An amazing illustrated account of Dwarf Fortress.
Let me add that I have gotten partly through the detailed tutorial, may never actually play this game, but I still enjoy the stories it generates…and this is beautifully illustrated as well.

Well, it is how I make a living. I try to play as many as I can without burning out.
You know, you can go see Hal Robins (Dr Kleiner) in San Francisco. He performs in nightclubs as Dr. Howl. I’ll see if I can find some links for upcoming shows and post them here. If you liked that Tenderloin article about Fritz Leiber, I’m happy to say that “Horrible Imaginings,” the story I wrote about, is finally in print again: Fritz Leiber, Selected Stories, edited by Jonathan Strahan and Charlie Brown, is just out from Nightshade; it’s a cornerstone story in the collection.
I don’t require stories of all games. Enjoying the world counts for a lot, and sometimes that’s purely the result of atmosphere. Right now I’m just getting into Monster Hunter Tri, for instance; there’s really no story to speak of. Cool cats, big monsters, obscurely rewarding grinding.
Hal used to stand on the deck of the ship that drove around Burning Man, reciting Ancient Mariner while people dined. I think the ship hit and killed someone and the drive/sails may have stopped.
did you come up with g-man? what inspired him?
Hi, I can’t answer Valve related questions on my personal website. Sorry.
