Good to see you back here again!
Thank you. I don't know if I'm really "back" or not, but I am at least, like I said...checking in.
DG has been posting a little more frequently on the forum which is an improvement!
I take that to mean that he's making the occassional appearance, but not actively developing? Hmm. How's morale? Lots of enthusiam I see, but is anything actually getting done? Some casual browsing of the new forum reveals a lot of the same discussion going on now as when I last visited six or so months ago.
Is Dwarf Fortress good?
Dwarf Fortress is excellent, but it is its own unique thing. It's not really a roguelike. What Moria is to Diablo, Dwarf Fortress is to Dungeon Keeper. But with one of the most heinous user interfaces ever made. And lava. Your mileage may vary
