Welcome to The Golden Hasweg: A Dwarven Tale, a little game I wrote in my
spare time. At the moment the game has no real goal and no winning condition.
All you could do is managing a dwarven community. You can let your dwarfs
dig mountains, cut trees, construct buildings and produce furniture.
Although the game runs very well the current version is marked as unstable.
This file helps you to install and run the game.
You need a Java Runtime Environment, at least Version 1.6. If you not sure,
open a terminal and type "java -version". You can download a JRE from:
I tested the game with Sun JDK on Windows XP and Sun JDK and
OpenJDK on Ubuntu Linux 11.4.
Just unzip the downloaded file to a directory of your choice. On UNIX
like operating systems start ./theGoldenHasweg.sh; on Windows start
There is a little tutorial inside the game. See Help>First Steps. It is not
complete, but maybe it gives you an idea of how to use the user interface.
