A Look Back at Spacebase DF-9

by Josh Bycer on 03/06/18 10:07:00 am

The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

Each month, I like to focus on a game that earned a negative reputation to see if the hate was warranted. For this video, I wanted to talk about Spacebase DF-9. The Dwarf Fortress game from Double Fine that almost cost the company its reputation among gamers thanks to them completely missing the point of early access development.
