The Dwarves is an upcoming tactical fantasy role-playing game (RPG) being developed by KING Art Games and co-published with THQ Nordic. The game is based on the first book of the series "The Dwarves" by Markus Heitz. Mark is involved in the project as a consultant and may write a quest or two. The Dwarves was successfully funded on Kickstarter on 8 October 2015 and will be released on 1 December 2016 on PC, Mac, Linux (Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The protagonist is Tungdil Bolofar who gathers a group of up to 12 companions around him over time; each of them with their own back-story and unique skills in combat. Previous to each battle, players assemble a group of up to four heroes, who then fight hundreds of enemies simultaneously. Players will travel through "Girdlegard" on a world map that contains dozens of battle fields and places waiting to be discovered.
