Headbutting The Coalface: Oilfurnace

By Quintin Smith on September 6th, 2010.

We few, we grumpy few, we band of assholes.

Remember Bronzemurder? It was a Dwarf Fortress after-action report told in illustrations by New Zealand artist Tim Denee. You don’t? God, is that smell you? Isn’t it a little early to be drinking? Nevermind. The point is he got commissioned by an Australian mag PC PowerPlay to do another one, Oilfurnace, and it’s now available on his blog. Again, in true Dwarf Fortress style it’s a tale of bravery and ingenunity that nevertheless ends horribly. Go read. And, if you like it, go buy a print. You might as well browse Mr. Denee’s Ten Feats of Ernest Hemingway while you’re over there, too.

Can Games Be Art? Dwarf Fortress Says Yes

By Kieron Gillen on April 22nd, 2010.

I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her. I wish I had enough food to eat.

Well, in a literal sense. PCG posted this yesterday, which is a lovely adventure in Dwarf Fortress, illustrated in a highly accessible style by graphic designer Tim Denee. Lovely on just about every level, including being lovely.
