Halloween is at our doorstep!

Like last year we did put some Halloween thematic object in Castle Story!

What is different:

- We did change the Lantern to a Jack O'Lantern
- The souls are now little Ghosts
- Zombietrons have invaded the Survival Mode!
- We put back the Witch Hat for the Archer
- We put back the Pumpkin Helmet for the Knight


A little fix on the Server that wasn't able to start on 32 bit Operating Systems.

Hope you enjoy!

Acerca de este juego

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.

DO NOT BUY! Sauropod studios are run by a very small group of inexperienced, unapologetic jerks. If you bought in to this game through kickstarter or early access, they will treat you like crap on the forums.

The only thing Castle Story had going for it was the amazing work the Community Manager: Box, was doing. Box would try to give information to you straight, without breaking any of the company rules, which was very difficult to do. Box would always try to break information down to the community and calm people down who were angry about any of the situations. In the end, the company would give Box misleading information and then blame him for giving out any information to the community.

One of the primary developers for Castle Story is a dev named Thierry. Thierry has a tendency to berate the community for asking questions. On multiple occasions I've read post by him calling out individuals and virtually yelling at them, or the community in general and blaming them for being impatient. The game has been in development for years now, and there has literally been no visual improvement in over a year.

Originally there were weekly updates on what was going on, with an occasional skipping of a week or two. Now there are monthly updates on what is going on. I take that back. There are monthly video blogs about things nobody cares about. These "monthly" video blogs have only made it up to the 3rd blog before they seem to have stopped posting them. It has been six weeks since the last video blog, which is probably a good thing, because they're useless information anyway.

TL;DR, STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME. The devs will treat you like crap, and blame the community for asking too many questions, the game has been stagnant for over a year. The forums have started seeing posts deleted, and users are getting banned for giving out useful information, and asking real questions respectfully.

I am one of those who bought the game when it first launched on Steam.

Still here waiting for a substantial update. Or anything other than a dumb blog release about the guy is the head cheese in charge of sound. Ive waited an entire yea and it is exactly the same game, nothing notably new.

Games take time, every game is different. Refactoring. Blah Blah.

The problem isnt that the game is broken. Yeah its got bugs, I expect that. Not one significant update in a year.

How is that Space Engineers can produce new mechanics to their game almost weelky on the spot, then release a bug fix of those issues within the next few days? Sauropod has let me down for a game I was really excited about. I even had bought a copy at release for my brother in-law.

Dont be a sucker, you $20 would be better spent on a game with active devs.

I bought this game about a year ago, played it and thought it was cool for an early access. I look at the game now, and it seems like nothing has changed at all. It's a cool idea, what it does have is pretty cool and well done, but development seems to have petered off. For the amount of gameplay it has, and from what I see, is ever likely to have, I would not reccommend the game for more than a few bucks.

This game looked awesome and I was excited for it. I bought it early and was disappointed to get a buggy piece of work that is extremely difficult to play. On top of that, they haven't fixed or improved anything on it. Enjoy my money. I didn't enjoy your game.

1st Session: Played through the one available map. Tried to build a house with blocks that would disappear, and minions that cant path up a staircase.

10/10

2nd Session: Played through the one avalable map. Was unable to get any minions out of harms way. Coruptrons destroyed everything. Textures disappeared mid slaughter so I didn't even know where to mourn my fallen twinkie men.

10/10

3rd session: Fell asleep playing the one available map. Went to the Sauropod thread and realized they are programming this game to instantly cause rectal prolapse; The only thing they have successfuly made is Butt Hurt.

11/10

In all seriousness, just sell the idea to a real developer and buy some weed, Sauropod.
Castle story was a great idea you had once. Let a qualified team finish what you barely started.

No updates in over a year, no community contact with devs, don't expect this game to ever be finished. So, don't buy.
At this point, free is the appropriate price.

They've even disabled comments on their site, and apparently shut down their sub reddit to avoid answering questions.

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.

Fun castle building, can't be all too bad, right? - Hint - YES

Building is fine, AI is bad, it is so bad you can have archers killing themselves.

You can have your footmen stand 5 tiles away from an enemy as it tears down your castle walls.

Sometimes your footmen will run to the opposite side of a large castle to kill an enemy while another enemy is pounding your walls down.

Workers panic and drop everything when the enemy is not even close to them.

Build order is whatever spot is closest to them, not where you place the block first.

Game hasn't had a meaningful update in over a year.

Not recommended.

First of all, this game a great idea. Just be aware that this game gets the slowest ever updates. If you know what cortex command is you know what I mean. Only buy this if you expect to play it in about oh maybe..... 3 years? Good game if they updated it. Bad game since they hardly do.

This game looked to be one of the best games I've ever seen. I mean. Look at the trailer.

So I bought it in alpha or so. Long time ago when the AI was buggy and there were no objective in the game. I thought supporting these guys would help them create the game I wanted some day. And to some extent they have.

So, why don't I recommend it? Simple. The AI still barely works. There's still plenty of bugs and tedious problems that ruin the experience. The game has a bad habit of slowing down and the AI gets progressively worse as the game continues. Don't support the developer until they show some real patches!

The epitome of why buying early access games is a bad idea. The game is ridiculously clunky and unfinished, even by early access standards, and the devs go months without any updates or responses. The concept of the game is cool, but it really isn't worth the money. Give it some years, and maybe then it'll actually be playable.
