Minecraft - First Person Dwarf Fortress.... Kinda
Since the forum seems to be into playing some indie games, I figured I would bring Minecraft
to everyone's attention. I've been playing the shit out of the paid version, but the free version is pretty good too. (If you buy the game now, it's half price.)
Basically, you're dropped with nothing in a randomly generated world, and you can only explore and hit things. You can hit everything in the game. Most of them will turn into an inventory item of themselves. You can combine items into machines, different items, etc. Monsters spawn in very dark areas and they will kill you. The goal is to survive and build things.
This should give you a good idea of the game play, at least early on.
And this is an example of a player's server.
The big shocker is, this is an ALPHA
. Unless they're just lying and the game is almost done in it's current state, this is going to be an amazing project to watch. The game is extremely fleshed out, supports a fuck ton of people at once, and hasn't given me a single issue in the hours that I've played it.
