The Unexpected Quest is officially arriving in Nintendo Switch tomorrow, January 23. This adventure game offers management and strategy elements inspired by classics in the likes of The Settlers and Warcraft 3. The game had originally been released back in November 2020.

In the game, players take control of a group of dwarves. The group has been shipwrecked to a beautiful landscape but with danger lurking around. To bring order to the land, players need to build structures, craft items, and battle enemies. It’s important to also help those in need and hunt for treasure.

One of the main features of the game is the ability to Explore. Lots of strange creatures can be encountered, and some are willing to help players while others may need help. However, there may be others that have something deadly in mind. Over the course of the game, players can explore different villages, marvel at snow-capped mountains, and even foul-smelling swamps.

It’s not just creatures as there are also NPCs that need aid with their problems. They may hand out quests as well for players to complete. Of course, rewards are always provided for additional motivation.

Since there are dangerous creatures in the land, it’s important to be able to Fight. Get the upper hand by hiring more experienced soldiers and upgrading their weapons and armor. Don’t rely too much on weapons though since you can access spells. Potions and magic items are also available to handle any situation.

Although exploring and fighting are key tasks, don’t forget to Gather Resources. As long as it’s not bolted on the floor, go ahead and collect it. After all, it’s not possible to build structures without having the right materials. In addition, be sure to always have food stocked. Even though dwarves generally won’t mind about the work too much, they’re not going to work with an empty stomach. Then again, who does?

Speaking of Build, be sure to make the right ones first. Sawmills, for instance, give out building materials as mills provide food. It’s not just buildings since players can build other structures like docks for swamps or bridges for rivers.

What do you think? Willing to give the game a chance? If you can’t wait for the release, there’s still time to pre-order the game here.
