King under the Mountain is a simulation-based strategy/management game where you design, build and run a settlement in a fantasy world. Then, once you're up and running, you can send out groups of adventurers to explore and loot other players' creations, playing out through turn-based tactical combat. You start a game on a randomly-generated area map with a few settlers, tools and other provisions, and slowly grow into a self-sustaining village, town, or eventually, a city. You play as one of several fantasy races each with their own unique gameplay mechanics.

King under the Mountain is a simulation-based settlement-building strategy game inspired by Dwarf Fortress, The Settlers and Prison Architect. Now in Early Access on Steam!

I'm a solo developer who's been working on King under the Mountain for 5 or so years now, most of it documented right here on IndieDB! I describe it as a simulation-based settlement-building strategy game set in a fantasy world. The gameplay is inspired by Dwarf Fortress, The Settlers and Dungeon Keeper, and it uses the visual style of Prison Architect and Rimworld.

After a long journey (and perhaps just as far still to go to 1.0 release), today the game has launched on Steam in Early Access. Here's the most recent trailer:
