“In a way, The Wratch’s Den made me care for the little orcs — though they were soon to become disposable mooks in service of the Wratch. What time I had with them made me smile. There was even an Orc school!”

“I feel this game raises the bar on indie arcade games.”

About This Game

A byte-sized Dungeon Keeping roguelike where you'll have to protect the Wratch from the heartless heroes come for easy prestige, and expand your lair until you find the three Orbs of Inifinite Power so that the Wratch can restore their Dominion.

Turn by turn, dig out gold, carry it back to the Wratch and buy new monsters, traps and technologies. As you keep digging, you will unlock unique rooms to place in your dungeon to shape your path to success! Upgrade your orcs and goblins in the school, smith them new weapons and armor at the forge, rip off heroes in the market, drown them in snakes at the snake pit, and much more! But beware of the waves of heroes who will come in your tunnels every year to try and dethrone the Wratch!

Runs usually last between 20 to 40 minutes and the game features 4 difficulty modes, plus an endless mode to try and expand your dungeon as much as you can before the heroes overwhelm you.
