Well, i was thinking of something. Like a very large room with holes. And a drawbridge. And levers. And goblins.

Not really  golf, but still better than nothing. Maybe it's pinball instead ?

but how to add less...PREDICTABILITY ?
This is bad gameplay.

I'm currently working out to do such a thing.  I think it's possible by abusing pathing to get the "balls"(goblins) to go "down", and have levers to toggle the "bats" (bridges). Pressure plates set to activate once on weight ensure that any sufficiently large bodypart will increment a score tracker., which is relatively easy as a digital display in raised and lowered bridges. at the top.

I agree with Urist. Steampunk is like Darth Vader winning Holland's Next Top Model. It would be awesome but not something I'd like in this game.
Unfortunately dying involves the amputation of the entire body from the dwarf.

You can't troll those who looks at a game philosophically then questions our own existence

This thread validates my concerns that MonoSCII is the only acceptable way to play DF

Being able to see anything is overrated.

Playing DF generates information; the only way to truly play DF is to not exist, therefore generating zero information in time or space

This person would probably love corin's mystery dungeon, sad that he is no longer with us.
Wait, no. The starting screen tells you which buttons can be used.

In an intrinsic fashion, the subtlety of the morphological constraints of the game irrevocably alter the presented information by predetermined heuristic systems, inevitably leading to the transmission of direct evidence to the user which presents a philosophical problem inasmuch as such fallaciously corrected conclusionary bias allows generation of such a stance as was investigated in the preliminary assessment of the tautological authorial report.

Did that mean anything? I tried real hard to make sure it didn't.

I'm pretty sure you just said, approximately, "By playing the game, you obtain information related to the game."

You succeeded on a level that you didn't even mean to succeed at. I think that's like, success-ception or something.

Well, I'd rather play golf or something, than succeed.

In which case, of course, you'd be succeeding at playing golf. Like some kind of intellectual illiterate.
