Forwards to 2018!



Darkest greetings Underlord,

The hoar frost has settled across the once verdant fields of the Overworld, coating the land in the icy fingers of encroaching death. In the caverns below the fires of the foundry lie extinguished for the first days in months as the development Imps close up shop to spend time with loved ones and family.

While we lock up the office and make our way out of the door until 2018 we wanted to reach out and extend our festive greetings to all our fans and customers and wish you all the very best of times. We thought we’d also use this opportunity to share a few messages, thoughts and previews of things that were, things that are and some things that have not yet come to pass.

So please Underlords before you indulge in the season’s graces read on!

Steam Awards 2017 - Thank You for Your Support!

In the Steam Autumn sale, we humbly put forward our bid to become a nominee for the Labour of Love award, the award in the 2017 Steam Awards that we felt the best fit the five-year journey since first leaving Kickstarter!

If you missed it we hastily put together a small infographic on the journey thus far which you can see below and we also shared our thoughts and feelings as to that journey in our Labour of Love and Message of Thanks posts.


Five years of sweat and toil summed up in a handy image!

It is with a tang regret that we must announce that we have not made it as one of the nominations for this award despite the best efforts of ourselves and the community.

This result was not entirely unexpected, we knew it would be an uphill battle to top many of other great games out there with incredible teams and we have to congratulate all the nominees for every Steam Award and we’d like to thank all our fans who took the time to vote for us and encourage you to now vote for the games you’d most like to see win the Awards!


Warm congratulations to the nominees, there's a lot of great games on display!

Even though we did not make the cut we were deeply humbled by the response we saw to our bid. You came out in force to support us and showed us just how much you love WFTO in its current state. You showed us that our game is something we could be proud in a way we never thought possible by raising our review score a whole percentage point overall and up to a staggering 98% recently!


Unmanly tears were shed upon reading this figure

Time and time again we’ve leant on the support of the community as we’ve gone through hard times, we’ve faced delays, difficult releases, countless bugs and issues and even the spectre of bankruptcy together and as always we cannot thank you enough. Together we’ve made WFTO into something great and the best is yet to come, inspired by your support we’re confident 2018 will bring the best version of WFTO yet!

War for the Overworld in 2018

We can’t deny that next year is going to be a bittersweet one for War for the Overworld, with Patch 2.0 and Expansion 4 travelling down the tunnels of the internet to usher in the final form of War for the Overworld in Q1-Q2 2018.

This collective update will be the largest, most involved and significant in War for the Overworlds and is likely to touch nearly every corner of War for the Overworld, shifting the game into high gear and hopefully delivering what will be the ultimate version of our first and most loved game.

Sadly we’re still quite some ways away from a release so we’re not quite ready to spill to beans on everything that will be coming, and a few of you will already know the features revealed so far but for the benefit of those not yet in the know here’s some of what’s coming:

  • New Singleplayer Campaign - Focussing on the Underlords and replayability factor
  • New Underlord AI - Built from the ground up to be more flexible, intelligent and challenging
  • New Veins of Evil Aspects - New units, defences, spells and more make their debut
  • New Dungeon Themes - New Underlords come with their own new themes, including Dungeon Hands!
  • More Map Editor Features - Get creative with new features in the Map Editor including My Pet Dungeon support and more!

We’ve also released a few teaser concepts in our previous posts as a thank you for all your support and to give you some idea of what’s coming. So we couldn’t well go without showing you something new today!

While our previous previews have focussed entirely on what is new today we’ll show off some things that are changing to make the game better. In particular, a number of swanky new animations coming to the game to inject some additional personality into some units whilst they work!

Please note that all previews below are very early Work in Progress versions and there’s still plenty of work to be done!







And it’s not just units getting some love, this defence, in particular, has been needing a touch up for a while





We can’t wait to get all this in your hands, but alas we’re not quite ready yet. Rest assured that in the new year we’ll be able to share so much more as our final update is realised.

After that, we’ll keep our eyes on WFTO and arrange to make some passes on supporting existing features but we’ll also be moving our team fully onto our new project, which we’ll likely share some details on later in 2018!

Happy Holidays from Brightrock Games
All that remains to be said now is from all of us at Brightrock Games we wish you all happy holidays, merry Christmas and happy new year regardless of who, what or how you celebrate and we hope that the new year will bring you all joy and happiness.



It remains to be said that until the new year our office will be closed but some of us will continue patrolling our forums and support infrastructure to answer questions or help if needed, but response times will be slower.

That’s it for now Underlords, we’ll see you in 2018!

Oh and don’t forget that for the duration of the Winter Sale WFTO products are up to 72% off!

