About War for the Overworld - Ultimate Edition

About this game

Your Steam key for War for the Overworld - Ultimate Edition includes the War for the Overworld base game, Heart of Gold expansion, My Pet Dungeon expansion, The Under Games expansion and Underlord Edition extras (dungeon theme, soundtrack, lore books).

Tired of invading dungeons? It's time you built your own!

Do you feel you’re in a slump, monotonously disembowelling evil guys in endless quests for gold and a slightly better pair of boots? Are you starting to wonder if heroics really are your calling? Then welcome to the War for the Overworld!

Dungeon Management Reincarnated
Excavate and build your dungeon beneath the overworld, in the modern dungeon management game that’s most faithful to the genre’s original DNA. Keep your dungeons, slap your minions, and forge underground fortresses filled with all the dastardly rooms, traps and heinous minions you desire. Do it all under the mentorship of the original and best voice of evil: Richard Ridings!

Wield the Arsenal of Evil
Evil loves options, and within the Veins of Evil there are plenty to go around! Choose from over sixty rooms, spells, potions, rituals, defences and constructs as you progress through the game. Deploy your fiendish tools against the goodly heroes of the overworld, and teach them the price of trespass.

Conquer a Myriad of Modes
With six game modes to choose from you can conquer your enemies in your own unique way. Choose from Campaign, Skirmish, Scenarios, Multiplayer, Survival, and the My Pet Dungeon expansion (free 2-level demo included in the base game), and discover what it truly means to be the bad guy.

Customise, Create, and Share with Your... Enemies
Build your own maps with the intuitive and powerful Map Editor, then share them on the Steam Workshop to join the ranks of nearly 3000 custom maps already created! Meddle further, and change the very rules themselves to your liking with dozens of mutators. Being evil has never been so creative!

Made by Cultists (Fanatics), for Cultists (Fanatics)
War for the Overworld is developed by an independent team of fanatical developers, each with a true love of the dungeon management genre. We have continued to update the game since launch, with countless patches, balancing, polish, and many new features - plus there’s more on the way! Our community has been vital to our success, so please join us, and let your voice be heard!

Ultimate Edition

If you desire the absolute incarnation of evil, then look no further than the Ultimate Edition, which features: base game, Heart of Gold expansion, My Pet Dungeon expansion, The Under Games expansion, Underlord Edition extras (dungeon theme, soundtrack, lore books).

Heart of Gold:
Heart of Gold is the first narrative expansion to War for the Overworld, which puts you in the role of the gold-hungry Underlord Kasita. Under the mentorship of the despicably devious Mendechaus (voiced by Richard Ridings), you’ll sate your thirst for wealth and power in the golden dukedom of Phaestus.

My Pet Dungeon:
My Pet Dungeon is the chilled-out management experience in War for the Overworld - an eight-level campaign voiced by Richard Ridings and focused on exploration and discovery, where the only restriction is your own devilish fancy.

The Under Games:
The Under Games is a seven-level campaign tournament set across a variety of game modes. Choose from new Underlords with unique playstyles, then pit them against the rest in a knockout-style competition organised by the bloodthirsty Mendechaus (Richard Ridings). Can you win The Under Games and lead the charge into the War for the Overworld?

Great game. Maybe my group of gaming friends isn't old enough to have ever played Dungeon Keeper. IDK, I gifted a key to 5 friends and none of them have ever played with me...

Singleplay is good but multiplayer is bad. You have to open ports and still it don't work.

It's a essentially a base builder army building game set underground. I enjoyed the refreshing new feel and type of game with older yet good graphics. 8/10 would recommend.

Look, I'm a simple guy. You give me a game that involves dungeon building, I'll probably pick it up. If you like games like Dungeon Keeper, here ya go.

Absolutely amazing game, a true successor to the good old Dungeon Keeper, has a similar charm and I didn't encounter anything I didn't like in it, so for the fans of the genre I recommend it wholeheartedly! For the new players out there, check some gameplay videos and other reviews to see if it's you type of game.

War for the Overworld - Ultimate Edition Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
A nostalgic dungeon builder/manager sim, War for the Overworld is an indie real-time strategy game with a twist - you are an Underlord. The perfect game for those who are sick of playing hero, War for the Overworld is the perfect co-op experience.
