War For The Overworld – fused the best components from the RTS and god game genres to create War for the Overworld; here you will find familiar elements from Dungeon Keeper, Overlord, StarCraft and Evil Genius. Your domain lies beneath the surface of this realm, and it is here that you will begin to build your sinful empire. The forces of good in this land will do everything in their power to stop you.
To get an impression about wfto, one should play Dungeon Keeper or try the new playable showcase. A door will be unlocked once they reach certain funding goals. This week they passed the 30K mark, so another door opened:
Hey folks, You’ve unlocked Door #2, well done. Venture inside our Playable Showcase to see what you’ve unlocked. We are working on some quick fixes to make the showcase play a bit better — thanks for your feedback!
Today we’re going to talk about Nexus, the Dungeoneer tool, and modding WFTO.
Subterranean Games wanted to cultivate a relationship with the players who enjoyed creating (or just downloading) mods for their games. So they chose to partner with Nexus Mods to help build a modding community for War for the Overworld.
A briefly overview of that Dungeoneer is the tool beeing using to build the game, however it’s going to be more in-depth and explain what it means for players with and without modding experience — and why it’s going to be awesome for everyone.
For the players that do not have modding experience but enjoy tools that enable map creation (similar to the Warcraft & Starcraft map editors) Dungeoneer will be everything you want. All the tools used to create levels will be easily accessible through a user-friendly GUI which will allow the player to create maps using the assets that are included in the game. You’ll also be able to import other assets into the tool quite easily.
We know how tedious it can be to create and implement your mods — Dungeoneer is our solution. Dungeoneer is being built by the same minds that created some of the most popular mods on Nexus such as “EVE” by weijesen (Jack Wong), “Reanimated” by Alendor (Patrick DiLillo), and “ElectroCity” by MGE (David Brodsky). These mods have been downloaded millions of times by Nexus users.
Subterranean Games got a lot planned this week, here’s some of the highlights:
- Wednesday: Will be posting the first community vote and talking about an exciting feature of the game.
- Friday: Join your fellow backers in a criminally fun competition to win some early WFTO swag (Hint: drink lots of tea, pet many cats).
