Dwelvers is now available on Steam

About Dwelvers

Dwelvers is a real time strategy game inspired by the old time classics 'Dungeon Keeper' and 'The Settlers'. The player takes the form of an evil Dungeon Lord who needs to guide their minions in digging out paths and rooms, and claiming them for themselves, growing their dungeon. The game will be based on creating your minions and keeping them pleased in various ways. Then you will lead them into battle to defeat your enemy and claim victory! The most challenging part for the player will be creating advanced production chains so as to have enough food to keep their creatures well fed, enough weapons and armour to outfit their army as a force to be reckoned with, and of course enough beer to keep them satisfied with you as their master. A drunk minion is a happy minion! The theme of the game will have a lot of dark humour, and each creature will have its own personality, demands and fighting style; forcing the player to handle all the creatures in different ways in order to max out their potential. A happy minion is a useful minion!

 

Dwelvers first day on Steam

So how to sum up the first day on Steam… First off, it have been a lot of fun :D And I am very relived over that we haven’t had any unexpected incidents. There are some bugs with the game of course, but that was expected.

The reviews have been really good, and for that I am very happy!

Blitzkriegsler has uploaded his latest Dwelvers videos, and for that I am really grateful! This goes out to all the other YouTube reviewers of Dwelvers, don’t forget to add them here, you will get a lot of views and Dwelvers will get publicity, so it is a win / win situation :)

Steam-keys

All the steam keys to the pre-orderers has been sent out now, if you haven’t gotten one, then contact me from http://dwelvers.com/contacts/ and I will send the keys.

There was also a issue that some people thought that I meant that the pre-orderers should get four steam keys and not three, they thought that they paid for the first key and get three keys for free. While I meant that you get to download the game from the website and also get three steam keys. I have made a topic about it at the steam forum:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/276870/discussions/0/616187839234753040/

So if you feel like I tricked you and that you were expecting 4 keys, please contact me at: http://dwelvers.com/contacts/ and I will send the extra key :)

Future updates

Right now there are a lot of administrative work that is keeping me away from the development, and I hope everyone can understand that. I will focus on getting the steam page ready with a to do list and a FAQ so that new players knows what stage of the development Dwelvers is and gets some of the more common questions answered. I will make a fresh coding start on Monday and also explain what we have planned for the next version, and as usual, the more feedback the better ;)

Link to the Steam page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/276870/

The steam demo is unfortunately still under review, so the demo may drop in the next day. But it is still available for download from the website.
Dwelvers will cost $15 on Steam with a release discount of 20% the first week. The offer on 3 free steam keys will still be available until one hour before the steam release.
I couldn’t get the steam keys before it was approved by valve, and as the steam keys request has be approved as well they may not be delivered to all the pre-orderers before the steam release, but shortly afterwards…

New Dwelvers trailer and new office

Some of you may have already seen this trailer as I posted it on the forum earlier this week. This is the third attempt of making a good trailer video to Steam Early Access. I want to thank all of you here at the forum for the honest feedback I got when making and presenting the different videos, it took me an extra workday to get it finished thanks to your feedback, but it was definitely worth it.

This is so exciting, I have just got a new office together with a couple of friends where I can develop Dwelvers from. My motivation is through the roof!

MeAndMyOffice

Everything is now finished on the steam site, all that is left now is for us to get an approval from valve. Once we got that approval I will set a specific date on the steam release. In the meanwhile I will start giving out steam keys to all of the pre-orderers, and you should get them before the steam release. I will also focus on solving as many bugs as possible before the release, but I will not postpone the release because of any bugs. This is because I am way behind my steam release deadline.

If you are planning on buying it on steam you should consider pre-ordering it because right now we have the offer that all pre-orderers will get THREE FREE STEAM-KEYS once Dwelvers is released on steam, and that offer will expire in less than a week.

See you all soon!

Dwelvers Alpha v0.8c is now released

Dwelvers Alpha v0.8c has now been released to the pre-orderers. You can find the instructions on how to download it under the download tab.

Hopefully this will be the last version released before the Steam release, it all depends on if anyone find any game-breaking bugs. The plan now is for me to finish up the new trailer video and then do some design work on the Steam page.

The pre-order and get THREE FREE STEAM-KEYS offer is still available until the steam release, and the steam keys will be distributed by mail to all of you that have per-ordered the game before the steam release. I will post updates on the website, facebook, twitter and on the forum when this is done just to let you all know that the steam keys has been sent out.

Hopefully we will be able to make the steam release before the end of the week, I am really careful about this release because Dwelvers will be meeting a new audience of gamers, and I want the meeting to be as good as possible :) So please have patience with me, this release is very important to get right!
