What is special about Bay 12
« on: Today at 12:17:41 am »

Dwarf Fortress is a game I only dabbled in. I don't even have a PC that could run it right now. But that is kind of why I am here.

Wether you log in from a phone or school PC or wherever, one hobby you can always keep up with is forum games.

I started my forum gaming on GameFAQs which has a forum for every game published. And for a time it was a great place to learn to make them, until the moderator staff began to crack down more on them.

I can't really tell the story of how I found Bay 12, because I honestly don't remember. But I sure am glad I did. And while my peers remind me it's not that big of a deal...I am super proud to run the official forum game list, since 2017 infact which is longer than anyone before me.

I have long wondered why the glove fits so well. Dwarf Fortress and forum games. Tonight a lightbulb turned on above my head, and for the first time I had an answer that satisfied me.

Dwarf Fortress, unlike many of the yearly AAA throw away titles, is an ongoing project. The theme is building, but it is also in and of itself the spirit of continuous improvement. And in a way that is what the forum game community is all about. You can always grow as a player and a host and designer. We grow together and we grow individually.
