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 really like Dwarf Fortress, but the biggest problem I have with the game is that everytime I take a break from it and pick it back up later, I have forgotten all the important comands and processes to keep your fort functioning. I also wished it had better graphics. But this game has answered both of those problems. The game has captured the essence of Dwarf Fortress. The graphics are great and the commands are easier to figure out. There needs to be more enemies and it lacks the amazing amount of content and complexity that Dwarf fortress has, but it's nice to play a game that I don't have to relearn every time I pick it up.
Gnomoria is currently in alpha-state which means there's plenty to improve before it's concidered as a finished product. This doesn't mean that it's unplayable, quite the contrary, it's a cheerful strategy/building sim in the veins of Dwarf Fortress.
-It's fun to run your own little kingdom
-Variety of things to do
-Mouse controls are a bit clunky (alpha!)
-Lot to learn even though it's nowhere near DF.
-Slow paced (for those that seek for action/RTS, beware)
Can't wait for the future updates!
A realy nice game with a lot of micro management. Would be nice if i dont need always to cut the trees manualy but this isnt that bad either.
Also a nice thing is that you can assign jobs to your gnomes and create new classes (maybe a farm only guy without tree felling).
Also every gnome has its own stats - so one is better at mining and so on.
I realy like this and cant believe this is a alpha version.
