    That looks terrible and looks nothing like Dwarf Fortress.

    No duh, it has graphics.

    The game's blurb mentions Dwarf Fortress on steam, and the videos do suggest that kind of game-play, in a very simplistic format.

    Dwarf Fortress has graphics. This game is not even close to the game mechanics. It is a casual game that stole the general look of Dwarf Fortress and made it stupid.

    So it's like Dwarf Fortress with none of the interesting stuff, and they want people to spend money on it when Dwarf Fortress is free. Um... no thanks.

    That is one of the most persistent ear worms I have ever heard.

    Game looks bad though. More casual than Bejewled and for extremely derpy Minecraft players or DF noobs who couldn't get past entry level.

    Wait, I don't think there is any level but the first in Minecraft or Dwarf Fortress, unless you're holding infomation back. :p

    And yeah, the game looks like a cheap knockoff of a free game. Makes no sense to buy it.

    DF used to only be X and Y. Second major release Toady added the Z levels.

    I'm not sure why anyone would try to sell this game by mentionning Dwarf Fortress. It obviously has a completely different target audience. It says nothing about the quality of this game (since its target audience may like it I dunno), but it makes me wanna call some people really bad at marketing. How stupid can you be. God I need more faces to put my palm in.

    Incredibly, if you even consider buying a game that looks this bad.

    And now i can't get it running.

    It doesn't even run.

    Just says it's had a problem and shuts down ten minutes later.

    Any help?

    There should be a support forum for it on Steam. Try there!

    NVM, got it working.

    Guys, this is the best dwarf game ever [second only to dwarf fortress in terms of FUN.] You guys should try it before saying "I hate it"!

    I think there are three. Five if you count Terraria and Minecraft.

    I say three because there's one called Delve Deeper that looks Dwarfs!? and Terraria were spliced hastily together.