Cheers,

– Brightrock Games Team

Support Charity with the Yogscast Worker



Darkest greetings Underlord,

The end of the year is fast approaching, and our imps are hard at work on new content for you to sink your gnarled teeth into in 2018. In the meantime we have a short announcement for you: another Worker has joined the cause, and made a call for charity!

Introducing the Yogscast Worker

Indeed, this stout little fellow was recently unearthed in an old mineshaft deep in the Underworld, where he was found munching his last Jaffa Cake. He doesn’t speak much, and we don’t even know his name; but what he will do is sing about digging a hole. Oh, endlessly will he sing it! Ceaselessly!


“I am an imp and I'm digging a hole, diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole!”

You can acquire the Yogscast Worker and his diamond pickaxe, along with dozens of other games, in this year’s Yogscast Jingle Jam. By donating the calling price of $35, this annoyingly chipper fellow and a whole slew of incredible games and content can be yours, with every drop of the proceeds going to charitable causes!


“... I am an imp and I'm digging a hole, diggy diggy hole, digging a hole!”

Who says that a little evil can’t change the world for the better? Now please take him off our hands and use him as a Worker skin in War for the Overworld, before his warbling attracts a wandering Augre and we have a little accident.

The Cynical Imp Is Still on the Campaign Trail

Before we leave you, Underlord, the other member of our growing troupe of charitable Workers, has asked us to remind you that he is still fighting for the (no doubt deserving) cause of dungeon workers’ rights.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMS-tQxTFdY

If you’re feeling particularly charitable, The Cynical Imp will hit the campaign trail for a small donation of £1.99, with all of Brightrock Games’ proceeds going directly to GamesAid, our partnered charity (Registered UK Charity # 1081706). They are a team of incredible individuals that work with the UK games industry, acting as an umbrella for smaller charities, to help those in need.

For Underlords willing to give a little extra, you can also get your Hand of Evil on the previously-exclusive Kickstarter and Founders Dungeon Themes - all in the good name of charity!


“... diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole!” Where is that incessant racket coming from, wondered The Cynical Imp.

You can acquire The Cynical Imp and the exclusive Dungeon Themes via the Steam Store or our website!

Thank you for your support!

– Brightrock Games Team

“A deeply strategic and absorbing experience, and a pitch-perfect sense of dark humour.”
Wired UK

“It’s evident this game was made with nothing but love for the series it’s so shamelessly inspired by. Subterranean knows exactly what was so thrilling about playing the part of a malicious tyrant.”
7.5/10 – The Jimquisition

“Brightrock Games haven't stopped supporting the game ... In fact, they rolled up their sleeves, listened to feedback, and polished those old dungeons to a shine.”
Indiegames

Celebrating Two Years of WFTO!

Om dette spillet

Tired of invading dungeons? It's time you built your own!

Do you feel you’re in a slump, monotonously disembowelling evil guys in endless quests for gold and a slightly better pair of boots? Are you starting to wonder if heroics really are your calling? Then welcome to the War for the Overworld!

Dungeon Management Reincarnated



Excavate and build your dungeon beneath the overworld, in the modern dungeon management game that’s most faithful to the genre’s original DNA. Keep your dungeons, slap your minions, and forge underground fortresses filled with all the dastardly rooms, traps and heinous minions you desire. Do it all under the mentorship of the original and best voice of evil: Richard Ridings!

Wield the Arsenal of Evil



Evil loves options, and within the Veins of Evil there are plenty to go around! Choose from over sixty rooms, spells, potions, rituals, defences and constructs as you progress through the game. Deploy your fiendish tools against the goodly heroes of the overworld, and teach them the price of trespass.

Conquer a Myriad of Modes



With six game modes to choose from you can conquer your enemies in your own unique way. Choose from Campaign, Skirmish, Scenarios, Multiplayer, Survival, and the My Pet Dungeon expansion (free 2-level demo included in the base game), and discover what it truly means to be the bad guy.

Customise, Create, and Share with Your... Enemies



Build your own maps with the intuitive and powerful Map Editor, then share them on the Steam Workshop to join the ranks of nearly 3000 custom maps already created! Meddle further, and change the very rules themselves to your liking with dozens of mutators. Being evil has never been so creative!

Made by Cultists (Fanatics), for Cultists (Fanatics)



War for the Overworld is developed by an independent team of fanatical developers, each with a true love of the dungeon management genre. We have continued to update the game since launch, with countless patches, balancing, polish, and many new features - plus there’s more on the way! Our community has been vital to our success, so please join us, and let your voice be heard!
