Delver is a project inspired by Notch’s ‘Prelude of the Chambered’, which aims to blend the mechanics of Ultima Underworld with the playability of a roguelike.
This project kind of intrigues me. Back in the day, Ultima Underworld didn’t hold my attention the way it did some. Because it didn’t follow the familiar formula and top-down perspective, it didn’t seem like an Ultima. And I’ve never really played the rogues. But I’ve often wished for a really great first-person dungeon crawl; this might become just the ticket.
