Stone Shire Description



Stone Shire is an adventure block game made exclusively for Nintendo Wii U™, the first of its kind for the platform. Similar to the popular block game Minecraft, you can mine blocks using tools and and use them to either craft new blocks or to build an elaborate structure. The world is always randomly generated whenever you start a new game, so you will always have a fresh experience with each playthrough. There is no goal in Stone Shire. You choose your own goals and build your own world, exploring around as you see fit.

Using the Wii U™ GamePad, you can manage your inventory and craft items with one touch, making swapping around items and equipping easy and intuitive. By placing items into one of the two equip hotbars, you can switch between items quickly in either your left or right hand using the L or R Buttons respectively.


Explore different map types, each offering different worlds and block types for you to harvest. If you enjoy lush green trees and expansive grass, the grasslands are just the place for you. Or maybe you enjoy a snowy climate. Then the tundra will be the right map for you, dressed in pine trees and snow. If you do not mind a little heat, you can instead take a walk through a desert populated by sand and cacti. As stated, you make your own adventures.

stone-shire-dwarf-grasslandStone Shire is a game that will constantly be updated on the  Nintendo Wii U. These patches will come free, so you do not have to worry about paying extra for upcoming content. There may be DLC in the future, but these will be more significant cosmetic changes, such as different texture packs to choose from. We want to mold Stone Shire into an adventure game that will have lots of content and features, and thus we will always be adding new patches throughout its lifetime to make the game more immersive and fun for the player. For example, you can only play as the dwarf for now, but in the future, we will add new races, each with their own little quirks. The dwarf is specialized in mining, while an elf will be more suited for hunting and exploring across the land. Yes, combat, animals, and monsters will become a thing in future patches.

Multiplayer, both local and online, are another feature that will soon be coming. Building and exploring by yourself is okay. Doing this with a group of friends is better, however. And we want to make that a reality on the Wii U console. So expect features like these and more in the coming months after Stone Shire’s release.
