Gnome mountain is a real time strategy game where you build an under ground colony for a small group of gnomes. You have no direct control over your gnomes who will have their own AI personalities and needs. While you are unable to directly control their actions, you can place down requests for buildings, tunnels, traps etc. Your gnomes will do their best to make your requests happen if they are kept healthy and happy.

Features:

  • No need to micro manage your gnomes, just place your orders around the map and watch them attempt to follow them
  • Each gnome has an individual personality and it's own needs, try to keep your gnomes happy and healthy so that they will work more quickly and not get any kind of sickness (or die)
  • A skill system that determines a gnome's expertise in every area of their life, and many ways for your gnomes to increase their abilities including library research, social interaction and spending time in a guild hall
  • Over 50 different work stations and buildings from recreational to industrial
  • A unique combat system where you defeat monsters through creatively placed traps, patrols, magic wards and walls, rather than only directly fighting
  • Many different industries each made up of many work stations or buildings working together to create products to feed, clothe and enrich your gnomes
  • Multiple types of enemies such as the stealthy thief enemies that can only be stopped by traps, or the dreaded cave spiders that love to eat gnomes
  • Create intricate trap systems, guard posts and magical monoliths to defend your gnomes from attack
  • Discover valuable and ancient artifacts within the mountain that will lead your gnomes to their ultimate invention, or their ultimate doom
  • Valuable mineral veins spread throughout the mountain that may be guarded by dwarves, lava pits or dangerous terrain
  • Procedurally generated mountains that lead to each game being played in a new map with new dangers and rewards
  • A cave generator that will create different caves and dungeons in every new mountain
  • Defend your gnomes from the (possibly drunk) dwarf menace that will seek to take control of your mineral veins and mines

Gnome Mountain Dev Video #1

News

I've left this project on the sideline for over 2 years now, even though 2 years ago the game was quite far along in development. I've finally gotten back to a place in my life where I can spend a year to finish this game and release it and so I thought this would be an appropriate day to also post a game play video.


The video is quite basic and a lot of things in the game are still missing animations but it shows some of the AI mechanics and a basic living settlement.

O.o your making some serious progress! Keep up the good work! Also a little advice they usually won't put your news post on the front page unless you have media up. I would suggest posting media of your game in your news post so you can get more coverage.

Hmm looks interesting. A question though. Will it be 3d or will it be restricted to just moving up down left and right?

At the moment it's 2 dimensional movement.

I just posted a new screenshot of the cave generator if anybody is interested, the caves will eventually be home to various enemies and treasures.
