Okay...but I want you to play as the old lady.
You can. All of those are character models that are playable for the Spy, you just choose one at the start of a match. The ten pictured above are half of the planned 20. Playing as the gentleman with the cane, the man in the wheelchair, the elderly woman, so on - that all affects how your character moves and interacts with the environment.
Well, you can :) In Early-Access Beta!
I noted beneath two which are the "old art" (alpha art). You can read more about the importance of art design in a game about behavior is in the interview :) http://n4g.com/user/blogpos...
And while most of the new art is not in the Beta, some is! You can check out the new stuff in action here: http://www.spyparty.com/ima...
Of the images above there are two "old art" - alpha build stuff. The 10 new character models and the new environments are beautiful, but most of what you'll play in early access is old art.
Trust me when I say that the game is awesome even when ugly.
Agree. I know it's difficult, but it's such an artificial "choice" when playing straight hero/evil is possible - and comes without sacrifices on either side.
Yeah, coolbeans never misses an opportunity :D
Very glad to hear it!
He's being (very) facetious :)
HD asked his questions, then I emailed follow-ups and didn't want to tarnish his reputation with my silly questions :P
The codes, for the most part, are supplied to us for giveaway - so in those cases they are not exchangeable. You get the code, and if you have it you can give it away to someone you like :) (which is also relevant to the budget question, obviously! The budget is more like 2-3x that of another NB site, it's all about being resourceful ;) We <3 all our sites, but yes the prizes have to correlate a bit with the userbase)
There will be cases this month where a title isn...
With the PC you keep nearby.
:) Good luck!
Interesting Q - N4G is the most popular - it's my charming smile? :) It generally has a larger monthly prize budget, and gets a bit more leeway with special events like this!
I'm so happy you're as excited as we are! We've got great things in store this month :)
This is the first ever N4G Indie Month!!! :)
I'm so glad you're as excited as we are! It's been an amazing project to work on and I had butterflies as I put up the content last night! :)
I'm glad someone else is enjoying my awesome map :D
I ran into that in a couple places I lived, though New Orleans notably comes to mind...some places just lack the infrastructure for an industry. Advantage to the idea that indie devs are necessarily nimble? Slovenia! Buenos Aires!
I hear ya - the consolers consolation :D
I know there are fans of Civ Rev out there, but if I'm being honest I've only played the mobile version in desperate travel moments - Civ Rev just makes me want a *real* game of Civ.
I am disappointed that the Grey Wardens story has been dropped, with so few known surviving wardens it could have gotten really interesting. That said, if I were to try for a silver lining it would be that at least they aren't hamstrung by the Grey Wardens.
I agree with the Mage conflict. Plus, I really resented the way the line was handled in DA 2. I'm sorry, I'm not going to let Anders bully and manipulate, no matter my sympathies.
