Dwarf Fortress Sells Big on Steam

A tweet from Tanya X. Short of publisher Kitfox Games reveals the long-running grassroots success of Dwarf Fortress extends to the new edition on Steam. In a tweet last week she shared the discussion of whether the game would sell 160,000 copies in its first two months. A new tweet reveals it hit this milestone in the first 24 hours after launching on Tuesday. Here's word:
welp, we hit that in under 24 hours. hooray for Dwarf Fortress fans and hooray for Tarn and Zach's brilliance! (and thanks to you too, Steam algorithm!)

Hope this really pays off for them, they are definitely devs that do it for the passion, not the financial windfalls.

Actually, they're very explicit that this particular version is for financial windfall. Not to get rich, but one of the brothers had a health scare that wiped out a bunch of their wealth, so this is to try to rebuild that and have something to fall back on if it happens again.
So they outsourced this, but to a company they felt would really be able to do it justice.
