War for the Overworld

If you’ve not heard of War for the Overworld then you at least must have heard of Dungeon Keeper — its inspiration, mentor and father figure. Well, War for the Overworld has wrapped up a successful Kickstarter, and is now proudly announcing its entry into the beta testing phase.

Backers of the project on Kickstarter should look out for an email explaining the details soon (if you haven’t already got it). If you didn’t back the project, you can pay $22 to jump in on Steam instantly.

I got it on Tuesday, let’s just say it may be best to wait a few months before jumping in on this one. This isn’t what one expects from a Beta on any level, it is most certainly in an Alpha state. It looks like it holds potential and it looks like it will be nothing short of brilliant, but right now, it still has a long way to go.

 

Yeah I did a little research on this before throwing money down. I didn’t end up buying it yet, and i stress yet. It will be in my collection eventually, but when I can play it as a full game I think. I’ll hold on to my fond memories of Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2 just a little longer.

 

I gave a $90 contribution to its kickstarter campaign in order to gain a physical copy. Since I reckon ill enjoy the completed product as much as any triple A game if not more, I ought to give them its equivalent value.

On their website you will find weekly updates to their plans and releases. Thus far it looks very promising. Although this beta of theirs, like many have said is definitely more like an alpha. They are lagging behind in progress, as said in one of their previous posts. Most of the foundations are working but seriously need animations and sound fx. The A.I. are only capable of making a bed and wondering around, with a very basic strike animation.

To me it would take a years work to complete it, but ill download and play every update they make :)

 

I almost bought this as well. Until I read the section that stated what was actually in the game. The list is very short, it is truly Bedrock Beta as they call it. But I will keep waiting and watching cause I loved the original Dungeon Keeper games.
