It is about time that one of the most magnificent gems of indie game making history takes it's rightful place on IndieDB, the site may now be considered complete. Bravo.

Excellent game!! Don't get fool by the graphics, the game is very resource demanding. My 2,6 ghz c2d is suffocating when playing up to 200 dwarfs...

Actually, it's only processor heavy. It doesn't use anythign else really, well, RAM probably helps too, but the video card doesn't matter in the slightest.

Was not expecting to see this on here. Totally caught off guard that Toady put Dwarf Fortress on Desura, but not complaining. I really hope this helps give him even more exposure. He deserves it. Wonderful Game!

Alpha funding implies there's an end product in the near future. Toady plans to continue Dwarf Fortress development for the rest of his life.

Seriously one of the best, most enjoyable games I have ever played! I will donate once I get my next paycheck :)
