The Bay 12 Games Report, January 1st 2023

Mission Status

  Dwarf Fortress is a wild success it seems, but it is all an illusion without you.  By the fact that you have started reading the second sentence of this report, you are more than likely invested in the success of this project.  You could have contributed directly.  You could merely have told a friend, or taught a younger sibling how to play.  None of this could have happened without you.  Be confident in the fact that none of this was possible without the support of the people that helped us out from the beginning and those that helped us along these amazing 20 years, by far the best in my life.

Oh yeah!  There's still time to be special!  Support us directly and you still can make a measurable difference!  We need the coffee money to make it through this last month.  Thatís it!  We win... and itís your fault!

Fun with Numbers

  Thanks to everybody that helped out in December!  The launch went great - we won't have all the specific numbers until mid-February when everything has been processed through Valve and Kitfox, but the game sold almost half a million copies in December, which is awesome.

In January we're going to begin the exciting new era of having more than one programmer on the project!  I don't have any idea how long it will take to ramp things up etc., but this should eventually help with bug fixes, ports, and more.  This at least frees up more of my time for features, and maybe we'll also figure out how to involve multiple people with those as well.

More bug fixes and quality of life stuff are coming, and arena is coming.  Then I'll probably be working on adventure mode while more patches come in, but I don't expect to be able to start on adventure mode this month while we're figuring all of this out and arena mode is still to come.
