Survivors of Ragnarök is a city-building-management-survival game about chickens.


Explore

Lead your company of dwarfs into high mountain passes, deep into dangerous forests, scorching deserts, and into the dark underbelly of the earth and back.





Unique and Quirky Creatures

Encounter Bizarre and dangerous creatures from dwarf-eating-tiger-snails, flying pigs, bishop-fishes, and Chickthulhu (100% our idea and totally not suggested by an annoying community member named Thoktaz).


Yeah we know, it's awesome.


Gotta Catch 'em All!

Unlock dozens of unique dwarfs only to die by your hands moments later.

Single Player Campaign

With all the dry humor, charm, wit, and satire you've come to expect from us bundled in an epic historically accurate retelling of the events after everyone's favorite end of the world scenario (next to the zombie-apocalypse, but trust me we have that covered). Expect to be taking part in such epic and grand historical battles such as the Battle of Basing and the Battle of Svolder.

Bellow we have provided a historically accurate depiction of the Battle of Clontarf on April 23, 1024 (your gonna have to trust us on this one guys, it's legit).


Beautiful Hand-Drawn Pixel Art

Now this might just be our personal bias, but we believe we have some pretty sweet pixel art. Each and every pixel lovingly hand-drawn and animated frame by frame.

Biomes are a pretty big deal in procedurally generated games and they will be a really big deal when it comes to Survivors of Ragnarok as well. I've thought about setting up the biomes to be small chunks of the game world, but that simply left a lot to be desired.

Now what if each biome was a completely separate game world? That's what we have in mind.

Take a look.

Now, we spent a fair bit of time working on the isometric engine for this new world and there is still plenty to be done.

For one thing, this new isometric world needs to be randomly generated. These photo's are just some stuff I put together by hand once the engine work was finished.

After that, the saving and loading of each game world needs to be done. It shouldn't be an incredible feat to accomplish, but it will require some interesting file structures. (Think about how many maps will need to be saved in a 50x50x10 isometric game world!)

Finally, it is important to note, that each biome will need it's own generation algorithms to insure every biome has it's own unique look and feel. That very well may be the most time consuming task of them all.

So, although we don't have an update for you quite yet, we have big things in the works for you.


I hope you look forward to the new Biome system as much as we do.

Anyone know what's up with this game right now? As far as I've looked, I can't find anything that's not at least 2 months old. The game's pretty cool, so I want to know what the devs are doing.

Awesome. You taking time to actually respond to me gives me hope for the game. Hope it turns out badass in the end. :3

Thank you for the kind words. The reason I haven't been monitoring our online pages as much is because of all the negativity.

The artist and myself can only work on SoR on our time off after work(we both work 9-5 :/) With so little time, it doesn't do us much good to spend it reading hate-mail.

I have decided to at least apologize to anyone who feels we've wronged them.

Good news is we have a giant update coming up that we feel will dwarf the prior few updates COMBINED!

Sounds good to me. And at least you did respond eventually. Nothing makes me feel more hopeless for a game than silence, so thank you for responding to me.

After reading of all the problems, and seeing responses that simply flame the posts, I won't be buying this game. Thanks Kindlesmith, dawnstorme and drako.

If anything, don't buy it yet. Wait until it is as done as you feel it should be to warrant your purchase. We're not trying to scam any body, we work on the game in our spare time and we wanted to offer our community a way to play the game early.

This game would be great if there were regular updates and the devs didn't hide away so much. Once its complete (if ever) you should come back to check it out. For now there is a very similar game being made, almost to point of being a direct remake of this: Craft the World by Dekovir. Steam Greenlit. There are also similar games but 3d based: Stone Hearth by Tom & Tony (Can't find their company name if the have one) and DwarfCorp by Completely Fair Games.

Haven't been playing it for very long, but it is certainly amazing right now, despite being a bit buggy and lacking content! If you like the sims, minecraft, adorable pixel chickens, and dwarves who climb blocks like newborn kittens climb stairs, you will love this game!

FrenchRiceGames, I am disappoint D: This game is in development for almost one full year. The last updates added gimmicky nonsense like pumpkin patches and candy, rather than adding to the base of the game itself. Other games in a similar state of development offer much more actual gameplay and potential. (Project Zomboid, Towns, heck even Kenshi) Reading the update logs makes me feel like the developers don't even care about the game. I mean sure they pump in tons of self-made pixel art of things…
