Update #15: The Augre, Totalbiscuit, Team Page Update, and more!

Hey folks,

Since we have over a thousand new backers since our last update — we’d like to welcome you all to War for the Overworld. Today our update will focus on the Augre, Totalbiscuit’s video for WFTO, a team page update and more!

The Augre

The Augres are descended from an ancient sect of Ogres who revered the unparalleled Dwarven mastery over metalwork so much that they began to worship Torag, Dwarven God of the forge. They then began to reshape their lives around metallurgy and the creation of intricately designed machines — after some time these creatures became so enamoured with expertly crafted metalwork that they began to augment themselves with their creations by physically grafting metal and machines to their bodies to improve their skills in battle and at the forges where they work.

These creatures will scavenge metal from their fallen foes and use it to improve the modifications they have made upon their own bodies — increasing their survivability and adding to their already vicious arsenal of weaponry.

The Totalbiscuit Video

We’d like to convey our heartfelt thanks to Totalbiscuit for giving our demo a try and making a video about us!

While Totalbiscuit was distracted making that video Stumpy the Blood Imp managed to steal his top hat and is wearing it proudly as he continues to dig towards our Kickstarter goal.

We would like to express our thanks and welcome to all you backers who learned about our project because of him and remind them to check out our previous update while there’s still time to vote on the design for our Archive.

      @ Lukas: I pulled that name out of my "random naming hat" a while ago -- turns out I had either read it somewhere before or (less likely) managed to come up with the same name. I'll make sure to rename it to be unique for our final release... how embarrassing! I don't know how that happened (I was really smitten with the name too, and now I have to change a few rhymes for our Bio of her. Darn it!!) ) :

      Thanks for your post, it would have been a pretty awkward thing to learn after the game's release!

      Or they could be both inspired from a common third party, very seldomly things comes from nothing.

      @Lukas I think that could be the exact Torag they are referring to. They even describe Torag as the "Dwarven God of the forge".

      You might have to change Torag, it seems to be too close to

      Saw your fan art earlier Elizabeth. Looks great.

      Is the Augre an Empire creature or one of our evil minions? The part about the Dwarves makes me think he might be good?

      Damnit you're showing off more critters I want to do fanart of now :) This one with the Oculus is keeping me busy enough!
