    "Paul Neurath, a veteran of games like Ultima Underworld and the former co-founder of System Shock and Thief developer Looking Glass Studios, founded the independent development studio, which acquired the Underworld brand and is looking to hire developers."

    Ahh didn't know about that, might be why they took Ultima out of the name then.

    Kickstarter has been responsible for some pretty great stuff. I think Wasteland 2 and Divinity Original Sin were both on it, also Star Citizen and Shroud of the Avatar.

    All we would need is Kevin Costner and it could become a cult classic some years down the road only recognized for how impossibly bad it was...

    Also excited for Pillars of Eternity, and Shards of course. :D

    Kickstarter is great.
