Castle Story – Update 0.3.7

Hey guys!

Some of you already saw the update on the Bleeding Edge branch but we also pushed this feature on the stable one. We introduce you the Stone Pillar.


This is composed of three different blocks. (Bottom, Middle and Top). There is many different function for the Pillar.
For example, you could use it to help you out with bridges by adding more support to it.

You can also put them inside your Tunnels and which will give a esthetic support for the roof so it won't crumble on your Bricktrons.




How to use it
Simply select the Stone Pillar from the Pie Menu under the Build section and add a base, then by right clicking you can change the type of block (Bottom/Middle/Top).

The dragging block function can also be used horizontally (not vertically) for this type of block.
Finally, if your third block is the top, the Bricktron will be able to reach it even if it's considered ''too high'' by the Castle Story building standards.

Show us what you can make with this and give us your feedback!

Known issues
There's still some corner case with Stone Pillar that we needs to investigated. If you encounter a problem or a particular situation, don't hesitate to share it with us.

“Its promised blend of building and strategy looks great, the kind of thing to rekindle the very fondest of childhood memories...”

“... I’m having a nostalgia rush [...] Castle Story is the first new game that I shall be observing by means of a spyglass each morning throughout 2012.”

Über dieses Spiel

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.

Just don't buy this. There are thousands of better things to do with $20 than buying this game. Buying this game is the same as giving $20 to the begger on the street that leeches on working people and gets drunk every night. You gain nothing from giving them $20 and society gets nothing from giving them $20. Do not do it.

These guys don't work like you and I work for our boss. These guys are the kind that were making Duke Nukem Forever for 20years and still ended up with nothing.
It's very unlikely they are trying to make the game but are the most incompetent people ever. Very likely they are sitting around the office all day playing their Xbox and eating pizza. I don't know how they aren't disgusted with themselves but having millions of dollars from sales in your pocket probably helps a lot.

- The developers are so bad at their job that the first alpha released worked better than the first alpha they brought to Steam. And the current version on Steam works even worse than the first. The game development is going backwards. I know how crazy this sounds yet I'm saying the words with truth.
- All 3years of development so far have been a struggle with making the core of the game. Basic functions are still not completed and many features like remapping keys or full options screen or a working AI pathfinding are still not in the game.
They use Unity3D and all basic game features that you can imagine are nothing more than importing an asset store package and 15min configuration to build it into your own game. These guys fail at using a wizard that has 200 tutorial videos about on youtube. Literally!
Anyone with the capacity to work in a game engine can rebuild to the current state of the game within a month. I know.
- Their artist is working as hard as the rest of the team. All characters and props can be made in 2 weeks after viewing a few hours of Blender tutorials. Everything is modelled and textured extremely simple. You'd think after 3 years they would have more than 1 spruce tree, 1 yellow guy, 1 kind of grey rocks and 1 kind of wood beams/planks? You'd think there would be beaches and mountain ranges and dessert maps etc?
- About a year ago they must have noticed buyers were catching on to their scam. So they hired some guy to full time censor the forums and delete any negative thread and ban any user that speaks any kind of bad about the game. Meanwhile all the new buyers who still genuinly think this game will ever be finished get smoothtalked how busy everyone is and how they have plans to fix and remake everything. After months when that deadline has come and gone, they invent a new deadline.

TLDR: The people from Sauropod are scum.

If you don't believe me, just scroll down the reviews and you can see that nothing I am saying is a lie. These guys are scammers, will shut you up any way they can and Valve is so out of touch with their customers that they don't react to thousands of complaints.

I want to write a good review for this game, I really do. When i bought it i had hoped for a great system to build castles and defend against sieges. But that is not what I got. The AI is messed up, and will do the bare minimum it can to help you build your supposed-to-be-amazing castles 30% of the time, at best. If you wanst to build something that they will actually make, you've got walls. And thats it. Its mechanics are good, with the mining system, and it certainly has potential. Dont get me wrong, make a half decent AI system and ill gladly re-write this review. But they havn't done that. They spend so much hard work on the visuals, that often they have to release new AI systems with little to no improvement. If this game improves in anything other than the visuals then maybe you should buy it. Until then, no. Massive waste of good money.

