    Whale Rock Games has put together quite a doozy for hardcore RTS fans. It’s definitely not fitting for a casual strategy gamer like me, or those who prefer fewer moving parts in their RTSes. But even with the ragequit difficulty, it’s hard to deny that the game mechanics themselves are as solid and fair as the environments are gorgeous.

    We are the Dwarves is a Challenging strategic experience, but sometimes you feel restricted in your actions.

    Challenging but funny game with interesting concept and a few issues uses dwarf race in an unusual way.

    Dwarves and astronauts, a strange and unique combination for a potentially original exponent of the RTS’ genre. Despite the interesting premise We Are the Dwarves has too many flaws, both technical and gameplay-wise to overtake the sufficiency.

    Where We are the Dwarves fails to deliver is mission balance, plain and simple.

    Whale Rock games have done a great job of making an engaging, challenging and rewarding game (if not the deepest in story-terms) but the difficulty makes it pretty prohibitive for most gamers.

    I was thinking long and hard if I should ignore this game or trash it. But in the end it cost me too much time and too much nerves. It starts well: The presentation reminds you of Blizzard and I like the idea of slow paced progress. But when it comes to balance or rather: lack thereof it shows you how far Whale Rock Games actually is from Blizzard.

    A great game that deserves a place in your games library!

It has a truly unique setting and challenging game-play that makes you think twice before taking any action. There is no feeling that you have been cheated somehow after numerous failed attempts, but it rather pushes you to discover new ways of achieving your goals. All your characters represent unique classes that add a lot to your strategy arsenal. Along with unusual atmosphere it multiplies expectations.

    Guys from Whale Rock Games did a great job. Thank you!

Don't trust these newbies, who tells you that this game is too difficult. It's a logical game, it must be difficult. But after few hours you can handle easily any group of enemies and really hard encounters are rare. On contrary, I found some big battles rather enjoyable especially after winning it in a last hit before dying. Expand

It isThis game has an interesting mix of stealth and combat mechanics, with a heavy emphasis on using the environment to your advantage. It is often quite challenging, but never seems unfair, since every encounter has, at least, one clever solution. Unique setting, great art and ambient music together create an awesome atmosphere of underground exploration and adventure.
    Overall, despite a few minor issues here and there – a must-have for the fans of real-time tactics games.

    I like the idea of this game to let dwarves to be main character and rts style game system. but I don't recommend this game because there areI like the idea of this game to let dwarves to be main character and rts style game system. but I don't recommend this game because there are some flaws in control part.

    1. control set is contrary to general game nowadays. For example LMB is giving command and RMB is rotate camera. Although it's not a big problem and acceptable. but I think it's better to follow main stream control set to let player play this game more easily.
    2. RMB cancel skill function doesn't work sometimes. have to click RMB several times to cancel skill.
    3. Sometimes can't click/select enemy even mouse cursor on it.

    Actually there're still some detail problem in this game. but I think to make a immediate and reliable control is the most basic and important thing for this game right now. This game is quite creative. I hope they can make a new game with this idea but more complete in the future.
