Craft The World is a unique sandbox strategy game, the mix of Dungeon Keeper, Terraria and Dwarf Fortress.
Explore a random generated world populated by dangerous creatures, build a dwarf fortress, gather resources, and craft all the items, weapons, and armor you need.

You control a tribe of dwarves 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Craft The World reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Am not a big writer but after I read the review and I would also be convinced by video on you tube, I bought the Game. Anyone expecting a quick quick zag zag is unfortunately wrong with this Game. The Dwarfs are not the fastest and brightest at times. For the first World, it took me just under 110std. Well have completely dug the mountain over at the end and worked on my Defense which every 45 minutes there is an attack wave from the initial of a small handful of Undead to the Army of Undead, who Unfortunately also cannot be obstructed by Moats. My Strategy at times is to dig at least 4 Field Widths right and left of my building and drop the guys deep first. So that they then have to get past my Defence from the bottom. The young can stack up high to achieve something, but so far they have only been able to skip a maximum of 3 Fields. Since on the Surface important Raw Materials regrow, Wood, Fish and Berries I have laid the entire defense underground but everyone likes as he likes;-) The Graphics are Lovingly designed and the Ki of The Dwarfs is sometimes to run out of hair but the och makes it incredibly happy to watch the boys get to know. The Game is set up 2 Layered, meant to mean that it hides a layer behind the overlook (you look at the funny drift like with an ant mound behind a glass pane). Above the Earthline comes after the 2 layers of the 2 layers a picturesque Landscape emerges, while below the Earth line only dark Rock appears. On the Side, the whole thing is separated by an unusable Sea, Above you also bump to the end at some point. Below Does lava appear At some point, a hot Foot Bath I would not recommend the dwarfs there;-) World 1 houses different Animals for Food extraction and Leather for the first Armor, which are changed in World 2, thus visually occurring completely different but with the same extraction, the same in World 3. What is with World 4 I can not say yet despite almost 300 std I still rule in world 3 around ^-^ there is also a Day Night cycle in which a nice Undead come to visit, unfortunately not to sip Nice tea and chat luckily they disappear above the Earth line at sunne n rise in a small Feur Smoke mixture:-) The Quest Story is well ... Somehow not really present. In Principle, you have a Technolgi ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ which is to be explored and the guardians to find and defeat as they house components to repair the Portal and enter the next World, there you have to repeat the whole thing from the front. But I am excited by the fun Of The game, the Detailed Game world and the tricks and their beautifully animated tools and mesrails, which they gain with each further freely played section from the Research branch. The Food gain is a challenge in itself, which always feed the Guys not. Well have not yet tested what happens if I do not offer them at least 2 things to build up their abilities only laboriously. Walk Away from those Who are constantly in use Lumberjacks; Miners and in Attacks those of the Archer, Warrior and, a little later, The magician (can freeze enemies with Manufactured potions-cure-or turn them into Proverbial Snails and then roast them in Fireballs) still give the Professions of the Hunter, Miller, Carpenter, Blacksmith, Cook, Fisherman's (hope not to have Forgetting) The boys only learn if they carry out the Activity. And at a maximum of 3 talents per Dwarf where the first random one tries not to let the little wusler die;-) To find an end I'm thrilled only annoying is that the Ki is left to be desired from time to time when the boys return to 3/4 des weg instead of building the part as they planned to start. Only 1 helps wait until Dwarf xyz which suddenly does not have to go on the clo or got hunger. Or what I do take control of the dwarf itself and build itself, which is locally related but faster, but you don't have any more sight what the other bunch are doing ^^ but the dive after time has somehow always noticed at one so on the m otto ey old we have long boredom * lach * So I hope that helped one or the other I go now at least ne round after Iron coal silver gold mythril Fool and fall on the side still some Trees and Shrubs, and at the evening there are Fitness Exercises with the Undead.
I expected more from this game. But the dwarves AI is weak, they don't do much by themselves. This is basically just Terraria with a team of workers under your control instead of a single character - not my cup of tea.
