Dwarfs!? Tunnels Its Way To Release, Demo


Tripwire's lo-fi mining game, Dwarfs!?, has arrived on Steam. It has a demo, and harkens backs to games like Diggers and other 2D tunnelers. It might not look like much from that screenshot there, but it seems to escalate pretty spectacularly, and also to have its heart in the right place. It manges to reference both Dwarf Fortress and Lemmings in a single promotional blurb. If it really is the arcade version of Dwarf Fortress then I suspect the internet is beginning to eat itself, but that's probably inevitable anyway. Eventually we'll just end up with some much reciprocity that the internet will turn inside out and vanish in a puff of meme.

Also, I don't trust anyone who says they don't like digging. Or mining. We all like it. Or else. Trailer below.
