Dwarf Fortress introduces graphics feature, allows players to toggle them on or off

Dwarf Fortress employed ASCII art (essentially simply colourful text symbols) as a placeholder before publishing on Steam with accurate visuals. Due to the game’s lengthy development, many fans fell in love with the ASCII graphics style and actually despised the animated tiles that emerged with the game’s complete release. Thankfully, developer Bay 12 Games is listening to its customers and has issued a new update that enables players to select between modern(ish) visuals and vintage ASCII art in the graphics settings through a new toggle.
