Amiga fans rejoice as a brand spanking new Amiga game called Scourge of the Underkind is coming out soon.
How Did Scourge of the Underkind Come About?
The game is the brainchild of Amiga fans Wayne Ashworth who’s based in the UK and Swedish programmer Magnus Tegström who met via YouTube back in 2014 after Wayne saw his skills in action in a video of and got in touch with him and thus Eleventh Hour Games was born.
This meeting of minds has culminated over the years in this stunning looking game that for many of us Retroheadz has a Chaos Engine look and feel to it and a game that is close to completion and come to market.
What’s The Story?
Scourge of the Underkind is and action adventure game that’s is based in a fantasy medieval setting.
You rid the dungeons or the hordes of hideous creatures that dwell in the labyrinth like underbelly and villages throughout the land.
You have a host of weapons, power ups and tools to help you get the job done and as mentioned it take a lot of cues from classics like the Chaos Engine and Alien Breed.
