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!)
