Update 3: Beards
Update 3
Update 2
Update 4
A Home in Orbit
For some bizarre reason, we managed to remove the beards in the previous release. It's hard to think of a worse fate for a dwarf! Beards should be central to this game., so we are talking about adding features, where players can customize their beards. Heck, maybe we'll even do procedurally generated beards some day!

Update 3: Beards mainly fixed and tweaked a bunch of things. It went live on April 7th, 2017.

Patch Notes[]

  • Probably our most requested feature, BEARDS are in!
  • Dwarf outfits tweaked to match key art.

  • New Status Effect and Affliction systems means we can make stuff like web slowing and fire burning effects more easily.
  • The shooting spider now shoots a web that slows and impairs the vision of the player.
