WFTO Wednesday #7


Hey folks,

It’s everyone’s favourite day of the week. Following another segment of the (un)holy treat that WFTO Wednesday is we will be hosting a livestream event where we field questions, talk about life, and play a neat prototype of another game that is currently on Kickstarter.


The Priestess


The Priestess is a formidable opponent when backed by powerful allies, however on her own she is fairly weak in combat. Unable to speak, due to her oath to the Church, she is immune to silence effects and can pray for the miracles she needs in battle to serve her allies. Treat her with caution, Underlord, for if she is left untended she shall certainly cause problems for your bloodthirsty horde.

Following the [redacted] wherein Kira the Pure fought her final battle against [redacted], The Church was created to pay homage to her unyielding faith and perseverance over the evil that challenged her lands. The Church’s followers strive to create a realm free of violence and vice and their most devout followers attain the rank of Priestess. Upon attaining this position they are sworn to silence, which must remain unbroken until death in order to ascend to a plane of peaceful existence ruled by the benevolent Goddess.

It may seem counterintuitive that there’s audio associated with a silent unit. We suggest you ignore your brain and treat your eyes to her sounds.

A thing we like: Death Inc.

The writers at Ambient do a much better job explaining the game than we ever could, treat yourself to their words and we think you’ll find it’s a project that’s worth backing.

“Play as Grim T. Livingstone, freelance Reaper, and unleash the plague on 17th century England. Ransack farms, ports and cities, topple knights and noblemen as you battle to increase your pestilential horde.
Back in the Nether, use your harvested souls as currency and expand Death Inc’s base of operations. Hire underlings, build new rooms and refresh the decor. Use all of these to unlock new units, upgrades and special abilities.
Take these back to the surface and continue your fight against the healthy as you spreads fear, loathing and most importantly, the bubonic plague.”

We recently got to play their Kickstarter demo (we’re not saying we started the trend) and found it thoroughly enjoyable. In fact, James will probably be playing it while we livestream because he’s a loose cannon who doesn’t play by the rules.
Click here to check out their campaign, and their playable demo is available here!


Live Stream at 10PM GMT

We just figured we should title this one to make sure you didn’t miss it. Come join us at! James will be playing Death Inc and we’ll all be talking about / answering questions regarding WFTO (naturally).

  1. Kira the pure? I recently watched Death Note so it was a cool reference 🙂

    • Death Note is awesome, if you liked death note check out guilty crown its a cool anime.

  2. She hawt

  3. how come all the sound effects sounds the same? seriously bro

  4. So, let me get this straight.

    1) The first female unit you’ve unveiled … isn’t allowed to talk.

    2) If she doesn’t agree to shut up, she doesn’t get any power.

    3) If she speaks up afterwards, she doesn’t get to go to heaven.

    Yeah, I really can’t see too many women jumping at that chance.

    Savvy underlords are advised to stress in their recruiting briefs that unlike Good, Evil is an equal-opportunity employer.

    Also, you get free membership at the local torture cha — gym.

  5. loving the sounds effects!

  6. Planning to allowed tortured units to convert? I sure hope so!

    Reason being I have an idea I would love you guys to consider. Successful conversion to the Underlord causes her to act completely opposite. For example, she never shuts up and is always hypo-active, laughing, war crying and the lot. In addition one of her abilities may be swapped to siphoning as oppose to healing, be it friend or foe.

    What you think eh? eh? Guys?

  7. @ Chezza — suggestions are best left in the suggestions forum because it allows for meaningful discussion on the topic:

    @ Cruceus — I’ve only watched the first two episodes of Death Note… so I’m not sure I understand the reference!! I’m glad I wasn’t the first person to have this idea though.
    ( Why she’s named Kira: )



  8. I really like the idea of changing the colors and abilities of converted priestess.. however it would take more time for the developers probably to add this
    I took the liberty of chaning the colors of the priestess to the black and red looks kinda nice 😀

    • I like the look, but the gem on her head needs to change colour too, maybe the boots as well? she still looks to goodly for my liking…

  9. well about the reaper game, i really disliked the bright and happy colour over it. the concept is good though, the simplification and removal of the extreme micro is nice oppose to the general high micro intensity of normal rts games

    • ow for the priestess, it looks a little.. hmm ugly 😛