Don't do it! If you want to waste $20 on something worthwhile go buy banished or heck even get stonehearth or Don't Starve. It's been almost 3 years since this game came out! They surpass the time it took dota 2 to come out of beta. There is no hope that they plan on finishing this and can be reassuringly be declared a dead game. Like by time they finish it half-life 3 will have came out already. That's really slow if valve time is faster than an indie game development... And when i say valve time is faster I mean the developers are extremely slow ,incompetent and aren't willing to communicate with the community go on and read the other reviews it's the same thing over and over but if you want to know about the game besides the opinion review up there go to the next paragraph.

So what they have done in the past 3 years: the AI can barely function correctly, they let out an update once in a blue moon and usually it is the most unhelpful thing, They rarely actually fix anything besides make the problem worse, it has so much potential but with staff like this the game will probably never finish and it probably won't go the correct direction. If you want more reasons:
-multiplayer doesn't work
-the maps themselves suck and only 1 type of map is a survival map
-the other maps are buggy
-the AI stop for long periods of time or just stop completely
-the staff don't really solve any problems in the game
-literally it has been 2 years and nothing has really changed besides adding a pillar...
-the maps you can play and build are floating islands and your resources drop down there 50% of the time
-after xx waves the energy you are supposed to get randomly goes off into the bottom of the map and you never get the energy from them
-the developers probably stopped working on this game to pursue something else so it seems to give off the signal of an abandoned game.

I can go on and on about it so buy this game at your own risk, I am not saying it won't ever get better but if they keep on going this way then it will be safe to say the developers just want your money for half-♥♥♥ work and will probably drag it out as long as they can. You have been warned

Although in its current state it is a pretty interesting game, it will likely not change in the next few years. In two years, there has been two mentionable updates, both of which brought either tiny features, (such as pillars) game breaking bugs (such as the assumed memory leak in the unstable build which forces you to reload the level every ten minutes) or both.
I understand creating games is not easy, even through easy methods, such as game making or scripting programs, but this seriously makes me wonder if they are actually doing any development, or just making YouTube videos to say they are. I doubted Starbound, and they barely pulled through once, but this is far more problematic than slow development; this is avoidance.

My suggestion is to put it on your wishlist, wait about five years, and check again. By that time you will maybe know its fate.

I apologise for my straightforwardness.

Alright listen, this game is a great concept, you read the description and think 'wow, this game looks amazing! I should get this!' and you get it and go 'I cant wait to play this fantastic game! Where is the tutorial?'

You try to play the game and it makes you angrier than trying to deal with those chaps who always use a sniper rifle at close range.

How did this game get such a good review from notch, was he paid?

This game takes the cake, takes a ♥♥♥♥ on the cake, wraps it up with a pair of family guy socks, and gives it to you as a birthday present.

I bought this game a while ago, realised it was bad, waited a year and what has happend? Nothing. jack ♥♥♥♥.

Just dont get this game, spend your money on somthing else,

This game is a huuuuge endoscopy, all the gamepla....wait...there is none. I backed this on KS 2 years ago I think and nothing have changed.
This is still a prototype from 2 kids too busy sniffing coke instead off making a game.
No playable interface, graphics are a shame, pathfinding is out but now we have pillars !!

Please kill me before the next megaenormous update which will add a 2 colours grass..

I bought and played this game more than a year ago, had a lot of fun knowing it was Early Access. Untill know nothing has changed. Believe me when I say "nothing" - there aren't any new blocks, no Bricktrons, maps, even the KI is still very .. dumb. Dont buy this before 2020.

Nicht kaufen!

Wie hier sicherlich schon einige vor mir geschrieben haben passiert hier rein garnichts mehr. Es kommt kein neuer Content zum Spiel. Ich mach 3 Kreuze wen ich die Möglichkeit hätte diesen Kauf rückgängig machen zu können. Von den Endwicklern hört man auch schon seit einiger Zeit nichts mehr. Hätte großes Potenzial und würde massig Spaß machen wen man weiter machen würde.

Es tut sich seit Monaten nichts.
Die Steuerung, die KI, quasi alles ist noch eine Katastrophe.
Diese Entwickler sind der Grund dafür, dass ich in Zukunft sehr vorsichtig mit Early Access Spielen bin.

Nette Idee, aber das war's auch schon.
Nicht zu empfehlen!

