Dwerve is a tower defense dungeon crawler RPG. It tells the story of a young dwarven tinkerer that adventures into dwarven ruins to unearth the lost technologies of the ancient warsmiths — turrets and traps, the only weapons that can protect the dwarves from Witch Queen Vandra the Wicked and her army of bloodthirsty trolls and monstrous creatures.
Inspired by the SNES classics we grew up playing, Dwerve takes all the RPG mechanics you know and love like dungeon crawling, looting, questing, exploring, and storytelling, and presents it with a new style of tactical turret-based combat.
Tactical turret-based combat. Combat involves making strategic decisions about which turrets and traps to build and where. During a battle you must rebuild, swap out, and reposition turrets to adapt to new waves of enemies and a dynamic battlefield!
Upgrade your arsenal. Unlock 15+ turrets, each with it's own unique upgrade tree. Purchase upgrades that make the turrets stronger. You decide which turret upgrades best cater to your favorite strategies and play style!
Discover powerful artifacts. Discover all 5+ artifacts — an arrow-blocking shield, dashing boots, a bouncing boomerang, a ground-shaking hammer, and more! These artifacts give the player special abilities to fight and outmaneuver foes!
Fully dynamic lighting. Explore dimly lit dungeons that come to life with dynamic lights and shadows that offers a modernized take on SNES-inspired graphics that pushes the boundaries of pixel art games!
Story-based campaign. Unravel the history of the dwarves and the trolls in a story that features diverse characters, unpredictable plot, and a fantasy world with it's own mythology!
Explore ancient dungeons. Explore 30+ dungeons in 5+ biomes, each with hidden secrets, mysterious puzzles, and interesting lore!
Dynamic battlefield. Engage in combat on a dynamic battlefield that changes as you fight with obstacles collapsing, falling from the ceiling, and emerging from the ground!
Solve challenging puzzles. Want to get extra loot or lore? Solve an optional puzzle! Or don't — it's up to you!
Complete daring quests. Each dungeon has it's own specific story-based objectives that you must complete to to progress the story.
Loot corpses and treasure chests. Collect health potions, scrap, armor, and other useful items from the bloodsoaked corpses of your slain enemies!
