So, there's a new player in the field of Dwarf Fortress like games, and its name is Gnomoria. http://gnomoria.com/
Basically, its a town of gnomes that you manage, and you can dig, build, sow, plant, harvest your way through the seasons, whilst fighting off goblins and golems.
Like in Dwarf Fortress, you manage your gnomes by assigning tasks like digging out tunnels, marking areas of trees to be felled, farms to be sowed and so on. Your gnomes also do a lot of work on their own by hauling things, milking cows, and generally helping out where they are needed.
You can also organize them into a militia to defend against goblin invasions or Golems that comes from the dark, just like Grue's.
You can download the demo and try it for free for 6 days (in-game time) and the game itself can be bought through Desura or the games own website.
I've played this a bit the last few days, so feel free to ask me any questions!
