Whats with the "Every 2 weeks we make a really unexciting announcement" thing Beamdog has going on? Or should I be excited, but I'm just not smart enough to realize it?

It's marketing; you need something to remind people of your product, so you parcel out news stories at regular intervals.

Oh. I get that. I'm just surprised that they can't make up better stuff.

And don't get me wrong - I'm not saying the people they announce hiring aren't quite talented. Just, I dunno, tell me something more interesting.

Yeah, I guess it harder to come up with meaningful press releases when the game has been completed for over a decade…

This is close to the truth, though I don't see anything wrong with their announcements. What is everyone expecting?

Hiring a new writer means they haven't written everything. We know from Cam and Trent's tweets they are just digging in to the new interface. In other words, they are just getting started.

But it's also a short development and you need to build your marketing in time, hence they've had to start promoting the product before they have much to show.

Yeah, it should be a short project (crosses fingers).
