Manchester based Rocket Jump Technologies ‘King under the Mountain’ is a quirky settlement-building strategy and management game set in a rich fantasy world. Players can build and manage their settlement as well as indulge in turn based combat and asynchronous multiplayer, all within a procedurally-generated world.
We got our hands on ‘King under the Mountain’ earlier this years at EGX Rezzed 2017. The game looked and felt promising, its quirky art style made sending the odd looking towns folk to mine some rock, quite satisfying. The bold colours of the surroundings (tree’s especially) help to add a feeling of joy to the game, as your townsfolk scurry away like ants to do your bidding. Despite still being its its early stages of development, the build showed great promise, attracting a lot of attention from the public.
Despite the Kickstarter campaign being cancelled in April, the project is back on track and is due to launch a second campaign in the near future, so watch this space, the project is well worth a pledge!
