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When loading old save games, some jobs that are no longer valid will be cancelled.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

GAH! I want to play it so bad, but my games can only go for so long before they crash or go corrupt. XP Can't wait to see more patches!

What I love about this is the day-night-cycle, the fog of war and the graphics. Though the rain looks a bit off, I'd love to be able to use it, as in, build cisterns to collect it and do various stuff with the water. Right now it evaporates in an instant.

Another thing I just noticed is the combat system. Did you copy it 1:1 from DF? I mean the body part system and the attacks, the wacky biting and improvised weaponry, it looks exactly the same, except for some mechanical details.

Sooo.. What about an adventure mode to enjoy the combat directly? xP

I've encountered a bug where my game keeps crashing when trying to deselect stone from a stockpile, it's happened 2 times now on the same stockpile!

I've had similar issues deselecting just about anything. The gnomes also refuse to use some stockpiles. Can't wait until the bugs are ironed out and it's out of alpha. Best DF style game I've ever seen.

This game looks awesome, I really hope you guys manage to do great things with this, but it's already looking good

I'm glad someone is finally making a game like DF, this game already has a leg up on it, seeing that has a proper UI, I really keen to see this game succeed, it has loads of potential :D

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…
