Josh Sawyer's tweets and teasers, part IV

Recommended Posts

SawyrTumblr on the new subclasses:

 

 

 

All of the subclasses were designed by Nick Carver, though I gave some high-level feedback on them.  I’m not sure if we have plans for an update about them, so I’ll refrain for now.

y'know, the portrait didn't look all too much like paul rudd to us, and until we googled a few o' the responses at josh's twitter, we were as confused as shady.  even so, the linked pic did make us recall a few o' the weird bg1 portraits with the unnatural facial expressions.

Josh lecture at  Graz University of Technology

 

On the subject of ligatures and how Josh didn't understand how it would make writing so much harder to read. I have dyslexia, it's a reading disorder that is unconnected to intelligence. My understanding of it is that it's a neurological based visual impairment, something that allows most people to read effortlessly does not work. fMRI studies show that dyslexics use different and more parts of their brains to read. I had trouble with standard fonts, dyslexics do much better when kerning is wider, making the distinction between letters clearer, so having a style of font that often closes that gap and merges two characters seems like a bad idea. Yeah, I probably could read fonts with ligatures but I read slowly and not automatically, it's tiring as is without adding obstacles.

I have no problems reading it. I also didn't think it was a bug.

 

I just thought "Hm, I guess those jaunty frills don't look thaaat good...?" while frantically searching the corresponding checkbox.

 

Yeah... I'm so sorry Josh!  :wub:

Ligatures are ok, they are just too uncommon, should be more.

 

e.g. Aedyr should be Ædyr ;)

I actually like font ligatures.

That's why I asked Josh for an option to turn them back on. Just for you.  :*

I did turn off liagures for my first playthrough of PoE1. It is not something I am used to seeing, being used to boring generic fonts. After Josh talked about why he put those in a while back, I turned them back on and never looked back. They do give the game a nice flavour and don't hinder my reading at all, once I got used to them (which happened quite quickly). It is certianly smart to not force players to use them, though.
