Short Version: Alpha 20

Long Version: So what’s new now we have grown out of our formative and awkward teenage years? Quite a lot. Now this just might be a personal bias but SoR is shaping out to be pretty damn nice.


Metaphorically Alpha 20 is a coming of age for us as much of the game is slowly leaving that “WTF am I playing.” stage to an “Oh I get it now.” state. Fog of war and in-game tutorial are just one of the many highlights of of Alpha 20.


  • Added Tooltips.
  • Added Tutorial Slideshow.
  • Added Fog of War.
  • Added New GUI for time of day and other options.
  • Added New traditional intro menu buttons.
  • Added Cobblestone, dirt and wood blocks are now craftable.
  • Fixed Flying cows used to caused a crash.

I'm new to games on desura so don't hate me, but how do I update or does desura do that automatically once they've cleared the update for release? And I must say this is a very interresting game and play style. Never really got into dwarf fortress myself so this is new for me heheh

Once the update is ready the game will have some sort of circle icon near its status, that indicates an update, there you are prompted with a pop-up window with the changelog and the options to update or not.

For the most recent releases, the Linux build has been a stand-alone build. You can download that from Desura.com in a web browser once you log in(and have the game purchased).

This is just something to keep in mind. The Windows release should just tell you an update is ready.
