If you haven’t played this little gem yet, give it a try! This eccentric Dungeon Keeper meets Roguelike has kept me entertained for the last few days. Putting all his weight behind the game mechanics and totally ignoring the graphics (yay to him!), the author of Dwarf fortress has created a compelling place for your little dwarf colony to prosper, and eventually die horrible (but entertaining) deaths.
It’s given me a coding itch I have to scratch. Given that Dwarf Fortress isn’t open source I’ll have to put my effort in a separate creation; Elder Brain. more about it later.
