+ - Dwarf Fortress Gets Biggest Update In Years->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Dwarf Fortress, the epic, ASCII text-based, roguelike citybuilder, just released its biggest update in years. Tje game is notable for its incredible depth, and the new release only extends it. Here are the release notes — they won't make much sense if you don't play it, but they'll give you a sense of how massively complex this game is. It's also worth noting the a team of modders has recently released the Stonesense utility, which renders the game in 3-D from an isometric point of view. "[T]he utility relies on DFHack, a community-made library that reads the game’s memory and can be parsed, thus allowing for additional utilities to render things while bypassing the initial ASCII output.""
