Underrail trailer shows a little bit of Fallout, Metro 2033, a whole bunch of awesome

Back in December, Stygian Software's indie isometric RPG Underrail released its alpha version on Desura and GamersGate. Apart from having a title one letter shy of a catchy deodorant brand, the game boasts clear inspirations from classics like Fallout and Arcanum in an underground tunnel setting smacking of Metro 2033. I'm cuckoo for that combo. Stygian finally has a proper trailer to show it all off, and it's a fair heap of (alpha quality) content on offer for just $10.

Underrail - Arcanum meets Metro 2033 - is available to alpha-buy now

Underrail is an isometric, post-apocalyptic roleplaying game inspired by Fallout, Arcanum and even System Shock 2, which is almost the perfect sentence until you add the part that it's set in a series of underground train tunnels, which pretty much makes it Metro 2033: the isometric RPG. Now it's the perfect sentence, and - to my tastes - probably the most enticing game summary I've come across lately, so I'm just going to let that sink in while I download the alpha demo of the game.
