Patch 1.5 & Crucible Survival Mode Released


Hello Backers,

We're just chucking out a quick update to let you know that at long last we have released Patch 1.5 and the Free Crucible DLC, the combination of which includes dozens of changes but most importantly it features the brand new survival mode.

 This is especially relevant for all our backers as the Crucible was chosen to be developed as the Flex Goal that was earned as part of our crowdfunding campaign.

We've had a lot of fun working on and testing this mode and we hope that you'll enjoy it too!

You can read more about the Crucible and Patch 1.5 in our release post, or if you want a more in depth look you can have a gander through the full patch notes. Of course you could always just boot up the game and give it a try for yourself!

Until next time,

Last Chance to Get: WFTO Statuettes


Darkest Greetings Underlord,

It is with great sadness that we have to announce Eucl3D, the supplier who produces 3D prints for a number of developers, will be closing its doors next week.

As such we're dropping you a quick line to let you know that after this weekend (Sunday 11 /Dec / 2016) it will no longer be possible to redeem codes for or purchase the three WFTO Statuettes from Eucl3D.

We felt it prudent to advise our Kickstarter backers as soon as possible as a number of you will have received discount codes, while anyone who pledged at Tier 7 and above will have received a code to redeem for a free statuette. These codes should still be valid if you have not used them and any orders made on or before Sunday will be fulfilled.

To use your code simply enter the code at checkout in the relevant area. Also please be aware that there may be a customs charge if you live outside the US, as this is where Eucl3D is based.

We're proud to have worked with Eucl3D on these figures and we're extremely pleased with how they turned out, as are many of our fans. They're a little physical manifestation of the years of hard work we put in and continue to put in to War for the Overworld, something that we can use to remind ourselves everything we achieved together and with the help of our fans.

We wish the team a Eucl3D the best of luck as they move on to new things. Please be sure to drop by their shop and also to tweet @Eucl3D with your thanks if you do own one of their products.
