Pretty much in terms of the curtain rack, yeah.

Though I WILL say, I do think that I'll have a way to turn into a velociraptor and rage around.  Not as a major part of the game, just as one sort of... side thing.  I dunno, maybe it will be a kickstarter stretch goal and I'll build it out in more depth with that.  I was strongly considering mounting turrets on the side of a raptor as your main character for a little while, but I've wisely changed my mind. ;)

Oh! Oh. So it's for THAT project...

Hey you know what would make a good title? Something that invokes bringing dinosaurs to life. And mixing dinosaur and human DNA. Like... "Jurassic Wor--" [is shot]

(and the dinosaurs can be aliens!)

You know, outside of Blue, I think that Watashiwa probably knows more about this project than anybody.  Keith and Pablo know a bit less about it than him.  He's helping me come up with a title, so...

looks at email chain

I might know more than Blue at this point, maybe? But I actually thought that your KS plans were for Arcen's Worst Kept Secret, so you saw my brain actually switching gears.

Yeah, you know more than Blue.  The KS plans would be for two -- the other one and this one, but at different times of the year.

Iiiiiiinteresting. Two separate Kickstarters or one big "fund Arcen for a year" deal?

EDIT: Also, we're so far off topic that we might be well served splitting the last fifteen or so posts into its own thread.

hey he's an idea how about the dinosaurs also be robotic or at least partly?. edit wait a minute if its going to have turrets does that mean it'll actually be a robot dinosaur? if so then I might actually use kick starter for the first time in my life.

It can't be Arcen's worst-kept secret, considering I don't know about it.  I tend to learn about "secrets" right about the ttime they're no longer technically secret anymore. :P

Good sir, velociraptors are noble and intelligent beasts.
