Lord of Dwarves places you in control of a band of dwarves in a fully reshape-able 3D voxel world. Assign tasks to the dwarves to gather resources, craft items, weapons, & armor, and build great monuments or fortifications. Protect your dwarves against hoards of invading monsters, or concentrate on gathering and construction in a more sandbox style game.

Some of the features included in Lord of Dwarves

  • Resource collection and crafting
  • Totally constructable/destructible 3D world allows for user defined building
  • Test your defenses against hoards of invading monsters
  • Play modes include campaign, sandbox, and scenario
  • Manage food/sleep/jobs to create a well oiled industry
  • Control a band of 100+ dwarves

The last Alpha release of Lord of Dwarves was very playable and most of the game features are already in the game. So recently I've been working on the "fun-feel" of the game. Over the last four months I've add a ton of changes to improve the pace of the game.

Previously your dwarves could not work fast enough to keep up with a fun game pace. Check out this video to see some of the ways I've changed the game to make the game play more fun and remove issues that used to bog the player down.

This game is just too much like Dwarf Fortress.. pls guys, before following a indie early-access game which will be released in half a year, just play a 100x times more complex and awesome game, made by a Before-Engineer which dedicated his life to his game. Dwarf Fortress is free, its the same game but better. I wasn't payed or anything to say this, but all this people profiting that Dwarf Fortress isn't well known to make ****** game ou of his concept sicks me http://bay12games.com/dwarves/

Really? Because it has dwarves and fortresses? Aside from that this have has a very different focus and style of gameplay.

I don't think it's like Dwarf Fortress, because there are lots of differences.

I too encourage everyone to check Dwarf Fortress, because Lord of Dwarves is obviously inspired by it.
However this game seems to have a different focus : building a fortress while Dwarf Fortress focuses on generating entire living and realistic worlds (and then building a fortress in this world or exploring it as an adventurer).
While the basics look similar (with already some minor differences), I hope the developer of Lord of Dwarves will try to differentiate their game from Dwarf Fortress in the future.

It will be one of the best games I've ever seen, but you have to keep working on it. I'm tracking it!
