I KNOW ISAAC AND TOMBOM PLAY THIS BUT THIS IS SIMPLY TOO AWESOME OF A GAME. INSPIRED BY THE FREEWARE GAME THREAD, I THOUGHT THIS GAME IS JUST TOO STUNNING TO DESERVE A THREAD OF ITS OWN.
*IF YOU DONT LIKE ASCII GAMES THEN DONT COME HERE WHINING ABOUT THE GRAPHICS*
(the beginning of a fortress. in the middle is a meeting hall where the dwarves are currently taking a break. to the right is a newly built, soon-to-be workshop area, personal quarters to the north and storage area on the bottom.
(CREATING THE WORLD WHEN YOUR PLAYING FIRST TIME MIGHT TAKE A WHILE(1-15 MINS DEPENDING ON YOUR HARDWARE SETUP), THIS IS BECAUSE THE GAME IS ACTUALLY CREATING A _WORLD_ WITH CONTINENTS AND SEAS FOR YOU TO PLAY IN, SO BE PATIENT,YOULL ONLY NEED TO DO THIS ONCE.)
DWARF FORTRESS IS A ROGUELIKE GAME WITH 2 MODES OF PLAY, ILL FOCUS ON THE ONE I THINK IS FUNNIER IN THIS POST.
Dwarf Fortress is a gamefeaturing two modes of play, a distinct, randomly-generated world (complete with terrain, wildlife and legends), gruesome combat mechanics and vicious hordes of elephants.
THIS GAME FOCUSES ON DWARVES TRYING TO BUILD UP A FORTRESS INSIDE A MOUNTAIN. INITIALLY YOULL HAVE 7 DWARVES TO BEGIN WITH AND YOU GET TO SUIT THEM WITH NECESSARY ITEMS BEFORE EMBARKING.
(A screen showing up one of the 3 pages of tasks/professions the dwarves can perform.)
THE GAME ITSELF HAS MANY AWESOME ELEMENTS MAKING IT FEEL LIKE A REAL WORLD. THE DWARVES ARE EACH UNIQUE, HAVING FEARS AND DREAMS AND OWN PSYCHOLOGIES
THERE IS ENGINEERING, YOU CAN BUILD TRAPS AND BRIDGES AND EVEN STEAM-WEAPON OR TORTURE CHAMBERS >:D
THE GAME IS REALLY HARD AT FIRST , FIRST TIME I PLAYED I HAD TO ASK A FRIEND WHERE THE MOUNTAIN WAS(LOL). BUT AFTER THE INITIAL ASCII SHOCK YOULL FIND THAT THIS GAME IS PURE AND ACTUALLY _EASY_ TO PLAY DESPITE THE COMPEXITY OF THE ENGINE
(building up some furniture)
AND IF THIS WASNT ENOUGH AWESOME FOR A SINGLE GAME, YOU CAN PLAY A ADVENTURE MODE, TAKING UP A SINGLE DWARF TO WANDER AROUND THE WORLD, YOU CAN EVEN VISIT CITIES YOU'VE BUILT ON YOUR PREVIOUS GAMES! SOME WHICH ARE WORKING AND SOME. . . WHICH DIDNT END WELL AND HAVE BECOME INHABITED BY ORCS AND OTHER FILTH, TRAPS, BUILT BY YOUR ANCESTORS MIGHT BE ON EVERY STEP ON THESE FORTRESSES.
(A wrestling match against a cyclop is not going well. . . )
THERE IS A THIRD MODE TOO WHICH FOCUSES ON YOUR DWARVES GOING ON A RECLAMATION JOURNEY TO GET SOME ANCESTORIAL FORTRESS YOU'VE BUILT ON A PREVIOUS GAME BACK FROM THE HOLDS OF GOBLINS AND OTHER MONSTERS.
FIGHTING BOTH HUNGER, THE WILDLIFE OUTSIDE, THE MONSTERS INSIDE AND THEMSELVES, BUILDING UP A FORTRESS IS NOT AN EASY TASK.
