The developers of indie game UnderRail have announced that the game will be released, in its’ full form, on December 21.
UnderRail, an isometric role-playing game with an old-school style, has been available in early access on Steam since late 2012. The game is now preparing for a full release. “Thank you all for being patient with us throughout the years, the long wait is now at an end,” the developers wrote in a post on Steam.
UnderRail is inspired by the older Fallout games, providing a focus on exploration and turn-based combat. The setting is a post-apocalyptic Earth, where humans were forced to move underground after the surface became uninhabitable. This aspect is clearly similar to Fallout, as is the focus on controlling a single character rather than a group of people.
The price will be increased when UnderRail is fully finished. The developers said that “the game has, since, grown in scope and quality far beyond that of the initial release.” However, it is still available for $10 on Steam before the price increases. The game will be going into closed beta, for the next two weeks, as all the bugs are worked out for the final product. When it is released, it will be available on Steam, GamersGate and GOG.
