OverviewOverview

Dorfromantik is a peaceful village-building strategy puzzle game for one player. It's inspired by tile-based board-games like Carcassonne and Tantrix.

Hexagonal tiles are drawn from a random stack and can be placed and rotated on an expanding board to create a growing rural landscape with buildings, fields, forests, lakes and rivers. Each tile is rewarded points for how well it fits against the surrounding ones. As you progress, new tiles and biomes are unlocked and quests can be completed. The idyllic landscape scenery is further enhanced by animated tiles, like windmills and steamboats. One round of the game runs until all the tiles in the stack have been placed on the board.

This colourful game was developed by four game design students from Berlin. It can be played either casually, as a relaxing and calming distraction, or as a challenging puzzle to beat the high-score by planning ahead and strategically placing each tile.
