I must not game.
Gaming is the mind-killer.
Gaming is the little-death that brings total obliteration*.
I will face the game.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the game has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
Surrounded by empty crisp packets.
— Bene Gesserit Litany against Gaming
It has been a while since I first discovered a compile of Dwarf Fortress that works natively-ish on a mac and I have remained strong since I don’t know – about 10 solid hours after that time.
There is no such thing as an ex-DF gamer. Every day, one after another.
