Hello old games lovers,

Today we celebrate one of the best games of 1992, universally praised especially for its visuals, its gameplay and the non-linear plot, Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss that this months turns 25.

It’s one of the first an most importants RPG that featured 3D graphics. A lot of details of the game set new levels for 3D RPGs (but not only RPGs): for example the possibility to look up and dowd that today seems a standard requirement in every game was mastered for the first time here.

In the end the game sold more that 500k units, a more than respectable number for a rather niche PC game.

So all hail to Stygian Abyss!
