Team17 and Warpzone Studios have today announced that dwarven mining colony simulator, Hammerting, will launch into Steam Early Access on 27th October. Offering a unique blend of mechanics that allows players to manage their very own colony of dwarves, including crafting, base building, and exploration, players will need to strategically assign tasks to their clan of colourful dwarves as they work to assist in the Overworld’s fight against evil. A demo is currently available, giving players an hour’s access to the mines underneath the perilous Mountains of Mara.
Take a break from the mines and check out the new trailer:
