What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have ambitious plans for the world of Hammerting. We plan to use Early Access as a time to work with our community to better refine the title, test and introduce new features, and work towards a finished product. Being able to support ourselves as a studio is also critical in this time, so the money we make during Early Access is vital to helping us achieve our goals.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Hammerting will take 6 months to a year to complete the feature list we've laid out to fully realise our vision for the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have more features, mechanics, and quality of life changes. We plan to use Early Access as a time to better refine how the title should perform, based on our plans for the game and community feedback.

Some of the additions you can look forward to are:
Expanded Cave Life and Exploration
Fluid System
Automation
Beauty and Décor
Enhanced Overworld
Fishing and Farming
Epic Crafting
Dwarven Relations and much more!

The Early Access version already offers a unique experience that will continue to improve and expand as we build upon the world and gameplay systems with each new update.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of Hammerting already has huge procedurally generated maps for you to explore, mine and gather resources to aid the fight raging in the Overworld. Your mining operation will have humble beginnings, but you will soon be expanding your colony as your reputation, and demand for your Dwarves craftsmanship, increases.

At Early Access launch, you can look forward to:
Crafting
Base-building
Dwarf management and recruitment
Exploration
Combat
Progression, including buying and selling items
Cave missions
Overworld missions”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The increasing size and scope of Hammerting may increase the price moderately upon full release or with significant content updates. However, players who purchase during the Early Access period will have access to all future content and updates released up until the full launch of the title.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We already have an extremely active Discord. We will be regularly talking to our community on here and via our social media channels After each release, we plan around the feedback received and prioritise the most important features, bugs and issues in order to show real progress in development to our community”

About This Game

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 a war raging on the surface, the Dwarves pledge to delve deep and as master craftspeople, will produce and supply what is needed to aid their allies. From humble beginnings, you start with a handful of Dwarves who need to set up operations quickly. However, as you progress, your small clan will expand and become known throughout the Upper Realms 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. For an elf princess’s coronation, they’ll wish for 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 triumphing against evil.
As your Dwarves increase 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? Exploit the strengths of your Dwarves, as well as their weaknesses, in order to succeed.
Each Dwarf is richly and uniquely defined through its stats, Dwarven ancestry, traits, abilities, equipment, move set and more as they are shaped by events 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 an... 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 gear.

Living Cave


Dwarves are big on elevators, but not so much on free falling. As such, they have their own takes on Hellevators. For example, members of Clan Steelbrow prefer a traditional shaft dug straight down, straddled by a crane with a 300-meter rope, and nothing but a barrel to stand in. The barrel’s built-in bar is, of course, stocked with ale.

Only in the deepest depths will you find the most powerful materials, the warmest magma, the rarest treasures, and 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 do so.
Hammerting will feature liquid and physics mechanics for pumping lava to your hearths, brewing beer, tossing torches down shafts to light up the unknown and more.

Modding

Want to bring your own spin to Hammerting? No worries, you can mod to your heart’s content!
You can use the bundled SDK to create pre-packaged mods and add or replace any of the game’s assets
This is not just limited to “data” assets such as textures, you can also script and write new full-blown systems in native C++
