    With luck, we will have an "agenda-based brofist" button this time.

    Underrail is a thing of beauty. When the name changed from Timelapse Vertigo to Underrail, I was disappointed as the latter sounded rather generic in comparison at first but, after having played the game multiple times, I find that the name fits the game like a glove. And there aren't many games that I get an urge to -and then I actually do- play a second time, let alone a third or fourth. Underrail is a gigantic accomplishment in gameplay.

    However, I think it might be wise to draw a line at Fallout comparisons. Underrail is so much more at what it does than Fallout, but also not quite at a similar level of writing and C&C.

    But it's not just that either. Underrail feels fundamentally different than Fallout to me. It's a modern iteration of old traditions while being a new breed. Perhaps that is the key word. The game feels brand fucking spanking new the way Fallout felt brand fucking spanking new when it came out. Very few games have that.

    In the interest of impartiality, I feel this quality Steam review should also be included:

    I bought it on steam to support the developer, but I'm going to wait until full release to actually play it

    The game's so massive, I wouldn't worry about spoiling much by indulging yourself with a little ol' playthrough. You know it's a great game when you spend 40 hours on the "alpha" and it's still the game you're most excited to see released.

    I bought this game long ago around when it first changed names to Underrail, 2012ish. Even then it was damned impressive and comparisons to Fallout ring true. This is the real deal. The developer is quietly and steadily building up what might be a masterpiece when it's done. This puts big developers with big budgets and small ideas to shame.:incline:

    I so cannot wait for the release, I have it in my library but haven't tried it so far since I do not want to spoil the fun but really this seems to be the best game of the incline-wave.

    Fired up the game. It's been a while since I've been this positively overwhelmed by a character creation's screen.
    I don't know if I'll be able to wait the release to play it.

    Ok, bought it. If it's only half as good as advertised here, Styg gives it away way too cheap.

    Game is amazing, love it. Haven't played the latest iterations in a while tho.
    Bought it once, will do so again once it's finished or near enough.

    Excelent review Blaine. I can't wait for Styg to finish it. Played a very early alpha (as soon as he started selling it) and already seen how good it was and how much potential it had. I'm glad that's becoming even better than I expected and Styg should take his time to finish it, hopefully he will get enough of money influx from sales to be able to perfect it to the detail. I'm guessing it will be like when I first ran Fallout 1.

    This should be going for about $30 or so. The game is a steal. Absolutely fantastic.

    That was my thought as well and actually made me hesitate somewhat thinking "At $9.99, surely the game is more like a super simple, ~5 hour long demo." Not so. The game swings with all the other RPGs of the recent :incline: if not besting a few, IMO.

    Also, was this review an inside job?
