The venue of the game is an underground village.

Caves, smoothly lightened with the warm orange colour of the fire torches. The environment has been conceived with love to details. A warm green is the dominating color of the dwarf caves. The Graphical style is realistic. No brutal spladder is integrated in game, which makes it playable without age limit. Till now we have no hard core or casual degrees, we will program this depending on the gamers feedback.


RPG with Singleplayer/Multiplayer/Co-Op modus

Ralin - Dwarf Wars is a Roleplaying game. Right now the downloaded version is a Singleplayer and a Multiplayer as separated software. In a few days we will release an updated version including the Multiplayer modus in the main game. You can also download a free server software. No need to go online to play, just install the server on a linux machine and start playing with your friends. The server software is open source. We will go public with this software on github.

We are planning to involve the community in the development decisions. We have a strong vision of making games and we want to make them for gamers. But yes, we have a few nice ideas for unique mechanics and cool interactions. In this alpha and the upcoming alphas, we want to fix first all the small an major issues with animations, sounds, movements and AI.

WOW! You actually know, what you are doing! Nice art-direction, superb GUI, those blue and red meters turned out really good. You lucky to have such a good animator, 3D modelers and possibly concept artist.

If you continue along this path - it looks like only success awaits you in the end. Congratulations for this great work!

Thank you very much for this kind words.

We are finishing just now a bugfixed version with all the sounds like footsteps and attack sounds. We rewrote the attack and AI code. And for the rest of the day we will develop the leveling-system.

Hope that you will enjoy the next release too.
