In case people might not know about this wonderful game. I, for one, found out about it only recently. It's a really great game, where you gather resources (any - from wood and stone to coal, mithril and food), build your stronghold (in any fashion you like, there is a plenty of materials and possibilities) and fend off enemy attacks (mostly undead, but also yeeties, for example, if you play in the snow world). Graphics are simple and 2-D but very pleasant to eyes and well drawn, and the game keeps you busy all the time, for you must not only gather supplies and build your keep but also feed your dwarves and let them rest when they are injured. The most I like about the game is how everything is logical and connected, and that you encounter many dangers on the way - from the skeletons rising from the graves at night to giant ants and giant worm offsprings (and cave goblins in the underground world) when you dig deep underground. There are now four different worlds in the game, all with different landscape, problems and challenges, but also with different possibilities like ice walls or tables in the snow world. Perhaps the best dwarven game I've seen - a great mixture of Dungeon Keeper, Terraria, Minecraft and Dwarf Fortress. Try it you have not still :)

 

Some gameplay. As of now the latest version is 1.3 with Sisters in arms DLC.

I have this game! I have wasted so many hours playing it!
New dwarves arrive in woollen clothes, without tools or weapons, you can train them, give them tasks and increase their skills.
Warriors, mechanical bow operators and wiz- er, runesmiths...

It's a bit like minecraft, a bit like dwarf fortress, and you can run it from your phone.

Thunderforge seal of approval! :-)

Aye, and dwarf maidens as well. Quite nice ^_^ also I like the progress of armor - from simple breastplates and wooden hats to full plate armor from mithril. Mithril helms are so dwarvish in looking!

Aye, with the Sisters in Arms DLC I have played all the campaign missions again.

But sadly you can only have firearms in the Underground world. ;)

Aye, it's sad indeed, and I don't understand why only in the Underground level, I like powder weapon! Also I noticed that you can't do something if it's not present in the technology tree, even if you know the scheme. You can only buy it, and even then firearms can't be even bought if it's not Underground world :(
