About this project


Please vote for our Project Greenlight entry!

Picture one of the intricate dungeon dioramas you see people using at conventions and in their tabletop games at home. Now picture that entire scene moving all at once. The monsters, the traps, the plants, the monster plant traps—the entire ecology—come to life and out for your heroes’ blood! 

But have no fear. Not only do you control the baddest bunch of dwarves this side of a misty mountain, you control the dungeon, too. If you don’t like the layout, change it. Reroute the monsters, cut them off from your heroes or make them fight other monsters.

We want to make a game where killing the monsters with the dungeon is as much fun as pummeling them with the heroes.

Dwarven Delve will initially ship for iPad and Android tablets. 

Windows 8 tablets, PC, and Macs will follow post ship.

We'll post important updates here as we get them out to backers.

Update 6 - Delving into... Puzzles

Update 3 - Delving into... Relics

Update 2 - Delving into... Basic Gameplay

Dwarven Delve sits somewhere between an action dungeon crawl and a light puzzle game. That’s why we’re calling it an action puzzle crawl. The players control the moment-to-moment actions of the party while also managing the level layout and a variety of combo abilities and dungeon features for satisfying monster carnage.

The core mechanic is centered around rotating hex tiles, each displaying a section of tunnel. The players create dungeon layouts on the fly by connecting adjoining sections in different ways.

Monsters will generally track the party when they’re in the connected dungeon with the dwarves and patrol the area when disconnected from it. But there are many different monsters planned and not all of them will play by the same rules. <cough> Gelatinous Hex, <cough> for instance. <cough>

During combat, the player can use dwarven special abilities and relic powers in real-time to aid their doughty band.

At its most basic level, Dwarven Delve is about configuring an active dungeon to minimize risk and maximize reward while using special abilities at the right times to overcome obstacles and get out alive.

There are six main characters in the game, each with his or her own backstory, special ability, and signature gear.

A fierce warrior who motivates by deeds and tales of past glories.
The Warbeard is the party leader and keeper of the clan’s lineage and history.

The Warbeard’s War Wind ability gives the entire party a temporary buff to damage.

An acquisitive mind always searching for lost truths and hidden portents in the ruins of his forebears. The Spellforger sees the wisdom in traveling with companions, although that doesn’t mean he always trusts them.

The Spellforger’s Stonespike ability deals damage to all enemies in a targeted hex.

The master of dwarven spirits, both imbibed and eternal. The Godbinder is a gregarious soul who mixes ales and religions with equal abandon.

The Godbinder’s Soul Kindle ability heals the entire party back to full health.

A craftsman more than eager to test her latest inventions on the front lines of battle. Equally at home hammering red-hot steel or gloamling heads. Sometimes she’s even been known to do both at once.

The Tinkersmith’s Hovermine ability sets a charge to explode in her current hex the next time an enemy enters it.

All Stonebreakers know this truth: with every blow of the pick, you dice with fate. You may strike it rich or unseal your doom. The Stonebreaker plays the odds with a jocular bravado too crazy to be anything but sincere.

The Stonebreaker’s Sunder ability destroys walls to create new passages and stuns all enemies in the adjoining hex.

The Wayfinder is the party scout. While she may not always seem firmly rooted in the present, she listens to the stillness of the deep and hears in it the surest path to safety.

The Wayfinder’s Echo Lure ability draws nearby monsters into the targeted hex.

Our dwarves don't level up in the same way as most RPGs. Rather than accumulating experience points, they level up through the discovery of their lineage and in recovering lost clan relics.

Scattered throughout the deep are ancient clan stones that recount the history of the dwarves through all the ages that have gone before.

Some recount the deeds of long-forgotten ancestors while others hold powerful clan relics that can be fully restored with the right resources.

As each clan lineage fills with rediscovered ancestors and relics are unearthed and returned to glory, the party will gain buffs to existing abilities and access to all-new ones. 

Our heroes live in a subterranean realm of vast, cavernous expanses and labyrinthine tunnels in which countless kingdoms have risen and fallen through the ages. Their remains are buried like the bones of long dead beasts in the strata of the earth, layered one upon the other in the geological record of time.

The deep is also home to all manner of fantastical environments. Mushroom groves, iridescent caverns, crystalline passages, steamworks and bottomless pools are only some examples of the strange places that exist here. More mundane environments are also present, as are bubbling infernos and slick, dark fields of Earthblood. One can never be sure what the opening ahead will reveal.

Delvers must step cautiously here lest they add their bones to the cairns of the deep.

At first, our heroes appear to be nothing more than a veteran band of delvers doing what they do best: trudging through long-forgotten chambers, pummeling monstrous inhabitants and plundering ancient treasures. They have no ambition for larger pursuits. They are treasure-hunters and monster-slayers by birthright. This is simply what they do, and they do it well.

But then the chance discovery of a lost clan Warbeard tomb sets them down a path stretching back into their history, into the very heart of their subterranean world.

This delve will lead them to the very beginning of the curse which dooms their people—and the means to end it.

TinkerHouse Games is comprised of long-time professionals from both the tabletop and videogame industries. In the two years since its founding, the studio has shipped 5 titles:

  • Current — An original iOS title that blends elements of rhythm and match games to create an enjoyable, fast-paced arcade experience.

