Channel Version Published

Dwarf Fortress world simulator.

Dwarf Fortress Classic is an ASCII-based single-player fantasy game by Bay 12 Games. You can control a dwarven outpost or an adventurer in a randomly generated, persistent world.

This is an unofficial snap, which redistributes the original binaries without modification.

Major Updates:

  • 04/02/2020 (v0.47.01) Updated the launcher to allow opening the game in either '2D Mode' or 'Text Mode'. In the event that [PRINT MODE:2D] has been set in '~/snap/dwarffortress/current/data/init/init.txt', the game will launch as normal except also launching a companion terminal (this may be safely ignored and will close with the game). If [PRINT MODE:TEXT] has been set in the above file, the game will play directly within the terminal instead of opening a separate window. This is in response to https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/dwarf-fortress-snap-cannot-handle-text-mode-if-started-from-application-menu.
