A cross between creativity, horror, and adventure, Dwell aims to be an ORPG like no other. Settle, create a village, and defend your friends from the horrible creatures who lurk in the forests. You can change the landscape, farm, or hunt in order to survive the conditions-- it's all up to you.

All the progress for the past 2 months! New website and forums as well!

This new update is something special. We've reinvented the game in numerous ways, from the name to the art style. The new name is Dwell. We had to change our name due to availability (there are tons of games with Colonies in their name, yet few with Dwell) and recognition potential.

Looks pretty nice :)
Any way to try a version on Linux?

Tried to get some info from your website, but it seems down?

Yeah, it will be back up in 1 minute (we're transitioning hosts). There is currently not a way to test besides applying for a tester's account. A Linux build will be available eventually, but not at the moment (however, it works fine on Wine as a temporary solution).
