War for the Overworld Celebrates Second Anniversary With New Update

The base game is discounted 75% in today’s Steam Daily Deal.

War for the Overworld is a dungeon management game with “a dark sense of humor” that has today released an all-new game mode with My Pet Dungeon.

This update is focused mainly on building and exploration. It brings a new eight-mission sandbox campaign where each level encourages you to build and discover to your heart’s content, all at a more relaxed pace than other modes.

Players score points through dungeon building, enemy slaying, and completing bonus objectives to progress to the next level. Enable God Mode, switch on wave spawning and drop in a few unsuspecting heroes and watch the chaos grow!

Here is a full list of what you can expect in the newest update:

  • Eight All-New Levels – Focused on exploration, discovery and dungeon building.
  • Unique Scoring System – Earn points by building the greatest dungeon in the Underworld; earn enough to unlock the next level.
  • Bonus Objectives – Complete special objectives to earn extra points, such as raising your minions’ Levels or slaying dozens of heroes – all at your own pace.
  • Room Unlock System – Rooms unlock over time, freeing your research up to focus on other Aspects.
  • The Toybox – A special room unique to My Pet Dungeon, allowing you to pick up and drop enemy units into your dungeon as though they were mere toys.
  • Wave Spawning – Spawn waves of enemy units to put your dungeon through its paces through new controls.
  • Three Unlockable Themes – Unlock the long-awaited Empire Dungeon Themes, newly refined to work as playable themes.
  • Winter Wonderland – Discover a new snowy terrain theme as your minions crunch through frozen underground caverns.
  • God Mode – Realize your omnipotence with the power to shape the very land, spawn in units and much more – all in real time.
