A sandbox village management game in the vein of Dwarf Fortress, but instead of dwarves you have gnomes you need to care for.


Gnomoria has several aspects of strategy. For example, you need to feed your gnomes by utilizing agriculture, give them drinks through a well or a brewery, fend off creatures and build a prosperous kingdom for them. There's also crafting, trap-making, mining for precious ores underground among other things.

The gnomes have different professions, depending on what you need them to do. This can be changed at any time during the game, but when you do the gnomes take a quick nap and cancels their current task. By building bedrooms for them, the need for naps is reduced and work becomes more efficient.

The game has been released to 1.0 but has been abandoned by the developer. It is mostly complete but has some game breaking bugs left in it.
