Post Castle Story
Castle Story is an upcoming indie game developed by Sauropod Studios, 3 guys somewhere in Montreal.
Have a video:

Description shamelessly ripped from Kickstarter:

Their webpage.

I remember finding out about that a few months ago. It seems like a 3D version of Dwarf Fortress. The sky island part is what I like the best. Building bridges to get to other areas would be fun.

I think it's looks OK, but I would only be really interested if it WAS 3D dorf fort. Currently you just have dudes build stuff and fight stuff, doesn't look that great.

It's the exploration that interests me. Dwarf Fortress limited me to a restrained section of land, for understandable reasons. Generating more content than needed would lag the game. But I was never able to send a group of dwarves out on an expedition to far away lands.

That is a planned feature however, Harzipan. ToadyOne just hasn't gotten around to implementing it yet. He is making dwarf fortress one major feature at a time instead of halfassedly implementing all his dream features. Check out his goal and power goal log.

I haven't checked out the development page in awhile. Was it recently added?

To be honest, I am not sure what development branch he is on at the moment. Last time I checked they were doing diseases and randomly generated demons or something.

I hope there'll be sapping.
Exploding enemy castles from below will be so fun.

If this gets non-LAN multiplayer support, I'm going to be happy. We could stage massive sieges directed at each other.

Just contributed $25, I am ok with this.
Now if only cubeworld would also let me give them money, I'd be happy.
