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 0.8f released

Dwelvers Alpha v0.8f has now been released, it took a little longer than expected because I started on the first part of making the buildings moddable.

So now all the buildings have separate folders in media/xml/buildings with separate textures instead of loading them all from a big image with tiled textures. Also, all the buildings content such as textures, models etc are now loaded from xml files, and these xml files can be modified by anyone.

It is not fully moddable yet, you can't add new buildings but you can change the models and textures, and also alternate the current content with other content with the purpose of creating more variation in the game. I will try to get a manual on how it all works asap :)

New features in Patch 0.8f

Plans for the next patch

I have noticed that the FPS have started to get a little low, so I will probably spend a couple of days optimizing the game so that the not-so-new computers can play the game smoothly as well.

There have been some complaints about the huge amount of creatures produced by the Dark Mother, I will probably give the player an option to limit the creature production somehow. Not everyone wants 120 imps running around in the dungeon, no matter how cute they are :)

It is now time to take a look at the equipment system, the initial idea was that all the creatures should be born naked, and that the player will dress them. But this has not been an option yet because I find the equipment system way too tedious atm, and it needs to be a lot more automatic and a lot less micro management.

Bugs... I haven't had the time to go through the current bugs with this version, but this is something I will deal with in the next one.

I will implement than more what is listed here, but this is what I find the most urgent to add atm.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to limit the creature production and make the equipment system simpler, then you can your suggestion here at the forum and help me with the development.

I hope you all like this patch, happy playing :)

Hi. First of all this game looks promising. I'm a huge fan of settlers and games like this and it looks awsome. When i tryed to play the dwelvers launcher gave an error saying Dwelvers.exe could not be found. Even though i just installed the game. Then i reinstalled it and it was still missing.

Argh, the launcher is still set on the non demo file :S I will upload a functioning version shortly. A quick hack to make it work with this current version is to rename the "dwelversdemo.exe" file to "dwelvers.exe" in the game folder.

I'm a fan of Dungeon Keeper but i never heard of this until now! Anyway first impression is i really love multiple height dungeon and item crafting system. You guys really added up something fresh instead of trying too hard to become Dungeon Keeper 1 V.2.0

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 :)
