700,000 lines of code, 20 years, and one developer: How Dwarf Fortress is built

Ah, Dwarf Fortress. On the hurdles of working with your own, messy code.

I do worry about author existence failure with this game. I suspect no one else would be able to finish it, even if they wanted to. Writing that much code by yourself, for yourself--it's going to be incomprehensible to anyone else.
