Fun Indy Game. Dwarfs?!?

Postby Lightbeard » Mon Jun 13, 2011 11:10 am

A fun little indy game I've recently discovered that is pretty addictive.

It's basically an arcade game where you take on the role of an overseer managing a base and dwarf diggers.

It's mostly about getting a highscore and seeing how long you can last vs things such as Goblins, water, lava, dark shamans, etc.

It's cheap and insanely fun. It even has a downloadable demo (if you have Steam).

Totalbiscuit did a detailed video on it as well

I'm playing the demo atm but I plan on buying it this week.

Ha. So basically, it's Dwarf Fortress with graphics that aren't ASCII.

- A Sergeant in motion outranks an officer who doesn't know what the hell is going on.
- A demolitions specialist at a flat run outranks everybody.

A lot of people have called it a simplier version of Dwarf Fortress (not to say the game is easy)

Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.

Yeah. I didn't think I'd like it and I certainly wouldn't have bought it if there wasn't a demo.

I bought it today and have been playing Endless to see how far I can get.

Slightly off topic, but I figured it was better than starting a new thread.

Anyone else try playing this game:

Bastion is one of the best games I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Short, but just long enough to be enjoyable. The narration is spot on, the music couldnt have set the mood better, the environment is amazing and the combat is exciting.
