Craft the World is a game from Dekovir that combines aspects of sandbox, strategy, and god-simulation games. Explore different worlds populated by dangerous creatures, build a dwarf fortress, gather resources, and craft all the items, weapons, and armor you need.
Features[edit | edit source]
God-simulation[edit | edit source]
You control a tribe of dwarves in real-time by giving them commands to dig in certain places, attack enemy creatures, and build houses and other structures. You'll need to provide your dwarves food and clothing, as well as help them with magic when fighting against other inhabitants of the world. You start the game with one dwarf and gain additional dwarves as your experience level increases.
Sandbox game[edit | edit source]
Each game level has many layers of earth to explore, from the sky down to boiling subterranean lava. The level is randomly generated as an island, restricted by natural boundaries: oceans on the edges, lava beneath it, and the sky above. Other features include day and night and changing weather conditions. The worlds differ in size, humidity, temperature, terrain, and flora and fauna. Abandoned halls and rooms with treasure are hidden somewhere deep within the islands.
Crafting[edit | edit source]
Every world consists of blocks, and the player can collect almost every block. While the dwarves gather resources by digging dirt, cutting trees, and breaking blocks, they find scrolls with recipes of new blocks and items. One feature of the game is a user-friendly system of recipes for crafting. The recipes are organized and easily accessible. You can craft dozens of different items: building blocks for houses, furniture, decorations, weapons, armor, ammunition, and food for your dwarves.
RTS[edit | edit source]
At the outset you find the recipes for basic tools and items, and build a small house with places to sleep and eat. Then, the size of the tribe increases and catches the attention of other inhabitants of the world. Most of them are night creatures and dwell underground. The worlds are full of fantasy creatures like zombies, skeletons, goblins, beholders, ghosts, giant spiders, and others. Some of them pay little attention to the dwarves, as long as the dwarves do not come into their field of vision. Others gather into quite large groups and try to break into the dwarves’ residence.
Tower defense[edit | edit source]
Especially dangerous are the waves of monsters that appear from time to time from portals. So, do not neglect to build a safe haven with strong walls and numerous trapdoors, cells, firing towers, and secret passageways.
Magic[edit | edit source]
As a divine being, you possess various spells. You can speed up the movement of the dwarves, open small portals, illuminate dark caves to scare away monsters, evoke natural magic in the form of rain or tree growth, hurl fireballs at the monsters’ heads, and find useful resources and hidden rooms underground, thereby helping to speed up resource extraction, exploration of the world, and the population growth of your assistants.
Different worlds[edit | edit source]
When a player’s tribe has increased to a large number of dwarfs dressed in sturdy armor, and behind them stands an imposing castle, it's time to make every effort to find and restore the portal whose ruins are hidden deep within the level. The portal will help you to open a pathway to the next new world. Perhaps you will enter an icy, mountainous country, where you will have to conquer territory held by the evil yeti, or a wild jungle world where there is a constant tropical downpour and it is easy to drown.
