Not every update can be a mechanics update or an art update :p

I was looking forward to hearing about the documentary because they hadn't mentioned it at all really since Update 23.

Thanks for the update. Not as exciting as next week's update will be... but still.

 

Please ask Tim Cain to sit in on one of MCA's Arcanum sessions to give some dev commentary. That would be awesome.

 

That's... cruel. Would be fun though.

Yeah I know, but a man can hope! Still, it's true that it's nice to hear about the documentary even if there's not a *lot* of news on it :p

Heh, I'd love it if there was a some sort of reference to MCA's let's play in PE, like a lady lost in the hills because she refuses to read the map, or an ailing wolf a Ranger can tame and nurse into full health.

A naked lady. And you can say something like "Are you a wild woman from the hills?"

Maybe raised by elves? :p :D

Like HELL it can't!

"Hey guys! Just wanted to share some artwork with you today! Here are some doorknob concepts we've been working on. Also, today we're going to discuss the extensive UI mechanics we've been working on. See, we can't decide between a little arrow button at the side of the given UI pane, to cycle "left" and "right" between characters, or tab bars to do so. Also, let's talk puddles. Will they ripple when you step in them? Can your character dig small trenches to re-route puddles and merge them into larger bodies of water? And last certainly not least, PLUMES!!! Here are 7,000 concepts of plumes we'd like to see. Plumes will probably be the most customizable element in the entire game, surpassing all other aesthetic elements by a minimum of 1,500 options."

What is a "scrum" in the context of game devs? Whiskey-based D&D scrums? Kickstarter finale party scrums? More green-shirt girl!! :)

One might question the wisdom of making a promotional film available only to people who have already bought the product. I realise that without all the tiers the math doesn't work and much less funding would have been raised, but at some point it all starts getting a little ridiculous trying to maintain these artificial barriers.

Ahh, new people can get access if they donate. I guess that makes more sense.

some (i'd like to think only a minority) people behaving incredibly immature on the final video-stream during the kickstarter against a female obsidian employee wearing a green shirt at that time

I don't remember an incredible amount of immaturity--maybe in the alternate stream comments. I just remember it was fun watching the final countdown stream and the instant celebrity of an attractive female dev. As I recall, Adam even mentioned it to the room.
