WFTO Wednesday #19: The Bedrock Beta


Hey folks,

We have some somber news… and we know you’re going to hate hearing yet again…

We’re delaying the Bedrock Beta… for a few more hours.

Steam keys are now available to our backers through Humble Store, a content distribution platform from the folks behind the Humble Indie Bundle.

Please remember that while we are calling this period “The Bedrock Beta” the current mechanics and assets make this more of a pre-alpha in terms of what is available. It is very much the bedrock of the game.

We did our best to squash the major bugs, but we wouldn’t suggest hanging up your bug net just yet, there are a few lurking in the tunnels you are about to explore — more details below on how to post feedback and bug reports.


How to Download the Bedrock Beta

  • Go to this page
  • Type in the email address attached to your Kickstarter or Paypal account (whichever you used to back us)
  • You’ll be emailed a link to your War for the Overworld product page
  • Generate a Steam key from this page
  • Redeem the key on Steam
  • Enjoy!

If you have any trouble with this process, please visit this thread.

The Maps:

  • Sandbox: Tons of gold and huge amounts of space await you in Sandbox — dig as you please and create a beautiful (hideous?) dungeon for your minions to call home.
  • Goodly Conflict: A good amount of space with a fortress in the center of the map filled with heroes — you’ll have to fight your way through their army in order to fill your coffers with the rich gold seams that they jealously guard.
  • Parmesan Cheese (Coming soon): A wild Underlord (Steve)* dares you to invade his dungeon with whatever ragtag group of minions you can muster up — make him regret his challenge.

*Steve’s isn’t too smart (his AI is rudimentary at best), but his minions will certainly be worthy foes.


The Stuff:

  • Rooms: Lair, Treasury, Slaughterpen, Archive, Foundry
  • Spells: Summon Worker, Possession
  • Minions: Blood Imp, Gnarling, Gargoyle, Augre, Cultist
  • Heroes: Firebreather, Juggernaut
  • Game Systems: Digging, Fortifying, Gold & Mana, Portals
  • Unit Systems: Hunger, Sleep, Basic Combat (no abilities yet)


Livestream in 15 minutes (8:00PM UTC)

Don’t forget to join us during the livestream in about an hour on our Twitch channel. We’ll field questions, discuss life, and perhaps drink (or nap) a little bit as we count down to the beta being available.


Feedback & Bug Reports

Please direct all feedback to our Bedrock Beta forums or the official WFTO Subreddit. For bug reports, please use the Bedrock Beta Bug Reports forum. If you just want to chat, feel free to join us in our IRC channel.

We will be diving back into the Veins of Evil next week once the beta is up and running.



Until next time Underlord,

– WFTO Team
