Survivors of Ragnarök is a city-building-management-survival game inspired by Dwarf Fortress. Manage, create, and survive through dynamic and deadly worlds. Losing is a fundamental core aspect of design.

Believe it or not making new AI behaviors is hard work. So is fighting Zombies.

Posted by Tastyrice on Oct 25th, 2011

It's been far to long since we've had a chance to talk. We've gone through hell and back to work on this update. Fighting off ninjas, addiction to Minecraft, fighting through zombies, becoming zombies, being human, and the ongoing battle against the urges of playing Dungeon Defenders.

Fortunately for us, we run on Valve time, so thankfully we got this update earlier then usual for you guys. Unfortunately for us however, zombies and ninjas use the silly standard global measurement of time.

-Added New mob "Goblin"
-Added Aggressive mob AI.
-Added New mob "Goblin", be prepared to fight them off or have your dwarfs die.
-Added System for randomizing sounds for greater variety.
-Added New Sounds for Chickens.
-Added New Sounds for walking/moving.
-Added New Consumable “Pumpkin”, Happy Halloween!
-Changed The Tab key will now open a temporary text stat screen.
-Changed The F5 key will reset your map in Survival mode.
-Fixed Some animation issues, more of these to come.

*For parents of piggies or space marines* (or both)
-New Design Documents Collision
-New Design Document Resource Gathering
-New Artwork Chickenpocalypse
-New Artwork Classy
-Added Splash Screen Artwork
-Survivors of Ragnarok Minecraft Skins

As with every release we've ever had, a plethora of bugs plague this long overdue release. Let's also not forget what would a numbered Alpha release be without some dwarf humor.

If you still haven't adopted your pig now would be a better time then any. Considering we aren't immune to greed now would be the perfect opportunity to grab a pig today.

Bloody hell I love this art. That pig alone is enough to make me want to adopt one, unfortunately I have no money or a means to get it (student lifestyle). Keep up the good work

I would buy it considering I have over £200 in cash stowed away in somewhere you wont know, but I'm saving for a new computer and just bought Payday: The Heist (Verily good). Keep up the work though!

So you just said the sacred ancestors of dwarves and Notch are elves. Good job, I estimate an army of marksdwarves and knighs in diamond armor will arrive in about.. two hours, DF time.

We meant evolution wise, the elves are less than apes. I think dwarfs would agree with that.

My point was, inhabitants of dwarf fortresses are way too stupid to realise (they are stupid enough to die of dehydration, IN WATER...)

@Flufffkind: I don't think you can wear candy in Minecraft ;)
