Dicework Games have released a demo for their upcoming PC indie game, Rimelands: Hammer of Thor. Rimelands is a roleplaying game, a lot like many dungeon-crawling board and pen and paper games. It’s a polished product in a genre that is often ignored by larger studios. The setting is a unique blend of steampunk and fantasy elements. It combines old school mechanics with streamlined modern gameplay, offers an intriguing story with an abundance of real-world mythology and great visuals. The original iPhone game received a lot of praise, and the new PC version will not only take it up a notch, but to a whole different level.
The team behind the critically acclaimed iOS game, Rimelands: The Hammer of Thor, have turned to the crowd, in search of support for getting the PC and Mac version of their game ready for the market. Since its launch, the game has a gathered a number of fans on the iOS devices, but now the developers feel it’s time to take the successful game to other platforms.
The PC and Mac version of Rimelands features a total reimagining of the game, an updated and rewritten storyline, new user interface and improved visuals. Additionally, as a new, and previously unannounced feature, they have added an easy-to-use visual level editor to the mix.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
