About time!
Dwarf Fortress is rts/simcity/rpg/roguelike game in which you control a band of dwarves building up a colony in the wilderness, in case you didn't know. In DF learning curve is vertical and game mechanisms are incredibly detailed. Dwarf Fortress had major influence on Minecraft, just to describe what the game is about.

There will be a few bug fix releases during the next few days.

Warning: the game is too hardcore for graphics whores!
Here is how the game looks. http://lparchive.org/Dwarf-Fortress-Boatmurdered/Update%202-20/bigmap_1b.png

If you're interested in this game I suggest you to read fan made lets play diary on an old version of the game. It's a good read and you get good idea about DF.

That's right. DF is all about creative ways to lose. burn them all in magma, die of hunger, get slaughtered by a honey badger etc.

It's ton of fun if you don't mind the learning curve which is like driving into a concrete wall 100km per hour.

Sort of. I've been playing for two years and I haven't gone into the more complex stuff like pump stacks used to pump magma from the depths to the surface

I learned to not judge a game before playing it. You should do the same.

Best Roguelike games. But if you want some serious game; play Dungeon Crawl; Stone Soup(Which has graphics mode and text mode).

Yea this game is very good, I have played it before. Just use a graphic pack if you can't play it with the default graphic (I can't)

That's not how that...
and...

...

It's not -MADE- in ASCII. That's... silly. It's made in either C or C++, and it doesn't run in cmd (It used to, I think it MIGHT still support it), it has its own window with the SDL framework(? Sorry, I'm a Java guy).
It is better to fail and then succeed than to succeed in the first place IMG:http://i420.photobucket.com/albums/pp281/L31ch3/Userbars/Strandedgamerub.png
