The engine used to build this game was a once-off creation, designed explicitly to run this particular title. This is not a real game engine, this is a GENERIC category.

A game run on an engine built for a few games (a game series, etc.), but not being clearly known or featured, should be assigned to Unknown engine.

About Dwell with 2 comments by Jungletoe on Sep 21st, 2014

We've been hard at work for the past year trying to tie up loose ends. We decided it was best to not release any big updates for a while so that we wouldn't attract a crowd.  A year later, that update has finally come. Welcome to the new game, Dwellers!

We needed to get some more professional graphics completed to make the game high tier. We brought numerous artists onto our team but only one fit the bill completely, Pirate.

…and even more polish

Emotes! They’re tied to F1-F12. We carefully designed each emote to be extremely accessible so that people can communicate their intentions immediately. This breaks language barriers and creates a culture of communication beyond text!

More polish!

Using developer skills to plow down a hill

Gates anyone?


A few new mechanics have been introduced. Dungeons now lay in the depths of the caverns and can only be found by exploring for portals in the overworld. Here are some of our finds...

Iceberg dungeon!

Yet another cold dungeon… snow themed!


The interface was updated to be easier to control and handle. It's been consolidated and redone multipletimes so I hope you're happy with the result we produced :) 

It now has a special twist. Add runes to your recipes to boost stats, results, and gains. Runes can be found or crafted and are a hot commodity for trading between villages!

We added a new biome to the worldgen, deserts. We've also optimized the continent generating algorithm to maximize its size while keeping the explorations of oceans unique! With that said, we've also added icebergs...

Cleaned up deserts a tad and fixed some underworld glitches

We've added lots more, but you'll have to check my blog and twitter to see it all! You can also sign up on our brand new website here!

Because a lot of these are built specifically to create the game. They have no names as they are not commercial.
