K I C K S T A R T E R (over success)

Prototype

In DwarfCorp you manage a group of dwarf employees sent by Greybeard and Sons Corp to explore and exploit unknown regions, and send back your collections to corporate HQ via air balloons. The world will be trying to stop you, though, as it will be infested with all kinds of horrible creatures and inhospitable climates!

Looks awesome!
I'm a huge fan of rpg tilesets and sprites and it's especially interesting to see them in 3D engines!

And not to mention that the gameplay looks extremely appealing!

The ambinet occlusion stuff is great and I like how the voxels are brighter on the edges to make them look less boxy but I think it'd be cool if you actually rounded the edges. Okay, maybe don't round them but erode/tesselate instead. I know it might be pretty difficult but I think it'd be worth it. That way the terrain would look more natural and it would stand apart from Minecraft and its numerous clones.

Quarry, your signature has gotten pretty big ...

So will you be able to walk miles away from your fort and explore the world or are these men unable to leave the area? will your game throw in those other games in as cameo cities you can possibly trade/visit/get quests from/burn down and replace it with your own?

Terrain is theoretically infinite, but at the moment you will run out of memory! Once I get disk-writing working presumably you could build a fortress as big as you'd like, or send groups of dwarves miles and miles away.

I've toyed with the idea of smoother terrain, and I might take a look at it after I have the basic gameplay mechanics down. Maybe marching cubes, or ramps.

Blocks drop resources!



Mostly this week I've been working on performance improvements, though.
