Now Available on!

Hello Backers,    

We’ve got some great news, especially for those of you who have longed for a strong DRM-Free alternative to the Steam version of War for the Overworld. Today we’re proud to announce that War for the Overworld and its DLC have launched on! 

In short there is now a DRM-Free version of the game that supports all the expansions and DLCs. So if you’re a fan of DRM-Free gaming you can now finally get a version of the game outside of Steam, with almost all the features of the Steam version. This includes online multiplayer, tracked achievements, and cloud saving. 

 Kickstarter backers that want to claim a copy of WFTO on as well, can do so by contacting and enclosing their backer email address. We’ll send you a key to redeem which will provide you with the relevant items for your tier. 

You can read more about the release in our announcement post, and if you have any questions be sure to check out our FAQ on the matter!

A Surprise to Be Sure, but a Welcome One


Darkest greetings Underlord,

Whilst the Code Imps have been hard at work scrubbing up WFTO’s multiplayer, your Cultists have been busy scrying what the future may hold in their crystal ball. Below you may witness their efforts:  

Although usually misty and unclear, today an aetherial message did appear. Upon spying the symbols one Cultist was heard to remark: “A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.” I think we can all agree on that one, Underlord.

Stay tuned,

Charity Announcement: The Cynical Imp


Hello Backers,

We just wanted to send you a special message to thank you once more for all the faith you placed in us years ago.

We especially want to thank our higher tier backers who voted to allow the Kickstarter & Founders Dungeon Themes to be sold for charity all those years ago.Thanks to that we're pleased to announce that the Kickstarter & Founders themes can also be attained by donating higher amounts via this DLC. Which will only serve to raise further funds for a good cause!


Thank you for all your support and generosity!
