Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Dwerve » Mod Hackathon Contest with $5,000 in Prizes 💵

Hi Warsmiths and soon to be… Modsmiths!

We’ve added Modding to Dwerve so you can customize sprites, animations, and stats for the turrets, enemies, and your favorite blue-haired tinkerer, Dwerve. To celebrate, we’re calling all Modsmiths to forge their finest mods in a week-long Hackathon contest with $5,000 USD worth of prizes. Read the details below and make sure to submit your mod on or before July 6!

💸 What You Can Win!

We’re giving away $5,000 worth of prizes to 20+ winners! Here’s the prize tiers:

  • Top 3 Mod creators each win $1000 USD cash prize
  • Next top 20 Mod creators get $100 USD Steam Gift Card
🔧 How to Enter!

To participate in the Hackathon, create and upload your mod to CurseForge and then upload a short video to YouTube, Twitter, or TikTok introducing your mod to the Dwerve community! Here are a couple of mod ideas to consider:

  • Reskin the current sprites for a turret, enemy, or Dwerve to create a new look
  • Craft a new gameplay experience with an overhaul to turret and enemy stats
  • Forge a new turret with a complete reskin and restat of a current turret or trap

Make sure to tag @HalfHumanGames and #Dwerve for your video upload! The video can be short, even a minute or two. Use it to show off your cool creation to others and let them know where to download it. Add a link to your video on your mod’s CurseForge page and vice versa.

  1. Create and upload a mod to CurseForge on or before July 6
  2. Upload a video introducing your mod to YouTube, Twitter, or TikTok on or before July 6
  3. Your mod’s CurseForge page must include a link to the video
🤯 How We’ll Choose Winners!

While we encourage you to share and promote your mod, this is not a popularity contest. Peter and I will select our favorite mods based on the criteria below. Your mod does not need to meet every single criteria, we encourage you to focus on one or two:

  • Creativity: Did you use the mod tools in a unique way to create a compelling experience?
  • Game design: Did you improve upon or create a brand new gameplay experience?
  • Comedy: Did you make a funny mod that makes players laugh and have fun despite balancing?
  • Aesthetic: Did you create your own beautiful sprite/animations for a turret, enemy, or Dwerve?

Happy crafting, Modsmiths! We look forward to seeing what cool creations you come up with. May the best tinkerers win!
