Dwarfs!? and Demo Released

Tripwire Interactive announces the release of Dwarfs!? on Steam, where the arcade action/strategy game is on sale for 10% until next week. The release is accompanied by a new trailer and a playable demo, and here's word on the game:
Dwarfs!? offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulty levels and game modes to play around in! In this game, your own Dwarfs double as your greatest asset and worst threat. They explore for you, they mine for you and they fight for you - but if you don't keep an eye on them, they'll do what they do best: die for you and take everyone else with them! Nothing in Dwarfs!? is free, though. To force your 'loyal workers' to do your bidding, you must cough up the gold. The same gold that might save your beard when someone, somewhere disturbs a Spider Queen.

Yeah. It's got good core concept - it's got a little bit of a digging Warcraft thing going but it's pretty tedious. They could definitely work on this and make something pretty cool if they try to implement more of a DF sort of thang. It feels more like a well-done free browser based game.

I played through the demo. Eh, it just feels very bare. There's just not all that much substance to it. It's a shame, too, because the mechanics of it are fairly entertaining, they just don't do anything with it.

This looks like Dwarf Fortress for mental invalids.

Like he said ... mental invalids. On the off chance we are allowed to like new indie games though, anyone play this and have an opinion they'd like to share?

To be fair, Dwarf Fortress is for giant brains with tiny bodies attached to them.

Do you have a single fact to back that up?

That looked like a bunch of angry ants running around.
