Its Summer Sale

But we are not relaxing at the beach drinking mojitos.

No, we are still working hard to bring more awesome content to Wartile, but good things take time and we have taken our hands full this time. And yes, we’re sorry that it is taking so long. We initially thought we’d be faster, but some reworks took a bit more time than expected.

As some of you might know we are working on three pillars at the same time, reworking the story, developing new content for the upcoming DLC and porting Wartile to PS4 and Xbox. This is a lot for a studio of only a handful developers. The good news is that we’re making good progress right now:

Reworking the Story
The big news is that we are rewriting the story in Wartile to meet some of the critiques from our community which was basically saying that the story was not being truly relevant to the player or the flow of the game. This is something that we wanted to improve for a long time, and now we do it. We’re currently putting the last bits and bytes together here and can already say that the overall flow will be heavily improved with the upcoming changes. Finally, Wartile gets the story it deserves.


In fact, this story rework was taking much more time than we initially planned. Again: We’re sorry that it is taking that long, but we think you’ll like the result of the hard work we’ve put into this.


Adding more enemy types
We have been revisiting some of the Factions in Wartile and trained some of their leaders to prepare them better when accounting your fellowship of Vikings. They now have better fighting ability to match your tactical superiority.

We are working hard to get this major update ready for you as fast as possible.

Before zoning out we just wanted to show a few pictures from the upcoming DLC that we also are very excited about.

Games From Denmark Sale & our creative process

Hi Everyone

This week Steam runs a Midweek Madness sales with games developed from Denmark, to celebrate the Danish Games Week where developers from Denmark get the chance to meet and share experience, discovering new talents and talk to investors and publishers.

In the spirit of sharing our experience, we have collected some of the highlights of our creative process of making Wartile, and want to share this with all of you who are interested.
We have divided it up into three chapters covering, Environment art, Character art and finally Community and Game Play

Environment Art

In the beginning, we wanted to create a game that embraced the childhood memories of playing or gaming with figurines in miniature environments. Just like when playing games like Dungeons & dragons and Warhammer.

In the early stages, we made a tile-based system testing some of the core battle mechanics as a physical board game. We wanted to emulate the feeling of playing in a miniature world coming to life, where the game was in constant motion, but still with the flavor of turn-based mechanics.

When developing the game within the Unreal 4 Engine, we tried out a few early iterations on the visual side. The Goal was to create a diorama fell while also clearly communicating the strategical options available. With the top left, we tried to work with partly procedural generated tiles and foliage.

Our first gameplay trailer made three years ago under the working title TACTILE.

We learned that defined tiles as part of the environment on the board significantly enforced the tactical aspects of the game, while also gave the board an appealing visual appearance.

To capture the feeling of playing on a diorama board we froze the water in its motion, creating a strong dynamic feel, with explicit references to handcrafted miniature models.

The clear-cutting of the diorama boards helped us frame the gameplay area while also creating a strong visual identity for Wartile.

All the boards are custom made, each one with a different visual setting and a new type of game challenge. Here you can get an exclusive inside peek of how we create the boards.(Warning - Pretty nerdy)

To further enforce the miniature look and feel, we made use of the Tilt-Shift effect on the camera, adding blur in the for- and background while still having the figurines in perfect focus.

We proudly believe that we have established a unique visual identity for Wartile that fits the type of game we have been trying to create, and are looking forward to pushing the boundaries even further in the future.


Enjoy the raidings

Kind regards

Wartile Dev Team

“This is a perfect blend of board game and RTS action. It’s hard to reinvent the wheel. But this is a strategy game unlike anything I’ve ever played before.”
