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.

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.

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.
