I just meant that I don't want people to think of Kivi's Underworld as a sequel to DoP since they are very different games.

No trouble from us. I think it's cool that you made Kivi's in the same world as DoP. It feels like I have some connection to that game even though they are not sequel/prequel.

I don't think it's so much a spin off, as a different game in the same world, in the same way that all the marvel comics exist within the marvel universe but each stands on it's own without the others.

Different game in the same world would qualify as spin-off.

Nah, it doesn't include any of the characters that actually showed up, or quite likely any of the items.

I believe you'll find if you read the stories that Kivi was part of the original exploratory party that realeased the hordes of evil upon the world. Unless I'm mistaken. At any rate he played a large part of it, as you'll read in the eponymous 'Depths of Peril' story.

So unless this is a descendant or namesake, and from the description I get the distinct impression it's not, then you could probably call it a prequel. Albeit in apparently different style and most likely of more fulfilling quality than other famous prequels.

Hm, maybe a spin-off prequel? Or a prequel spin-off? The plot thickens!

A spin-off is a new work derived from an earlier work. Actually a prequel is a spin-off. I even wonder if in a way a sequel is a spin-off though it has some strict requirements to be considered a sequel.

In the case of Marvel, a new story set in that universe could be considered a spin-off because it reuses the universe though most of the time each big city where the characters operate is sufficiently different from the others yet you still know they are connected. When characters from one storyline meet those of another, it's a crossover.

Kivi then seems more like a spin-off as it is based on DoP, reuses the same universe, will have similar game mechanics (hack and slash) but will play differently (more story-driven, more classes but simplified, etc.) at least from what I understood so far. Also it can be hard to decide how to classify games as there are the games mechanics and the story to consider. Here for exemple we have the same universe but different timelines and game mechanics.

You know what? I'm getting a headache... I shouldn't post when I'm tired.
