We released a big "Update 1" for Underworld Ascendant today! Your game will automatically update on Steam. This update includes a new save system, combat fixes, and more. Read the build notes here.
We also posted a Developer Roadmap of what we were working on for Update 1 and our plans for Update 2 next year. You can check out the roadmap here.
Our CEO Paul Neurath wrote a post for the community of Underworld Ascendant about the development cycle leading up to launch and our plans for the future. You can read that post here.
We also want your feedback about the game, particularly about the updates we made as well as other suggestions for future improvements. Please fill out the survey here!
As we draw closer to the end of the year, we also wanted to update you all on the status of your Kickstarter rewards, particularly the physical ones. You can view the live status of all digital and physical goods here.
We've been coordinating with Fangamer since January to prepare for the majority of the physical goods. Many of the smaller quantity and highly detailed goods, such as the Wood Patron Sceptre and Figurines, took us a little longer to find an external manufacturer for since the size and quantities were so unusual.
We've previously shared images of the box art for the physical editions, but we have not received a sample prototype from Fangamer yet since we’d like to have a complete sample set to review all of the goods at the same time. We're waiting for a final pass on the digital art book, strategy guide, soundtrack, and Making of DVD. As a result, the shipment of the physical goods have been delayed.
We expect physical goods to be shipped sometime in early to mid-2019.
If you need to change your shipping address as listed on your BackerKit account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so we can update your address.
If you are a LORE SEEKER or above ($300+), make sure to check your emails so we can coordinate your customized rewards (custom tabard, custom theme music, custom theme art, etc.).
We'll share another update when we have images of the physical goods and more information about the progress on digital rewards, as well as our next update progress. We will also continue to work on Mac and Linux builds as well as look for a non-Steam DRM-free vendor after our update focus on Underworld Ascendant.
