@gandalf.nho We have talked a lot about a horror RPG. We were within inches of doing a RPG with White Wolf and then CCP came in and purchased them. :(
i heard that you were only doing two handed spears ATM. have you considered having two types of spears, longer two handed ones (or regular spears), and what amounts to a short spear or javelin? you didn't throw longer spears really as they were more of a reach weapon, but javelins/short spears were used very much as a weapon that could be both thrown and used with a shield for melee fighting. if you could figure out a way to implement the difference, it would be kind of cool.
what would you have done if the initial pace had continued and you'd ended up with 24 million dollars?
@Andron: Yep, it's mentioned somewhere on the page IIRC
Think the ingame item should be dropped as its referred to as the kick starter item.
You mean the price for the base game will go up after the kickstarter ends?
Good day @Obsidian
Not many days left, it is a bit like the quiet before the storm at the moment, is the team primed for the last few day rush :-)
@Andron Yeah, we need to call those out. I know the one unique thing is the price at $20/$25.
@Eero I'll just finish the interview I'm doing right now and then I'll check them. Probably about 10 minutes or so.
Oh, just noticed I forgot to add $20 for shipping.
Hey Feargus! Its been a slow day.
I have a follow-up to a question I had earlier about how unique the rewards are for Kickstarter. Are any of the benefits/rewards unique to the time window of the kickstarter project (next 6 days), whether ks or paypal? Like, you can only get such and such if you donate before the kickstarter ends?
@Feargus, a curiosity, Obsidian never thinked with the idea of creating a horror RPG?
how did i just know you'd show up when i left for a bit?
got a couple questions if you're answering them.
love the dungeon I hope we will find cool things down there, like ancient civilization ruins or something!
@Feargus can you tell us current paypal numbers (or least pledge ammount)?
@Kabraxis I looked at it this morning for a bit. Looks very cool I loved the Wing Commander games.
While you were gone I saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico. Not even lying folk.s
Oh, hi Feargus, great timing.
I am pretty excited at the moment as I am a big SciFi fan (even more than Fantasy, sorry :P) and I just read about the Star Citizen crowdfunding. Did you already hear about it?
Crowdfunding is one of the best things that happened to the game industry... in my opinion.
When the update comes along - please share across your Facebook groups. That really helps get the word out and it gets us Facebook likes, which mean more dungeon love.
Pretty good, weird issues at work but nothing insurmountable (yet)
no problem we just like our info fix
Great! So many good games are released in these days! :)
@Feargus: Tired, it's late night. ;)
I've played Witcher 2 serveral times, last time in Dark-Mode, was quite fun. ;)
On my list: XCOM, Dishonored, Torment, DivineDivinity, PES 2013,.....:)
Good to hear. Apologies on the late update, we had a lot of stuff to talk about - and the list of all the reward tiers is crazy long to make it's correct.
Hello Feargus. We're doing well.
@feargus great we all just waiting patiently for more news as we cant get enough :-)
Star Citizen Pledge page if anyone is interested:
Main page is down due to "the overwhelming response to our campaign launch"
Hiya Feargus - how's things.
How is everyone doing?
Update is coming in just a bit.
Not sure what people think but a nice add on might be a printed version of the Novella signed by Chris Avellone.
@Lord: Right? Playing Witcher 2 right now, want to play Planescape: Torment and Dishonored next... but also Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex 3. Time? Nope.
Oh, holy cow, the Star Citizien (by Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts) trailer is amazing.
Crowdfunding is the new Steam Christmas Sale.
I could need some, too.....but time would be the first choice..... ;)
Buying them now on GOG doesn't affect the version, you can just wait before downloading them (or re-download them later). Gog will put a little "new" on your games when they have a new version as well.
maybe fire alarm really pushed update back :-( oh by the way Feargus still no mention of ingame pet on front page, unless im missing it.
(i was wondering if someone would say that)
xcom is supposed to be a good game as it seems.
Hola, LC. You need time, I need pie.
The pie is a lie.
Hello everybody! :)
It's horrifying.....I'm playing XCOM (couldn't resist), bought Divinty Anthology (great box set) and still wait for Dishonored.....I need MORE time.... :/
In regards to the Divinity deal, would it be best to wait till tomorrow then for when they've hopefully managed to update the games, or would buying them now not really affect that sort of thing?
@Bootsy81 - it's a mystery.
@Trister - maybe someone ate his pie? See you later.
I KNEW you stole it!!!
@SGR It could also just be that MCA hit the ( key instead of the ) key. They're right next to each other.... ;)
I am the dark overlords.
Exactly, it's a lot more complicated. What is written has to be able to work within the mechanics of the game world created or else it may end up scrapped. I've actually read of levels or concepts that were scrapped for such reasons. Some were quite cool visually, but they just couldn't make it work within the game.
@ bruce @ SGR
oh. i'm going to get a piece of pie. IRL. because i have some. :D
