Mid-year Update, 2023
What it do, minimalist turn-based strategy fans.
Time and tide, the clock ticks, the wheel turns. After six months hiatus on a fairly stable build, Overworld 1.18 something or other hit the world like a ton of bricks. And well, whether it was our first major YouTube coverage in the form of one DavionFuxa (to have the pivotal update named after him), or the strength of a 40% quest volume increase (pause for applause), we have seen traffic at least double yes, !! double !! from about 5 daily users to 10, in the past couple of weeks.
I dunno, it’s pretty exciting. The Discord channel is abuzz. I love my hobby!
So things are chugging! I think the new quests added a ton to replayability, they include:
- The tunnel quest (loosely based on the Mines of Moria)
- The gems quest (watch out for the crazy prospector)
- The tax quest (to pay for the mayor’s lawn you say? Unbelievable!)
- The picnic quest (try the bull’s picnic when playing the gnome!)
- The witch’s quest (eye of frog! Organ of newt!)
I’m filling this in because it’s been a while, letting the world know this site is alive. I’m actually trying to iron out some pretty ugly bugs at the moment. When your code isn’t deployed for 6 months or more, you’re bound to have some kinks getting the pipeline moving again. For instance I had to upgrade some major version of the Google API to keep publishing, and it’s like blehhhh.. OH, I almost forgot! We launched on itch.io, blog! We did!
I have the next big feature in mind, and the list of requests and possibilities never shrinks! Hit us up for some good times, and take care out there!
Update: After a few rounds of bug fixes and the minor addition of POTIONS, we are now proudly on Overworld v1.23!
Always wanted to try Overworld, but lack an Android device? Come play on the web! To celebrate this, I just did a long-ass post on r/roguelikedev to commemorate the event. […]
For completeness, this is a record of relevant game development activities in the year 2022. An excellent year for Red Asteroid Games and Overworld, bringing as it did the v1.0 […]
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 […]
Overworld is the shortest roguelike in town. Studies show the brain can only focus on a few things at once. So to progress in a game, and get good at […]
…and you can read a bunch of posts along the way here! Not much further to go now, I think. Posting this video because it will be outdated soon. ;p
Overworld is set in a rudimentary medieval fantasy world with overlaid game mechanics. World building is not addressed directly in gameplay. It is developed through the biography or “bio” section […]
Getting something out of the way first: This is a mobile F2P game, which loses some folk right off the bat. I feel the free offering offers a mostly complete […]
Early in the week I pushed the latest build to the play store. A day later I noticed I had the client pointed at the internal server rather than prod. […]
