The iconic ASCII sim ‘Dwarf Fortress’ will be released on Steam and Itch on December 6th with significant updates
It’s taken a long time, but the iconic civilization management game Dwarf Fortress is finally available on Steam and Itch.io. It will be available for $30 in both stores on December 6th. While it may appear to be a costly price for a game that has already been around for 16 years and is available for free elsewhere, the current version has some significant improvements.
For one thing, you won’t have to deal with Dwarf Fortress’s notoriously crude graphics any longer. The ASCII visuals were replaced with a pixel art tileset. New music and sound effects, a redesigned user interface and menus, a tutorial for newbies, and other quality-of-life enhancements are also included. All of these features are intended to make the game more friendly.
