The UK-based indie games publisher/developer Team17 and the indie games developer Warpzone Studios, today announced with great thrill and delight that the full version of their dwarven mining colony sim “Hammerting” is coming to PC (via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store) on November 16th, 2021.
Nestled away in the Mountains of Mara (and currently, Steam Early Access) Hammerting follows a community of dwarves as they explore, build, craft, and mine to develop their stronghold. From humble beginnings with a handful of dwarves, develop their base to unparalleled depths underneath the mountain range, as they send valuable resources, weapons, and supplies to the surface.
Throughout its time in Steam Early Access over the past 10 months, Hammerting has received a hoard of updates that’s built upon a solid foundation. Launching today, the Epic Crafting Update, introduces a plethora of new content including armour and rings, equippable lanterns, valuable epic level items, an overhaul to Mountain Lore and a wealth of other new content ready to be explored. Full patch notes for the Epic Crafting Update can be found on Steam.
Past updates have included; The Fluids Update, which brought lava and water to the cavernous environments the dwarves call home, together with new tavern and drinks recipes, ingredients, and knowledges; The Overworld Update introduced an overhauled Overworld featuring procedurally generated factions, locations, and roads; and June’s Automation Update streamlined dwarven efficiency alongside the addition of a win state that challenges players to prove their dwarven mining prowess.
Hammerting Key Features:
Control the destiny of the dwarves: As the colony grows active management of the dwarves, including the friendships they make and their morale, will be key to helping the war effort
Design and create the ultimate base: Bore and upgrade a variety of rooms, from forges and sculpting studios to taverns and auxiliary functions and help the colony craft the ultimate base
Help with the war effort: Build and upgrade a variety of items through a deep levelling system
