Public, freely available version 0.8, last updated 25th February 2020 is available as Dwerg Saga Free from itch.io.
Persistent, shared-universe version 0.8, last updated 25th February 2020 is available to $3-tier patrons as Dwerg Saga from itch.io. Cloud service is disabled until September 2020.

Welcome to Dwerg Saga and a world of deep storytelling. Guide your clan of Dwergs as they establish a new home in the untamed wilderness. Watch as they forge friendships, sing tales of their forefathers, suffer the pangs of unrequited love, take up arms and seek adventure wherever you take them.

Inspired by Dwarf Fortress, Dwerg Saga aims to create dramatic and believable stories from the interactions between Dwergs, their environment and what they build. Players interact with a persistent shared world that is mapped to the real world. As well as playing privately, players can simultaneously play together with others in their vicinity. Dwerg Saga is being designed with usability as a key feature so it's easy to pick up and play anywhere and anytime.

About me
Hi and thanks for visiting my Patreon page! I'm Jock and I've been programming computer games since I was 12 years old. I worked professionally in the games industry for nine years and subsequently for eight years as a software engineer developing iOS and Android apps. I started working on Dwerg Saga in my spare time in December 2017 and left my job to work on it full time in September 2019.

The free, single-player and LAN version of the game is updated intermittently. The persistent, shared-universe version of the game is updated monthly.

What I am working on currently and for the next month or so:

  1. Stockpiles
  2. First workshop
  3. Building materials
  4. Items from workshops
  5. Conversations & Dramatic events
  6. Wild Animal AI
  7. Combat
$33 of $4,000 per month
Hire a writer to help with story creation. The story of your clan of Dwergs is the most important part of the game. I have a good idea of how these will be created and intend to have a first example working in early 2020. A writer with experience of interactive fiction would be ideal but not essential.
