Those that play Dwarf Fortress will know that the game is filled with stories; the difficulty getting those stories across to non-players is the fact that the stories exist as a mix of moving ASCII characters, text and applied imagination. There are some really neat examples of stories been told in a comic book style, such as the Bronze Murder art that can be found here. Video wise I haven’t seen much but youtuber user RiqCrow created a short animation showing the story of a ghostly miner in a fortress he played. What’s really nice about the video is that it fits the Dwarf Fortress style perfectly, it’s very well done but comes across as low tech. I love the gritty voices. Enjoy:
