In a glorious display of camaraderie and good-natured mischief, the masterminds behind Dwarf Fortress and Deep Rock Galactic have joined forces once again. Their noble quest this time? To rally the gaming community and demand a "dwarf" tag on Steam. But they won't stop there – they want your help, dear gamers, to make this dream a reality.
You might recall the valiant efforts of Ghost Ship Games, the studio behind Deep Rock Galactic, and Kitfox Games, the publisher of the Dwarf Fortress port. They first began their campaign for a dwarf tag on Steam back in January, and now, they've received a response from the mighty Steam overlords. The short answer? "No." But fear not, for the real answer is more intriguing: "Okay, but only if people on Steam start using it as a tag."
Armed with this knowledge, the two studios stand united, just a tiny bit taller than before. In a joint tweet, they confess, "Our friends at Steam have declared that 'dwarf' is 'not a tag' – much like elf, centaur, wizard, and all those other mystical creatures. It's a legitimate and fair point, but let's face it, dwarves are cooler and possess a fanbase that's more dedicated than any of those other fantastical beings." Clearly, this entire campaign is a whimsical endeavor, but the sheer dedication of these studios is nothing short of delightful.
Now, it's time for action. While Steam already has tags for mystical creatures like werewolves and vampires, they only come into existence when users manually apply them on the Steam store. So, here's the plan, my fellow adventurers: The next time you stumble upon a dwarf game on Steam, take matters into your own hands and manually add the "dwarf" tag. Together, we shall show Steam that we mean business and that a dwarf tag holds immense value for the platform. Remember, dwarves who stand together are slightly taller than before!
To aid you on this noble quest, the studios have provided a list of nearly 200 dwarf games on Steam. It's the perfect starting point for all you dwarf enthusiasts out there. Let's band together, forge an unstoppable alliance, and reshape the future of Steam for the better.
As the gaming world eagerly awaits a plethora of upcoming PC games, one question lingers in the air like the scent of freshly mined mithril: How many of these games will feature our beloved dwarves? Only time will tell. But rest assured, dear gamers, that through our unwavering determination and mischievous spirit, the dwarf tag shall conquer Steam, and dwarf-themed games will finally find their rightful place in the gaming pantheon.
So, don your sturdy helmets, grab your trusty pickaxes, and embark on this epic journey alongside our stout-hearted friends from Dwarf Fortress and Deep Rock Galactic. Together, we shall carve a path to victory, bringing the joy of dwarven adventures to gamers far and wide. Let us stand tall, my fellow dwarven brethren, for the day of triumph is within our grasp!
