Getting Short: Dwarf Fortress 0.31.01 Out

By Kieron Gillen on April 2nd, 2010 at 1:00 pm.

This is one of my favourite single RPS-headers, for the record.

Time to sit down and start singing about it going gold. Or, at least, the next version, which is as close as we get in the world of the ever-epic short-chap-simulation Dwarf Fortress. A list of mirrors can be found here and the full list of changes here. In short, lots of simulation improvement – including, intriguingly, souls which store an individuals mental attributes and skills. Also, fatness for tubby dwarves and – ooh – a massive expansion to the underground. Be a dwarf! Dig! Dig! Anyway, as I said, get from here, see tutorials from the last version here (i.e. obsolete, but enough to get the jist) and generally get stuck in. But Remember: initial releases tend to be a bit twitchy. It’s also interesting to read their April report, saying what they’re up to, including the amount of donations they get for hard-stats indie-number-crunchers.
