Sproggiwood – A Roguelike of Some Cute Proportions

Back in the summer of 2012 a game was first conceived as micro-roguelike. That game was known as Sproggiwood and it was first brought into fruition back in 2012, it has been in development ever since. The game has since grown and the Sproggiwood that we all can now look forward to is looking to be a beast, albeit a very, very cute beast, but a beast nonetheless.sheep

Starting as a simple farmer from a peaceful island known as Clog, things begin to take a drastic turn once lured through a portal by a talking sheep. In this new world our hero finds themselves a prisoner to a forest spirit with a mischievous nature that enlists them into the aid of civilizing his realm. This spirit goes by the name of Sproggi and it is up to our hero to work with him to build the civilization, plunder through procedural dungeons, and decide whether or not you wish to crush or befriend a rival civilization that is on its rise to greatness.

Featuring a designable town mode with buildings, decorations, and monsters, all set within a world based on Finnish mythology. Dungeons filled with various items and equipment, and six fully unique classes to unlock and master: Simple farmer, brave warrior, merry archer, cunning thief, brainy wizard, and creepy vampire.


Sproggiwood is set for a release within the third-quarter of 2014 and will be available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and currently has a Steam Greenlight campaign in full swing. The game is being developed by indie developer Freehold Games, LLC, and more information can be found about them at their website, and be sure to check them out on Twitter.
