    A Game of Dwarves



    Developer: Zeal Game Studios
    Published by: Paradox Interactive
    Platform: PC
    Genre: Strategy, Management, Cave building
    Release Date: October 23, 2012
    Price: €9.99/$9.99

    A dwarven prince on a quest to reclaim his people’s old country takes the player on a journey through a continent, uncovering the buried mysteries of the Great War. With a combination of strategy and management, the player rules their settlements of dwarves, having them explore the earth and utilize its resources.



    The gameplay consists of ordering the inhabitants of a dwarven settlement to dig, build and conduct research in order to strengthen the clan, whilst defending themselves from the terrible beasts from the depths into which they delve. The game generates a unique world each time a new level starts, making sure that the player needs to dynamically adapt their strategies and tactics during a session.


    As the player advances, the dwarves will level up and gain new skills, progressing from weak dwarflings 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…

    Features

    * Explore – The randomly generated maps will always keep the content fresh and increase the sense of exploration when digging through the earth.
    * Build – The things that the player can build in-game are not only practical, but their designs are varied and pretty too! This allows the player to build the objects they personally think look great, while still gaining progress. Home is where the art is.
    * Command – With the order system the player can easily control oodles of dwarves simultaneously without the need for extensive micro management.

    It's not an RTS. Maybe this will show you a bit more of the gameplay: http://duelanalogs.com/news/2012/10/...eo-series.html

    Actually it's more like a graphical Dwarf Fortress.

    No

    Payday is Friday, though I doubt I'll be getting it then. After bills and lawyer fees, I'm probably broke.

    I'm super close to being caught up with everything and turning shit around though. So "someday" MIGHT mean this year?

    I want this, but I'm terrified it won't live up to the expectations that dungeon keeper have given me, for this genre.

    Yeah, going into this game expecting Dungeon Keeper or Dwarf Fortress is a bad idea. I can honestly say that you will be disappointed. This is what happened with many reviewers.

    If you want a "cute" game with the possibility to build intricate dungeon constellations without too many tactical challenges, then you come to the right place. A lot of cosmetic stuff is added all the time, both by free DLC's as well as paid ones in the in-game shop.

    But to put it short. The main purpose of the game is to build and decorate your dwarven settlement. Minecraft meets the Sims might be a way of describing it. I suggest you check out some lets plays and such first so you know what you are getting. Would hate to see you disappointed
