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!)

Ditto. I need a free sampler to see if I will like it.

It's not quite the same, but you can always get the ASCII version for free (there are also tilesets to spruce it up). It's not too hard to extrapolate from that how graphics and a more approachable UI might change it. If you want a "demo" of the new iteration there's always cs.rin.ru of course.
