Take your protein pills and put your helmet on.

If you cast your mind way, way back to January this year, you will no doubt remember Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight, wherein the beloved company set out five prototypes and asked fans to pick which they would like to see developed into a full game. If you can’t remember back that far, James wrote up an excellent piece detailing the five prototypes, so go read that, then come back and pretend you knew what I was talking about all along.
It will come as no surprise to you now, that one of those prototypes has moved into ‘almost a complete game’ category – specifically Spacebase DF-9 has, and it is now available for all to play and enjoy through Steam Early Access and the official site. The official site gives you a Steam key and a DRM free copy, along with a variety of extras for Double Fine super fans.
While it was fairly simple back during the Amnesia Fortnight, SpaceBase DF-9 is a fair bit more complex now, with many calling it a (thankfully) not so incredibly inscrutable version of Dwarf Fortress in space. If you want to check it out, you can watch the trailer embedded below – and check the official site for some video walkthroughs of how the game plays.
