All the settlers in your towns have jobs. A job is like a class in a role playing game. Each job has a specific role like hauling materials, building, crafting, and fighting. As your little guys work at a job they will gain experience and levels. Some jobs, when they meet certain prerequisites, can upgrade into entirely new jobs with new capabilities
You are not alone in the world of Stonehearth. The world will be populated with factions of friend and foe alike. Defend your town from enemies, and build alliances with neighboring clans.
Monsters: Entlings, Stone Golems, Giant Zombies, Varanus, Necromancer
Worlds in Stonehearth are randomly generated. The fully-featured world will support forests, rivers, lakes, and lots of different biomes.
Stonehearth will observe your in-game behavior and respond accordingly. Building up a stockpile of wealth will attract raiders, and how you deal with them will trigger different outcomes. The goal is to add an RPG-like story element to traditional simulation games.
You will be able to play Stonehearth with your friends, either cooperatively within the same city, or independently building your own cities within the same game.
