Dungeoncraft is a fantasy real time strategy game featuring multiplayer sandbox survival type gameplay, dynamic world expansion, and 3D grid based digging and building. It does allow for direct control over your units, having indirect orders only for convenience' sake. Craft weapons, raid dungeons for epic loot and mighty spells, brew potions, build or dig fortifications against the computer or your friends. It's all up to you! Play in the unique "communicationsmode", which only allows you to control your units if you supply them with orders or contact them directly with your avatar or substitutes! Requires at least opengl 3.3 capability to run; Windows XP untested, but Vista and newer will definitly work.

New in 262:

  • Minimap no longer buffers all the time when having moved, but instead only if you moved 2 minimap screens far or more
  • Added new lighting
    • Sun and other lightsources dynamically light the environment
    • Sun causes shadows
    • Torches emit light while being carried in hand
    • Magic projectiles emit light
You can also see the bump mapping in the right one:

It's mostly kept multiplatform, but I don't want to invest in it right now. However I think it will be available eventually.

Yes, what you said.
I'm really not liking where I'm seeing this trend going re: paid-early-access-beta. It limits feedback, and disapoints people who feel like they spent way too much money on something that isn't close to being finished.

This does look promising, though, and I'd love to help out with my own feedback and impressions. But, I can't, and I'm sure I'm not the only in this position.
It looks like something I'd pay 12.99 for as a final product; maybe more than that, even.

If you want to honestly have a beta for the purposes of testing and feedback from potential users, then have an open beta, or at least a cheap one, or don't have one at all.
When you charge too much for too little, too early, you're only getting feedback from that specific set of people who are willing to buy anything, and driving away people who'd be willin gto pay even more money, later.

You can find most of the information you are looking for on the game's homepage, Dungeoncraft.draig.de. And yes I'm looking to improve graphics and implement a trap system, which I'll talk about in Devlog#2. You can also find 2 old news (that might interest you) on indiedb.com/games/dungeoncraft, which did not get transfered over when the game came to desura.
