Castle Story patch 0.3.4 is ready.

Hello everyone. In the past days we received a lot of tickets and comments about some instability while loading games, starting games, etc on Big Island. The bad thing was it actually never really crashed in the same spot. After lots of investigation we think we figured out the reason of all those random crashes. There was of lot of stability fixes in the new Unity Player Engine for 64 bit (our engine).

While it fixed the crashes we were able to reproduce, there could still be some left and we’ll eventually need your crash dumps to investigate. A big thanks to the user Malidictus for his time and help which enabled us to pin down the issue.

Also, some people shared that they prefered the pre-0.3.0 look. We have a feature in the options menu (in the main menu) which you can use to toggle between the previous and current assets.

Here are the bugs fixed in this patch:
  • Fixed a bug that a stockpile would accept multiple resources at the same time.
  • Fixed a Lumber Task loading bug.
  • Fixed multiple V2 Bricktron loading bugs.
  • Fixed some stability issues with 64 bit version of the game.

Thanks again for all your feedback and bug reports!

Castle Story patch 0.3.3 is ready, with another small feature.

Hello everyone, we’ve been working hard for the last days and we fixed some other issues.

We also introduced at the same time a small feature to the stockpile. It will now accept blue crystal pieces, so that you can build further away from the main blue (big) Crystal. The old bricktron will still prioritize the blue (big) Crystal albeit at a certain range.

Here are the bugs fixed in this patch:
  • Usability fix to the Big Island.(Leveled terrain for better construction)*
  • Fixed some issues in the construction task for the New Bricktron.
  • Fixed an issue where the corruptrons weren’t attacking the Crystal.
  • Fixed lumber Task bug when loading with the New Bricktron.

Thanks again for all your feedback and bug reports!

- Team Sauropod

*Only applies to new game in Big Island, not save games.

Про цю гру

Castle Story is a creative voxel-based strategy game in which you can build castles one brick at a time using an army of little characters called Bricktrons.

Your goal will be to explore a vast landscape full of mysteries and dangers, and defend your castle against onslaughts of hostile creatures and possibly other players.

The world of Castle Story takes place on flying islands, high above an infinite ocean. The islands are made of voxels, cubes made of various elements, which means you can dig, carve and build anything you can imagine in the landscape. Digging underground to gather resources, stacking bricks on top of each other to build a wall or even tunnelling through a mountain is all possible and even necessary to keep your Bricktrons safe.

Carefully designing your castle not only requires creativity and imagination, but thanks to pathfinding AI and physics simulations, Castle Story has layers of strategy and depth on top of an otherwise free-form sandbox experience.

Castle Story will be released for Windows & Mac (with possible Linux support once Unity4 is released).

Key Features


  • Build any structure you can imagine! Using 2x1 blocks, create structures that are not only good-looking, but also functional. Your Bricktrons need to be able to navigate your castle to build it and to keep the monsters out!
  • Physics! Watch a tower crumble to the ground realistically when its foundations can no longer support it. The entire world obeys to the laws of physics which means that you need to build cleverly so your castle can withstand attacks from projectiles and explosives.
  • Sandbox! Build a huge sprawling fortress, a single impenetrable bunker or a network of underground tunnels. The choice is yours. Castle Story rewards imagination and ingenuity.
  • Strategy! Command your Bricktrons as they build your castle brick by brick. Manage the way they work, what resources they gather, and the places they explore. Use your resources to build weapons and armor for your Bricktrons and all kinds of upgrades for your castle.
  • Combat! Using shields, swords, bows and lots more, your Bricktrons can defend themselves against the hostile creatures inhabiting the world of Castle Story. Lead your Bricktrons through tough fights, and use your wits to gain an advantage. You can even build catapults to rain destruction on your foes!
  • Magic! The world of Castle Story is permeated with all kinds of magic. Discover resources with magical auras and learn to mix them to create effects. Explore strange places and find mysterious artifacts left behind by unknown civilizations.

This game cost me $20 USD or so, and gave me 113 hours of enjoyment. That's over five hours of play per dollar -- certainly more than I've gotten out of some AAA titles that cost me three times that much. It was a fun little game.

So why the thumbs down? Well, because despite being a somewhat *fun* game, it's not a *complete* game. And at this point it is not clear to me that the game will EVER be complete.

The devs posted this disclaimer long ago: http://www.sauropodstudio.com/steam-early-access-disclaimer/ stating the features that work and those that are planned. The disclaimer is pretty accurate, it doesn't lie about what's working and what's not. The problem is that the "what's working" list has not grown by a single item since I bought the game -- litterally the ONLY feature of any note that has been added was a pause function -- which would have been greatly appreciated if I hadn't worn out the gameplay many months ago -- but they haven't made any visible progress towards that complete feature set they said they were planning.

