In Diggles, you manage a tribe of dwarves ("wiggles") that dig deep below the earth to find Fenris, the fiery dog, on behalf of Odin. The action is seen from a side view, comparable to an ant farm. Most goals can be reached with peaceful means, but more warlike players can force their cuddly dwarves into war.

Infogrames had ordered an "aggressive" campaign which should have The Settlers as main target. So the ad company created an advertisement, on which a Wiggle having sex with a The Settlers box could be seen. This was intended by Infogrames, but they cancelled it in the last minute because they "didn't want the Settlers box to be THAT recognizable" - the artist hadn't done any retouche, but had used a scanned box. In the end, they didn't use the picture at all.


This seems to be a family game with funny little people but as the developers wanted their game to be more "adult", they put in a tribe of weed-smoking dwarves, the "hippies".
