Create a flourishing little mouse colony, by managing mouse behaviour and crafting all buildings. If you do a mice... err nice job, they will build you a monument.

Solidarity is key!

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

If you already downloaded the game, please check and make sure that you have version 0.6 which includes several bugfixes or download it below.


Controls: 

CLICK AND HOLD LEFT mouse button to drag advancements onto mice or earth-patches to create new buildings or upgrade your mice

Use your CURSOR (or your finger on android) TO NUDGE mice around or towards one another, so they can interact

ROTATE CAMERA WITH RIGHT mouse button or two finger touch

Press ESCAPE to quit the game

HOW TO PLAY:

  • Place Buildings on grass-less patches, by dragging them from the menu bar on the right onto your play-area. Start with the trees/wood.
  • Mice gather resources from structures you build and by interacting/bumping into each other
  • Gather the necessary resources to build more structures and upgrade your mice
  • You can change their role anytime aslong as you have apples and enough happiness/solidarity
  • Different mice collect different resources and behave differently, so choose wisely which roles you assign.

You need to assign different behaviours/skins to the mice (you find these in the right corner of the menu, just drag them onto  any mouse on the play-area)

The strong mouse with the blue shirt - collects building materials like wood, stone

The lover mouse with the heart - well lets say they sometimes let your population grow ;)

Normal mice - collect food, so be careful of how many mice you change to strong-mice or lovers

When mice bump into each other they interact and combine items. For example: two times wood makes fire, with fire you can build more houses, etc.

Just experiment and watch what the mice do ;)

Hello everyone hope everyone is well!

I have decided to try this game on my first impressions video! I had it in the eyesight to cover it for a while now. I hope you enjoy the video! I had a lot of fun and I really look forward to see what additions the game will have in the future. 

A few things I would love to see in the future ability to properly select and control the mice and put them onto different jobs. I would love to see more buildings and maybe a campaign mode too! Who knows!

Thank you for supporting this game!

Hi! Wow thank you for your feedback, for playing and making a video! We can't promise that there will be updates in the near future as we are actively working on DORFROMANTIK, but who knows ;)

Best wishes from the Team!

Hey ! That's great that you put your other game into the message I'll check that one too :p. 

Thank you for making a fun game. Hope everyone from your team is doing well and whether you update it or not wish you the best :)

Hi guys! :)
I really liked the game. It has a great scope and looks beautiful. It also looks pretty polished. And it is fun to watch the mice do their work. ^^

I had some struggles understanding the combining of items mechanic (without having it explained in the description). It was hard for me to try things out, because there was often no reaction when bumping together. (which seems to just be a bug) So I sometimes wanted to just have an item in my bar to use, but the mice kept it. And because he kept it and did not interact, he seemed to not do anything else anymore. 

I also did not have a good understanding of my interaction scope I guess. I wanted to interact more and quicker then I could, and that made it a bit frustrating some times. 

It sill was fun to play and caught my attention. :)


Was this inspired by Trimps? :D

Hey RoTak, I'm sorry I have never heard of that game! What is it about?

It's an idle game with similiar mechanics.

Edit: Sorry for being so long and just a heads up it's just some bugs I found and one suggesting. ^w^

I really like the art style and idea but there was multiple bugs I ran into that made the game inplayable. (Had it running in the background while typing and checked back and it's just really slow. That changed read till thee end) ;^;

 When I had a lover mouse she was EVIL because she mated with other mouses and I had more mouses but they were stuck in place and didn't move or talk to any other mice.

 Then if I just click on a building and didn't drag them on to a slot they would stick to my cursor and I couldn't play the game anymore then had to restart the game.

Another thing is that the mice can get stuck on some of the objects so, it might help if you could drag the mice.   .w.

And lastly one problem which isn't much of a bug but makes the game a bit more difficult is that the lumber mice and other sometimes just bump in to lots of objects that arn't what they use or just completly walk around it. 

And I found this funny but one time I saw a lumber mice just walk up to the pile of rocks and the walked away without doing anything like "Na fam." and I have a feeling of wow, ok (In a funny way) and You had ONE job >->

Update: The game just finally broke and the game is now on a loop...  ;^;

Btw still is that they're stuck just not moving and I assume your smart peeps so you know what I mean by stuck. Also btw when the lumber mice bump into the wood they just keep thier path.

And I feel bad for pointing out lots of bugs but I just want the game to grow! ^v^ And I still love the idea but it just needs more work till it because fully funcional. Best of luck!

Hey @Devaiantdemon thanks for the very detailed comment and bug-descriptions.

I already uploaded a new version (link in the description as normal uploads are blocked until the end of the jam). In v0.4 most of these problems are fixed, plus you can now nudge the mice around with your cursor in case on of them gets stuck or if you want to move mice together.


Hope you'll have fun with the updated version ;)
