    Someone who clearly was too shy to sit closer to Avellone. I sense sexual tension there.

    Turns out it's Steve Dobos, the representative of the programming team. Apparently they let Kevin Saunders bring in an old teammate for that position: http://www.mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/by_year/developerId,116755/

    So he's the guy to blame when you hear "we wanted to do this cool shit but we were told it wasn't feasible".

    he's probably telling McComb something life-altering, hence McComb's thoughtful expression.

    Haven't gotten a single email or kickstarter update from Inxile regarding Torment since the number 20 one in May. They only send out shit to people who have registered an account on their website or also to backers? Coz then I need to contact them.

    EDIT: Ah, my new account does reflect my pledge. Ok then.

    There is a really nifty article on Adams blog, about writing dialogue. In games and partly, though not directly, in new Torment.
    Adam Heine

    http://www.adamheine.com/2013/07/writing-game-dialogue.html

    i cant leave a comment there without signing in so ill just paste it here:



    Nice examples. Just like in the old days, eh? Only better.
    The only detail i didnt like was the "Atack" choice. Its so... simple, limited. It really stands out crudely between all those other extended options.
    I hope we wont actually get to see it standing out like a sore thumb like that, in the game itself.
    Instead it should also get an upgrade, get improved, diversified, more connected with the narrative and circumstances - in its various options.

    Like say, types of specific weapons, NPCs specific defenses, previous choices, witnesses, and many others like those.
    Then, there is a whole field of different faints, tricks, threats that could work better or worse depending on how you pull it all off, or if you dont manage... etc. etc.

    Great Game man! Ima Black Dragon, i got my ass whopped by some Elders but now i got my own place and bunch of Goblin minions! Ha!
