Underworld Ascendant is an immersive RPG being produced by OtherSide Entertainment, and during E3 last month we caught up with Paul Neurath and Warren Spector, who explained to us what the game is and how it differs from others that exist in the same space.

"We're trying to take the immersive simulation genre and a little further, so the whole idea is it's you in this alternate world, we confront you with challenges and problems, but you get to decide how you're going to interact with them," Spector said. "So some people find that a little intimidating, and it's not like many other games where you keep moving forward like a shark killing everything that moves and you win; we ask people to think a little bit and decide how they wanna play, what sort of person they wanna be."

Do you like the idea of a game that doesn't hold your hand?
