Dwellink: War of the Nine

A Pokémon-inspired souls-like creature collection game set in a mythical and photo-realistic fantasy world

Nine different worlds to explore

The world of Kohara consists of nine different dimensions/worlds. Explore lush forests, desert ruins, icy fields, scenic lakes, romantic villages, cities in the clouds and even the underworld itself.

Collect, train and catch over 100 different Dwellers

The monsters roaming around in the nine worlds are called Dweller. Those can vary from animal-like creatures to angles and demons and even straight up gods.

Pokémon meets souls-like

Train your Dweller and unlock new powerful skills as their level and stats grow. You will need all the strength you can get to get through all the hostile environments since healing is only available at certain spots and will respawn the wild enemies.

The long-awaitedcreature collection adventure for gamers 16+

Dwellink replaces little electric rodents and cute-looking caterpillars with fire-breathing demons and blood-thirsty monsters. Healing in Dwellink is limited to a souls-like checkpoint system, which intensifies the games difficulty. Furthermore, every Dweller has a unique ability in the overworld that will help you even outside of the battles.

Explore Nine unique worlds

The world of Kohara consists of 9 different dimensions/worlds. Explore lush forests, desert ruins, icy fields, scenic lakes, romantic villages, cities in the clouds and even the underworld itself. 

Holy Capital

The Holy Capital is a big city located in the heart of the Skyworld. This place in the clouds is ruled by angles, phoenixes and other divine beings.

Earth

The Earth is the dimension located in the center of Koharas universe. It has a central-european vibe and is the birthplace of the humans.

Vinor

Vinor is A nord-african/east-european desert island with a few oases. Vinor is ruled by the Sigil Rulers and only has a few small villages.

Dwellers vary from animal-like creatures to angels, demons and even straight up gods!

The different Dwellers come in a variety of elemental types, which are usually determined by the habitat they’re living in. Different types give access to different abilities, strengths, and weaknesses.

 

Our new and innovative battle system

Every Sigil Ruler can only have one Dweller of a certain type in its party. For example, there is only one slot for an ice-type Dweller. So, if you want to have two Ice-type Dweller like #004 Pexonovos (Demon/Ice) and Sedna (Ice) you can only have one of them in your party, except you put Pexonovos in the Demon slot, in which case you can have both (but can’t have another Demon). The different Team slots can also be enhanced via slot-boosters, so it is crucial to plan which Dweller to put in what slot. When fighting, be sure to make good use of the different buffs, de-buffs, and status effects to get through the difficult fights. A Dweller can suffer from up to 4 different status effects at the same time, making even the most ferocious Dweller easy to defeat.
