Dwarven Fortress

Post by Shalterra on 2010-12-29, 01:25

This little ASCII gem I found buried amongst thousands of ...terrible...indie games is beyond words in depth and scope.
(Before I go on. I would like to note that there is and advertisment for a vibrator on top of the screen... Hm.)
I can't even describe the game. It's and RTS/city-sim/RPG/Adventure/Going-To-Kill-You-At-Every-Turn/Roguelike...
http://df.magmawiki.com/index.php/Main_Page
It isn't pretty, but the simplicity has it's charms, that almost make up for a learning curve so steep it puts Eve to shame...

Forgot to say. Due to this ungodly learning curve. It has an extensive wiki for everyone Very Happy

As quoted on the topic of why Pokemon is so popular despite being the same game for 15 years.
"Because it's Pokemon. It's drugs for the brain. It's porn for the eyes. It's a conglomeration all your hopes and dreams, sprinkled with unimaginable wonder. A game such as this has no need for superfluous additions or changes. It continues, and will continue, to entrance delight fans of all ages.

That's why." - DragonAura1010-Gamefaqs

I've heard of Dwarven Fortrees (or dorf-fort as it is sometimes called). I even tried playing it once, but found the aforementioned learning curve overwhelming. Still, any game where cats are the ultimate evil I can get behind.

It's...complex. Read the wiki some to find out more Very Happy I don't know what to say about it. xD
James, the wiki clears up ALOT as well.
