    Trying to recall the name of the game that came out around the year 2001 (or around that date).

    It is a 3D strategy game, but you can view only from a side. It was about a bunch of gnomes who start digging tunnels and then they start to collect stuff and build new things. Kind of like Settlers, in a way. Later in the game, you meet computer controlled race of gnomes and you start fighting...

    Were they actual gnomes or is that what you thought them as? Where they called gnomes? The creatures I mean. It does sound familiar..

    Well at least I now know the name of the game which had been stuck in my head for so long.
    I thought it was called The Tribes.

    Yes, plus PC Gamer, you could buy the magazine with or without the demos CD. On long trips I used to buy the version with the CD and play on my laptop while in-flight.

    There's like a 1000 games that fit the description... good luck!

    It almost sounds like Dwarf Fortress, but that is top-down.

    Yeah, pretty sure they were gnomes.

    I thing I remember well is that the demo that I played started started on the surface and there was a movie set... Then you went all the way to the other end and started digging tunnels.
