Dwarf Fortress's creators talked about the Steam release, which would take place on December 6, 2022, as a major financial triumph.
Developers earned more than 7.2 million dollars in January, compared to 15 thousand dollars in previous months. At the same time, they will not take the new huge sum for themselves in whole – just under half will go to taxes, salaries, and various business expenses.
The authors were able to overcome many difficult issues related to the game's health and development, while also expressing their gratitude to fans who helped them achieve such success. They will soon finish the arena patch, and then improve other aspects of the project.
Dwarf Fortress has a 95% approval rating on Steam, with over 17,000 reviews. In the past, the authors claimed impressive sales.
