UnReal World has been Greenlit
Ladies and gentlemen, we have been greenlit. Thanks to everyone who voted, supported and promoted the game during the campaign.

Top colors of the season in Finland and UnReal World are now white and green.

Somewhere in eastern Finland, 7-Jan-2014 - bowing in blizzard to thank everyone involved in getting UnReal World Greenlit.

Preparations for Steam release will take quite a bit of time, but stay patient and follow us and you will be kept updated. Meanwhile, pay a visit at UnReal World website[] to download the game and get into far north right away.

Version 3.20 released - resizable game window, ever-expanding game content
UnReal World version 3.20 is now released

Version 3.20 features migration to SDL 2 with freely resizable game window, true crop cycle and stocking of farm product for villages, improved village resources, armour glossary overhaul, seals, new birds with new behaviour, overhauled animal populations -- and a hoard of other additions and bug fixes.

If tiny game window on big screen turned you away from UnReal World earlier, now it's time to grab the game and go explore the vast world in freely resizable fashion.

Version 3.20 can be downloaded at UnReal World website[].

The major game content additions in version 3.20 are:

* True crop cycle for villages - harvesting, stocking and sowing

Villagers now properly harvest their fields, stock the products and sow the fields again in the spring. In addition to all kinds of farm products you can now also obtain seeds from the villages. Availability of farm products and seeds in villages is naturally most abundant in autumn, reserves will be consumed during the winter, and there's usually only little left in the spring.

Glimpse at autumn harvest of Sartolais Village. Pod type plants are stored in bags, root vegetables stocked on their own and seeds stored in boxes and baskets.

* Armour glossary overhaul

Anachronistic have been armours removed, a dozen of new armours and clothes added, new sprites added, and armour availability and usage adjusted. There's also a completely new armour material, lamellar, which is an eastern armour type used by Njerpezit. Foreign traders and Njerpez now have a distinctive cultural difference between armours they favour and wear.

Metal armours are very rare, and even the foreign warriors need to rely mostly on fur and leather for protection. Helms, cowls and smaller metal armours for spot procetion are now far more common than valuable body armours such as hauberks.

* Seals

There are two types os seals, the ringed seal and the grey seal. Both live in the sea and can be found on coastal regions of UnReal World. Seals are interesting new creatures and fun to even spot while rowing on the sea - not to mention trying to hunt them. Seals spend most of their days in the water but do regularly come ashore to rest and pass time. During open water season they rest on rocky surfaces of the utmost skerries and islets of the sea. In the winter they do live near the edge of the ice, spending the lazy hours on the ice.

During open water season the seals tend to rest on rocky surfaces of the utmost skerries and islets of the sea.

* Improved village resources

You can now find wood, lumber, ordinary clothes and common tools and equipment and now found in villages. Availability of these items is naturally culturally dependant.

Driikiläiset are one of the wealthiest cultures, but they also need things like pots and bowls, ropes and shoes - and boards and logs:

* New birds with new behaviour

Ravens, eagle owls, goshawks and more new birds have been added. The new birds of prey do effectively decrease populations of hares, squirrels and other birds. Often only a feather beside the kill will reveal their presence - unless you hear them call. Version 3.20 also features variety of new bird audio and you can actually hear ravens, goshawks, swans, kuikkas, hazel grouses or eagle owls calling.
All the ground nesting birds do lay eggs. Aquatic birds lay eggs on islets and skerries, or nearby the shore among vegetation, and finding their eggs is relatively doable if you have patience. Eggs of the forest birds are much harder to find.

Swans prefer to nest in hard to find and difficult to reach locations, such as islets and skerries.

* Overhauled animal populations

Creation of animal populations has been thoroughly checked, adjusted and balanced. These adjustments concern not only the commonness and relative number of animals, but also their natural habitats. Frequency of big game remains quite the same as it was, and most notable changes are seen in populations of small animals and birds. In general you can now expect more varied and greater number of wildlife to exist in the world, but natural habitat of animals has a much greater role than before. You can't expect to find any forest animals in any type of forest.

...and the list goes on with a hoard of minor additions and bug fixes.

Enjoy the new version – and happy winter solstice to all of you!
According to meteorological statistics there were full 16 minutes of sunny weather at my region of Finland during the whole November. The winter is still coming, but the days are slowly letting longer.

You can download version 3.20 at UnReal World website[].

Into the Far North we shall take you... far as we can by the means of computer role-playing.

UnReal World is a unique low-fantasy roguelike game taking place in the Far North long, long ago.
It's a combination of roleplaying game and a survival simulation.

As a member of one of the nine different cultures you'll enter a detailed and enchanting iron-age game world in which northern folklore, knowledge and way of life play an important part. The world of the game is highly realistic, rich with historical atmosphere and emphasized on survival in the harsh ancient wilderness.

A wide world with vast forests, mires and mountains to roam and watercourses to row is randomly and procedurally generated - and you can live off the land and explore it on very detailed level. Track animals, set traps, hunt with bows and spears, tan hides, go fishing, pick berries, cook food, sleep in a temporary shelter or build a log cottage, trade with the villagers, craft items, interact with cultures near and far, etc. The game is completely open-ended and you decide whether you wish to lead a life of a fisherman, a hermit searching for the peace, a brave adventurer, a rough hunter, a trapper or a tradesman.

Throughout the years, UnReal World has been praised for its depth, realism, atmosphere and immersion.

It's free to play. Current version 3.19 (stable).


The very first version of UnReal World was released in 1992. The game was a lot different back then, but still featured many ideas and style of computer role-playing we're working on now. Over the past 22 years we've seen dozens of stable UrW releases, and ever since 1992 this game of "fenno-ugrian fantasy" has been in constant development -- and still there is no end in sight to perfecting the game.
