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.

Difficult yet fun, I think 7 out of 10 is way fair.

They desperately need to spend a few months and graphically overhaul this game. To think it could be so amazing, but I refuse to spend 30 minutes on learning every single little mundane action. I spent 3 days and watched uncounted hours of videos on youtube, understood the game well enough, but in the end it wasn't worth the effort. Absolutely love the concept, but even a tiny work on polish would make this the best game ever.
