About Mel Guille

  1. Thanks for sharing! Obviously a solar flare like the Carrington Event would be a horrifying disaster, but I find it fascinating to read about. Astronomy is amazing!
  2. Thanks for sharing your suggestion, @Wish! Just quick reminder for everyone: please don't share hacks, mods, or other tools that modify the game in these forums. What players choose to install on their own machines is, of course, their own business, but because we have not yet added mod support and unsupported modification have the potential to introduce issues, we do discourage their use and request that they not be shared in our official communities. Thanks!
  3. Nothing has been announced yet, so I'm afraid I can't comment on exactly what's coming. However development on both Wintermute and Survival Mode continues, and the team pays close attention to how changes and additions are received and takes feedback into account when planning new content. Not a very satisfying answer, I know, but wait and see -- we think you'll like what we have coming.
  4. This article was published while most of the team was on break -- worth a read if you've ever wondered why so little Canadian identity is present in games, even the ones developed here. Our Creative Director @Raphael van Lierop provided his thoughts on the topic as well. Excerpt: Some of the highest-profile games in the world, such as Assassin's Creed, FIFA soccer and Mass Effect, are made in Canada. Highly anticipated upcoming games include Bioware Edmonton's Anthem and an unnamed Star Wars game from Electronic Arts' Motive studio in Montreal. Yet for all these impressive statistics, you'll rarely see so much as a Canadian flag in games made here. If Canada is such a force in the world of video games, then why do we so rarely see it in our products? Link: http://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainment/the-long-dark-canadian-video-games-1.4288563
  5. While Survival Mode is a pretty polished experience at this point, there are still lots of improvements and additions we're hoping to make available in the future. Don't assume it's set in stone just yet!
  6. I ran across a neat article about how Google Street View is including Canada's national parks in their service. Quttinirpaaq National Park in Nunavut was recently added. Ever wanted to walk along side a 30 foot high glacier in the Canadian arctic? https://www.google.com/maps/@81.6483419,-76.5727644,3a,75y,343.65h,81.07t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1su_gWpZz57BbsiI8VhYQeDA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  7. Some of the delay was a result of the hurricane activity -- areas hosting Microsoft data centers were impacted by the storms, and as a result publishing was unavailable for a few days. Not anyone's fault, just a thing that happened. Happily it didn't take them too long to work though the backlog after coming back online -- kudos to their team!
  8. Welcome to the forums, @TwiztedFirestarter! Thanks for the kind words about The Long Dark -- we're glad you're enjoying it so much. How long has your current character survived for?
  9. Even when on break, we've still got a few people around to make sure players are looked after. We love you guys too much to disappear entirely!
  10. Thanks for sharing your suggestion, @tsrs! I've moved this thread over to the Wishlist forum to help keep player ideas for the game organized in one place.
  11. If you have found a bug or glitch, the best way to let the Hinterland team know is by adding it to our Public Bug Database: https://hinterlandgames.atlassian.net/projects/TLDP To submit a report, just click on the red Create button near the top of the page -- it's not necessary to log in! You can also look for and share possible solutions to glitches and other issues in the Technical Discussions area of the forums: http://www.hinterlandforums.com/forums/forum/92-technical-discussions/
  12. Your comments wound me deeply. I hope at least we are distinguishing *craft* beer from mass-market fermented rice water. I am rather proud of the Canadian craft brew selection (although I may be biased as a family member is a lead brewer at a small BC operation. )
  13. Hi 4djes. It sounds like your save was corrupted when the power outage happened. However the game also saves to the cloud. Did Steam try to sync with the cloud version?
  14. Very late on this obviously, sorry about that! I've been on break for the last couple of weeks. @Gredos, are you still having issues with this? If so, I might suggest contacting support directly by email for direct assistance: support@hinterlandgames.com @Thrasador sorry you've had trouble locating patch information! You've probably figured this out by now, but just in case you didn't know we have a News Archives specifically for Studio news, updates, etc nested in the News and Updates section. The Xbox Patch 1 and 2 announcements threads have been moved over there, along with other older announcement threads to help keep them organized.
  15. Welcome to the forums -- nerding out welcome and encouraged!
