Hello.
I'm Sebt fron DK.boo.pl, someone's may know me writing on Subterranean Games WFTO forum.

Some of You I'm sure searched or is searching for game like Dungeon Keeper or something similar. Except WFTO I found another DK like game that has quite unique gameplay, where You can dig tunnels for plenty of resources hidden in ground. What's more we would built very specific trap mechanism that wasn't known in any DK like games. You could even customize Your dungeon by setting various things, machines and decorations in Your rooms.
This game is called Dwelvers and it's a spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper with some mechanisms known from Settlers games.

Interesting is that only one man is making this game. He has few people that helps him with music or graphics, but from the beginning he makes everything alone - codes, 3d graphic, assets etc.

I encourage You to watch the latest updates. This project has more and more fans and IMO is further than WFTO in development stage. ;)

Anyways, I'm surprised this place didn't already have a thread about (Dungeon) Dwelvers, least the word is being spread.

I saw that there is already topic about Dwelvers, but this game had name Dungeon Dwellers. I'm impressed about work of one guy...

We have like 3 threads about that, two of them are in this Sub-Forum, no idea where the other one was though. I'm too lazy to look for it. :P

Wait, so what's the game name now? Is it Dungeon Dwellers, or Dwelvers? It seems even the creator can't decide which of the two it is.

I think he went through thousands of phases where he wanted to make a dungeon keeper game to his own type of dungeon keeper game, to his own style of dungeon keeper to another style which made people scream that should be darker while wanting to make his own game.

I'm starting to think Dungeon Keeper Fans are about as good as Sonic fans now.

I've removed all flame bait related content. Next time, think of what you're saying before you post it. I'll be handing out more than a warning if it occurs again.

Dandy theory, but that has nothing to do with what I asked.

woah, this looks awesome. i love the concept of digging vertically as well as horizontally, always thought DK could use more varied terrain

never played dwarf fortress, but in the latest dwelvers version the map has multiple levels so you can dig up and down instead of just horizontaly, its awesome
