Dwelvers is a real time strategy game inspired by the old time classics Dungeon Keeper and Settlers. The player needs to guide their minions in digging out paths and rooms, and claiming them for themselves, growing their dungeon. The game will be based on creating your minions and keeping them pleased in various ways. Then you will lead them into battle to defeat your enemy and claim victory! The most challenging part for the player will be creating advanced production chains so as to have enough food to keep their creatures well fed, enough weapons and armour to outfit their army as a force to be reckoned with, and of course enough beer to keep them satisfied with you as their master. A drunk minion is a happy minion! The theme of the game will have a lot of dark humour, and each creature will have its own personality, demands and fighting style; forcing the player to handle all the creatures in different ways in order to max out their potential.

Dwelvers Alpha Demo 0.9e-4


Trailer video


Dwelvers alpha v0.9d has now been released and are available for download at the Dwelvers Website and on Steam.

In this version we have backtracked a little bit and reinstated the auto claiming system, but with some changed of course Smile We also want to introduce cave-ins, this feature adds a cave in risk when digging straight down and will therefore will force the player to dig outwards instead of digging straight down after minerals. A lot of other features, improvements and creatures has also been introduced with this version, for example, it now possible to place a ladder and dig underneath it with it being destroyed. This makes the excavation a lot smoother without having to rebuild ladders all the time.

I also want to add that the possession spell has been upgraded. You can now dig, attack and throw rocks at the enemy when you have possessed a creature.

To make this release extra special we have a special one week offer on Steam and on Dwelvers Website. Buy now and get a 30% discount Big Grin

The game is very demanding at the moment as it still is in alpha and haven't been optimised, I figure the loading time comes after the "Present screen"? If that is the case it is the game level that is generating, and it isn't the most optimised atm. It will be better in future versions. My recommendation is to just wait it out, the level should finish loading at some point. But I am pretty confident that you will experience a laggy gameplay because the long loading time may suggest that the game is to demanding for your laptop.

Sorry for this, I am working on it and it will get better in the future :)

It would be great if it could run on OpenGL. Some people don't have Windows Vista/7/8 and I don't know of anything that can be made on D3D and can't be made on OGL. Such sad, much can't run, but still Wow!

** I'm almost sure I answered you.. I must have forgot to press save :/ **

Thanks for the Wow :)
It a mistake I made from the beginning that I started with Direct3D, I will probably port the game to OpenGL in the future, but right now I have way too much on my plate..

I hope you understand :)

Alright! I have voted!!! In exchange for this I fully expect to be compensated by having the ability to produce multiple versions/iterations of the Dark Mistress troop type.
Seriously though - two things that I always wished DK2 could improve on:
1) Not being able to attack the human settlements that kept sending the heroes to kick over my sandcastles. Just did not seem fair that I couldn't.
2)There being only one type of evil female troop type. I mean, c'mon. Not only is this just plain sexist, but the evil chick is the staple of all evil-doing organizations, and you just can't have too many.
Anyways, thank you for answering a wish from over a decade ago.

Thanks for the vote :)

Nr 1: Is being worked on and will probably be introduced in the 0.7 or 0.8 version.

Nr 2: I see your point, but I could turn it around and say that the females are dominating the guys. If I had a guy that were the Dark Mother and all other females, then it would be sexist as well. The only reason I choose to label her as the "Dark Mother" is because she giving offspring. But yeah, in the future we will probably have more variation between the genders :)

What is this error message?

Ahh, I really need to change that error message.. It is triggered when the game can't create any direct 3D device. It needs Windows Vista SP2+ and Direct3D 10 to be able to run.

Sorry for the extremely late reply, I don't get any announcement when people post here.
If you'd like you could report your issue at our forum Forum.dungeondwellers.net so that we could get to the bottom of the problem and solve it.
