It's official! The Dwarves
will indeed be coming to Xbox One. The makers at KING Art Games have reached their Kickstarter goal, so the tactical RPG's production can continue. In celebration, they've released their first gameplay trailer. This is a pre-alpha video, so much of it could change, but it's meant just to give us an impression of what's to come.
“Be as steadfast as the granite of which we are made!” the battlecry of King Giselbert, leader of the Fifthling tribe, echoes over the battlements of the mighty fortress at the Stone Gateway. And verily, steadfast the few surviving defenders need to be, as the hordes of Tion – Orcs, Ogres and Dark Elves – are marching in by the hundreds and thousands. There are only a few dozen brave dwarven warriors standing between Girdlegard and these creatures of the darkness. And none of them will see the light of the new dawn…
With this grim prologue, describing a battle that took place over 1.000 years ago, the fantasy tactical RPG The Dwarves begins.
With an initial goal of $260,000, the Kickstarter total for the title is just over $270,000, and the developers are now working toward stretch goals: new game modes, a cooperative multiplayer, a brand-new character, additional quests, orchestral music, and more, depending on support. If any of these are something you're interested in, you can check out their Kickstarter page here
