💎 #DWARFFORTRESS 💎
THE DORFS ARE BACK IN TOWN
(A new run of DF forts, in which we name dwarfs after volunteers and watch them all die because I can't military for shit)
I'm sorting files for Escape at the moment, and it really looks like they repeated a lot of stories.
Within about a year, as well.
It's been five or so weeks since I bought that new HDD, and it's still not installed, so that really needs to just get done already
I did a loose portrait study tonight, Mastodon. ^__^ https://mastodon.social/media/d35J5pkpH80YQ5w-uEI
Could I do something like this myself?
Probably, yeah, but I think the showing-off and inviting other people to mesh in is also an important aspect. Just like you could get people to visit you in farmville, or parties in Habitica, your socialisation also helps enforce the loop
I could definitely see something similar to all of these things, but you tie it back into something external (rather than internal like The Sims has) - Habitica did this well by rewarding you for self-vetted accomplishments.
So I'd like to see that + more, but unfortunately Habs is dead (to me)
That's the part that, if I were inclined, would inspire me I guess.
I like the concept of having something where you can add/customise and continue to do so with new things.
That's why Habitica was really good (before they fucked it up) - you got new items, new outfits, new pets.
All really cool stuff
The other side of it, is that I see the need/positioning for just a framework where you build a space and decorate it (and then the additional content packages around that to decorate more, etc).
I've seen this in The Sims, in housing in Morrowind, Habbo Hotel (though I never played), Terraria, Minecraft, etc
So, having played The Sims for a bit, and yes, I can admit that I like the game in theory but the reality is a bit more grey
There's something about accomplishing things that we like - I get the whole core loop of small victories, etc.
Clean up -> nice!
Go shower -> nice!
It's all good loops, etc, etc
But I found it a little too... yeah, ok
It'll all be fine.
