Underrail Dev Log #39: Housing, New Psi, Deep Caverns Preview

So, back in March, it seemed like Underrail was going to be released very soon, in the first half of 2015. Unfortunately, at some point after that, Styg quietly updated the release date on the game's About page again. It now reads "sometime during 2015", though I hope the prediction of a summer release is still relevant. Anyway, since he has more time now, he's been adding more stuff. The latest update on Underrail's development blog offers a glimpse at its final area, the Deep Caverns, informs us of tweaks that have been made to the Psi system and other stuff, and reveals that the game is receiving a rather contemporary new feature. I quote:
Also, we implemented player housing. Players will now get an old ruined apartment in Core City which they can fix up and furnish to their liking. Most of the stuff you can get for the house is just for show, but there is some useful equipment as well.
[...] That's all for now folks. We still have work ahead of us with new content, some gameplay balancing and tweaking, and then finally polishing the game, especially the old areas. I know some of you are really impatient to get your hands on the final release, but please don't ask me for the release date. I don't know and I don't even particularly care at this point. All I can say is it will be out this year definitively! One thing that we do know is exactly what needs to be done, by each of us in the team, for the game to be all it's meant to be at the release, and every day we hammer away at it. So stay patient, dudes.
We'll drop the next dev log when we have more of Deep Caverns to show.
