Dwarf Fortress is a single-player fantasy game. You can control a dwarven outpost or an adventurer in a randomly generated, persistent world. The world is randomly generated with distinct civilizations spanning over 1000 years of detailed history, dozens of towns, hundreds of caves and regions with various wildlife. Command your dwarves as they search for wealth in the mountain. Play an adventurer and explore, quest for glory or seek vengeance. Extended ASCII character set rendered in 16 colors (including black) as well as 8 background colors (including black). Although Dwarf Fortress is still in a work in progress, many features have already been implemented. Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.
With the month's end comes the completion of the framework for Release 1.

The Bay 12 Games Report, July 1st, 2011
With the month's end comes the completion of the framework for Release 1. All that remains is finishing market squares in town, then the final phase begins. This process of "Fun-ification" will last until the game deserves to be seen in public. Just think: all the catacombs, dungeons, cities and night creatures -- you will not be able to sleep... undisturbed.
Congratulations to all those who contributed!
Fun with Numbers
Thanks to everybody that supported us last month. Remember that there's a meetup in Redding, California on July 16th! Forum thread here.
Reward reminder: If you support us, you can pick either a Story Reward or a Crayon/Colored Pencil Art Reward. A Story Reward is basically a mini-Threetoe story (examples) and a Crayon Art Reward is a crudely drawn scene which we sketch, color in, and mail to you, anywhere in the world (assuming your contribution covers postage, which is about a dollar almost wherever you are). We take personal requests for either reward as well, he he he. You can also be listed among the Bay 12 Champions.
