Original Dwarf Fortress pre-release movies?
« on: May 03, 2011, 04:08:17 am »

Does anyone have the old movies that Toady released before Dwarf Fortress itself came out?  Humancamps, the one where Toady Kills NorndarnÚrn, things like that, the ones of Toady playing the game which covered the basic 2D gameplay over the course of several seasons?

This is the only one I've seen, and I guess that's not one of the pre-release ones.

This one is from the Z-axis release. I think he means the movies before the public release of DF in 2006.

I don't have them on this computer, and I couldn't find them on the server, but they are probably rotting off on a CD someplace, maybe.  I can see what turns up.

So the only video we have of Toady playing DF is him showing us how to methodically drown animals?

no, there were quite a handfull of short videos like tragedy mule in the long void between 2d and 3d versions, as new features were being developed and demonstrated.  but pre-release videos would be long before that time, and much before Markavian put up the map archive and added video functionality.

Heck, I wasn't even here when 2D mode had the undead invasions.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that anyone who remembers that, they  were probably a B12 fan before DF was even announced, which could easily be something like 10 years?  I'm not really sure.

I think the undead invasions never made it to the public release. I started playing just a couple months later and they weren't in the game anymore.

based on our registration dates, i guess it could only be like five years, then.

So who did the early pre-alpha releases go to, then?  Armok 1 and LCS community members, i suppose?

Maybe real life friends of Toady.

The public release was June or July 2006, I think. I started playing around August, and registrated a month later.

Doesn't look like they are on any of the 2005 CDs.  I'll see if anything else turns up.
