I'm not sure if anyone checked their homepage today but... jeeze. I have never seen such an elaborate apology over a perceived slight. Not that this isn't an incredibly cool thing to do Nomet, because it is, but I didn't think there were really any hard feelings between Bay12 and Dwarfs!? to begin with. There are just a couple folks on this forum who cry bloody murder whenever they see another game with dwarfs or...digging. Because Toady invented those things.

Anyway, it doesn't change the fact that this is an awesome thing to do. Going to try out the game right now.

Screeny of what I'm talking about for posterity.

I'm actually worried about what Kinseti is saying. Are we so bad reputation wise as a community that an indie dev had to try to appease the more loud members with free stuff?

That's not a very good feeling to have.

Well, I feel a little less bad that they did a similar thing for Facebook and another place before us. That was nice of them too :) I'm hoping more people will try this game now, I certainly have (my first game was fun because it ended with half of my dwarves dead).

Nah, it's obviously that Toady invented games. And air, don't forget the air!  :P

I'm kind worried now too, after reading the previous posts that might have caused this.

I believe there is one post saying it's a rip off, and the rest are telling the OP that he is wrong, along with other DF players.

Game's pretty fun. Just a few thoughts, I can imagine giant antlions would be a terrible surprise for dwarves to randomly face as a boss character, and would have to kill them off in a manner similar to how ants take on antlions (overwhelming force is best). Having random events occur like sinkholes would also hamper some arcade play once in awhile (dug out tiles all of a sudden become pits), running into ant colonies (or fire ant colonies) would also be a rather unpleasant surprise to dig into as well. Another boss idea could also be a sandworm/giant earthworm.

I dunno. Just got through the tutorial, so I don't know how many of those already are implemented or not.

Sandworms would be interesting if the dwarves were digging in a desert...

Well, with the earthworms, they would be particularly nasty beasts since they can eat both rock and dirt blocks as they move and can compromise some blocking of water or lava caves, however, their weakness is that they can only keep traveling in un-dug dirt tiles, meaning you'll have to trap them in exposed tiles before you can kill them off. Sandworms could be similar, except they're actively hunting other dwarves and are invisible until it's too late and can (exclusively) travel dug out tiles. Unlike earthworms though, they can't go through solidified rock walls.

Sandworms would be an especially nasty surprise since you are not notified about exposing a cave with them, so you'll have to keep a close eye on opening new caves as you play, and treat them with equal levels of paranoia as you would with lava or water. I think they would require at least 5 warriors or a few lvl 3< warriors to take them on.

I want to give the developer a hug. Now this is actually making me tempted to buy the game, after that show of generosity.

How good is Dwarfs!? I've been looking at it from time to time, but never watched any videos of it.
