Dwarf Fortress is a roguelike civilization simulator developed by Tarn and Zach Adams for over 20 years.

I (and many others) personally like it for its generative story telling. A lot happens in every Dwarf Fortress game and it's up to the player to find and interpret the story. I highly recommend it if you're into DnD or roguelikes, although the game has a very steep learning curve. Up until late 2022, Dwarf Fortress was a free keyboard-only ASCII game. The interface only made getting into the game more confusing but the Steam release (v50) of the game added graphics and a mouse interface. The game remains free with the new features but the graphics are exclusive to the "premium" version of the game.
