Sproggiwood roguelike in development from Freehold Games for PC, Mac and Linux

Freehold Games, developer of the cult hit Caves of Qud is proud to #unveil their next #game Sproggiwood. A story-driven micro-roguelike game conceived in the Summer of 2012 that marries the studios previous work with massive roguelike‘s and a gorgeous art style. Making the gameplay a bit more user-friendly, while it steeps the lot in Finnish mythology. And Sproggiwood is coming to PC / Mac / Linux, with a sheep. A talking sheep. Yes, seriously.

Vote for it on Steam Greenlight.


Bring civilization to Sproggiwood, a story-driven, turn-based roguelike set in a world of mischief and wonder. One moment, you’re a simple farmer from the peaceful island of Clog — the next, you’re lured through a mysterious portal by a talking sheep. Now you are the prisoner of Sproggi, a mischievous forest spirit who enlists your help civilizing his realm. Work with Sproggi to grow your civilization, plunder procedural dungeons, and unlock six unique classes. Each time you dive into a dungeon, level up a new character and combine skill powers to produce an utterly original adventure. But there’s a twist that even Sproggi does not know: a rival civilization is on the rise to greatness. Will you choose to befriend these curious mushroom people and stand together, or will you crush them and claim Sproggiwood for your own?

  • Brain-churning tactical combat vs. an assortment of monsters and traps
