Survivors of Ragnarök is a city-building-management-survival game about chickens.


Explore

Lead your company of dwarfs into high mountain passes, deep into dangerous forests, scorching deserts, and into the dark underbelly of the earth and back.





Unique and Quirky Creatures

Encounter Bizarre and dangerous creatures from dwarf-eating-tiger-snails, flying pigs, bishop-fishes, and Chickthulhu (100% our idea and totally not suggested by an annoying community member named Thoktaz).


Yeah we know, it's awesome.


Gotta Catch 'em All!

Unlock dozens of unique dwarfs only to die by your hands moments later.

Single Player Campaign

With all the dry humor, charm, wit, and satire you've come to expect from us bundled in an epic historically accurate retelling of the events after everyone's favorite end of the world scenario (next to the zombie-apocalypse, but trust me we have that covered). Expect to be taking part in such epic and grand historical battles such as the Battle of Basing and the Battle of Svolder.

Bellow we have provided a historically accurate depiction of the Battle of Clontarf on April 23, 1024 (your gonna have to trust us on this one guys, it's legit).


Beautiful Hand-Drawn Pixel Art

Now this might just be our personal bias, but we believe we have some pretty sweet pixel art. Each and every pixel lovingly hand-drawn and animated frame by frame.

Biomes are a pretty big deal in procedurally generated games and they will be a really big deal when it comes to Survivors of Ragnarok as well. I've thought about setting up the biomes to be small chunks of the game world, but that simply left a lot to be desired.

Now what if each biome was a completely separate game world? That's what we have in mind.

Take a look.

Now, we spent a fair bit of time working on the isometric engine for this new world and there is still plenty to be done.

For one thing, this new isometric world needs to be randomly generated. These photo's are just some stuff I put together by hand once the engine work was finished.

After that, the saving and loading of each game world needs to be done. It shouldn't be an incredible feat to accomplish, but it will require some interesting file structures. (Think about how many maps will need to be saved in a 50x50x10 isometric game world!)

Finally, it is important to note, that each biome will need it's own generation algorithms to insure every biome has it's own unique look and feel. That very well may be the most time consuming task of them all.

So, although we don't have an update for you quite yet, we have big things in the works for you.


I hope you look forward to the new Biome system as much as we do.

So ehm.. I am pretty sure my hope that this will continue/finish development is misplaced? :( Especially considering the developers haven't logged in for over 1.5 years now.

Hello developers, any ETA on a new working release?

I just bought the game yesterday and realized there's nothing to play since the game won't install for me and other people here as well.

Since the Desura install doesn't work, could you please upload an older working version until everything is fixed?

Why are there only downloads available for Linux and Macintosh?
And why is the Survivors of Ragnarök Settler Edition still on "Pre-order" status?

It seems like for the first time I will ask Desura for a refund, unless you come up with a good explanation about what's going on.

You said that you avoid answering here because of all the negativity, well maybe it's time to break the ice?

Okay, look. I had very high hopes for this game and I bought it in 2012, hoping for a good game. The problem is, this is never getting finished, that much is clear. I know you guys are hobby developers and I know real life often happens, but this is completely unacceptable. You cannot realistically expect us to go years without any significant progress being made on the project. This game has barely changed since 2012!

When you release a game on Alpha Funding and you take customers' money, you have a responsibility to make an effort to complete the game. Every time in the past when we complained because it looked like the game was making absolutely no progress you would come up with excuses and justifications, making promises that things would change. It's now two years since I bought this and nothing has changed. The project is very clearly dead in the water. Why don't you just come clean and admit you're never going to finish this, because that much is clear as day. You took our money and all we've got to show for it is a half-assed alpha that barely works.

Thank you for destroying my trust when it comes to Alpha Funding games.

Wait, don't wait, you know you can remove the game from your library for good right? So if you are so certain it's never going to be finsihed and you would really like to stay all doom and gloom, please do so and stfu.

If you just purchased the game your a ******* idiot as it's quite clear the game is in stasis. If you already purchased the game chalk it up to something they could or could not pan out.

This isn't a AA title, the developers were in this when Desura was new and **** happens. They have contacted us all numerous times in the past. No matter what they said, most of you just bitched, moaned, whined and complained, -->>with a status update<<--. So why the **** would they bother responding to bunch of jerk off ******** who ignore the status updates?

I wouldn't, my response would be "Wait or don't ********, we never gave you a release date and said we are dealing with life best as possible!" Again, Blizzards philosophy is when it's done it's done, wait or don't they don't give a ****.

By the way Craft the World is a shiney piece of plastic looking **** and If you'd read the reviews doesn't play or work very well *******.

Wow, you know at least with Blizzard they actually keep us informed of they are working instead of you know, lying around on their piles of WoW gold.

No is arguing that **** happens and stuff get delayed. We are arguing the fact of the lack of communication from the developers of informing of what the **** is even going on. It's not that goddamn hard respond back to us, hell you wrote that **** above so obviously you read.

Life can **** us hard, doesn't **** us hard enough to not talk, unless you know DIE.

You, sir, are a baboon. As paying customers we have every right to complain when a developer takes our money and fails to deliver the goods.

Haven't been playing it for very long, but it is certainly amazing right now, despite being a bit buggy and lacking content! If you like the sims, minecraft, adorable pixel chickens, and dwarves who climb blocks like newborn kittens climb stairs, you will love this game!

FrenchRiceGames, I am disappoint D: This game is in development for almost one full year. The last updates added gimmicky nonsense like pumpkin patches and candy, rather than adding to the base of the game itself. Other games in a similar state of development offer much more actual gameplay and potential. (Project Zomboid, Towns, heck even Kenshi) Reading the update logs makes me feel like the developers don't even care about the game. I mean sure they pump in tons of self-made pixel art of things…
