Following its début at Gamescom in August, KING Art Games looks to the gaming community to get The Dwarves completed.
KING Art Games’ Creative Director Jan Theysen:
Both of our previous crowdfunding campaigns have been a great experience for us. We could make the games the way we’ve envisioned them, and are sure that the final games were improved due to the early community feedback. So for us it’s a no-brainer to go to Kickstarter once more. If you want more beer, beards and battles in your life, The Dwarves is the game for you.
Based on the Markus Heitz bestselling fantasy novel, of the same name, players will follow the story of Tungdil Goldhand, a young dwarf raised among humans, who embarks on an epic journey to find his true origin.
Throughout his journey, Tungdil will encounter up to 12 companions, all with their own individual skills and backstory, who can join him on his quest. Such as furious dwarf twins, Boindil and Boendal, who have fought in hundreds of battles. Or the more unusual Rodario, a human actor, who is a weak fighter, but can masquerade himself to catch his opponents by surprise.
The Dwarves features an unprecedented physics-based real-time combat system, and will pit heroes against huge hordes of enemies across 200 locations. Facing enemy troops, completing varied quests, and speaking to numerous NPCs, players will get to experience the world and its rich history.
The Dwarves is currently in development for Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4. If you wish to back The Dwarves, you can visit the Kickstarter page, here.
