Looks like one of those badass games like Armageddon.

I looked it up and looking at the screen shots a thought cloud appeared above my head with "WTF?" in it.

I started playing this a few days ago. I'm still learning the ropes but it's surprisingly simple to get the hang of if you have a good tutorial. First time I booted up I was like 'Fuck this, what the hell?', but I actually picked it up in no time and given 15 minutes the game really isn't so daunting. Plus it works fine on my stone age work PC!

I've been using this tutorial:

The Complete and Utter Newby Tutorial for Dwarf Fortress – Part 1: “WTF?” After Action Reporter

It's for an older build of the game, which is linked in the article, but it's a good starting point as it has the tutorial map with it and also a graphics pack or something to make everything clearer, it's not all ASCII

The little Ive played, it is frustrating!
I chop down some trees, collect berries and what not. Built some breweries but I always end up with too little food, even though I plant seeds. My poor alcoholic dwarfs always end up starving to death

Been checking this game out a bit and the thing that strikes me is how amazng in depth and ambitious it is. If this game had....A UI and more modern game it would a really amazing game.

The thing that I like the most is how each world you create generates thousands of years of history and how the characters all interact.

Towns is basically the same thing with friendlier graphics, but last time I played it (When it was released on Steam last year) it was still in early development and far away from DF's level. Worth keeping an eye on it though, see if it matches up in the end. I should see what it's like now in fact.

Down load the 'Lazy Newb Pack'. It has various mods, some different tile sets which make the game easier to decypher visually but best of all is the dwarf therapist which makes organizing jobs for your dwarves a million times easier.
