History

Rimelands is the game that Dicework's founders first set out to make, although the simpler puzzle game named Diceworks was the first title. The idea for the company was always to make role-playing games and especially ones playable on mobile devices. The game mechanics are designed to be very easy to learn, but also complex enough to ensure lots of interesting gameplay. The setting is an alternative future with the premise that in the 19th century an ice age began, lasting a thousand years.
