This is the most promising of the flood of upcoming TAB clones. While most of these games try to focus on one of the various possible modes to the exclusion of all others, this one tries to do it all: campaign, sandbox, 4-player co-op, ranked AND 4v4 PVP. Moreover, the resource-gathering and building elements seem super-complex, with no less than THIRTY different resources, and Minecraft-level mining and very elaborate bases. Plus MOBA-style player classes on top of it. And apparently four players can play with a single copy, which should be extremely helpful in attracting a large playerbase...

Can these devs deliver on all this shit?

Let's just say that I sure hope so. However, one thing I can already say is that the screens have decent detail but far from TAB's unique and flawlessly executed aesthetic. So that's a bit of a disappointment, so far. But no game in the genre comes anywhere near TAB's aesthetics anyway, so it's a bit too much to try to hold all future games to this standard, and especially a game as mechanically ambitious as this. So, all things told, this is easily my most wanted multiplayer game right now.

DwarfHeim is a Strategy game where you build, manage and defend a Dwarven city against the constant threats of feral trolls and rivaling dwarven clans in a search for the ancient throne of DwarfHeim. The game is the first RTS to feature a multiplayer co-op where you and your team must work together using your different classes and abilities to gather resources, grow and defend your dwarven city.

Reclaim the throne
Survive the dangers of Agartha and expand into the wilderness, find the long forgotten clues of your origins and search for the throne of the ancient home of the dwarves, DwarfHeim. Build your settlement from a single building to a thriving stronghold by gathering resources, increase your population and keep your dwarven brothers happy by brewing potent ales.

  • Build, Defend, Mine and Manage a Dwarven City
  • Singleplayer Campaign
  • Sandbox mode
  • Competitive Co-op Multiplayer
  • 4 Unique Classes
  • Ranked Matchmaking

Units and buildings

Choose your own strategies. During the game, you must choose which units, buildings and technology best suits you and your team. Each choice can greatly affect your and your team's efficiency and the outcome of the game.

  • 18 Unique units
  • 30 Different resources
  • 34 Buildings
  • 72 Different unit abilities to turn the tide of combat

Up above and down below
To create more powerful units and buildings you need the rarest minerals which can only be found deep within the mines of Agartha. In addition to being able to move on the surface of Agartha, you can send your units to the underworld. Dig deeper, create intricate machinery to help you refine the minerals and build traps to avoid leaving yourself vulnerable to attacks from the things lurking in the dark.

Co-op 4vs4 RTS
DwarfHeim's main Co-op mode is Conquest, a competitive multiplayer game in which you and three other players must cooperate to tear through the enemy team’s defenses and destroy their Town Hall.

  • Builder: Support your team by healing units, building defenses and houses, creating farms and brew soothing brews as the Builder.
  • Miner: Focus on gathering resources, building machinery and traps, and blowing up defenses and buildings.
  • Diplomat: Sneak through enemy defenses, place important sentries and sabotage their buildings and machinery, or trade your way to riches as the Diplomat.
  • Warrior: Train your army and defend the town, kill creeps to get gold and equip your army with legendary weapons to destroy the enemy team.

Friend-pass

DwarfHeim's online co-op is best when played with friends, which is why, if you own the game, we want you to be able to invite your friends to try it out with you. This way you can experience the multiplayer as it's meant to be played.

Friend-pass is a free downloadable client of DwarfHeim that allows you to invite your friends to a lobby, even if they haven’t purchased the game.

Ranked matchmaking
Rank up by playing and winning competitive matches, and face off against players on your own skill level to become the true ruler of DwarfHeim.

Original Story Campaign
Image

Ages ago, an event known only as the Fall, scattered the dwarven clans and forced them to live as refugees in Agartha. Dwarfheim has since been reduced to myth, and only mentioned in song and ancient tales. But as something stirs within the depths of Agartha, the four clans must once again unite, and begin the search for their homeland in earnest.

Original art and soundtrack
We believe in good old fashioned, home-made produce. At Pineleaf everything from code, art and audio is made in-house to ensure that the game lives up to our expectations and yours.
