Hammerting is a dwarven mining sim game that launched into Early Access on Steam and Epic Game Store at the end of October 2020. Set in the dwarven stronghold deep under the Mountains of Mara,Hammerting tasks players with exploring, building, crafting, and mining as they develop the ultimate dwarven base and send valuable resources, weapons, and supplies to the Overworld to aid in the fight against the evil that rages high above. Today, Warpzone Studios and Team17 have released update 4 titled, the Fluid Update, which brings a treasure trove of new content to the mysterious Mountains of Mara.
With the addition of fluids to Hammerting, dwarves will find water and lava spawning in biomes throughout the game, which can be harnessed to further the dwarves’ cause – or end in death if players aren’t careful. New tavern and drink recipes, ingredients, and knowledges are now available, along with the addition of job priorities and dwarf sovereignty, meaning players will need to improve various knowledges to be able to recruit certain dwarves. Performance improvements and bug and crash fixes are also included in the update, helping to improve the game for both new and existing players.
Key changes added with the fluid update include:
Control the destiny of the dwarves: As the colony grows active management of the dwarves, including the friendships they make and their morale, will be key to helping the war effort
Design and create the ultimate base: Bore and upgrade a variety of rooms, from forges and sculpting studios to taverns and auxiliary functions and help the colony craft the ultimate base
Help with the war effort: Build and upgrade a variety of items through a deep levelling system
Discover valuable materials to quarry: Venture into the bowels of the mountainside & face increasingly perilous situations
