For all you n00bs who can’t handle the original ascii art or installing tile-sets, the most intricate game of all time is coming to Steam and getting native artwork. The original ascii, with all the mods and tile-sets, will always remain free and updated.
If you like Rimworld, Prison Architect, Minecraft, Terraria, etc., you need to try Dwarf Fortress-which inspired them all, and which none have ever come close to matching. The Tarn brothers have continually updated this game and lived solely off donations. They are a breath of fresh air in the current toxic gaming climate of early access, loot boxes, season passes, platinum editions, games as live services, blah blah blah blah.
