Launch Alert: First Dwarf early access release date announced

Star Drifters developers have proudly announced the release date of their latest game, “First Dwarf.” The game will be available in Early Access on Steam starting June 19th. To celebrate, they have revealed a new trailer. Players eager to explore this unique blend of genres can also try out the demo version now on Steam.

During the open tests held between March and April, almost 25,000 people played First Dwarf. This shows how many players wait for the chance to experience the adventures of the dwarf Tru and his dragoness companion, Ragna. The game attracts players with its diverse gameplay. It combines the most desired features of colony survival, action RPGs, city builders, and tower defence games.

First Dwarf 1

The story developed by the team at Star Drifters will immerse players in the world of Driftland, a realm consisting of floating islands. On one of these islands, a dwarf crash-lands while on a mission to find a new home for his kin. The hero must survive in an unknown and hostile environment to transform the island into a haven for future settlers. Fortunately, Tru won’t be alone in his mission. He’ll be aided by the dragoness Ragna and a mighty mech, which he’ll operate himself to move around the island, collect resources, and build.

First Dwarf also features online and local co-op modes, allowing two players to join forces and take on the roles of either the dwarf or the dragoness, exploring, building, and uncovering new adventures together. The fun won’t be limited to just one island. As Tru progresses, he’ll visit various diverse and mysterious locations, expanding the scope of adventure and discovery. Everything is part of an effort to save the dwarves and uncover the truth about the expedition that his father disappeared on years ago.
