About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

UnderMine is an action-adventure, roguelike with a few RPGish elements tossed in.

Delve into the UnderMine as a lowly peasant seeking fortune and freedom. Each journey promises challenge, discovery, riches, and untimely death. That's OK, though, because your belongings will be passed on to the next peasant, who will hopefully do a little better. Use the gold you find to upgrade your character, unlock new abilities, and powerful items that unlock access to new parts of the UnderMine.

Discover friendly and unfriendly characters, some of whom you can befriend to help you in your journey, and the others... well you will just have to deal with them another way. Finally, test your skills and your strategy as you face enormous bosses who will rock your world, because some of them are literal rocks.
