The Dwarves is a fantasy role-playing game with a strong story and tactically challenging real-time battles. 15 playable heroes, each with individual skills, are to be deployed cleverly. Take on superior numbers of orcs, ogres, älfs, bögnilim, zombies, dark mages and many more foes, to give them the low-down.

Dwarves! Finally the coolest fantasy people are in the spotlight. The NPC days of the bearded axe-wielders are over – the age of the dwarves has come!

Based on the bestselling novel “The Dwarves” by Markus Heitz you’ll experience a fascinating tale revolving around the coolest fantasy race ever: The Dwarves!
  • Tactical real-time battles: You’re fighting hundreds of foes with just a handfull of heroes. You can pause anytime to tactically plan the next smart move.
  • Crowd Combat: All creatures on the battlefield are rendered with physical complexity – that’s why the battles feel especially dynamic and “real”, and enabling a lot of tactical finesse.
  • Captivating story: Join the dwarf Tungdil on his adventurous journey across Girdlegard.
  • Explore the world: Uncover secrets, learn more about the game world and its inhabitants, and solve optional puzzles.
  • Delve into the world map: Girdlegard ranges from snow-covered summits to shimmering deserts. You can move freely on the world map, meet numerous characters, and experience adventures. But beware: A lot of your actions on the world map have far-reaching consequences!

  1. Nice one
    by Alecat, Canada - Apr 1st 2018

    It seems a bit hard to learn but easy to play not for me but that does not mean it is a bad game

  2. Good audio book, bad combat
    by Noodles214, Germany - Feb 1st 2018

    The Dwarves plays like an audio book with making decisions and combat. You travel on a world map, listen to the narrator and at some points you can explore the levels or you have to fight. While the story is well told, the combat doesn't make a lot of fun, that's why I played on Easy. The combat system is pausable real-time combat. But it's much too chaotic, confusing and the pathfinding of your heroes doesn't work well, which frustrates at some points. So I recommend you playing on Easy and enjoying the story.

  3. The Dwarves review
    by Tizoc, United Kingdom - Dec 31st 2017

    While flawed, I found it a neat interpretation of the book as a cRPG. Worth checking out if you are a fan of the first book.
