If you want a Dwarf Fortress Clone with graphics, please play Gnomoria.
This game is a very low quality and not fit for release.
It is a bummer that this was one of the first game to be ever Greenlit. Contrary to the public belief, this game is not and never was Early Access, yet we got an Alpha Version of the game sold. The store page also says that it will be continuously updated, but this does not happen. We get a patch all few months, which tends to break even more things.
The visuals are okay, but the menus are just downright amateurish, the tutorials useless and the game absolutely explains nothing. Hello Developers, it is 2013, wake up. You don't need to hold my hand, but if you don't explain how your game works, then there is not fun to be had. Crawling through half the internet to understand how the game works is not something you want.
Gnomoria is way more intuitive and has a clear progress line, even if you never played this genre.
Don't touch it with a 10 ft pole held by someone else on the other side of the street.
Update May 7th, 2014:
The devs have now officially abandoned the game. There will be no more updates.http://www.townsgame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11480
