Embark borrows heavily from Dwarf Fortress and Minecraft with a dash of Rimworld thrown in for good measure. The creator of the game asked us to check it out, so we did! My initial impression are very positive. Yes, there are many derivative elements, but the way they work feels like the closest anyone is ever going to come to a 3d Dwarf Fortress. I’m looking forward to exploring the possibilities of these worlds….just as soon as I’ve beaten the Darker Side of the Moon in Super Mario Odyssey.
