The game looks very good!

Will there be any non-human enemies in this game? Monsters? Wildlife?

"For Innos!"

Very few.

There is a stone statue of a demon reading a book. The demon is carved with great precision, and his pose reflects deep thoughts and tranquility. As you approach, the statue closes the book in one fluid motion and looks at you with amusement:

I do believe we have a visitor. Unfortunately, it appears that we are closed at the moment, and I've been instructed to dispose of all visitors. Therefore, we have a dilemma.

Dispose?

Kill. Destroy. Murder. Do you have any preferences in the matter? If there is some sort of death you would enjoy more, feel free to share that with me. Being an expert in killing, I'm sure I'm familiar with most methods and would be more than happy to accommodate your request.

An expert in killing?

Not very bright, are you? * the demon draws two blades out of nowhere with an alarming speed*

1. * trying hard to ignore the blades* You mentioned a dilemma…
2. * draws a weapon* For an expert in killing, you sure like to talk a lot.
3. * run
4. What are you?

If 1 (…dilemma…)
Very observant of you. Yes, a dilemma. You see, there is something you can do for me, and in return I'll let you go free. Even better, I'll allow you to explore this place and give you a great treasure that was given to me for safekeeping. How does that sound to you?

1. Sounds much better than choosing a way to die. So, what can I do for you?
2. [streetwise] That bit about the treasure was way overdone, don't you think?

If 2 (the streetwise option)
Hmm, not so stupid after all. Alright, here is a deal. Try to leave and I'll kill you, stay and argue with me and I'll kill you, do what I tell you and maybe you will live to see the daylight again. So, what's it going to be?

If 4 (what are you?)
Since it's unlikely that you can understand the concept of silicon-based lifeform, call me "stone guardian". I was created by the masters of this tower, who appear to be long gone. Such is the nature of flesh - it doesn't last. Stone, on the other hand, lasts forever. A gift and a curse at the same time, really.

You are very intelligent for a stone creature.

I'm very intelligent for any creature, human, and I highly doubt that you have the capacity to estimate my intelligence.

On the other hand, if you sell a ridiculous number of copies, demonstrate the commercial viability of traditional RPGs beyond all doubt, and single-handedly revive the genre, we may finally be able to discuss Oblivion without people interrupting to whine that it isn't enough like Fallout. We're counting on you, "Vince".

Statues wouldn't be better if they could move. Model airplanes would not be better if they were the same size as airplanes.

Bookmarked! Thanks,VD—lots of information here.

My God!! The game has nothing to do with the Roman Empire! Who knew??

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

Nah, uh huh this sucks, it's way to organized, it's got too much skill and talent displayed and too beautifully presented!

It needs way more misleading hype and trickery, oblivionishness if you will, since that's the new standard in excellence!

Maybe some dancing clowns?

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

I would add that Kieron Gillen´s long article (former keynote) on how to abuse the gaming press is a must read for every indie. You probably know most of the things he´s talking about, but most other indies are somewhat naive in this area.

Very nice - I especially like the subtitles !

“ Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.“ (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
