      Michael > It's something we'll have to carefully consider. Port-forwarding requirements for peer-to-peer online games is not uncommon, though, particularly with small team projects. For the most part, requiring port-forwarding is unavoidable.

      Quick question about multiplayer mode, I've notice that your coder previously work included "Risk of Rain" and I just want to know more about the multiplayer UI; specifically, will Witchmarsh use any of those IP connection? Because when on RoR that's like a huge mistake and very user unfriendly. I had to look up several article about port forwarding and to no avail. Even if another is hosting there usually are a lot of trial and error/connection issue. Fingers cross that I won't have to struggle with IP and port forwarding on Witchmarsh.

      And now it's too late to edit the post.

      Oh, the humanity!

      Ah yes, I remember the Abiltiies update... By the way, I'm pretty sure you meant Abilities =3