  • The Airhornsman — A video-editing app for iOS that lets users interject  PVP Online's popular Airhornsman character into their personal videos.

  • War Room — A game aid for the popular Warmachine and Hordes tabletop miniatures games, available for both iOs and Android.

  • Cthulhu Saves the World — A port of the popular Zeboyd Games RPG launched previously on XBLA and Steam for iOS, Android, and Mac.

Mark Jessup spent the past 15 years working at Wizards of the Coast to bring a wide range of analog and digital games to market, including over 40 original and licensed properties. He's been both a Creative Director and a MarComm Director over the years, often simultaneously. 

This has turned out to be great training for life as a startup founder.

Wendy has been in the technology industry for over 20 years working  with software and hardware, quality assurance and support, training and instruction, technical documentation and managing development.

Wendy is THG's Tinker Wrangler. Which is to say when Mark and Lane want to wax on regarding zombie apocalypse survival methodology Wendy says no.

Sean began coding games as a teenager on his Commodore 64. After over 15 years engineering systems for Fortune 500 companies, he returned his focus to his passion and has been developing games with TinkerHouse for the past two years.

He has a 13th Age character that can shape wood. That provides exactly the type of table talk you would expect.

Peter is an author and game designer who has wrangled words for companies such as White Wolf Publishing and Wizards of the Coast since 2003. Peter likes cats.

James is an Art Director and Graphic Designer who has been working in the games industry for over 15 years. He's spent time at Wizards of the Coast, Privateer Press, and Paizo Publishing. James has worked on brands such as Magic: the Gathering, MLB, NFL, X-Men, Pathfinder RPG, Warmachine, Hordes and more recently mass-market brands such as Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Pirates of the Caribbean.

James likes metal and this is the only picture we could find of him.

Kendall has been THG's point man on QA for 2 years and isn't showing any signs of letting not quality through. This is the funniest picture we could find of him.

Gaming Industry veteran of 17 years with companies like Microsoft, Sony Online Entertainment, Airtight Games; character animator since the mid 90's. Starting with a strong foundation in traditional, hand drawn animation in the Vancouver BC area, working for multiple studios on cartoons for television before moving into games 15 years ago and still loving it.

How will we use the money?

The Future...

Far be it from us to get ahead of ourselves... but  we're just too excited about what's coming up not to mention some things. In no particular order those are; Our buddy Scott Kurtz, inter-humorist par excellence, is eager to help with the Delve and we're eager to have him Delving. And Rob Heinsoo of table-top gaming fame is on board as well. Another mad scientist in the mix is always welcome.

We won't say anymore lest we anger the Kickernets. But suffice it to say, if you bring the funding, we'll bring the fun. Ding!

Risks and challenges

Video game production is always fraught with peril. Features can balloon, contractors can fail to deliver and scope can creep.

However, we are long time video game production professionals and have experience working diligently to mitigate the aforementioned issues along with the myriad other things that can go wrong with a creative entertainment product. We're confident in our ability to do so and our track record of shipping products speaks for itself.

And finally, if challenges do rear their ugly heads that require communication with our supporters we'll dutifully do that as well.

FAQ

  • We will for sure be doing iPad 2 and higher but aren't sure at this point in development if we can guarantee that it will be available on iPad 1 yet. Stay tuned for development updates! As we get further in the project we will have more information available for you.

    Last updated:
  • We consider ourselves near the end of our Pre-production stage. We have functioning versions of almost all of our game systems and now we're polishing the visuals and user experience while we create and tune our shipping game levels.

    Last updated:
  • A: We’re doing environmental concepting to make sure the final dungeon levels have more visual diversity and color to them and don’t look so brown and purple. We’re adding new enemies to the mix—art, animation, and AI—and playtesting them for balance. We’re adding several new terrain features also: things like sigil puzzles, spawn pits, acid pools, and teleporter hexes, among others. And then we’re playtesting all of that new stuff to make sure it plays nicely together. We’ll be showing some of this progress as it comes in over the course of the Kick.

    Last updated:
  • We will be at PAX Prime 2013 August 30th - September 3rd. You can find us in booth 880 showing Dwarven Delve off to anyone and everyone who will listen.

    Last updated:
  • We're shooting for a December release. If we make some exceptional funding goals we'll decide whether to include them as updates or extend the ship date and communicate that information to our fans asap.

    Last updated:
  • Our goal is for Dwarven Delve to retail for $4.99 on all platforms.

    Last updated:
  • Why, the engine choice of all discerning small indie developers these days, Unity, of course. The toolset and multiple supported platforms make it a very attractive development option. If you're doing what we do, and you're not using Unity, you should strongly consider it.

    Last updated:
  • Obtaining good footage from a mobile device is painful at best. We captured the video on a desktop to simplify the process and bring the project to Kickstarter sooner, but the game is being developed and tested on tablets.

  • Lane has been painting minis for 23 years.
    You can see some of his work here: 
    http://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php…
    He's very excited to work with backers on their minis.

    Last updated:
  • We absolutely are interested in supporting a Linux version. However, we have yet to publish to that platform and we're not going to make any promises til we're able to vet the process and the results. We're a small team and that will have to wait til after our initial release platforms.

    It is however a Unity project so it has a straightforward path to a Linux distribution. In our experience though it's best to be pragmatic and not promise anything til we've got our heads wrapped around it and have been able to play with.
