A Game of Dwarves
A dwarven prince on a quest to reclaim his people’s old country takes you on a journey through a continent, uncovering the buried mysteries of the Great War. The gameplay consists of ordering the inhabitants of a dwarven settlement to dig, build and conduct research in order to strengthen the clan, while defending themselves from the terrible beasts from the depths into which they delve. A unique world generates each time a new level starts, so you need to dynamically adapt your strategies and tactics during a session. As you advance, the dwarves will level up and gain new skills, progressing from weak dwarflings to near immortal warriors or master craftsmen. Be careful. The deeper you dig, the more dangerous foes you might unleash…
When Lucius was born on June 6, 1966, nobody expected him to be anything but a normal boy. Lucius grew up with everything he desired until his real father, the Devil, appeared in his dreams the night before Lucius’ 6th birthday, revealing that Lucius was his son. The Beast, through Lucius, managed to bring a descendant back to the Earth — and so it is Lucius’ task to accomplish the Devil’s missions and gain control over the world. But first, Lucius must get rid of his family and the servants to make their wealth and power his. Equipped with supernatural powers, Lucius embarks on a bloody tour of horror through his house. And so begins what looks like just an unfortunate set of accidents.
