If you’ve ever heard of Dwarf Fortress, then the tales of hard work being washed away in a matter of minutes is music to your ears. Dwarf Fortress’ theme has always been about how losing is fun, but they never mentioned whether losing should be ugly or not. We’ll resolve this with a healthy dose of modding.
Phoebus’ Graphic set improves the visuals beyond the terrible eye-sore they originally were. Using updated textures, new sprites, tiles and a better color palette, this modification makes the learning curve for Dwarf Fortress appear not as daunting. If you’re interested in a deep, challenging sandbox game that will provide tales of glory and defeat, this is for you. (The game comes packaged with it too!)
