Arachnophobe alert: There’s at least one big spider in this game. It’s pink. Screenshot below.

The Dwarf Run combines classic RPG mixed with point-and-click adventuring that includes inventory-based puzzles. 

With three companions, go on an expedition to an underworld temple where you’ll encounter strange beings, join a rebellion, investigate conspiracies, defeat demons, become arena champions and travel into space. How’s that for getting around?

The game, which features a linear story, offers approximately 15 hours of gameplay per adventure. Players may choose cinematic, top-down or 3rd-person POV. There are 100 enemy types, 140 unique items and many twists and turns.

The Dwarf Run is available for PC, Mac and Linux on Steam. The game is discounted 15% until October 28th.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
