Welcome to Dungeon Colony!

Vote on Steam Greenlight

This is my first public indie game. My goal is to create a game in which you make your own dungeon while defending it from Heroes.

Dungeon Colony is a game influenced by one of my favorite games - Dungeon Keeper - and it adds Tower Defense waves of enemies with resource collection and crafting.

The game is in alpha and many features are not complete yet. I am updating the game quite regularly, sometimes multiple times a week. Download the alpha release on the web-site at www.DungeonColony.com. The game requires Java and it auto-updates itself if a new version is available.

About the game:

Dungeon Colony is a 2D fantasy real-time strategy game in which you take control over a Dungeon Lord and his loyal Minions to explore and build a Dungeon and save your colony from the brink of extinction. Command your Minions to dig out tunnels and rooms, craft items from resources they collect, and set up traps to defend your new home against greedy heroes. The mountain harnesses powerful magic that has the potential to give you control over the lands around you. But it's up to you to uncover its secrets before you are overrun by your enemies.

Minions!

I'm making good progress on the final major game engine features: Creature behavior and creature economy. In this version update (v0.2.6.0) I'm extending how abilities are used to control your minion behavior.

There are 9 new abilities which range from mining ore, lumbering wood to transporting and building objects. Now, the player can control what orders a worker will perform and which one he will ignore. The following gif animation shows how you can simply turn on and off certain abilities.


You ask what is the benefit for that and why should I care??? A lot of feedback I've received asked me to allow the player control over what minions do. The engine used to assign orders to your workers on a first come first serve basis. So if you had 10 activities pending to lumber wood, whenever a minion would become free to perform this job, he would take on the job and carry it out.

With the new system, you can designate which minions lumber wood, which mine, dig dirt, collect water, etc. This way, you could limit how many of your workers lumber wood, while others stay back to mine fore ore. By default a minion will carry out all of these abilities, but you can choose to turn them off when you want. In future game updates, workers will be able to learn new abilities. But that's not part of this release yet. :)

You have to make sure the Master isn't hungry or out of stamina. And you need to select a study item from the list, after selecting the study. The study shouldn't be too close to a wall/object, it may obstruct the master from reaching it... that's something I'll fix. ;)

Ahh yes, I think the tutorial needs to be re-written then, with the masters lair comming before the study, as by that stage my master was tired

is their a way to stop the Attackers from comming? I find myself rushed in the current demo to a point where it gets a bit un-fun..

I would like to post bug, which I found in latest version 0.1.8.176 - all my minions & DM freeze but enemy NPC are moving and attacking (my minions are losing food and stamina too). I have saved game, tried to reload, without success :/ I can provide my DxDiag System Informations and log-in name, if needed.
