Dwarf Fortress

Post by Midnight_Carnival » April 18th, 2018, 8:30 pm

This game looks fascinating, immersive and really well made.
There is a lot of detail and well, a lot...
mainly just a lot.

But...
I can't figure it out.
I mean I have watched tutorial videos on youtube, etc and I still can't figure it out.

Is it unfair to call this game byzantine?

Any players out there want to fill me in since I don't have an IQ of over 200 or 5 years of time to study this game.

:shock:
...apparenly we can't go with it or something.

What not to understand ? You spend ages making your fortress and then it gets destroyed...

Playing Wesnoth since 2010, still there is so much left to play

Hm, right. In the newer versions there was a ton of improvements. And yeah, not as good as bfw in many ways, mainly because no MP.
