Back Story - The sudden appearance of the Forma on the planet has forced the Dwarven race to unite against the up rise. The surprise attack from the Forma has bestowed heavy losses on all towns and so the Alliance has sent fighters to all major towns, cities and other key locations on the planet to defend against the attacks and thin the ranks of the Forma

The attacks become more hostile and begin to aim at key cities on Formika. The player must make an important decision that changes the forward path of the story. Only one City can be saved, Malkrak or Arhid. Before the alliance can launch an attack against the protagonists, an all out surprise attack of, consisting of massive amounts of Forma is launched on Formika’sCaptial, Bofkrak. The dwarves must fight off the Queen Forma as she rapidly spawns Forma of all design at the Giant fortress. • The queen falls but only one of the two evils behind the chaos is found. How did Gildurget away?
Technical Consideration - This game will be primarily designed around a PC platform build. With the success of the Unreal Engine and the UDK implementation. - This game would not be suitable for handheld consoles or smartphones due to the peripheral needs of the game (Keyboard, mouse, multikey control pad etc). although UDK does offer some mobile device platform, the spec for this title would be too high for smartphones and handheld consoles like the Nintendo DS or current PSP.
Characters Dwarves- The inhabients of Formika are Dwarves. Short creatures with advanced technology recently discovered and given to a select number of New-Tech commanders
Characters DwarvesPlayer01The voiceless commander, “Player01”,is a veteran from the Arhid War. Although his action record from the war is brief, fighting in only 2 battles, Battle for Corwell and operation phantom strike, the weight of his responsibilities as a new-tech commander is great. He is seen as a superior fighter and respected by those in authority and by politicians. However, to other new-tech commanders he is seen as a rookie and some believe that his involvement in the defence of Formika is both folly and dangerous.
Characters DwarvesVeteranWith a prestigious military history, VETERAN is one of the greatest fighters on Formika. She is well respected by military leaders and comrades. Those that do not respect her, fear her, as her sometimes aggressive bad attitude has been known to end conversations with violence and threat of death. She is a no nonsense, hard talking fighter that takes a lot of flak for being a woman, but she is quick to put them in their place. Eventually, she becomes friends with Player01 and aids him voluntarily. Although she is enthusiastic about battle, her sometimes reckless decisions make her vulnerable to planned attacks
