Agreed - the reason I tend to cheer this one on so much is that it's a game concept I've wanted to see for a long time. I've even thought before about making this type of game myself. Now I don't have to!

I think part of the confusing thing about the games he references is that his game is not a straight-up clone of any one of those games. It merely draws elements from all of them. Dwarf Fortress for its procedural approach to world-building, Dungeon Master / EotB / Might & Magic for their 1st-person viewport and grid-based movement, etc. He never claims the game will actually play like Dwarf Fortress, or have a party like Might & Magic.
