DWARF FORTRESS

Post by Sleksa » 25 Jun 2007, 22:13

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*

Image
(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.

Image
(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

Image
(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.

Image
(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.


IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLES OR ANYTHING, YOU CAN PM ME ON THE LOBBY, NICK IS [WarC]Sleksa , I'VE ALSO MADE UP A CHANNEL CALLED #DF IN THE LOBBY, COME THERE IF YOU GOT QUESTIONS OR NEED HELP AND ILL TRY TO ANSWER <3

you don't even know what the fuck you are talking about. You haven't played DF, and you think just because you like nethack and its old you must be awesome.

AT THE FIRST YEAR YOU SHOULD TRY HOARDING AS MUCH FOOD AS YOU CAN.

I SUGGEST YOU READ THESE WHILE PLAYING SINCE THE GAME SEEMS REALLY COMPLEX AT START.
