Dorfromantik is a building strategy and puzzle game where players place tiles and build village landscapes. The gameplay can be considered as rather relaxing with players starting with a stack of procedurally-generated tiles. One after the other, players draw the top tile of the stack and place it on one available slot. Through this process, everyone gets to form landscapes like forests, villages, or even water bodies. Players are rewarded with points based on how well the tiles fit. Those looking for a challenge should do their best to beat the high score.

Features of the game are:

  • Building endless and beautiful landscapes.
  • A unique mix of strategy and puzzle mechanics.
  • Relaxing and calming gameplay.
  • Idyllic village scenery.
  • Strategic placement to beat the high score.
  • High replay value - every session is different.
  • Many unlockable tiles and biomes.
  • Original Artstyle with hand-painted board game feel.
