Genre: Indie, Strategy, Early Access
Tired of invading dungeons? It's time you build your own! Do you feel you are in a slump? Monotonously disemboweling evil guys in endless quests for gold and a slightly better pair of boots? You are starting to wonder... are heroics really your calling? Welcome to the War for the Overworld!
War for the Overworld is a Dungeon Management Game that employs your favourite aspects of the RTS and God Game genres. You play an all-powerful, malevolent Underlord, long banished to the Aether. With unrivaled dark power and an insatiable desire for bloody conquest, you will arise once more, and reclaim your realm!
In your absence, the Underworld lost its way. It became feeble and afraid of the Empire of the Overworld, which grew strong and boldly comfortable in its quiet retirement from evil-slaying. Carve out your dungeon from the soil and stones of the Underworld, and build dozens of unique rooms to attract a myriad of creatures to your halls to work and fight for you.
In addition to your faithful followers, you have destructive spells and powerful rituals to cast upon any unsuspecting goodly Hero (or rival Underlord) who dares to breach your unhallowed halls. With your unmatched dark powers and mighty army of bloodthirsty minions, you are ready for your War for the Overworld!

Gameplay & Balance Changes
Unit spawning now takes into account the current army composition of the player and will now spawn
We're continuning to tune the Ember Demon to focus on two specific roles: Small skirmishes and destroying defences. The single target damage has been heavily increased and the AoE burst damage is now all but gone. Across the board they now have less damage overall, but we've doubled their bonus damage to defences to compensate. Finally, we've added a knockback to Ember Spirit to prevent an entire army being killed after defeating a few Ember Demons.

Basic attack: Damage increased to 75 (from 30)
Basic attack: Cooldown reduced to 2.5s (from 3s)
Flare: Damage reduced to 0 (from 50)
