About the Game

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

I so badly wanted to give this game a good review...

Here is why I like it. The game is extremely slow paced with only as much challenge as you take on. It is great fun digging out your dwarven stronghold. I have spent hours upon hours designing awesome underground towns for my little buddies to live in. I bought the game on a steam sale and I do feel that it was a value for the price.

Here's the bad... Once you've played one level you've pretty much played them all which lends the game to tedium. And it's not really much of a game. It's more of a Dwarven Stronghold Designer. There is no challenge, random events or enemies that attack your dwarves without you digging them out. Even though I bought about half of them (I really wanted to support the game), but I hate DLC in a game like this. Especially in AGoD, the DLC (maybe except for the Pets add on) came off as a desperate cash grab. There is no reason why these items were not included in the core game. Especially considering there are tons of reports of game/achievement breaking bugs in the game. There is also an overworld to the maps that apparently goes completely unused.

The game does not feel finished. It is painful how much potential is here. It is a genuine crime that the money wasn't there for the game's full development.

Basically an abandoned early-access game, A Game of Dwarves had a lot of potential, but is left poorly optimized and riddled with bugs. Seemingly inspired by the much better "Dwarf Fortress", A Game of Dwarves sought to improve upon it with better graphics, only to fall short in every other area. It can be fun to build in, or stripmine, as suits your moods, but there's no strategic depth and any of the levels can be beaten almost blindfolded (which is how your dwarves behave half the time). Overall, it can be fun to waste some time in, but I can't recommend you purchase it.

At first quite nice. Digging, gathering resources, creating home for little creatures. But after some time the game gets really boring. And is full of annoying bugs or weird "features". Yes, really weird. For example you can build some furniture like beds or chairs. But dwarves don't use them (at last in the way you can observe). What is more annoying the cannot pass through items like chairs or plants. So it's easy to block their way. Just after a short time it's quite easy to notice a lot of bugs.

The game has some potential but seems to be unfinished or even abandoned.

As much potential as this game had, it's sad to see it never actually befoming a fun game.
The digging is fun, and there's good bits of crafting and decorating and other things that are fun.
But the engine the devs used, killed any modding community or content sharing.

That and the tedium of the 'story' missions ie 'where can i dig to get to the sparkly square and tell my warriors to go' sadly remove all the acutal management and tactical parts of the game.

I wish this had gotten a sequel made in a more flexible engine that allowed for actual AI.

Skip it.

Not like dwarf fortress, not like dungeon keeper, and infested with micro-transactions.
