Dwarf Fortress Now Available For Macs

An IMG reader has informed us that Bay 12 Games recently released a Mac version of Slaves To Armok, Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress. The single player fantasy game drops players into a randomly generated persistent world, either in control of a dwarven outpost or in the boots of an adventurer.

More about Dwarven Fortress:

The world is randomly generated with distinct civilizations spanning over 1000 years of history, dozens of towns, hundreds of caves and regions with various wildlife.
The world persists as long as you like, over many games, recording historical events and tracking changes.

Command your dwarves as they search for wealth in the mountain.
- Craft treasures and furniture from many materials and improve these objects with precious metals, jewels and more.
- Defend yourself against attacks from hostile civilizations, the wilderness and the depths.
- Support the nobility as they make demands of your populace.
- Keep your dwarves happy and read their thoughts as they work and relax.
- Z coordinate allows you to dig out fortresses with multiple levels. Build towers or conquer the depths.
- Build floodgates to divert water for farming or to drown your adversaries.

Play an adventurer and explore, quest for glory or seek vengeance.
- Meet adversaries from previous games.
- Recruit people in towns to come with you on your journey.
- Explore without cumbersome plot restrictions.
- Seamlessly wander the world -- 197376 x 197376 squares total -- or travel more rapidly on the region map.
- Accept quests from the town and civilization leaders.
- Retire and meet your old characters. Bring them along on an adventure with a new character or reactivate them and play directly.
- Z coordinate allows you to move seamlessly between dungeon levels and scale structures fighting adversaries above and below.
- The combat model uses skills, body parts, wrestling, charging and dodging between squares, bleeding, pain, nausea, and much more.
Dwarf Fortress is free to download and play. Bay 12 Games accepts donations from those who wish to contribute to the ongoing development of the game.
