What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Although we've been working on Mountaincore for a long time already, there are still features we want to add before it is complete. That said, the game is already in a good place, it is fun and enjoyable with a good amount of content but with your help we can make it even better - we regularly take on feedback from the community via our Discord server, and this genre of game is perfectly well-suited to layering new features and systems on top of those that already exist. Early Access allows us to guide the game towards the best version of itself over time, especially thanks to feedback from the community, rather than launching the finished game but with lots of areas that could have been improved.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We currently expect around 1 to 2 years in Early Access - this genre of game is extremely well-suited to having further gameplay system layered upon it. However, this is a rough estimate at best.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Mountaincore is currently lacking in long-term progression systems which are intended to give multiple reasons to keep playing and replaying. These will be the main focus of the Early Access period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently playable, fun and has a reasonable amount of content to keep people happy for a while. Please refer to the store description for a list of the current main features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game may increase in price after the Early Access period has ended”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We constantly listen to and incorporate community feedback. The best way to get involved is via our Discord server (there's a link here on the store page)”

About This Game

Current Features

  • Start with 7 dwarves but you can build and support a population of hundreds
  • A simulated world with changing weather and seasons that have a big impact on gameplay
  • Every one of your settlers has their own needs and desires to fulfil as they work together for the common good
  • A deep crafting tree that leaves no natural resource unused, tied together into satisfying production chains
  • Progress through skill tiers to craft better tools and weapons
  • Trade with merchants to increase your wealth even further
  • Form up and train your military to battle monsters and invaders...
  • ...or play in Peaceful Mode to chill out with a relaxing city-builder experience
  • Twitch integration (using viewer names for settlers) to encourage stream audience interaction
  • Built "Mod-first" so that everything is moddable

Future/Roadmap Features

  • Take a party of adventurers to explore other maps and locations - including the maps of other players!
  • Attract and house nobles to build your prestige to unlock further advancements
  • More dangers and hurdles to overcome such as food spoilage and even worse monsters
  • More treasures and rewards to be found such as monstrous crafting materials and legendary items

    The game works on Steam Deck, in fact we believe it should qualify for full compatibility, however we are waiting on Valve for an official Steam Deck compatibility review.
