Indie games publisher Team17 and the indie games developer Warpzone Studios today announced with great joy and excitement that they have just released the “Automation” update for their dwarven mining colony sim “Hammerting” (which is currently in Early Access on Steam, Epic Game Store, and GOG).
The update streamlines several features in Hammerting and makes it more efficient to build the most prosperous mining colony in the Mountains of Mara; carts will now pick up and deliver items just like their dwarven counterparts; dwarves will automatically equip the best version of an item they have in their tool belt and will deposit unassigned carried items for future use; and vaults can now be built and used to store varying amounts of gold.
The update also introduces a win state to Hammerting, triggered by an in-game quest players will be challenged to prove their dwarven mining prowess by completing an exigent labour– upon completion players will still be able to continue their colony and remain nestled away in the mountains for as long as they choose. Several tweaks, bug fixes, and quality of life changes have also been included, full patch notes for the Hammerting Automation Update are available on Steam.
Control the destiny of the dwarves: As the colony grows, active management of the dwarves, including their morale and work assignments, will be key to making them all rich like trolls!
Design and create the ultimate base: Bore and upgrade a variety of rooms, from forges and arcane workshops to taverns and auxiliary functions and help the colony craft the ultimate base
Empower your dwarves: Build and upgrade a variety of items through a deep levelling system
Discover valuable materials to quarry: Venture into the bowels of the mountainside & face increasingly perilous situations.