Some of this is understandable. It's a young studio, this is their first game and the developers are less experienced than those on a lot of other games. They made some early mistakes and had to refactor the code base, which took a long time. Normally, refactoring (while frustrating for end users because it consumes time with no new features) is useful because it reduces future bugs and makes implementing new features later much easier. But these things only matter if you RELEASE UPDATES after the refactoring.

As I said, this is the studio's first game, and as you can see it's not going super well. It's entirely possible that they are out of money and about to go bankrupt for all I know. So it's impossible to say when or even if this game will get another update, or if a hypothetical update would even contain any significant improvements.

So while it really boils down to the typical early access mantra of "Only pay for it if you are happy with the CURRENT state of the game", and while the current state of the game WAS worth the money I paid for it, I can't really recommend this game because I know that most people are less easy to please than I am, and want a finished product. This game may never be that.

How many early-access games have been abandonded? Towns? Spacebase? Castle Story? I'm sure there are tons more. I HATE how steam allows them to be sold still. My patience and willingness to support for early games has been used up. I wish there was a way to get my money back for those crap titles!!!

Utterly unplayable. There's been little to no progress since its Early Access release and I only wish there was some way to make them accountable and force them to return the money made on the sales of their product. This game is nothing short of a con.

Game showed a lot of promise during Kickstarter. However actual development post kickstater has been minimal. Haven't played more than eough to get frustrated and uninstall every few months. I have moved on to other fort building games.

Worth the Wait
This game has so much potentional! When I first saw the game on steam I was immediately interested. The only problem with the game is that it is still in early access. This recent update has given me hope that the devs are not going to abandon this game. Bugs and all the game is still enjoyable. If you live controling people and playing sandbox games, than this is definetly for you!

Please note this game IS still in beta, so it won't be perfect.

Currently it is not playable due to a horrible AI. Bricktons get stuck every minute and stop working until you assign new tasks via trial and error.
A new AI is in the making (regarding the developer posts) but until this proves sufficient don't buy it except you believe in the devs very strongly

I regret buying this. I thought my money would help them make updates but it's been over a year and there has literally been no major changes. The current game IS NOT A QUALITY PRODUCT. DO NOT BUY.

What works in this game? Pretty much nothing.
And for a game that has been in "early access" for over a year, that's disgraceful.
Don't waste your money.

I really do love this game because of its creativity. However the devs, who after 1 update decided to practically abandon it make it not worthwhile to play.

This game has a good idea going on but it does not do a good job of building on to that idea in order to make the game interesting and fun. The controls are too complicated and it really isn't fun. I played the tutorial and started to doubt if I should have bought the game or not. Until this game gets better and is actually fun to play for a longish period of time to keep the players hooked, you should be ABSOLUTELY sure you want to buy this game before purchasing it!

After playing the latest patch (The one claiming to fix the unit pathfinding issues) I can honestly say I am giving up on this game. It is a great concept and I truely hope the developers see it through but after their boasts that they fixed the pathfinding issues I can honestly say that it is clear they did not test this patch for more than 15 minutes because after about this long playing you will spend more time trying to fix anything that causes your units to get hung up. Which is just about anything. If the developers actually fix this pathing issues add new gameplay content to this game (something they have not really done in at least a year.... ( well excluding the halloween unit skins -__- )) I will gladly change and rewrite this review.

I highly advise against buying this game!!!! The developers don't ever update the game and they never fix the glitches and bugs (which are plentiful). The A.I. is horrible and the characters are almost always running into each other and just randomly standing in the way for like 7 seconds at a time. I am pretty sure that the people who made this game took the money and ran. Don't buy this game unless you want to regret spending $20.

This is before the Holiday update, but the game is enjoyable. Don't fixate on developers or lack of updates, enjoy building a giant freaking castle and defending it from moving rock people. Ask a kid about minecraft he'll talk for an hour, ask him about Notch and he'll shrug.

I bought the game to play Multiplayer with a friend. Unfortunately after 3 years of development this game is still completely broken.

Why can't an i7 system with 12gb of ram, a gtx760 and an ssd run a basic small map past 20 blocks before it lags out completely?

Maybe in 2016 there will be a playable release.

Good ideas... But don't worth the money spent for.
It's Steam sales for Christmas, and guess what... Developpers haven't made so much updates since few days than during all past year. Don't believe there is any regular developpment to improve the game.
My advice: wait some years and maybe this game, when finished, will worth the money... Which is not the case currently.

Bonnes idées... Mais ne vaut clairement pas le prix demandé.
Ce sont les soldes Steam de noël et devinez quoi... Les développeurs n'ont jamais fait autant de mises à jours depuis quelques jours que durant toute l'année qui s'est écoulée. Ne pensez pas que le développement pour améliorer le jeu soit régulier.
Mon conseil: attendez encore quelques années et peut-être que le jeu, une fois terminé, en vaudra la peine... Ce qui n'est pas le cas actuellement.
