Description

Gameplay
In this peaceful Town-building, Adventure game, take control of three uniquely skilled characters to leave the confines of the town, explore the lush forest surrounding it, and work together to solve puzzles. Gather resources to build your town, invite the wandering elves to join it, and discover treasures within the ruins of a forgotten civilization.

About the Game
The Wood-Elves need a new home. With their land destroyed, the Elf Queen of the commonwealth has enlisted her finest colonizers to assist them in relocating and building.

History

Today, Dwarrows is a Town-Building game with Adventure inspired by games such as Zelda and Trine, but it began as an entirely different game.

It was originally a team-based, multiplayer, 3rd person, fantasy, tournament game built in Unreal Engine 3. It had just reached the point in development where the team could really start playing it and getting a sense for how the gameplay would actually feel in the final version. After some testing, the team decided they hated it.

It was a valuable experiment, but ultimately the team didn’t want to push a game they wouldn’t actually want to play as well. Deciding to salvage what they could from the assets, they made the decision to design a game that fit the genres that they loved.

Around the same time, Unreal Engine 4 was just released. Taking advantage of this opportunity for a fresh start, they moved into the new engine with no regrets and began development on Dwarrows as we know it today.
