The deepest, most intricate simulation of a world that's ever been created. The legendary Dwarf Fortress is now on Steam. Build a fortress and try to help your dwarves survive, OR adventure as a single hero against a deeply generated world.
Dwarf Fortress coming to Steam and itch.io, free version always updated and available | Bay 12 Games on Patreon
Official Post from Bay 12 Games: Hey everybody! We mentioned a big announcement on the development log, and here it is: Dwarf Fortress is coming to Steam and itch with a new tile set, and generally enhanced graphics and audio. We'll continue updating and releasing the free ASCII version on...
This is all very strange now. So yes, this is happening. I'm ... parted on this. The reasons for doing it is sound (in short, healthcare, and they're Americans so yeah), and given their track record I am extremely sure they will donate superflous money as they say (because Tarn Adams is one weird dude). I'm not a big fan of Steam though, mostly because I live an largely offline life and Steam is not exactly designed for that sort of thing ("here, lets que 20GB of updates on the games for which you'vechecked the "check for updates only when launched" box and no you can't play them until you've updated them and we don't care about the "metered connection" nonsense even Windows cares about have fun except you can't, you worthless piece of humanity you OH AND THE SUMMER SALE IS ON PLZ MONEY I NEED IT BAD MAN GIVE IT TO ME WHY WON'T YOU GIVEME MYMONEYFCKKKYYOOOUUUUUUUU *knife fight ensues*"). Anyway.
It will bring "graphics", "sound" and "improved UI" to the game. Graphics is just another word for "not having played DF enough", and the UI is fine up to a hundred dorfs or so (when scrolling through names becomes a chore).
In short, I have no idea what to make of this.
