    [GAME] Dwarrows - A Peaceful Adventure/Townbuilder

    Hello Unreal community,

    We (Lithic Entertainment) are a small team of 3 who have been working on this UE4 game for some time now (started back in UDK) and we've been Greenlit on Steam Greenlight, and have been successfully crowd funded on Kickstarter.

    Development is fairly far along, though we are still considering it early or pre-alpha stages. We welcome any and all feedback! I intend to update this thread with updates along the way, so feel free to subscribe to it.

    Gameplay Trailer

    Pitch
    Dwarrows is a Peaceful Action-Adventure game, where the player uses the resources and treasures to build their own town.

    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.

    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.

    City Building Details
    • Discover new buildings by trying new recipes at the blueprint design station
    • Strategically build structures that will maintain your town and unlock new abilities.
      Examples:
      • Build markets to better the economy and add to your town’s resource capacity
      • Build houses to increase population capacity
      • Build farms to feed and maintain your population
      • Build recreational and entertainment structures to keep your townsfolk happy and productive


    Adventuring Details
    • Discover artifacts that provide bonuses to your heroes and your town
    • Encounter puzzling trials left behind by an ancient people (Metroid-vania style puzzling)
    • Find new building blueprints by solving the trials
    • Invite wandering Wood Elves to live and work in your town
    • Meet strange and interesting characters, and quest to help them
    • Switch between 3 uniquely skilled characters and combine their abilities to solve puzzles (Similar to Trine and The Cave)


    Explore the woods to gather useful resources to help build your town


    Discover new structures at the blueprint table and build a sustainable city


    While searching the world for ways to help in your town-building goals, you will encounter the ruins of an ancient civilization. Scattered throughout are trials and barriers you must overcome, and puzzles to solve.


    You will find treasure hidden throughout the ruins as well as the woodlands.

    Area Contrasts

    Much of Dwarrows takes place in a calm/happy place (Dusken Woodlands):

    But other areas of the game have a different emotional beat, more sombre (Vigil Pines):

    The above two areas are part of the open outdoor world above, but there are also ancient underground passages.
    These are the 'dungeon' or 'temple' levels in Dwarrows where the player goes through trials in order to find new building blueprints for their town and other treasures.

              There won't be any conventional combat system, no; If there are confrontations (maybe some 'boss' fights), it will be through puzzling mechanics, like in "Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons".
              We're really pushing for the calm/peaceful feeling in the game, which has it's own set of challenges.

                    Thanks for the kind words I'll pass it on to our artist!


                    While not an update on the game (we've been in bug fix mode over here), this is how we're doing on Greenlight at the moment.

                      Late Update: Greenlit!

                      Hey all, I neglected to update this thread: We were Greenlit!!

                      We updated our blog with our Steam Greenlight experience: DevBlog#5 - Greenlight On a $0 Ad Budget

                      While we're at it, some more screen grabs from the game:
                      One more for Vigil Pines

                        Our artist has been putting together a new area for Dwarrows called "Stone Man Falls". The "Stone Man" is named Promet, he's a main quest character in the works:

                        He's a big dude, so we placed down our Halfling nearby for comparison sake. When interacting with him, we want him to feel like a large lumbering type of character, kind of goofy but with a not-so-goofy story to him.

                        This is the first area that we do with water and water falls. We're aiming for cartoony and refreshing.

                            Thanks, and best of luck to you in your campaign! I was already following you on Twitter, so I' had already voted for it (I like turn based games, gave it a yep)
                            Your game looks like a good one to me, I doubt you'll have any problems getting Greenlit
