I've been working on this a little while and just put out the first video, figured it was a good time to tell people it existed. UPDATE: Kickstarter page! All the good info is here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tynansylvester/rimworld At the most basic level, this is Dwarf Fortress in space. There are a lot of differences in the details. -"Random" events like weather and attacks aren't random; they're created by a configurable AI storyteller along the same lines as the Left 4 Dead AI Director -Guns -You can take people prisoner and recruit them. This is the main way you grow the colony -Nobody is a professional settler; you're all crashlanding victims. So you get to build a colony with, like, an accountant, an airline pilot, and a housewife. I like to think this adds flavor -There's a shallow research tree -Fire is just as brokenly unstoppable as in DF! (currently) Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV6wyeZ7458 And the game's page: rimworldgame.com Love to hear any thoughts or suggestions you have on it!
