Origins of the game

This game was initially named ‘Sottomondo’, developed by L. Ficarra, on a game engine developed on his own and based on Microsoft ASP and Access.

The name of the game derives the literal translation from the Italian: ‘Sottomondo’. Any links between the game’s plot and the Underworld movie, if any, are absolutely incidental.

Initially the aim of the game was basically to find the right key to the bedroom’s door. The game was then was ported to DimensioneX by Cris. Several enhancements were done after that.

This free, playable multiplayer online version of the game has been developed using, and runs on the DimensioneX game engine.

Music

Our game has got a background music feature that enables you to listen to selected MIDI files and MP3 files while playing the game. MP3 music files are played in protected mode by means of a Flash player.
The tracks of the game’s soundtrack have been granted for use in the game by a number of artists that we would like to thank here for their courtesy and quality of work. Click on their website link to learn (and listen!) more about them.
