Getting Started With Dwarf Fortress – sneak peek!
Below is a sneak peek of one of the Tim Denee illustrations that will be in Getting Started with Dwarf Fortress. The story was told to us by one of the players via a thread on the Dwarf Fortress forums.
The book is out in a couple or three weeks! Hurrah! I have some more news about the book as well:
- THE BOOK WILL BE CURRENT TO v34.08!
- If you buy the ebook through O’Reilly.com you get free updates as I update the manuscript, which I will do at every major release. If you buy the ebook through Amazon, you may end up paying less than O’Reilly but you don’t get the updates for free. You have to go to O’Reilly.com and pay $4.99 to upgrade to a version where you get the book updates for free. I don’t know why this is the case, publishing is weird.
- I am passing all this on to try to ensure that those who have pre-ordered through Amazon or O’Reilly aren’t going to get less than they hoped for.
