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.

10 comments by garrettcolas on Jul 17th, 2013

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.

I have an idea!

When the dwarves have dug deep, so deep as to find the horrible creatures of era's gone by. There, in the deepest brightest most wonderful oasis of dreams, lies the Gorlob. The Gorlob is the greatest fear of any hard working dwarf. You see, the Gorlob knows of the dwarves desires, and feeds off of them. Stories have been told by those who dare not look upon the Gorlob or her angels. They tell of dwarves who are whisked away to the great Schnitzel in the sky. These dwarves live lives of luxury, happiness, and receive all that they wish. These angels cook and clean, make wonderful spouses, they even bring beer to him and his friends during the big game! And never a complaint, except one, but she never speaks of it. We all know the dwarves are vikings fans, thats a given! Yet these angels support the vikings, always biting there tongue, as they know the Packers are the greatest!

So be wary you explorers of the deep, for one day all your dreams may come true...

The engine supports maps as large as you would like. When I was working on the code to generate the map, I tested 1000x1000 blocks, but you could go larger (fair warning, it took 3 or 4 minutes to make the level, If you go much larger the loading times raise exponentially). This might seem like an issue, but it took 5 minutes at full scroll speed to get to the bottom of the map. It would take even longer to reach the end of the map if you had to walk your dwarfs over and defend them from mobs on the way.

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…
