Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

scii

Brings me back!

I used to develop (an attempt for) games like these back in the days with GWbasic and after that Turbo Pascal. After the discovery of VGA 13h and SVGA mode tools I luckily had the chance to make something a little more pleasant for the eye :p
Can't say anything came even close to the quality of this stuff, but it sure as hell was a fun time.

Dwarf Fortress is one of the best games ever made.

This comes from a former professional games journalist.

Cheers!
