Hi, Warsmiths!

We have some exciting news: Dwerve has been selected for PAX Rising, so we'll be at PAX East! Don't worry, other fantastic and long-awaited news is coming soonish too. Our party of humble devs can see the light at the end of the dungeon!

πŸ’Ž Dwerve Makes PAX Rising!

Dwerve has been selected for PAX Rising, so we'll be at PAX East! PAX Rising showcases indie games that PAX believes have the chance to rise about their modest beginnings, by growing as a company, establishing a fan base or pushing the industry. PAX East takes place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from Thursday, April 21 through Sunday, April 24. If you want to attend PAX EAST and hang out with us in person, you can purchase badges here.

Dev Update + Cool Art!

In case you missed our last Kickstarter updates, here's a summary of what we've been working on this year so far!

⭐ Turret & Trap Upgrades

Awhile back we gave Sla's Shop, where you use scrap to upgrade your turrets and traps, a big UI makeover (these icons are placeholder):

We also designed all of the turret & trap upgrades! Each turret & trap has its own upgrade tree with a total of 100+ upgrades! Check out the actual upgrade icons (adding in soon) that Enchae just finished:

πŸ”₯ Hero Abilities & Artifacts

We also implemented all of the artifacts, which give Dwerve abilities, some active and some passive! Check out the artifact icons:

Here you can see the Warhammer Smash in action:

πŸ‘„ Localization

Translators have localized a majority of the game to Spanish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Simplified Chinese!

🌎 World Map

All of the world maps are done for each biome! Now we're implementing the world map in-game. Here's the overworld map of the above-surface locations:

And here's a preview of the Fungi Caves biome which is inside the mountain:


🎨 Updating Art Assets

We've spent a lot of time adding and improving art assets! We want the game to look amazing! Check out this Gnobling Shrine:

We've also been giving the character portraits a makeover:
