld conceivably can still do well -- there could be much more to look forward to.

Indigo Prophecy gets an HD trailer, downed Amazon page

Hey, Indigo Prophecy is looking pretty good. I wish this remaster would've picked a name and stuck to it, though. Calling it Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy is just kind of messy and goes against na...more
