Dwarfs has gone free to play. Can you digg it… yes you can.
I own the paid version of Dwarfs and have had many fun hours watching the little fellows do everything but what I have told them to do.
Now it seems that the vertically challenged little chaps have dug their way out of the boxed product and are now available to everybody, though there is some additional paid content for hardcore cave dwellers. …in game micro-transactions….. “nooooo!” I hear you cry. But hey! do you really think free to play is free?
Well actually yes it sort of is, …the developers have sort of been rather nice
The Free-2-Play version of Dwarfs!? You can download the game and play the core game in Arcade mode, plus all the Tutorials and the Challenge modes completely free, forever. No charges, no subscriptions – just free. If you like those modes and want more, you can either pick the modes that you feel like playing and buy those individually – or just buy the whole pack to unlock everything. You only need to pay for the expansion packs that are all reasonably priced at around 2.50 There are several pack to choose from.
Skirmish Pack for Dwarfs adds in the following 3 extra modes for you to play:
Sandbox – here is your chance to create your own caves and populate them with whatever bad guys you feel like! Rush Mode – digger dwarfs will continuously spawn, without pause. And you can only let 200 of them die – just how long can you last in this mode> And how big will your score get!? Dark Mode – if the standard Arcade mode is not enough of a challenge for you (or you just want life for your Dwarfs to be a little bit more scary) then play this mode. In this mode, the unexplored sections of the map are ALL dark – nothing is marked for you. Send your dwarfs forth to explore and collect gold and loot. Or die. Or both, of course!
The Difficulty Pack for Dwarfs!? If you are REAL Dwarfs-lover, then the Easy and Normal difficulty levels in the Arcade mode just won’t be enough for you. You will need more difficulty! So, this add-on is for you – it adds in the following extra difficulty levels (the 5, 15, 30 and 60 minute versions) for you to play in Arcade mode: Hardcore – more enemies, they move faster – and so does the lava! Tedi Hardcore – named for the coder half of Power of 2. Hardcore wasn’t hard enough for him, so he made it EVEN more difficult!
The Endless Mode Pack for Dwarfs!? This one is for all those Dwarfs-lovers who just don’t get enough time with their Dwarfs. If you have played the 5-minute game, the 15-minute game, the 30-minute game & the 60-minute game and still need more time – this is the pack for you. This will open up the Endless mode, which is, well… Endless. No time limits. Just play as long as you can! The challenge is no longer to see how big a score you can get in the time – it is just how big a score can you get!
The Summer Carnival,is a bit of simple fun, throwing axes at a bunch of goblins. What more can they say!? it’s also the cheapest DLC at just over a euro.
Base Defend Pack. Yes Dwarfs in towers? Well, this is the Dwarfish take on it. You create the maze for the enemies to follow, from up to four enemy spawn points. Then build towers to destroy the enemy minions as they attack through your maze. And the only limits are your maze and tower-building skills. No time limits. No wave limits. How long can you hold out… ?
The core game is always FREE! You buy the add-on packs once and can play them with no restrictions, for ever after!
The free to play version can be found here on the Steam store

A sharp drop in the CPI of Android games, combined with continued rise of iOS games, has seen Apple’s storefront turning into the more expensive of the two to markets, indicated by new figures from Fiksu.
Examiner Glen Kiladis says that this is the first occasion when Google’s CPI has been lower in the past year.
“After an unusual December month that saw costs down across the board, Android costs continued to fall in January, while iOS costs reversed course,” Kiladis tells GamesIndustry.biz.
“Fiksu’s Cost Per Install (CPI) Index, which measures the cost per app install directly attributed to advertising, showed Android games costs in January were down 18 per cent over last month, coming in at $0.98, the first time in the last 12 months that Android costs fell below the $1.00 mark. iOS games CPI for the month of January meanwhile was $1.13, marking a 41 per cent increase from December and the first time in the last year that iOS games costs were higher than Android games costs.
Online multiplayer games have been popular for a long time. But in only a few short years, the MMO market has changed dramatically in terms of revenue, player preferences and addressable audience. Overall, the total MMO category is on track to generate $11 billion in annual revenues by the end of this year, representing roughly 21% of the worldwide digital games market. By 2017, this number is forecast to grow to $13 billion. And so it can be no surprise that small and large publishers alike are trying to claim their share of this thriving market.
The success of MOBA titles indicates a subtle but important shift in the way people like to play online. Offering the same fast paced action as first-person shooter games, MOBAs have quickly become one of the most popular game genres worldwide, growing their share of the overall MMO category from 16% to 24% in just the last year.
free-to-play games offer high-quality game play that is also accessible. Consequently, we’ve seen a spectacular adoption by gamer audiences in markets like Brazil, Russia and Turkey. But Asia remains the biggest market for free-to-play MMOs: with $4.2 billion in revenues, it looms over North America ($3.1B) and Europe ($2.1B), two markets traditionally central to any successful publishing strategy.
The European Union are about to add their own
micro-transaction to your next game.
It is most likely that Steam, Origin, Uplay, Netflix, Spotify, Amazon & others will need to adhere to the new European Union legislation takes effect in January 2015.
For those companies who have an entity in Luxembourg (EA, Valve, European headquarters) where the taxes are 3% or even lower due to a tax agreement this might not happen.
For the others. From January 2015 if you purchase something from Europe; ie: France, Amazon, Netflix, Apple, Google, Spotify, etc will need to pay 25% tax, which gives them a lower profit margin and thereby a reason to set higher pricing even though the EU is already around 20% more expensive than the US when buying online.
The following services seem to be confirmed as expecting to raise their prices:
Publisher Deep Silver has released the free-to-play Dead Island: Epidemic on Steam,
Dead Island: Epidemic is a multiplayer action hack & slash arena where players duke it out over supply points using an arsenal of crafted weaponry, a bevy of devastating powers, and good old-fashioned teamwork. And yeah, we’ve got zombies too – so there’s that..
As its name would suggest, Dead Island: Epidemic is a spin-off of Deep Silver’s Dead Island franchise. Instead of a first-person action game, Epidemic drops players into a multiplayer online battle arena MOBA populated by the same walking dead that make up the supporting cast of the core Dead Island series.
It’s You Versus Them, Or You Versus Them Versus Them Versus Them
