Dragons: Dawn of New Riders is an action-adventure game based on a license of a popular series of animated films titled How to Train Your Dragon. The title was developed by Climax Studios and published by Outright Games.


The story told in Dragons: Dawn of New Riders begins when the island of Havenholme is attacked by the sinister Eira. Two of the main characters, Scribbler, who suffers from amnesia, and Patch, a unique chimeragon dragon who wields mysterious powers, can face him. Not only do we try to prevent Eira from capturing Patch, but we also try to learn of Scribbler's past and develop his friendship with Patch.


In Dragons: Dawn of New Riders we alternately control Scribbler and his dragon Patch. Watching the action from a top-down perspective, we travel through different locations, fight with encountered opponents (both dragon hunters and other, sometimes powerful reptiles stand in our way), as well as solve environmental puzzles and free the captured dragons. As we progress, we unlock Patch's hidden skills, so we can face more and more challenges over time.

In the game there is a place both for locations known from the movie original (such as Valka's Mountain), as well as for completely new places, like Blood Briar Island. There are also characters known from the silver screen, such as Hiccup, Astrid and the dragon Gobber.

Technical aspects

Dragons: Dawn of New Riders features colourful three-dimensional visuals in a style reminiscent of the movie original.
