A Game of Dwarves

Third party DRM: Steam

This game requires a free Steam account to play.

Description

A Dwarven Prince on a quest to reclaim his people’s stolen land will take you on a great journey. Explore a continent filled with buried treasures and unearth mysteries that have laid hidden since the Great War. Take charge of your Dwarven settlement while mining, exploring and utilizing your resources with a combination of strategy and management.

Order the inhabitants of a Dwarven settlement to dig, build and conduct research in order to strengthen the clan. Be careful though because you must defend your Dwarves from the terrible beasts that lie in the depths. A unique world is generated each time a new level starts, so you will need to dynamically adapt your strategies and tactics during each session.

As you advance, the Dwarves will level up and gain new skills; progressing from weak dwarvlings to near immortal warriors or master craftsmen. There are also rare resources to be found deeper in the earth that grant access to better buildings and equipment. However, the deeper you dig the more dangerous foes you might unleash…


Key Features:

  • Explore:

    The randomly generated maps offer replayability while also providing a sense of exploration

  • Build:

    Customize your settlement with not only practical constructions, but beautiful ones too! Build objects you think look great, while still gaining progress. Home is where the art is.

  • Command:

    With an intuitive order system the player can easily control oodles of dwarves simultaneously without the need for extensive micro management

  • A 13 level, story driven campaign

  • Custom game mode:

    Create a world without enemies so you can build uninterrupted or spawn lots of them to increase the challenge

Fun little DK lookalike

Its a neat little casual game. I find that i miss being able to structure the dungeons better and the building quickly becomes a digging for resources where ever they are. Storywise it dosnt really have that much to offer. Game mechanics are decent. You'll play this game for a while and then move on. If you're looking for a casual fun game to spend some hours playing you've come to the right place. Good fun for your buck.

A lot of potential.

A game of dwarves is a charming game that is filled with many laughs and enjoyable scenes. The game features enough levels to keep you playing for hours and then a sandbox mode for those looking for more. Despite this however, the game is lacking in gameplay. Although there is plenty of content, most of the levels play out generally the same and require you to spend much of your time simply waiting for more research and your dwarves to level up. The levels aren't challenging, but simply time consuming. decorating your dwarven settlement to make it look pretty can be enjoyable, but the benefit for it is next to nothing. I enjoyed the game, but feel it had too many levels for how much actual gameplay there is in those levels.

This game is really great for its price and is basically a updated version of Dwarfs Fortress. Its really easy to get into and is very casual. The game also requires an activation for it on steam and the total download is about 1.4 GB/s. The game is really enjoyable and I can casually play it while doing other things at the same time. Also if you buy it now there's additional free content in the in-game shop which is pretty nice. The art style is interesting and the story is very humorous. This game is definatly worth the 10$ and i love it. There were some minor AI issues but its easy to overcome them and for such a cheap game its not that big of a deal. Definatly get this game if you're into games such as minecraft and strategy/management games.

It is similiar to Dungeon Keeper, but don't expect DK!

I bought it one late night and suddenly it was noon... what happened? I got addicted to this game! It has simple but yet good looking graphics. Its gameplay is easy to understand and is fun. Unlike DK, where you could only dig in one level, you are able to dig deeper into the ground more similiar to Dwarf Fortress. There are a lot of different rooms to be built and units to try out. So it never gets boring. The huge issue I have with the title is, that it is flooded with DLCs. Some DLCs are purchasable in online stores like GMG or Steam, but most of them are only available via their ingame store. Personally I'd say make your mind up if it is not against your principles. If not you got yourself a fun addictive game!

When reading comments about this game keep in mind, that most people expected a Dungeon Keeper or a Dwarf Fortress and are made that it isn't. So do not have false expectation and enjoy this game for what it is. ;)
