Dwarf Fortress

Out of nowhere, Bay 12 Games has announced that Dwarf Fortress, the procedurally generated madness creator, is coming to Steam. The release date is kind of ambiguous (“time is subjective”) but we do know that it will have graphics and Steam Workshop support for mods. It will retail for $20, though the free version will also continue to exist and be updated.

What is Dwarf Fortress? It’s the inspiration for titles like RimWorld – a living, breathing, procedurally generated world where you manage your own colony of dwarves. Build a fort, mine endlessly, develop your civilization, and watch as it all comes crashing down in the strangest of ways.

Adventurer Mode is worth checking out for those who want to play Dwarf Fortress as a role-playing game. You can also go through Legends Mode and read more about your adventures in the world. Perhaps the best part about the Steam release is that it will include Dwarf Fortress Classic with the traditional ASCII graphics. Check out PC Gamer’s interview with creator Tarn Adams for more information.
