  1. Out of curiosity, then, how will future DLCs work? Will you continue to publish new monthly DLCs for Academagia until year 2 comes out? Or will you try to set up DLCs for the no-longer-a-Secret Project? Not sure if the latter will work at all, but then we've only been given a glimpse.
  2. I have to ask though... you guys spent a lot of time on this new interface and quite a number of innovations over the original design have been made, and I'm just wondering how much, if any, of it is being ported/adapted into Academagia (1 or 2)? Good choice of title, too.
  3. I'm glad to see such a wonderful project come to fruition. Just a few weeks to go now. I have to admit, the music on the trailer had me just as hooked as did the characters and idea behind it. Reminds me of a more structured version of the Princess Maker games.
  4. Naturally everyone is thrilled to hear this... Any idea what day the SP will be announced?
  5. Dear god, I asked that in December? Is the problem that you're trying to resurrect John Wayne, who starred in "The Longest Day," to voicecast? That would be appropriate.
  6. Please tell me you are titling the secret project "Only a Couple Weeks" :-)
  7. Hey, this is a great idea. If year two improves on the crafting system, why not incorporate a building system too, tied to engineering? Maybe for giving boosts to your cohort or college? In fact, clubhouses and working on them could be an adventure in and of itself.
  8. If this surprise is just a massive trailer for the 3rd anniversary.....
  9. Woohoo! Just in time for finals to be over. Hope to hear a special announcement soon. :-)
  10. How's work coming along on the Steampunk Pony adventure?
  11. I keep planning on doing some solo play with an alchemist character, but I tend to get lost in all of it, not to mention graduate school gets in the way. Dang you, PhD!
  12. Sick & hilarious. I mean the very first adventure path has a graphic description of a mad goblin eating a guy's face off. Brutal.
  13. They should've taken the Pathfinder RPG goblin approach. They don't write or spell anything, believing that such things "steal the words from your head." Things are simpler that way.
  14. Legate, you can start the game you mentioned where no variable can have the same value twice starting with Ibbid. I don't think you will ever find "High-INT" and "Orc" again, regardless of the game type.
  15. Schwarzbart, we already know what it's going to be. The Secret Project is a game of the same name set in a Steampunk Academagia setting with a heavy dosage of cute-tastic My Little Pony and political simulation. Who knows, it might spawn a whole series of quirky offshoots, like SimSteam and My Little Dictator. The only thing we now have to figure out is whether or not magic and technology are at odds. Whatever the case, my first character class selection will be a Luddite Technologist, the master of paradoxes!
  16. So long as I can get a Mastery or Gates cutie mark!
  17. Not sure if I should hug or strangle you. Guess I can do both at the same time. Muahahaha
  18. I think I've figured it out! You guys are delaying until the 21st, aren't you? You want the last episode of Season 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to be shown before you shock the Brony world with your spinoff of it, don't you? I'm onto you guys
  19. I second Schwarzbart. Last chance this century! You'll have to wait until 2-22-22 to pull that again (and yes, please tell me you will release a game called Catch-22 that year).
  20. So should we be expecting anything special in the next week or so?
  21. Maybe it's Punkpunk! Double the action, double the goggles!
  22. If it's a game based on Pathfinder, I'll squee with Mikka!
  23. A steampunkish RPG & sim. I think I see where this is going. Either we are taking out robber barons (RPG, fight the ultimate evil of the universe, etc), or becoming one (run a little colony or factory or something). Actually, that would make a good title for a game if it hasn't been used (recently). But if a female is protagonist, this can't be a patriarchal society, can it? Unless this is a 19th century sexual revolution! Now there's a rich plot hook you. Of course, I'm still trying to figure out how simulation fits into all of this. Reminds me of King of Dragon Pass (an old Runequest-based PC game) the way you say it, which combined elements of both genres in a charming way. I have long thought a steampunk fantasy version of that would be exciting.
  24. Crossing my fingers and hoping that the secret project is a Steampunk Fantasy simulation of some kind.
  25. Well, so long as it has one of those little paper umbrellas we'll excuse it.
