Genres: Strategy, Simulation

Hammerting is a vertical dwarven mining colony sim with RPG elements. Manage a clan of colourful Dwarves, establish an epic mining operation, craft legendary swords and delve deep for greater glory, riches... and danger. With conflict raging on the surface, the Dwarves pledge to delve deep and as master craftspeople, will produce and supply what is needed to support their allies. From humble beginnings, you start with a handful of Dwarves who need to set up their operations quickly. However, as you progress, your small clan will expand and become known throughout the Overworld for their skill and premium craftsmanship. CRAFTING FOR VICTORY Allies on the surface will have all manner of requests. Dwarves may find themselves asked to craft a plethora of silver swords against an oncoming vampire army, or alternatively, for an elf princess’ coronation, they’ll be tasked with creating nothing less than a Legendary Diamond-Encrusted Gold Crown of Divine Ruling +3. With the Overworld in need, every successful delivery takes you one step closer to triumph. As your Dwarves grow in skill and your base expands, build conveyor belts and elevators to free them of manual labour. COLORFUL PERSONALITIES Does Åglöf’s fancy ancestry clash with Vargskreva’s humble upbringing? Is your explorer afraid of the dark? Has your master crafter reached their Ballmer Peak? Aim for success and exploit the strengths of your Dwarves, as well as their weaknesses. Each Dwarf is richly and uniquely defined through its stats, Dwarven ancestry, traits, abilities, equipment, move-set and much more, as they are shaped by events occurring in their lives. SKILLED CRAFTSPEOPLE Anyone can craft an Iron Sword, but only Dwarves can haggle a Crystal Cave Dragon to sell her fiery Plasma Breath, pump it up to an Andthril Forge of Doom and use it to craft the... Iron Sword +2. With every strike of the hammer on an anvil, a skilled Dwarf has a better chance of achieving a critical result, giving you better and improved gear. LIVING CAVE It is as they say – “Fortune favours the bold”, and only in the deepest depths will you find the most powerful materials, the warmest magma, the rarest treasures, but also the most dangerous conditions. Figuring out the fastest and safest route down - and up again - is a chief concern, but you’ll have plenty of unique Dwarven mechanisms to help you to do so. Hammerting features liquid and physics mechanics for pumping sizzling lava to your hearths, brewing hoppy beer, tossing burning torches down shafts to light up the unknown and more! MODDING Want to bring your own spin to Hammerting? We’re building this game with modding in mind! A bundled SDK will allow you to build pre-packaged mods, adding anything from new names, to plugging in full-blown systems in native C/C++. Documentation, additional hooks, and general support for this is something we plan for post-launch updates. END NOTE Please wishlist the game, and feel free to come join us on Discord, visit our Facebook page and obviously follow us on Twitter!

Hammerting Critic Reviews

Hammerting is a good example of how solid individual mechanics sometimes fail to offer more than the sum of their parts in terms of gameplay. The development team has put together an interesting dwarf clan simulation and management title. It has even created an engaging if derivative universe for the player to interact with.

Hammerting is a good exponent of modern colony management titles. A certain amount of grinding and some HUB problems are its weak points, but it will still give you many hours of gameplay.

Hammerting is a little rough around the edges in some aspects of the gameplay. The annoying AI of the dwarfs can be off-putting when you are playing the game. The devs seem very active on the discussion thread on Steam so I would imagine they have taken note of players concerns on some aspects of the gameplay. It isn’t a terrible game, it just needs a little more work to make it a thoroughly enjoyable playing experience for the player.

Hey Poor Player

Hammerting’s level of character detail and large, explorable areas offer promise for those who love resource management and base-building games. The graphics and concept hold up, and the game runs well. Adding combat, trade, exploration, and an overworld mechanic with faction relationships to a colony sim is a major undertaking that will pay off well if the systems can become fully integrated. However, the game is not polished enough to deliver a dependable experience, and despite its scope, it offers few new ideas to make it memorable. Developers promise more quality of life improvements, but being a small team, the modding community may have to take up the slack as they did with RimWorld. Thankfully, modding is encouraged in C++. Time will tell if Hammerting is a diamond in the rough, or whether it becomes buried under its own ambition.
