So what next?

It has been exciting to see people play and enjoy the game, but watching the let's plays in youtube made us realize that the game's help system is far from perfect.

We are working on overhauling the whole tutorial and moving a lot of the game mechanic explanations to separate help window. You can then check out the help when ever you need more information about something, instead of the tutorial spamming text on your face, page after page.

In addition there's going to be some tooltips when hovering over elements, which again should make the whole learning experience more intuitive and less wall of text.

If there are some specific things you find confusing and not well explained in the current tutorial, feel free to drop a comment or write on the forum about it.

Thanks for everyone who bought the game and happy surviving!

About This Game

A lethal pandemic swept through the globe, mutating vermin into an aggressive menace and threatening to snuff out the light of humanity. Now my children, the survivors of the disease are rising back up, unwilling to let me become a hollow shell on the coast." - The city of Nyheim

Nyheim is a game of risk management and rolling dice. In Nyheim you will gather a group of survivors, each contributing one or more eight-sided dice to the party. When you rest or explore in a location, you roll the dice and attempt to get the results that cards in the location require. Food, items and skills will grant you rerolls and ways to manipulate the dice, while injuries, threats and hardships will reroll them when you don't want to or remove them altogether!

Your ultimate goal is to survive through the winter, gather enough population, or rebuild Nyheim's hydroelectric dam. Crises, threats and ever-looming threat of starvation will make the road to victory harsh and unforgiving.
