  1. A fine likeness! Especially the eyes.
  2. We'll share some news soon!
  3. We'll probably take questions from the community in the future, and answer ones we think will be interesting to discuss. Some of that could overlap with nuts and bolts game mechanics stuff, sure. Depends on what kind of questions we get.
  4. Get used to it. I'm a rambler! I think if you're not interested in hearing 10-15 mins of our thoughts about Mad Max, you likely won't be interested in future episodes. I would have gone on way longer, and intend to go back to it whenever possible.
  5. We don't want to limit topics to only those relevant to the game. It's meant to be more of a "fireside chat" format where we riff on stuff we're interested in. In future segments we'll likely pull some questions from the community and discuss them, but this is more about building a community around shared interests, not just The Long Dark.
  6. It means you have more available options in this slot. If you have an item in that slot and no additional options, there's no + symbol (like you have for shoes, socks, etc.).
  7. When we get around to it. Remember, the Roadmap is an aspirational list.
  8. Thank you for sharing this thoughtful analysis! You are very much on point.
  9. Nothing new to report on the console front.
  10. Yes, that is our intention, as long as we can preserve world continuity between Story and Sandbox.
  11. It's something that is very tricky to get right. We're working pretty hard on it. So far, I'm really happy with the results and I think it adds to the already strong sense of presence in the game world.
  12. Thanks for all the support, everyone! The team really appreciates it.
  13. Unfortunately, that's not the only spelling mistake in that screenshot.
  14. Lots to talk about here. I'll take it to PM.
  15. Hello Baukje! Thank you for your message. You're actually the first van Lierop I've ever encountered outside my immediate family. Feels a bit like discovering a lost relative. I'm so happy you decided to join us. Welcome!
