How did you find out about this game?
« on: August 25, 2012, 03:03:29 PM »
I'm sure the creators of the games would be interested about this as well, but I too am generally curious about it.

I found this game through one of my favourite Let's Players, PlumpHelmetPunk and he did a video on the alpha demo. I can't say he really did amazing at the demo for his second try, but it was enough to get me hooked on it, the video can be found here.

Now, how did you find out about Underrail?

I honestly can't remember. It might have been on Rock Paper Shotgun... but I am not sure.

Then I started spreading the word on all forums I contribute to.

Found out about the game through the codex's recent posting about the alpha.

I love the work you've been doing here; this looks like a good month killer.

I'm pretty sure I found out from no mutants allowed. I'd provide links to the most recent news post regarding the demo release of UR, but it looks like the site is currently having trouble.

www.nma-fallout.com/

From what I read earlier there was some positive reception.

However, I did learn about UR quite awhile ago, so its hard to tell if NMA was my original source or if it was rock paper shotgun. I can't find anything regarding UR on RPS tho.

EDIT: NMA seems to be back up - Link to UR impressions thus far below

It was PlumpHelmetPunk for me too.  I also saw this thread on reddit.
I record myself playing video games for the Internet.

I'm not sure, but probably www.nma-fallout.com, rampantgames.com/blog, indierpgs.com or www.rpgcodex.net, when it was still Timelapse Vertigo.

Waiting on game patches to be released for any game is more frustrating then waiting for ya wife to roll over and die on you. Ya never know it might happen on a patch day.

I first saw it on Rock Paper Shotgun, before even the demo came out - it was a article on name change I think. Then few days ago Lethal Feline did his stream and I saw it on YT. After that it was a matter of time before I downloaded demo and began to play ;)

Someone posted about this game on the Bay12 forums (www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=115351), home of the other great alpha-stage (perpetually alpha stage. I first hear about it in high school, and have since graduated from college) game of our age- Dwarf Fortress. This might not seem important, but I figure more people will check out your game on advice from people they know ("know" on the internet, but still) then by reading some article on a review site. (So it's important to talk to people on other forums.)

via a german games magazine (http://www.pcgames.de/Indie-Games-Thema-239276/News/Underrail-Old-School-Rollenspiel-erinnert-an-Fallout-und-Metro-2033-1020615/)

When I looked the first time into this forum I was surprise by the low amount of users/threads. I hope more people get to know about this game. In it's core I had much more fun playing this demo than any "AAA" game of recent years...
