Your first fortress: a dwarf fortress crash course
The succession of modes of production is one of the key concepts of Marxist historical theorizing, more widely known as “historical materialism.” Each mode of production is essentially a more or less integrated totality of social relations, with a degree of consistency and continuity defined by the division of labor and production techniques used. Everyone is replicated according to the ‘laws of motion’ of that particular division of labor and collection of technologies, ignoring the mental conceptions of society and the position of each functional component of it, which are such an important part of the material phase of social reproduction’s continuity and stability.
In Marx’s day, the classic periodization of history according to this paradigm was savagery (or “primitive communism”), ancient civilization, feudalism, and then capitalism, with non-European societies taking a detour via the “Asian mode of development.” None of this edifice remains after a century and a half of historical study and refinement. However, feudalism and capitalism are the two most studied modes of development, as well as the most commonly accepted and stable principles. But how do you make sense of them? One need only look at Capital and the enormous literature that has followed in its wake to understand capitalism. Feudalism, on the other hand, is much less well represented in terms of its own features – the key point of contention in the literature has been the controversy over the transformation from feudalism to capitalism, let alone portraying feudalism with the rigor of Marx’s masterpiece on capitalism.

Dwarf Fortress is a true standout among the rising field of indie games. For years, the incredibly rich and nuanced, as well as notoriously user-unfriendly title has been a free staple of awe and frustration. However, the developers have revealed that the game will not only have a paid version on Steam shortly, but it will also have… graphics.
Anyone who isn’t already familiar with the game and culture may find it difficult to comprehend how significant this is. The only thing that hasn’t changed in the decade and a half that this game has been in active, continuous production is that it’s a labyrinth for the eyes, a jumble of alphanumerics and ASCII-based art resembling barrels, dwarves, goblins, and hundreds of different kinds of stone.
You know how in The Matrix they demonstrate how the universe is basically made up of text characters? It’s essentially the same thing, but much more perplexing. After a few years, though, you get a sense of it.
So when developers Tarn and Zach Adams revealed on their Patreon account that a paid premium version of the game would abandon the ASCII in favor of actual sprites and be released on Steam and the indie marketplace itch.io, people’s minds were blown. This is perhaps the most unexpected of all the changes Dwarf Fortress has undergone. Here are several screenshots comparing the new ASCII graphics to the existing ASCII graphics:

While 2020 was a good year for management games, nothing published in the previous 12 months impressed us enough to make our list of the best management games. But don’t worry, it’s just because there are so many classics to choose from. Check out our suggestions below if you’re looking for something to read over the holidays.
We’ve gathered a variety of management games below, so whether you want to run a household, keep colonists sane, process poisonous gases, or obsess over conveyor belt quality, you’ll find something to your liking. The only stipulation is that it must be enjoyable to play right now. That means we’ve left out a few formative classics that may be harder to recommend in 2020, but there are still a few games here that are old enough to drink.
If you’re worried about the state of the genre after we didn’t mention something new this year, instead watch this video. It’s all the management games we were anticipating at the start of the year, and several of them lived up to our expectations. As they progress through early access or as we spend more time playing them, I’m confident that some of these will be vying for a spot on this list:

I was curious if there were any proposals in the works to establish an economy in our dwarven strongholds. While reading the definition of a stack of coins, I was thinking to myself, “It’d be awesome if these coins had usage like in adventure mode,” and wondered if it was in the works to be implemented. I understand that they plan to focus on faith, magic, and law first, but is there any indication that the economy will follow?

Given how things function in real life, this seems to be a bug. When my next-door neighbor, who makes a living lifting boulders with his bare hands, couldn’t pay his rent, he went on a bloody spree that nearly ended human society as we know it. I was too preoccupied with bringing 500 gold coins one by one to get interested. But I understand what you were getting at.
