Gnomoria is a sandbox village management game where you help lead a small group of gnomes, who have set out on their own, to thrive into a bustling kingdom! Anything you see can be broken down and rebuilt elsewhere. Craft items, build structures, set traps and dig deep underground in search of precious resources to help your gnomes survive the harsh lands. Build your kingdom and stockpile wealth to attract wandering gnomads to your cause, but be wary of also attracting enemies!

I just wanted to remind everyone that while there hasn't been any news updates here in a while, there have been updates to Gnomoria almost every week.  You can always check the Gnomoria website or forums for the latest updates.

This update is the start of an overhaul of crafting and items.  Overall, it won't be vastly different from what you're used to.  There are around 50 new items this patch, where most of them are intermediate items used to craft workshops or finished goods.  Many recipes have had their ingredient quantities reduced but might require more steps to craft from scratch.  Job completion times have also been increased across the board.

There is also a stricter progression of workshops now.  In order to build a workshop, many require a specific item that is crafted in a different workshop.  The first workshop that can be built is a Crude Workbench.  This workshop works slower than others but doesn't craft anything that can't be crafted somewhere else.  Once other workshops have been built, the Crude Workbench is safe to deconstruct.

When loading old save games, some jobs that are no longer valid will be cancelled.  After loading a game, it would be a good idea to just check your workshops to see where you might need to recreate jobs.  However, to get the full experience of the changes, I recommend starting a new game with this update.

With an update like this, I'll be closely watching everyone's feedback and expect to make some adjustments.  Some things might be much harder or easier now and I'll try to work out the kinks as quick as I can.

I have been debating this game for a long time. I played the demo quite a while back and i sucked at it, everyone died striaght away, so I uninstalled it. I then realised, it's not one of them games you can just jump in to and expect everything to be easy and perfect. I re-downloaded the demo and learnt the game and I can now say, I'm in love with it, so I will most probably be making a purchase of this, but on steam considering I use that more than Desure, or I could just get the key from this and activate it on Steam once I buy it, if thats optional.

I do recommened this game to everyone. Dont think that the graphics aren't great so the game is going to suck, because you will be wrong on so many levels. Atleast give the demo a go and see what you make of it.

0.9.3 appeared here on the 17th or so (two weeks after 0.9.3 came out) at the same time as 0.9.4 came out .

I've contacted Desura. I'll let people know what they say.

Great game but honestly there needs to be a wakeup button on gnomes so your Good starter soldier with the armor and weapon doesnt sleep through the rest of all your gnomes getting masacured (im a bad speller lol) .

Wondering as well - version 0.9.4 was announced in the official forum today, but version 0.9.3 is nowhere to be seen in Desura...

Yeah, I noticed that. And 0.9.3 was released two weeks ago. Desura are generally pretty slow in making Gnomoria updates. Often it's Friday. Not sure if it normally takes Desura this long for other games.

The closer it gets to release the slower updates might come as the issues can become more complicated or focus on more complex corrections rather than contentual or basic errors. Also its nearing Christmas so the devleoper might simply not have as much time or wishes to leave a stable working version out for the holidays and then tinker when they are over

For years, I've been hoping and praying that someone... ANYONE would take the concept of a Dwarf Fortress style fantasy village sim game and make it into an actual marketable-quality game. No offense to DF, of course, but it has the accessability of Mt. Everest and a Rubix Cube of a UI. Gnomoria may just be the answer to that prayer. Though the game seems to have come out of nowhere, the functionality, presentation, and potential of this one surpass any alpha I've ever played. The game itself sticks…
