I sure hope this is a 3d Dwarf Fortress! Or at least something close.

Interesting, perhaps it will be like Dungeon Keeper... well, i mean in terms of gameplay and quality

@Twistation: C'mon man. That type of thing is frowned upon here. You've been around long enough to know that.

OT: I fall into the downward spiral that is Dwarf Fortress on occasion so I'm really looking forward to this. The number 1 request to Bay 17 is to bring a competent GUI to the game but they haven't delivered. This looks like (an albiet less complex version of) that request. I'll check it out.

Dungeon Keeper.

I just want Dungeon Keeper again :(

But the cartoon cutout presentation was entertainng.

Agreed with others on getting a Dungeon Keeper vibe off this & if it's like that in the humor/gameplay, I'll definitely give it a try. Still slightly uneasy about this thanks to that lackluster Dungeons game that didn't get it right in the gameplay but looked like it could have been a good DK clone.

So you're building a dwarf... fortress?

Paradox knows their goofy fun, but I'm a bit worried about that kinda tower defense looking overworld map. If they keep most of the focus on dungeon... keeping, count me in.

So Dwarf Fortress with graphics and a story? Not the worst idea, though who knows if this will go as crazy and deep as the text game.

I've always wondered why someone hasn't taken the insanity that is Dwarf Fortress to the next level. Minecraft is close, but lacks autonomous dwarves that subsist on alcohol and regularly go insane and start murdering each other.

when you play the game of dwarves, you win or you die

Dungeon Keeper returns without so much evil. I can't tell if I like this.

Not quite Dwarf Fortress, certainly closer to Dungeon Keeper than DF despite the skin of Dwarves over top of it.

Where are my axes? I will take what is mine, with fire and beards!

@Deathpooky: dwarf fortress has graphics.

i dont think dwarf fortress is going to find a rival for complexity any time soon but i'd be interested to see what other people could do with little parts of the the DF formula

Looks funny. And Paradox doesn't publish bad games.

Posted by Viking_Funeral

Didn't they already try this with Dwarfs?! And didn't we mostly agree that it was mediocre to bad?

Oh, well. Let's see how round 2 does.

Did you see that mage break that spoon? Intense!

Posted by Spoonman671

Well, the trailer was certainly cool.

A Game of Dwarves: Song of Ice and Fire?

The mages win because they have command over xwing starfighters

The gameplay I see in there does not fill me with hope.

I got a pretty good laugh out of that when I saw it. Just make sure not to build any trenches of any kind.

If the underground base building is anything like Evil Genius I am in.

voice actor sounds like the same guy that played Bourbon in Metro 2033 trying to fake a scottish accent.

Posted by dvorak

Yeah this is basically Dwarf Fortress with graphics, and not quite as complex.

Posted by SgtSphynx

Got a Dungeon Keeper vibe from this.

Very much this, that was one of my favourite base building games of the last few years.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

Art looks kinda neat, if this is Dwarf Fortress I'm sold.

I hope so.

Posted by HeavyDuty32

So that was an x-wing, right?

Posted by ArsenalFan

Why do dwarves always have Scottish accents?

Posted by sins_of_mosin

Well that story was ripped straight from Warhammer. 
 
Anyway, I assume it'll be an arcade game.

Fucking wizards.

This looks good (there's a brief gameplay video out too).

Looks a lot like Dungeon Keeper which I am still a huge fan of to this day.

Posted by deSadist

I will buy the next Dwarf based game to NOT have shitty Scottish accents.
