About Haiku Interactive

The free demo version 0.12, last updated 24th June 2020 is available from itch.io.
Persistent, shared-universe, updated monthly is available to $3-tier patrons as Dwerg Saga from itch.io. The Cloud service is disabled until funding goals are achieved.

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 as features are completed.

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

  1. Building materials - Done
  2. First workshop - Done
  3. Items from workshops - Done
  4. Risk and reward progression - Done
  5. First storylet - In progress
  6. Combat - Done
  7. Workshop tutorial - In progress
$30.34 of $100 per month
Provide a lobby-service so users can play over the internet.
