Hi all, welcome to the official release post!
Overworld is a one thumb mini RPG, out of beta today! Cast spells, complete quests, and unlock 35 classic fantasy characters in 10 minute sessions. This world needs a hero!
- Traditional roguelike
- Simple UI
- Recognizable characters
- Intuitive mechanics
- 10 minute sessions
It’s been an amazing journey working with a small group of artists, engineers, and other contributors. Quick timeline:
- 2017 – Code is cleaned up to work with the closure compiler. RNG and state refactored to be fully deterministic. Game engine and graphics decoupled.
- 2019 – Server code written in Node.js to reuse game engine for validation.
- 2021 – Full time work commences, beta testing begins on Android. Social media, professional sound, 5×5 grid, many new features.
- 2022 – Q2 launch!
If you’ve been playing the beta, don’t expect anything new this release. We are happy to launch on this build as it appears stable. (Please report bugs!) Otherwise, thanks for stopping by. Check out our social media for other updates, a bunch of videos should pop up this week.
