Oooh, Sandbox of God remake! I hope it'll feature better graphics. That was pretty much the only thing that could be improved on that game.

This doesn't look like Cave Story in the very slightest!

Looks like the forum thread for Sandbox of God is only available to registered users...

Oh, forgot to add that Simon Parzer is the same person who ported Cave Story to the GP2X, which is linux based. So it would make sense that he would make a linux port as well...

Wow, new Dwarf Fortress! Can't wait, list of changes must be humongous.

Yeah. From what I've read it may as well be a different game. Looks like it will be a lot more complicated...

*more* complicated? How, exactly, is that possible?!

Graham, added are complete freedom in fortress placement, layers (so, 3D dungeon digging - this is the main thing), and water flow (so no more seasonal flooding). Loads of other stuff too.
