Dwarf Lord update and high DPI display support in Sorcerer King: Rivals v2.3



The spider-riding Dwarf Lord gets an update in v2.3 for Sorcerer King: Rivals! He now has access to Alchemists and other special buildings that were locked to him before. If a short fellow wielding a battle-axe and riding a GIANT FROST SPIDER with a fierce army supported by alchemists knocking down your portcullis doesn’t freak you out and force you to surrender, I don’t know what will.

Oh, did we mention that we updated the front engine so that said Dwarf Lord and the rest of the game is now optimized for high DPI displays? Yeah, that’s a thing, too.

Go forth and conquer!

About This Game

Never the same game twice

You have risen to lead an up and coming civilization in magical land of Elemental. Your village lives in the shadow of one of the precious shards of magic. It also possesses something unique in all the world -- the Forge of the Overlord. This powerful artifact allows its user to craft magical items and equipment.

Armed with the Forge of the Overlord, your people look to you to challenge the malevolent Sorcerer King, a being who has devastated the land and filled it with ruins and minions.

Unknownst to him, you have learned the Spell of Ascension that will allow you to channel the magic of the shards and enable you to ascend to a being of nearly unlimited power who can set the world free (or destroy it).

But you are not alone. Other civilizations are rising while the Sorcerer King schemes in his distant fortress. They too have their own plans…
