Customization is at the heart of Forgotten Mines, with a vast array of character classes and equipment available.

The extensive selection of weapons, armor, and artifacts allows players to tailor their team to their preferred playstyle.

Forgotten Mines is ready to hit Steam on July 23rd, 2024, for PC. Below is an overview, screens, and release date trailer.


A fantasy tactical roguelite RPG. Small in scale, grand in depth, replayability, and challenge.

One millennium has passed since an excavation found the gates of hell in the mines of Dorvgrad, and the under-Earth became glutted with monsters. As their leader, seek revenge with the united might of the dwarven clans, and return the Forgotten Mines to the Dwarven Kingdom, the rightful keeper.

Reclaim Your Lost Mines

With limited turns and the threat posed by over 50 enemy types and bosses, you must learn to adapt to unpredictable situations in each journey through the vast mine network. Think smart, take risks, and develop strategies for the next challenging run.

Customize Your Warriors

Mighty axe-wielders. Agile rogues with rapid daggers. Wise mages harnessing the arcane. These are just three of dozens of unique and specialized warrior classes to unlock and put to the test in the brutal underworld. Experiment with different combinations of warriors in your quest to assemble the perfect team for the perfect run.

Class selection is just the tip of the iceberg. Delve deeper into customization with a vast selection of equipment to unlock and use to modify your warriors. Weapons, armor, accessories, artifacts; each unique piece of gear can be swapped in and out to give your warriors distinct attributes and bonuses. As the dwarven leader, fine-tuning and preparing your fearsome team ahead of each run is essential if the correct heads are to roll.

A Punishing Descent

Dwarves don’t go down without a fight.

With powerful foes, dynamically changing environments, and few turns to enact revenge, your quest to reclaim the mines is built to challenge and punish. Your will to persevere is sure to be tested, but with strategic thinking, team-tinkering, and tactical finesse, the thrill and rewards of success are always within reach.

Hardened dwarven leaders can push themselves even further with the unlockable Descent Mode, bringing merciless modifiers to each run that will test even the best of the best.
