Light hearted Gameplay

With The Dwarves of Glistenveld, we've tried to bring a lighter tone to the RTS genre, with an emphasis on comical characters and lore, as well as exploring ways of achieving more 'feel-good' gameplay, rather than punishing mechanics. This does not mean the game will be a push-over however, you never know when a nasty goblin might come bursting through a wall and scare the living daylights out of poor Bobbo!

Planned Features - Extensive Mod Support

Modding support is to become one of the main focuses of the game. We have taken on an ambitious project, but we dream of a content-rich game with many more defences, upgrades, enemies, scenarios and home improvements than we can think of. The engine has been built from scratch, and we plan for opensource development one day. The game is made in Java but will also support scripting in JavaScript, Python and Ruby. On top of this, many aspects of the game can already be modified in the extensive in-game editor, and configuration files.
