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!)

Looked at the game, I'm not knocking it or the devs, congrats to them, but the game just does not look all that good or interesting.
this game is the granddaddy of all world simulation style games. if you like automation/simulation random world generating style mechanics in games you have played, the inspiration probably came from it.

Yeah they had to be eyeing that $2.5 BILLION that Notch got from Microsoft for Minecraft like, "Hmm...."
