When I saw the first trailer for A Game of Dwarves found the concept quite interesting reminding me of a modern version of Dungeon Keeper, with workout warriors and miners to extract gold. It was a new strategy game in the hands of Paradox, just knew I was in good hands. The freedom of The Game of Dwarves seemed to be a point in favor and if everything else were minimally decent knew it would be a game to spend a few good hours.
The dwarves were a noble race n antiquity. They ruled ancestral lands along with elves and other creatures. But when it ventured far north, found the mages, with which waged a war with the other races, taking the elves and dwarves to flee to retreat to an isolated island that the magicians could not reach, or so the story goes .