Ich stieß auf Castle Story mit viel Langeweile und dem Drang Sandburgen zu bauen, und was ich in dem Trailer sah war Atemberaubend, eine kleine Armee gelber Zwerge mit denen man riesige Burgen bauen kann. Doch das was man hier spielen kann ist kaum nur eine Demo, das gesamte Level fühlt sich einfach nur Steril und klein an, nichts von gigantischen schwebenden Bergen. und auch ein Baumechanikentoutorial fehlt. Ich habe immer noch KEINE AHNUNG wie man Bretter befestigt oder Tunnel baut. Es sollte genanntes Toutorial geben und ein Tool mit dem die "Minions" von ganz alleine effiziente Tunnel bauen. Noch empfehle ich Castle Story keinem aber wenn ein paar Elemente einfacher gemacht werden werde ich meine Meinung nochmal überdenken.

Leider möchte ich mich vielen Vorgängern anschließen: Das Tempo in welchem hier die Updates rausgekloppt werden entspricht in etwa der Geschwindigkeit, die eine Schnecke im besten Alter erreichen kann. Quasi kaum von alten oder kränklichen Schnecken zu unterscheiden.

Schade eigentlich. Dann das Spiel macht Laune. Aber nach 1 Jahr sind kaum Verbesserungen oder Erweiterungen zu sehen.

Castle Story soll ein nettes kleines Strategie und Aufbauspiel sein.
Gelungen finde ich es aber nicht :/
Aber damit ihr wisst warum, hier meine Positiven und Negativen Gründe:
POSITIV:
-Große Kreativität
-Physikalisch Korrekt
-Nette Figuren mit netter Sprache

NEGATIV:
-Kämpfe sind eintönig
-Rohstoffarten begrenzt
-Blockarten zu wenige
-Festungen sind komplett grau
-Zu verbugt, Charaktere reagieren oft nicht
-zu wenig Gegner Typen
-Schlechte Tutorials

So, das war mein kleines Review zu diesem Strategie und Aufbau Spiel.
65/100 Punkten bekommt Castle Story von mir.

21DEC14 Update below.

Overall, I do enjoy this game, and probably had more anticipation for this than any other early access I've followed. So why do I not recommend this? Bullets:

Cons:
- No updates! Years have passed and the game is still in a less functional state than their fictional tech demo.
- Current state is playable, but quickly reveals how broken it is. Terrible AI, limited functoinality of game mechanics, limited... game.
- Devs hate the community. Well probably not hate, but this is the crux of it. There appears to be absolutely no effort being made to update the game in an actual and meaningful way. When pressed for answers from the community as to when we can expect something new, the same canned response of 'we don't give deadlines' is the answer. That's fine after a few months, but not after a few years. The first major red light for me when nearly a years worth of dev updates were about how they spent a month and a half working on a new sound effect for an object that isn't even in the game, or here's a new soundtrack I've been listening to, or "Hey, we're going on vacation!". While glaring issues remain untouched and unaddressed. PR people are hired to quell criticism and silence community dissent.
-Devs are in over their heads. A lot of people will call them theives, or scammers, I don't see it as that. They are still around. They are still 'working'. But it really seems like they've all retreated to their little comfort zones, and feverishly work on silly little things like a sound effect to the exclusion of actual game problems. Why would they do this? Well, it seems pretty clear that they have realized they cannot handle those bigger problems, and just seem to be hoping they'll fix themselves tomorrow. Their production efforts are terribly misguided, and no one seems able to get the train back on the tracks. This is the main reason I think the community has given up on them. There are gracious ways out of this connundrum for them, but they seem completely unwilling to compromise, admit their shortcomings, and work with the community. For that they have failed utterly at making a game. A community college degree does not a game dev make.

Pros:
- Build a big castle block by block, watch a nearly good physics engine crush it.
- If you give them enough money to keep the lights on, you get a t-shirt or something, someday.


Update 21DEC14:
I figured I would update the review considering how much activity the dev's have had lately. But it seems it was all just lip service. Over the last few weeks they've been shotgunning loads of update announcements, but the reality of the situation is those were all just announcements for one single update. That update itself was absolutely trivial, and seems to have added nothing of substance to the game. The devs constantly give the excuse of "reworking" and "redeveloping" engine components of the game, but these changes never seem to result in any sort of actual impact to the game. For all their bluster, a disapointingly little amount has changed, and all assumptions about them have been confirmed. This is just shameless PR propaganda.

The sad fact is, if you're the lunk head that invented a square wheel, taking a year off to invent an octagonal wheel leaves you as still a lunk head. I don't think I'll be revisiting this game until it's final release, whenever that may be.

Final thoughts for now: Stay away. With luck they'll go bankrupt and sell all IP to a competant developer.
