Yeah I think it looks nice. Petro deserves to have their own interpertation anyway seeing that they have put so much hard work into this game.

And yes, Welcome to our humble forums!

Thanks I usually let Delphi do the talking, but I will post when I see an easy (and safe) answer like this. I will pass on your compliments to the art team.

[QUOTE=Darth_Torpid-PG]Yep, I'm a designer. I share an office with Delphi. They usually don't let me post very often since I tend to be far more blunt and truthful than the the PR guys would like

Well its good to meet you, first time ive ever talked to a game Designer.

Does the Job pay well?

What did you mean about being more blunt/truthful?....care to share any new info? lol

I can't complain about the salary - it keeps my Starbucks habit satisfied. The hours are sometimes long, but I'm working on a game all day so I don't notice much

PR people tend to spin things so everyone comes out in the best light, and in some cases they like to withold information to highten anticipation. I tend to be brutally honest, and I've never been much for surprises. There's some subjects that I will leave to Lucas and/or Delphi to handle (the whole Venator thing for example) because I lack the PR spin talent.

Obviously there's some things I can't answer, but feel free to ask what you will - you might get lucky

Ooh hooh, you've done it now.

You used the word Venator.

There's no saving this thread now.

Oh wait, yes there is.

There there now. Easy Mjolnir.

Well then, what could be a good, safe question?
Um, well, could you tell us if... no... not safe
How many .... no, that isn't safe either.
Where did the ... drat it unsafe
Why did ... UNCLEAN!!!!
Who decided that... hooo boy, not even going there.....

Uh, could you give us a hint as to what a safe area would be?

Safe would be asking for a clarification on anything that has already been posted by LEC either on their site or on one of the major gaming sites (such as GameSpot or IGN). Asking for things like "what's that thing in that screen shot?" is probably also safe, though I might not be able to go into details, only give you a name (such as the ring question above).

I think I read somewhere that you can increase the base limit, but maybe I'm wrong.
