Dwarf Fortress

Dwarf Fortress

Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress (Dwarf Fortress) is an ASCII game which includes both a roguelike adventure mode, and the more popular Dwarf Fortress Mode, which focuses on the creation and survival of a small dwarven settlement.

The game has a very steep learning curve, partly due to its ASCII graphics, but also due to the fact that it is an extremely complex game.
