Well since I’m currently still somewhat bedbound, and can’t programm on my game all day, I though I could ask if someone here knows a few nice deep/complex games. I found it very hard to find similar games so far, as only very few people are playing each compared to the casual mainstream games.
Games that I already know:
-> DoungenKeeper similar, Build a fortress with dwarfes into the world try to stay alive
->very basic grafics, with mods this can at least be upgraded to 2d low detail tile grafics, but still is very user unfriendly.
-> make some dumb mistake, watch one dwarf become depressed, ripping legs of kittens and painting the wall with it, then go on a killing spree trough your just build fortress.
-> Forgett to brew beer, winter comes all water freezes, see the surviors kill each other in panic ect.
-> Basically no way to win at all.

/tg/station 13 is a paranoia-laden roleplaying game set against the backdrop of a nonsensical, metal death trap masquerading as a space station.
Upon joining you get a job assigend and try to do your job and stay alive (depending on your job doing your job alone needs usually several hours of trying and playing untill you completly understand what to do when). Requires in character gaming for most fun, but has also very hilarious situations, if you dont know it i suggest to give it a try.
(free open source game)
So far probably the most complex military simulation game, Needs quite long to master even basics. (like flying a helicopter needs several hours of training, before doing it in teamhelping way) also very funny mods, like a mad max one, where you try to find supplys for your team and fortify a town whatever as your home, also there are a few rally gamemodes for it wich works surprisingly well, (never though makeing a racing game with old ladas and hatchbacks would make that much fun)
http://www.arma2.com/ (grafically limited version free on steam (no mods for this one))
Well basically you build rockets and other spaceships and try to make missions within a real simulated solar system(eg scales and time)
(somewhat around 23$)
Well you have the source engine and stuff like welder, wheels ect, build whatever you want and the engine can still support. Has gamemodes for rp,space,towerdefence and nearly infinte other stuff, definitly one basically simple game, that gets comples by having sheer endless possbilities. (steam says i have wasted near to 900 hours in this game already)
10€ (you might need another source engine game first, also strongly recommend ep1 and ep2 as many addons use content from them)
Ps. I know play somewhat strange games, but the normal ones are usually far to shallow to motivate me for longer than a few hours. If you know anything fitting or similary complex a response would be great.
