Underrail is an old school turn-based isometric indie role playing game that focuses on exploration and combat. It's inspired by western RPG classics such as Fallout, Arcanum, Neverwinter Nights and System Shock 2.


The game is set in a distant future, when the life on the Earth’s surface has long since been made impossible and the remnants of humanity now dwell in the Underrail, a vast system of metro station-states that, it seems, are the last bastions of a fading race.


  • Great character customization possibilities through stats, skills, feats, items and more that allows for many different play-styles
  • Tactical turn based combat that utilizes weapons, energy shields, grenades, psi abilities and more
  • Vast underground world to explore: city states, abandoned building complexes, natural caverns, secret areas and more
  • Elaborate item crafting system

Hey guys, the new version has been released. For a preview of what's new you can check out this and past four dev logs.

Underrail - Rail Crossing Underrail - Rail Crossing
Underrail - Rail Crossing Underrail - Rail Crossing

You will now be able to travel a bit through Lower Underrail, either on foot or by train, and explore the town of Rail Crossing and the surrounding areas and face new types of enemies. The main story of the game starts in earnest with this patch, but I'm not going to spoil anything regarding that in this log :).

I also did a lot of polishing of existing game mechanics and added some new ones, as well as did a fair amount of economical re-balancing. After these couple days of internal testing I feel quite content where we're at now in that regard and while there surely be some more tweaking done in the future, I don't expect to do any major work on the existing mechanics in the future. With the future patches we will mostly be focusing on adding more content at a faster rate, which will as always include more areas, quests, enemies, items, feats, etc.

Anyway, have fun guys and let us know what you thought of the changes and the new stuff. Cheers.

Ok, I tried, but... in my game collection, there's my Underrail Alpha, but I can't find any "key" section. What did I do wrong ?

The game tends to freeze when the window loses focus for more than a minute. Definitely gotta fix that before I'll consider buying it.

Been wanting to pick this up for quite some time, and finally did. One quick question about it. I did some looking around, but didn't see what I was looking for, which is, roughly how far along are you? 30%? 50%?
Not too concerned, just curious.

Hello StygSoft,
Just a slightly random question, but have you ever considered (perhaps as an expansion or sequel) making an "Overrail" area, as in travelling to the surface of the Underrail earth?

I have. As you suggested, it might happen in an expansion or sequel, but not in this game.
