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When loading old save games, some jobs that are no longer valid will be cancelled.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

Got the demo and loving it so far. Feels so much more accessible than DF. Still wanna wait to see what else is in store for this before counting my pennies. Pretty sure I'll get it, tho. ;P

Is there any chance that something could be added so that new games spawn with a handful of bandages? Losing a gnome to blood loss early on can really, really hurt.

Hate to do any comparisons of one game to another game, but this game is really giving me the 'Minecraft RTS' vibe. Loved the demo enough I threw money at the devs!

Minecraft was partly inspired by Dwarf Fortress, which is also an inspiration for Gnomoria.

i think that marriage for the gnomes should be implemented into the game and having kings and queens and having baby gnomes and a nursery for the baby gnomes thrones and throne room designation area, but with the king adn queen aspect it should probaly be availible after a sertain amout of time like when your kingdoms total worth gets pretty good, just a thought.

I recall seeing a "Gnome Therapist" mod here:

Contains both Cheat and No-Cheat versions, the no-cheat version only allowing you to change what jobs your gnomes are, etc (ie: Things you can do ingame anyway), while the cheat version lets you change your gnome's stats.

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…
