Underworld Adventures - Ultima Underworld engine recreation

Post by MrFlibble »

I just learned about Underworld Adventures, an open source engine recreation project for Ultima Underworld which seems to be quite obscure for some reason. It was indefinitely suspended in 2007 but a quick check suggests that the latest build is quite functional. It supports both the full version and the demo. The project also includes a high-quality music pack.

Some screenshots:

A visit to the Ultima: The Reconstruction website revealed a few more engine recreations of Ultima Underworld:
o Abysmal Engine
o The System Shock Hack Project

Both aim to support System Shock as well as UU, and both appear long abandoned.
