The most complex PC game gets a tutorial after 16 years | Job Binary

It’s been great to see the graphical version of Dwarf Fortress inch its way towards release. Things we’d take for granted in most games are small thrills for Dwarf Fortress players: nice pixel art and things like mouse support and tabs will make the game easier to play and analyze than the old keyboard-only ASCII interface. Now, wonders, one of the scariest computer games ever made is getting a tutorial. What wild idea will they come up with next?

“Dwarf Fortress holds the title of being one of the most torturous games to learn,” co-creator Zach Adams wrote in a recent Steam update. “There’s a lot going on, even after changing all the ridiculous keyboard commands and replacing the Matrix-like interface with some understandable and awesome pixel art. It still needs something. Something to alleviate the need to go directly to a wiki. Just to understand what’s going on. Answer tutorial of course it is.”
