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.

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
