During the open tests held between March and April, nearly 25,000 people played First Dwarf, demonstrating strong anticipation for the adventures of the dwarf Tru and his dragoness companion, Ragna. The game draws players with its diverse gameplay possibilities, combining elements of colony survivals, action RPGs, city builders, and tower defense games.

We’re counting down the days, and the whole team is excitedly awaiting the launch of First Dwarf in Early Access. Both the tests and the demo version have been immensely popular among players, yet this is just a glimpse of what we aim to deliver on June 19th and in further updates. We’re eagerly awaiting feedback from our fans because we want to listen to their opinions and craft our game together with them. We also feel that with the support of the community, we’ll be able to build a title tailored to what players are currently looking for,” said Jakub Wójcik, Star Drifters’ CEO.

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.

Key features of First Dwarf include the ability to control the dwarf Tru, pilot a powerful mech, and fly with Ragna the Dragon, each with their own skills to upgrade. Players will build, optimize, and look after their colonies, upgrade, craft, and discover new structures, technologies, tools, and weapons. Combat involves fighting tainted enemies by engaging in close combat and building defensive turrets and walls in advance, preparing for monster waves and natural disasters. Players can choose to heal tainted animals or purge the island of them, unveiling the hidden secrets of Driftland and learning the truth about Tru’s father’s past. The game offers both single-player and co-op assist modes.
