I don't understand why you'd give away so many codes Nomet. I can see 10 or 15 but that is a ton. 

Hopefully you've made enough off the game that those codes don't matter. I played the demo and the game was worth a few bucks, after your show of generosity I'll have to go out and buy it.

Yes we have made a profit on it so we are thankfully not living on the streets begging for food.  We are  Working on a big update for the game that will be free for all who already owns the game when we release it. We think it's important to show gratitude to everyone that supports our studio and games :).

Any plans for your next game yet?  I'm curious to see what else you guys might make.  :)

Well, I think you are crazy, but I will be buying your game now. The demo was fun enough and the good will pushed me over the edge.

Well, it is a top down micromanagement game that gives you indirect control of a small population, and your primary objective is the survival of this population by handling problems such as food supplies, water levels, and invaders. It also has noticeably simplistic graphics, so much so that they are hard to read if you are not accustom to such games.

Now there are several games I could be describing here, DF being one of them. I'm sure that this game took other influences aswell! But the fact that this game adds another layer of similarities by making it a population of dwarves, and has what is almost a trademark of DF, magma, it makes me wonder maybe the developers were trying to ride on Toady's coat tails.

I know this is old but I just had to comment! This is horrible, I bet you haven't even played the demo when you said this. There are no food supplies, the art style is simple because it's an ARCADE GAME! It's not some fancy smancy game with bloom or cell shading 3D effects, it's simplistic. Water is blue because water is blue, it can be murky but it's blue. If dwarfs and magma was to be always referred to DF and everyone criticized a new game just because it has these then what is the point of making a new game? Give these guys a break, they made a small neat game that is fun to play when you only have 5 minutes to spare or just want to shut down communication and be alone for a bit.
Anyways sorry I quoted a old post but it was driving me crazy.

I gotta say, played the demo and thought it was fun enough for a purchase.  Nice casual game.

I'm late, but why did you dump all these game codes on us in that massive act of generosity?

Bought this game a while back and I consider it well worth the money.  Add in the generosity of giving that many codes out for free and you've got yourselves someone who'll buy pretty much anything you guys put out now.

Is there anywhere I can read up on this update, or is it yet to be officially announced?

They are probably already all used. Buy the game, it's worth it and it costs nothing, AND it supports two good guys.

That's a bit of a lie, isn't it?

Depends on how much money you have. $10 is a week's eating for me.

We felt like showing some respect here cause there was a lot of flame on our forum regarding Dwarfs!? being a "rip off clone using the fame of dwarfs fortress". We where hoping to show that we are nice guys who just love to make games. And we credited DF as something that inspired us not something we considered we ripped off.

Happy that you like the game :)

We are soon going to announce the things we are working on. We where thinking of adding a video dev dairy to talk about the game development and why we make the decisions we make so all who is interested can see the development. But yes the new updates are not officially announced yet. The reason being that we don't want to promise something that we can't deliver. We want to know that we can keep the promises we give.
