What is Lord of Dwarves? (short version)
Lord of Dwarves is a resource gathering, dwarf management, crafting game, with a 3D voxel world where you build a castle and test how it stands up against hordes of invading monsters.
What is Lord of Dwarves? (long version)
In Lord of Dwarves you manage a group of Dwarves who live in a completely constructible/destructible 3D 'block' world. You decide what tasks they should spend their time on. Including mining, farming, construction, weapon/armor smithing and more.
The game is highly customizable and supports multiple play modes including a Campaign, Sandbox, & Scenario mode.
You can customize a high action world where invaders constantly test your defenses. Create walls for defense and watch invading forces climb them with ladders or break through them with sappers. Improve on those defenses against ever more powerful armies. Dig deep into the earth to uncover rare and powerful metals with which you can craft the most powerful arms and armor for your soldiers.
Or create a sandbox style game where enemies are sparse and invaders rare. Concentrate on gathering resources to create ever grander structures. Become the master of your world and rule over a well oiled infrastructure.
What features does Lord of Dwarves include?
I heard you're only using Open Source Software to develop this game. Is that true?
Yes! Free software has come a long way. The tools I use to write code, create 3D models, build textures, etc. are all open source and totally free. (Don't worry, Lord of Dwarves will still run on Windows).
Who is making this game?
Just me, Nick Matyas. It started out as a hobby and soon became much more.
Do you do this full time?
No, I actually have a day job. I work full time as a software engineer on a military tactical simulation software. It's pretty boss!
What is the release date?
Lord of dwarves is still in pre-Alpha development. But trust me, I can't wait to play it too. More information will be posted as soon as it's known.
