Distantcity is a succession game from the official Team17 Forums. Similar in style to Boatmurdered, control of the fortress rotates after each year. During and after their year, the overseer will choose a dwarf to be an avatar of them, having the same nickname. They are exempt from having their orders changed by future overseers. Currently, five years have passed since the dawn of The Game, which all started with The Big Idea.
