Hey everyone. RimWorld turned ten years old on November 4, 2023, and it's just in time for the 2023 Steam Awards. You can nominate RimWorld under the "Labor of Love" category!

It's been ten years of content from the Kickstarter, alpha, beta, and Steam greenlight days, plus game updates, lore, fanart, videos, streams, memes, Royalty, Ideology, Biotech, Steam Deck, console release, and much more I didn't cover. We're really proud of RimWorld and our community. Here's to more RimWorld!

The Steam Autumn Sale just started as well, and we're running discounts on ... Read more

Some design references I did for the vanilla mechs and the diabolus.

For the pikeman, I heavily referenced the version drawn by u/epebe_ since I am a huge fan of how he designed it (and all of his concept art). I wish I could have seen him do all the other mechs...

For the centipede, I referenced a really cool design idea from a post by u/Maelorian where they mounted the cannon to the top of the mech.

And many thanks to the friend who really wanted to see how I would design the diabolus!

Hope you guys enjoy!

These are great! Very close to how I'd imagine them.

That's awesome - I was never sure if anyone really played it! Man that was a long time ago.

There actually was no soundtrack back then! It was about May-June 2013, months before I started working with Alistair Lindsay.

My friend who played wasn't falling asleep though; the 3 of us who were watching did.

Well, I managed to keep a basil plant alive for like 6 months. That's not bad, right?

It was faster than Illustrator for the really simple stuff I needed, and it made it easy to pixel-align things nicely. With graphics that small (and a willingness to make them somewhat janky), the power and precision of Illustrator was unnecessary.

Also, I don't know how to use Illustrator.

Spring is here, so we’re springing into action with a (small) update of fixes for RimWorld and its expansions.

The changelog is below, but here are the highlights! We fixed an issue where captured prisoners were escaping from your caravans and another issue where siblings became unrelated to each other if their parents were removed from the game.

If you like following these updates, you’re welcome to join us and even test new builds over at the Official RimWorld Development Discord[discord.gg]!

Enjoy! - Tia
