The game mentioned here is Dwarf Fortress – a name that is probably not strange to many gamers. Developed as freeware since 2002 but it was not until 2006 that the first version of Dwarf Fortress was released and many people were surprised to learn that the game was created by only two people. is Adams and his brother Zach. Even the money to implement the project also came from donations from the online community and gamers at that time.
Even more surprising is that based on that meager donation, Adams and Zach have made Dwarf Fortress one of the best and enduring games to this day. In addition, Dwarf Fortress is still free to serve players and the community, until the two developers decide to open the sale of this game on Steam from December 6.
It didn’t take long for the Dwarven Fortress to become a real phenomenon. In just a short time, the game sold more than 300,000 copies. And if you do a simple math, that equates to $9 million in revenue for two developers when the purchase price of Dwarf Fortress is $30. Minus the Steam discount, Adams and Zach and their team will still be millionaires. But certainly, 300,000 is still not the final number that Dwarf Fortress collects.
Surprisingly, not many gamers complained about the two developers’ decision. Even, most of the comments also said that many people have been playing Dwarf Fortress for free for the past 20 years, and are just waiting for the opportunity to pay 30 USD as an act of gratitude to the developer. What a beautiful story in the game world. Adams and Zach are now more secure in taking care of themselves, paying their bills, and spending all their time focusing on Dwarf Fortress.
