A dedicated renewal for an already-legendary video game, the 2022 release of Dwarf Fortress brings it to a level where the casually interested can finally dive in and Strike the Earth!100IGN
Dwarf Fortress is a very difficult, edgy game, but it is also an essential experience, a true celebration of the hidden potential of the videogame medium, which you will not find in any other
A truly masterful fantasy simulation.91GameStar
A worthy revision of the legendary settlement sim. Slightly less impenetrable, just as engrossing.84PC Gamer
The steam release may have a few rough edges that need work, but everything from the original has been drastically improved upon and is a joy to lose at.80Gfinity
Very good game. I enjoyed playing this game a lot. I strongly recommend this.90apokalipto
Great game. With incredible possibilities. Pixel art sprites from steam version are great. Some systems are bit confusing, but it is normal for game of such kind and possibilities. Real masterpiece.100angmarec
Incredible rich, complex and involving sandbox/simulation game that got me instantly hooked!100danielpsilva
One of the most ingenious games of all time, but a little complicated. Anyway I had a lot of fun.90Yasimani
Best game of 2022 and the past decade. If you played the ASCII version support the devs. If you haven’t played the steam version you should!100JranZu

Dwarf Fortress is a brilliant game, but it will make you work to find that out.0Kotaku
Man the graphics are some of the worst ever…looks like a 1980 game AVGN would rage at. And its too complex IDK what is going on.0Fatmandu
I don’t understand how can be fun something so complicated, complex, huge and overwhelming.0stesproject
Unnecessarily complicated and overwhelming, takes too long to figure out to truly be fun. More time consuming than anything, without making much progress whatsoever.0KrillerBomb
