“Hyper Hippo is thrilled to launch the first idle game on Netflix in 15 languages ​​in over 190 countries around the world,” Hyper Hippo Entertainment founder Lance Priebe said in a press release. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to collaborate with a team that clearly loves video games as much as we do and supports our vision to entertain and inspire gamers everywhere.”

The mobile game sees players take on a group of “mighty dwarven heroes” through an “endless series of deadly challenges”.

The game was developed by the same Kelowna tech entrepreneur who co-created Club Penguin, an incredibly popular game that was eventually sold to the Walt Disney Company.

“Dungeon Dwarves is a fun and addictive idle game that anyone can play, but with room for mastery. Your dwarves never stop fighting, so there are always shiny rewards waiting for you when you Log in. Play for as little or as much as you like, with each session promising compelling progress, deadly battles, dwarven antics, and heaps of treasure,” reads the press release.

The game is already available in 15 languages ​​and 18 more languages ​​will be added in the future.

The game is available for free in app stores and can also be found on Netflix Games, taking its reach to almost every country in the world.

The game is available on the App Store, Google Play and Netflix Games.
