New release: Swords and Sorcery – Underworld Gold

OlderBytes has released Swords and Sorcery – Underworld Gold, a first-person turn-based dungeon-crawler reminiscent of older Might and Magic games.

If there is a plot, the game’s page doesn’t mention it. The developer describes the game as follows:

Swords and Sorcery – Underworld Gold is a kickback to the 80s dungeon crawler, featuring old school party creation, adventuring, storyline, turn-based tactical combat with spells, skills, tactical options and hundreds of mystical, sharp or bludgeoning loot…
You’ll need them to survive over 100 monsters… And THEIR spells, skills, tactical options…

I’m pretty sure he means “throwback” and not “kickback” (unless there’s an illicit world of 80s dungeon crawlers extorting money from indie developers that I’ve never heard about)–but otherwise, that description sounds pretty good to me. Check out the trailer below to see the game in action:

Swords and Sorcery – Underworld Gold is Windows-only, and available for $19.99. Buy the full game here, or try out a free demo right here.
