Step into the shoes of Tru, a brave dwarven explorer who has been shipwrecked on the floating islands of Driftland. But Tru is not alone in this journey. With his engineering skills, he can repair and pilot a powerful mech, while also enlisting the help of Ragna, a she-dragon with the ability to fly and breathe fire. Together, they must navigate the treacherous land and build colonies, while also facing off against mysterious creatures that inhabit the islands.

At its core, First Dwarf is a unique mix of survival, colony management, tower defense, and action RPG. As Tru, players must build and manage their colonies, ensuring the survival of its inhabitants. This includes upgrading structures, crafting tools and weapons, and fulfilling the needs and desires of the settlers. But it’s not just about survival, as Tru has a personal mission to uncover the truth behind his father’s past expeditions and the evil that taints Driftland.

One of the most exciting features of First Dwarf is the ability to control Tru, pilot the powerful mech, and fly with Ragna the Dragon, each with their own unique upgrades and skills. And with the option to play in co-op mode, it adds an extra layer of fun and adventure to the game.

But beware, the floating islands of Driftland are not safe. From monster waves to natural disasters, Tru must prepare and build defenses to protect his settlements. With the help of defensive turrets and walls, players can fend off enemies, including the Tainted creatures that roam the islands. And for those who prefer a more compassionate approach, there is also the option to heal the Tainted creatures or purge the island of them.

The game’s developers, Star Drifters, have also announced open playtests on Steam. This allows players to get a first-hand experience of the game’s unique mix of gameplay. Simply head to the game’s Steam page and request access to join in on the adventure. The dwarves are counting on you!

First Dwarf is set to make its debut on PC, PlayStation5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch later this year. With its immersive gameplay and stunning visuals, this game is set to be a must-play for all RPG fans. So mark your calendars and get ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure in the skies of Driftland.

In conclusion, First Dwarf is more than just a game, it’s an adventure into a magical world filled with danger and mystery. So gather your survival and exploration skills and get ready to take on the challenge of building the ultimate sky-high colony.
