Old DF threadDwarf Fortress
is a single-player fantasy game. You can control a dwarven outpost or an adventurer in a randomly generated, persistent world. Created by the brothers Adams: Toady One and ThreeToe over at Bay12 Games
, Dwarf Fortress is one of the games that inspired the popular hits like Minecraft, Terraria, Rimworld, Prison Architect etc.
Today the game is available in a new premium version over at:https://store.steampowered.com/app/975370/Dwarf_Fortress/https://kitfoxgames.itch.io/dwarf-fortress
Published by Kitfox Games, the premium version features a full amazing soundtrack and ambience, as well as a huge detailed tileset created by Ironhand, Neoriceisgood, Caroart, Meph and yours truly. And on Steam - Steam Workshop integration!
The bay12games.com version remains free and will feature all the GUI improvements of the premium version, while keeping the classic ASCII display. But supporting the Adams brothers in their now 20-year-old endeavour to create the most complex fantasy world simulation game ever is appreciated. You can also support them directly at the Bay12 website.
Previous PA DF threads:
The release of the new version is today, expect a lot to change. The game will now feature a basic in-game tutorial to help you start, but other than that, be on a look out for new content. The mechanics stay the same, but the way you do things will change a lot, what with the mouse UI and such. Utilities like DFHack and its derivatives (like Dwarf Therapist) will also not work until they're updated.
I'll try to update the OP with new stuff as it emerges. Strike the Earth!
