Does anyone play this game? It's quite complicated and rewarding.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

Yes, I do.

It's quite rewarding indeed. It's one of those few gems of a game that you only find once in a decade.

I think the next gem will be a game similar to Dwarf Fortress with a proper UI and perhaps some more civilization features (massive cities, schools, institutions, etc.). What do you think?

It's possible but I think what makes this game so good is that it's so deep and unique. If you make clones I think the novelty will wear off.
