New Features

Picking up and Dropping

  • You can now pick up and drop units
  • Left click picks up, right click drops
  • This is very, very rudimentary right now – no animations, units float midair, etc


  • You can now slap units
  • Slapping will knock units back
  • Slapping will also deal a small amount of damage… try not to kill all of your imps!

UI Improvements
This is the first of many sets of UI improvements that you will be seeing in the coming months. Our main focus with this first update was fixing a few core usability issues that were affecting many users.

  • UI is now anchored to the bottom of the screen
  • Removed artifacts around some buttons
  • Cursor will no longer change to pickaxe mode when over buttons
  • Units will now be highlighted on mouseover
  • Basic tooltips added
  • Pickaxe cursor has been updated for enhanced visual clarity
  • Tiles are now highlighted when dragging to build a room
  • UI is now hidden in possession

Fog of War
Please note that this is a stopgap solution to make the game easier to play until we revamp the fog of war system and have properly lit tagged tiles.

  • Gold tiles are now visible through fog of war
  • Tagged tiles are now visible through fog of war

Bug Fixes

  • Clicking ‘Main Menu’ on the opening splash screen now will take the player to the main menu instead of map select
