Dev Log #63: Expedition DLC is Released!

After more than three years of development, it is finally complete.

Whereas the base game began as a one man undertaking and slowly grew from there as people joined the team and steadily settled into their multidisciplinary positions to form the current core team of four, which gives it a recognizable progress of content quality and design; the Expedition is, from start to finish, the work of this, now more experience and skilled team, laid upon a more solid design foundations.

For those who haven't been following the development: Expedition DLC features a huge underground lake on which a secondary campaign takes place. This campaign becomes accessible during the normal course of the play sometime during the mid-game. Here is a more detailed list of features:
  • Around 250 new areas
  • Leveling character past level 25, up to level 30
  • Ability to ride and upgrade many different jet skis that vary by speed, defense, firepower and utility
  • Three new weapon classes - spears, swords, and shotguns; all of these can be crafted and there are also special unique ones
  • New psi school: Temporal Manipulation
  • Just under 80 new feats, some of which are special new veteran feats that get unlocked beginning with level 26
  • Specializations - a new way to improve your character; starting with level 16, a character will gain one specialization point that they can use to improve their feats along one or multiple dimensions
  • New consumables, tools, blueprints, and more
We all put a lot of effort into this huge expansion, and each member of the team really poured his heart out into it, in his own way – through visual, narrative or mechanical aspects, to make sure it's not only big, but also a recognizable labor of love. And because it's often the case that people think that Underrail is till a one man operation, I'll use this opportunity to familiarize you with the Stygian Software core team:
  • Dejan "Styg" Radišić (myself) - lead developer, programming, overral lore and themes, some writing, a bit of everything
  • Stefan "Phrygian Dominant" Čupović - level and quest design, writing
  • Mario "Mac" Tovirac - 2d & 3d art, various design work
  • Nikola "Johnny" Petrović - 3d art, mostly character and creature models
I also want to thank our dedicated fans that helped us thoroughly test the game for bugs and imbalances, as well as build up and maintain useful player resources (wiki, character build tool). Though you come at a price of occasionally having to read through your uncalled for suggestions and complaints, I must admit that all this would be much more difficulty without you.

Once the dust settles, I might do a more detailed piece about my thoughts on the Expedition development – what we did wrong and what we did right. I'll also talk more about our future plans then.

In the meantime, if you enjoyed the base game, please head over to the store page and purchase the Expedition DLC.


If you are new to the game, you might be interested in the bundle option that allow you to acquire the base game and the expansion together at a small discount:


Also, the release will be pushing the new version of the base game ( to the live branch as well. For the full list of changes see the previous dev log and add the items below to it:

  • When returning to an area after fleeing it during combat, your initiative penalty will be -1000 (up (or down?) from -10)
  • Cryokentic Orb can now counts towards fulfilling Hypothermia's psi ability requirement
  • Lifting belt now increases carry capacity by 30, but the mechanical damage reduction is changed to 5% (down from 10%)
  • Changed the riot gear mechanical damage resistance and threshold bonuses against melee attacks to 100% (up from 75%). Will be applied retroactively.
  • Riot gear will now receive flat mechanical damage threshold of 2. Will be applied retroactively.
  • Tweaked the description of ballistic panels to better fit their use in different armors (will not be retroactively applied to already crafted items)
  • Listed starting action and movement points in the combat stats window
  • Fixed the bug that sometimes caused player to receive fear status effect (though it doesn't affect player in any way)
  • Fixed the bug that caused the item immunity effects to appear as though they are not being applied in the tooltip (darkened label) even if they were
  • Thermodynamic Destabilization no longer ignites targets on explosion when invoker doesn't have the Pyromaniac feat
  • Chill and freeze status effects will now always properly remove burning effects
  • Cryogas will no longer affect characters that are immune to chilling

That's all for now, guys. Cheers.

Dev Log #62: Experimental Branch with Version

Hi guys,

In preparation of the expansion release, we're releasing a new version of the base game (on which the current testing version is running on) to make sure that no major breaking bugs have been introduced.

To play experimental branch on Steam, you right click the game in your library and go to "Betas" tab. To do so on GOG, you select the game and choose More->Settings. Make sure you don't override all your live version saves just in case something goes horribly wrong.

Here are the patch notes:

  • Added the ability to speed up the game while out of combat
  • Added achievements to the GOG Galaxy version
  • Kneecap shot bleeding percentage no longer scales from perception, but base bleeding damage percentage changed to 125% (up from 75%)
  • Unarmed and fist weapon attacks now incur 140% of target's damage threshold and resistance (up from 125%)
  • Increased the damage reduction factor of resolve against neural overload
  • Resolve will now reduce the damage received from doppelgangers
  • Changed the way the burning damage stacks (in cases when it stacks) - the new burning time left equals either the time left of the existing effect or the duration of the new effect - whichever is longer; the old and the new periodic damage are adjusted so that they produce the same total damage over time; one of the major effects of this change is that you can no longer increase the amount of original damage by constantly resetting the timer
  • Separated fear effect caused by burning into a separate status effect and limited it to 2 turns regardless of how long the burning lasts (or if it's extinguished early); this will prevent the fear from lasting too long either from a long burning effect or because of the burning effect being refreshed; also this fear only occurs when a non-burning target is ignited and not when burning is being prolonged/refreshed
  • Throwing nets now last up to 2 turns (down from 3) and have a cooldown of 4 turns (up from 3)
  • Bullets have new icons
  • Increased the chance to entangle enemies when firing acid blob pistol
  • Increased the chance to freeze enemies when firing cryo blob pistols
  • Reduced the chance to ignite enemies when firing incendiary blob pistol; the total burning damage done from igniting the target will remain the same, but will be spread over more turns (one turn per each
  • 80% of the original damage repeated)
  • Reduced the weight of chemical ammo
Nice Things
  • Containers that you opened once will now have darker labels
  • Organic enemies that die while burning will now be smoking and appear charred
  • HE grenades and some other explosions will leave temporary marks on the ground
  • Gas clouds will now fade in/out
  • New barrels
  • Fixed the bug that would allow player to cancel leveling up without being able to reattempt it
  • Fixed the problem that caused the items to take up weird positions in the filtered inventory when the player attempted to reorder them manually
  • Cut Throat no longer bypasses stun immunities
  • Corporeal Projection feat now has a proper icon (instead of using the one from Fast Metabolism)
  • Throwing knife will now again properly play impact sounds and effects
  • Fixed the bug that caused expertise to add the damage bonus for each separate mechanical damage listed for the weapon, instead of just once (you thought I'd never find out, did you?!)
  • Fixed the hole jump crash in Institute
  • Heavyweight will now always apply before Critical Power
  • Certain giant appendages can now be hit by cryokinetic orb
  • Changed the way the cryokinetic orb shards interact with the orb impact tile so now the creatures occupying the tile can also get hit by some of them
  • Punching bags will no longer bleed when you punch them
  • Global entities (those that can travel between maps) will now also have their suspicion meter drain with time
  • Incendiary chemical pistol burning effect will now stack damage with existing burning effect
  • Fixed the Nimble bug that would in certain situation give bonus movement points
  • Various minor map and dialog bugs

That's it. Let us know how you like the changes.
