“We at Pineleaf have been humbled by the level of support DwarfHeim has received from our community,” added Kleven, on the Supporter Pass DLC. “We’ve had people asking how they can further support us and DwarfHeim. So instead of asking for donations we created the Supporter Pass – a small token of gratitude for people’s generosity, we created in-game items for your units and buildings so other people can see you are a member of a very elite club.”
