Giving away 62 Steam games and Forager keys for our Advent Calendar event!




Win a bunch of Steam games (including Forager!) in our Advent Calendar Event!


Merry Christmas, everyone!

We've decided to run an Advent Calendar this holiday season as a way to give out to the community! It will be going for 15 days starting from the 11th through to the 25th!

Each day will be a selected game which has been generously donated by me or one of our community members!

Alongside the games of the day, there will also be a key for the Forager beta for each winner! So that's a FREE game and also access to the beta! Yay!

In the very last week, we will also be giving away Steam keys for the full Forager game!

To participate, you will need to be level 10 or higher on our Discord server. This can be achieved simply by chatting and you also get other rewards as you level up! You have the entire month to take part in this!

This event will be hosted each day in our Discord server, click here to participate!

Beta 7 preview

Hey everyone!

Today I will be talking through some of the features I got to implement for Beta 7 as a result of the recent delay in Forager's release date.

Beta 7 will be released next week, on Thursday 13th of December. If you do not have a closed beta key, please read this!

Here are a few of the things I have added:


LANDFILL:

This is a new item crafted at the Flower Press that lets you put blocks of land anywhere you want! This is functionally the same as building a Bridge, but it allows for some prettier base building and customization. Additionally, you may even plant and harvest crops in these land tiles!




ASSIGN DROIDS TO BUILDINGS:

You may now assign Droids to most buildings by pressing right click when selection them:



This will solve the problem of having too many droids as they will just stay there "powering" the building (which grants it an increased bonus in efficiency!)

Once you need the Droid again for mining or enemy slaying, just come back to pick him up and continue your adventure!


NECRO ROD:

Another new item! This one is a Gear piece found in the Skull Maze. It works like any other Rod in the sense that it has a charge but a very powerful effect. In this case, it summons skeletons!



Why would you want to summon skeletons? The big ones now drop a new item called the Great Skull:



It will be used for a very important crafting recipe. With the Necro Rod + Holy Relic + Magic Scepter, you can get some pretty crazy Great Skull farming!


SPIRIT ORBS:

These are new consumable items that replace Heart Containers and Energy Vessels found in treasure chests. Once you get a Spirit Orb, you can intermediately consume it from your inventory to gain a permanent bonus:

  • +1 permanent Max HP
  • +36 permanent Max Energy
  • +1 permanent Damage
  • +1 instant and permanent Level Up


Spirit Orbs can be found in big treasure chests, small skull chests and they can also be crafted in a new structure on the Magic skill branch:



Crafting Spirit Orbs requires a LOT of Great Skulls, so go find that Necro Rod if you want to speed things up!

And finally...


SHOVEL UPGRADES!

Yup, we finally did it! Upgrades for the Shovel item!



Each one of those provides new fun effects besides increasing the dig area:

  • Water Shovel: 2x2 dig area, digging irrigates the dirt
  • Nomad's Shovel: 3x3 dig area, digging always yields sand
  • Royal Shovel: 4x4 dig area, digging always yields ores
  • Robotic Shovel: 5x5 dig area, digging always yields rare items


Besides all of these additions, I am still working every day to try to include more things for Beta 7 and the final release in general. You may always check what I am working on in the official Forager Trello!

YOU WERE ASKING FOR MORE FORAGER...

Originally made for a jam (in which Forager won second place!), over 200,000 players tried and LOVED the prototype! You were all asking for MORE FORAGER, so here it goes! A full 15+ hour experience for everyone on Steam!



After a full year of development, the game on Steam features a TON of new content, systems, and exclusive features!

  • New lands and biomes (Deserts, Graveyards, Snowy Mountains, Volcanoes, and more!)
  • Combat mechanics have been added! (Dungeons, Bosses, Raids, Night time invasions, etc).
  • NPC interaction. Find quirky companions to trade or talk with.
  • Farming mechanics, including caring for animals and the harvesting of all sorts of crops and herbs.
  • Archaeology mechanics. Play as a professional secret-finder as you raid ruins, dig for artifacts and display your findings in your own museum!
  • Alchemy & Rune Inscription mechanics. Allowing you to go all in on the crazy wizard fantasy, destroying big masses of resources with a single bomb or creating trees out of nothing with a powerful spellbook.
  • 16+ new skills to learn and master, in a free-form upgrade system that allows you to customize your experience as you see fit. This brings the number of skills up to 64 total, each unlocking new items, structures or gameplay modifiers!
  • Random events have finally been added!
  • New resources, objects, structures, animals, puzzles, secrets and more! More EVERYTHING!
  • Steam only features!
