'Dorfromantik' Is Coming To Nintendo Switch In Late September

Dorfromantik is a peaceful building strategy and puzzle game where you create a beautiful and ever-growing village landscape by placing tiles.

Players explore a variety of colorful biomes, discover and unlock new tiles to include in future sessions and complete quests to fill their world with life.

With Dorfromantik, you can immerse yourself in a quiet, peaceful world at any time and take a break from everyday life. At the same time, Dorfromantik offers a challenge for those who are looking for one: To beat the highscore, you need to carefully plan and strategically place your tiles.

In Dorfromantik you start with a stack of procedurally generated tiles. One after the other, you draw the top tile of the stack, place it on one available slot and rotate for the best fit. Thereby groups and combinations of landscapes are formed, such as forests, villages or water bodies, and you are rewarded with points depending on how well the tile fits.

On some tiles you will also encounter special objects that give you a quest: For example, the windmill wants to border 6 grain fields, the locomotive wants to be connected to 10 tracks or the deer wants to inhabit a forest with at least 50 trees. Fulfill these quests to get more tiles to continue the expansion of your landscape. The game ends when the tile stack is used up.

As you expand the landscape, you can advance into new, colorful biomes and discover pre-placed game objects that give you long-term tasks. Through these tasks you can unlock new tiles, new biomes and new quests.

Dorfromantik offers options for any style of play! Take a short break from life in quick mode or try to master the game in hard mode. The Custom Mode allows you to create your own rulesets and share them with others, while monthly mode awaits you with a new challenge every month. If you just want to relax and build your own landscape with no limits, try the creative mode!

After the successful full release of Dorfromantik for PC earlier this year, the first adaption of the indie hit will now be released for the Nintendo Switch. The versatility of the Nintendo Switch harmonizes beautifully with Dorfromantik's short games on the go or cozy game evenings on the couch.

As a new addition to the proven gameplay of Dorfromantik comes a completely new cherry blossom themed biome with its unique architecture and scenery to celebrate the Nintendo Switch launch.
