The KS Collector's Edition does not include the Collector's Book.

Which game hook brought you to Project Eternity and interests you the most?

PE will not have co-op/multiplayer, console, or tablet support (sources): [0] [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

Write your own romance mods because there won't be any in PE.

I do not envy Avellone's job when it comes to interviewing... Some of these people have obviously done no research on the topic before doing these interviews... He's repeating himself. I'm surprised he hasn't torn his hair out by now having to repeat the same answers over and over and over and over and over

I was kind-of hoping he would mention something new - something which had not been said elsewhere, but no luck.

 

However, near the end, when she was asking about alphas/betas, he said they would like to see players start playing this early - now, we know there will be a beta, of course ...after all, there is the "Beta key" from the Kickstarter, but I am hoping they will have something even earlier than that - say, release a stand-alone character creation module (which would be a great way to get community feedback on the character creation, and get more people interested in the game) - also, maybe there will be a closed "alpha" as well - although I would expect that to be only under a strict NDA, and perhaps limited to hand-picked people.

 

Ah, well ... we will see.

What would have made this video great is if at 1:50 Rob appeared to rub it in.

There's no reason to call the interviewer a whore... There are other more legitimate concerns to have about the interview than this. She's not knowledgeable about the game, her interview has no new content, she's wasting time with MCA when he could be making the game, etc. However, using that term makes you seem like a misogynist (not saying that you are) that doesn't want women interviewing gamer developers anymore.

Dungeonkeeps, you're new here, please remain respectful. Calling someone you don't even know a whore is unacceptable. It's in your hands to keep this forum a friendly place for discussion, or to let it devolve into yet another one of "those" forums where extreme vitriol damages discussion and divides people into parties.

Your post in another thread was already quite negative in tone. this is not that kind of forum. please keep it that way.

Remember: Argue the point, not the person. Remain polite and constructive. Friendly forums have friendly debate. There's no shame in being wrong. If you don't have something to add, don't post for the sake of it. And don't be afraid to post thoughts you are uncertain about, that's what discussion is for.

Remember folks, it's always better to use the report button, and leave it at that. Keep on topic.

Being a professional means having to remain calm and respectful in the face of being constantly barraged with cookie cutter questions from uninformed interviewers. It comes with the territory.
