'Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos' Gets Early Access Update, Joins European Week Against Cancer

by Rainier on May 25, 2021 @ 5:23 a.m. PDT

Ultimate ADOM is a traditionally-inspired reimaging of the beloved rogue-like dungeon crawler genre and features endless procedurally generated dungeons, monsters, and crafting options, allowing for ultimate replayability.

The original ADOM was a groundbreaking title that set the standard for dungeon crawler roguelike games, and Caverns of Chaos is bringing those ideas to the 21st century with a host of awesome new features that take advantage of modern hardware.

Evil has been vanquished. Peace has returned to Ancardia, and the peasants dare to dream once more of prosperity. Seven very different factions vie for control over the cataclysmic aftermath left behind by Andor Drakon’s defeat. And somewhere, deep down in an inhospitable cave, ChAoS is stirring again.

Pick up your blade, prepare your spells, check your daggers and ready your bow, for you are about to enter the ominous Caverns of Chaos. Choose your allegiance carefully, for you are nothing more than an expendable asset to the masters you choose.

Fight for a mercenary's glory and a hefty coin purse, for the justice of a community in decline, for the light of purity, or even for chaos itself. Every choice you make will determine how you approach the ever-changing Caverns of Chaos laid out before you.

Content creators who stream the “modern-meets-classic” roguelike dungeon crawler Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos are invited to donate to ‘The International Agency for Research on Cancer’ (IARC).

EWAC runs until May 31 and sees European policy-makers and the public engage in activities designed to educate people about cancer prevention, access to treatment, and provide support for both current patients and survivors. The publisher is joining the fight and will donate 10% of the proceeds of every ‘Save the World Edition’ of Ultimate ADOM - Caverns of Chaos to the IARC. Assemble Entertainment will also start a stream today at 11:00 am EDT / 8:00 am PDT on their official Twitch and YouTube channel.
