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When loading old save games, some jobs that are no longer valid will be cancelled.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.

No updates since January?
I want to buy it on Desura instead of Steam, but it looks like the game is outdated over here. Is this correct?!

EDIT: It's also cheaper for me on Steam... :(

Robobob updates the game almost every Tuesday. Steam general gets the new version quickest, but Desura usually has it the same day or the next day at the latest.

This game updates on here quicker than I can keep up with. Don't know (or really care) about the Steam version, but this gets updated almost weekly.

Today a new version was released and I'm waiting for that update, but they're normally quite punctual with releasing updates, so being stuck with and out-of-date version won't be an issue.

Unfortunately it is only payable with creditcard or Paypal. Both opens the door for deception. Thanks USA!

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…
