GUI (Graphical User Interface)Edit


The Graphical User Interface is divided into two parts: the Upper and Lower.

The upper part of the GUI display several different parts: -Maximum amount of Storage. This tells your current limit for resources. -Current Electricity. This shows the current amount of available electricity you have. -Total amount of Happiness. It displays how much happiness your settlement currently has. -Current Happiness Trend. It shows if you are gaining more happiness than you are losing. -Owned amount of food. The total amount of food that you currently have. Alerts when you have a low amount of food. -Total amount of owned dwarves and the maximum allowed amount. -Dwarf-indicators and buttons. Every dwarf-class have a unique button which show several different things. They display the amount of dwarves you currently control in that class and it displays if one or more of those dwarves are starving or getting attacked.

The lower part of the GUI also display several different parts: -Order-buttons. These are your main methods of controlling your dwarves. -Build menu-button. Clicking on this opens up the Build menu from which you can buy props and objects. -Research-button. It leads to the Tech-tree where you can spend research points and unlock techs that will benefit you in many different ways. -Quest log-button. Here you can see more details on all your available quests. -Speech log-button. Here all the important messages are saved for you to read if you missed something. -Game speed-buttons. You can pause the game, play it in normal speed and play it in a high speed. -Hemfort-button. This opens up the Hemfort-window, where you can order more dwarves, upgrade your spawning pool to increase your maximum limit to how many dwarves you can have and trade resources. -Menu-button. With this button you open up the menu, where you can access game-options, save the game, return to the world map or return to the main menu. -Level-slider. By dragging the slider you can go up and down in the vertical levels. -Hide UI-button. With this button you can turn off such things as the name and hp bars over the dwarves.

World MapEdit

Here the Graphical User Interface is a bit more scarce.

-Influence-button. This opens the Influence-window where you can see how much influence you have and unlock Influence-techs. -Equipment-button. The Inventory-window shows the equipment the Prince has gotten, and any other special items. -Lessons-button. Here you can read more about the game and what you need to know to get the full experience from the game.

Camera NavigationEdit


These are the controls to use while playing in a settlement.

You use either your Keyboard or Mouse to look around.

If you want to look around, you can Move the Camera by pressing W, A, S or D or the Arrow-keys. You can also move the Mouse to the edges of the screen.

Press Q or E to Rotate the camera to see every angle. You can also Hold the Scroll wheel on your mouse and then move it to Rotate the camera.

Press Z or X to Zoom In and Out to get a close look at things, or not. You can also scroll the Scroll wheel on your mouse to Zoom In and Out.

Press R or F to move up and down in Layers. The underground is big! You will need to be able to go up and down as well.

World MapEdit

These are the controls to use while playing in the world map.

You use either your Keyboard or Mouse to look around.

If you want to look around, you can Move the Camera by pressing W, A, S or D or the Arrow-keys. You can also move the Mouse to the edges of the screen.

Press Z or X to Zoom In and Out to get a close look at things, or not. You can also scroll the Scroll wheel on your mouse to Zoom In and Out.

If you click on a Country or Location with the Mouse then the camera will center on that location and provide you with additional information. Make sure to always know where you are travelling.


When controlling your very own Dwarven clan, there are five different Orders you can give. These Orders give you control over what the Dwarves should do, or over built Objects and the like.

Dig OrderEdit

The Dig Order is perhaps the most essential tool you will ever have with a Dwarven Clan. With the Dig Order you can dig out Blocks underground to create corridors or new rooms. It is your main tool to explore and to gather resources.

With the Dig Order selected you can click on Blocks that have not been dug out yet. You can see which blocks that have been dug out or not by seeing if that space is filled with something or not. If the block is not dug out yet, then it will simply be black. By holding the left mouse-button down you can drag-select the blocks you wish to be dug.

That Block will now be selected and a Digger-Dwarf will move there to dig it out. Just make sure that the Dwarf can reach the selected Block!

If you click on a selected Block, then the Block will become deselected and the Digger-Dwarves will ignore it.

Remember that you can dig Downwards and Upwards as well! This way you can move in Layers, which is good since you will probably not find everything on a single Layer. Just remember to Build Ladders or Stairs so that your Dwarves can move between the Layers.

That block that has been dug out will remain gone, so be mindful not to dig any blocks you wish to remain.

When you dig downwards, if there is an object on the square that you just removed, it will fall down onto the next tile.

Interact OrderEdit

The Interact Order is used when you want want your Dwarves to Interact with an Object. Sometimes you even Interact directly with an Object yourself.

If you use the Interact Order on a Door then the Door will switch between Locked and Unlocked, potentially cutting off the way.

If you use the Interact Order on any Tablet you come across, then a Dwarf will approach it and read the written message on it. Much valuable information can be found like this.

There are other things, such as Levers and Keys that you can Interact with. Experiment!

Move OrderEdit

The Move Order is used when you are not satisfied with where an Object is located. If you select the Move Order and then Click on an Object then you will pick it up and be able to place it to any new location you wish.

You need to own the Object you wish to move.

Sell OrderEdit

The Sell Order is used when you do not wish to keep a built Object. If you use the Sell Order on a built Object, then the Object is destroyed and you will receive some of the resources it cost to build it. Yes, that is right. You will not get the full amount back. So be careful.

If you use the Sell Order on objects in any Rooms you happen to find in the Underground then the objects will be destroyed and you will get resources from them. You do not have to clear the room from any enemies before you can sell the items in it.

Teleport OrderEdit

The Teleport Order is similar to the Move Order, but transports Dwarves instead of Objects. When you have the Teleport Order selected you can lef-click on any Dwarf. That Dwarf will then be picked up into the Teleporter and disappear from the world. When you right-click somewhere in the world again you will drop the Dwarf back again to where you clicked.

It is possible to carry 5 Dwarves at the same time.

When you have Teleported a Dwarf somewhere, the Teleport Order enters a cooldown and needs to be recharged before you are able to use it again. The more Dwarves you teleported at the same time, the longer the cooldown gets and the longer you have to wait until you are able to use the Teleport Order again.

There are some areas which you will be unable to Teleport to. I have heard that there exist a device that makes it impossible to Teleport close to it. These devices are called Teleport Disruptors. You will need to destroy them before you are able to Teleport to that area.
