Game to Fund: “Dwarven Delve” Needs Help Getting Off the Ground
Now if this is not the point of KickStarter then I don’t know what is. TinkerHouse Games is in need of a few good gamers to help them fund their unique creative venture. Dwarven Delve is an action-play, dungeon crawl, and rotating puzzle game RPG all rolled into one that they have claimed to be Diablo meets Pipe Mania. A heavy comparison considering Diablo’s successful game history and the fact that I think they may have a slightly unhealthy cult following.
Anyway, the name basically explains it all. In this genre crossover you’re navigating a party of six dwarves and you are literally delving into an underground cavern of tunnels (see what I mean). Throughout the levels you are battling goblin looking creatures, collecting resources, ancestral relics, and changing the very structure of the cavern itself, all for the purpose of learning about your past and attempting to break a curse that has been cast over your fading race. Each level is filled with tunnels within rotating hexagon shaped pieces that you have to connect in order to get safely through to the exit. Sound simple enough?
After playing the demo, I do have to say that I am rather impressed with what they’ve done so far. The graphics are well done and shows that they took their time with detail, which I enjoy. The sound is clear, game play fully functional, and it ran well over my browser with no lagging that I could notice. Then, as if anticipating their success in this game’s completion, there is also a vote on Steam Greenlight to get it on Steam. Please do keep in mind (because so many do not), that this is an alpha demo and not all features that will be in the game are available for the test play. So, if you do like the game after playing the demo and want to help along the gaming development process, then head over to KickStarter and help these developers with a $10 donation.
