On a scale of 1-10 ; with 1 being "What is the name origin of X?" and 10 being "If X was a type of food what colour bowl would they be served in?" ; how fed up are you with overly superfluous 'lore' questions?

Rhetorical question, it doesn't require an answer it's more of an observation.

Do anyone in your studio like playing RTS games, or they are more focused on playing puzzles?

Efficient, Refined, and constantly advancing? Advanced but somewhat specialized and inneficient? somewhat crude? or is it a bit stagnant and humans have reached the peak of their technology, and prefers to use tried and true technology?
Has Alric ever been sick? How severe is it? What does he do when he is sick?
Has Eridan ever been sick? How severe is it? What does he do when he is sick?
Has Lynn ever been sick? How severe is it? What does she do when he is sick?
Has Reg'son ever been sick? How severe is it? What does he do when he is sick?
What if Alric is given the Twilight Avenger death animation ingame?
Does the Marines need to reload? (Reload individual magazines, pausing between bursts of fire doesn't exactly count)
If all heroes are put in a zombie apocalypse scenario, who will survive the longest?


- Humans are advanced, somewhat efficient and always moving forward.
- Alric once got a fever, but the fever got scared of him and ran away.
- Eridan is lovesick. It's quite severe.
- Lynn has never been sick, except when she hears Catha talking about Eridan...
- Reg'Son has never been sick.
- What about it?
- Marines do need to reload.
- BoneHeart. Obviously. (He is already dead, so...)

Mmm... never thought about it. It would depend on the religion. Just like in the real world, not all religions demand celibacy.

We have 30 people in the studio. So preferences can vary a lot. However, I'm under the impression that most of us like RTS games.

Nope. Sorry.

Why do they still use bolt action rifles in Iron Marines? (CoughUpgradestoSemiAutosCough?)
Why in Iron Marines (and in some other futuristic space settings) humans use bipedal mechas instead of just the usual tanks and armored vehicles, its not like the mechs are just flat out better right?
Where did Alric acquire his sword?
Where did Alric get his armor?
Where did Lynn get her blade forged?
Where did Eridan get his bow and twin swords? (i would guess that it is standard issue with the bow, but the blades?)
How many daggers is Mirage holding up?
Why do you need to buy fat boys if the dwarves produce it?
Why do you need to buy orbital strikes if you have a fleet waiting in orbit dropping sentry guns and teleporting replacements for you?
How do heroes use hero spells if they are dead?
Because it looks cooler than the 'standard' death animation.
Has Cpt. Tanguins ever been sick? how severe was it? what did he do?
Has Kara ever been sick? how severe was it? what did she do?

TaTs, I could use your opinion. What do you think about my concept here:

In fact, what does the lore guy in the studio think about it?

This question may have been asked before, but what is your approach in building the story for KR4, considering it takes place after Frontiers? Will you go into depth like you guys did for Origins, or will the story be more simple like in the original KR?

- To convey the idea that they are "sniper rifles" to people what is not very weapon savvy.
- If you have to ask "why mechas?"... then I have to reply "because Mechas are the most awesome thing ever, period".
- Alric uses a common sword, he simply picked up from barrack, like any other soldier.
- Alric armour is special, made by the master smiths from his tribe... a knowledge now lost forever, since Alric is the only one left.
- Lynn's sword was a gift from Baj'Nimen... she killed him with that very sword at the end of "Bittering Rancor". The sword was forged by the old Twilight blacksmiths, using a bit of dark magic.
- Both the bow and the blades are just standard issue for elven rangers. Eridan is all about skill and training, not items. ;)
- No one dares to ask.
- Fat Boys are produced by a private guild of dwarven weaponsmiths that are not part of the alliance between the Dwarven Kingdom and Linierea... so, in order to get their goods, you have to pay for them.
- Orbital Strikes uses a very limited resource that is also necessary for other things, so if you want to overspend it on one single attack... you better cough up some credits for it... budget and military operations are always tricky.
- A decision of gameplay over narrative. Losing the Hero spell every time your Hero dies would be a tremendous handicap and would mess up balance quite a bit.
- Taguins had the flu a few times... he takes lemmon tea with ginseng.
- Kara has hangovers that are only beaten with bacon.

Oh... Sorry for not replying. Maybe your emails went to the Spam folder... I'll double check right away.

You can also write to me at <[email protected]>.

This is very good.

Things have a natural flow. This is a forum for people that likes our games... but it's been almost 2 years since our last release, and over a year since our last update with new levels. Once our previous games have been discussed to exhaustion, what's left is to talk about other stuff, things you are experiencing, stuff that you like or dislike, you don't need this forum to do this...
And, this is one of the things I love the most about this forum and this community, you guys are still talking to each other. Chat makes things much more dynamic, and the only reasons why I don't hang out in Discord all that much is because a) I get too distracted or b) Can't be connected during the hours of most activity.

Then there's also the fact that this forum is a bit outdated and a major overhaul is kinda needed at this point. (Delebru explored some options earlier this year but they were too expensive).

As soon as the Beta for Iron Marines, KR4 and Mystery ProjectX are made official, the forum will recover some activity, specially because we use the bug reports and suggestion threads as a backlog... Discord is very cool, but is not ideal for this.

It will be a middle point between the two. It won't be as simple as the original KR, but it will be more lighthearted than Origins, which might cause the impression that there isn't much dept in the story. :)

You know someone that isn't weapon savvy may just consider any gun with a longer than average barrel and a scope to be a sniper rifle, but still maybe because the extra detail in the rechambering animation is just nice
Since the 2 militias carrying Denas seems to be the toughest militias in the Kingdom (both in terms of their ability to carry Denas and to withstand almost 10x the damage of a regular militia) are they the 2 militias featured in the KR comic?
Well.............Mechs are awesome, but inneficient. a tank can carry the same kind of firepower, but is faster, harder to hit, doesn't need to sluggishly turn the entire thing around if something comes from the other side (it can simply rotate the turret), and better protected (because the operator isn't in a plexiglass cabin)
However, as a counterpoint, tanks have the eternal problem of "Tread Broken! We are Stuck!"
In Iron Marines does your fleet that's waiting in orbit have a space battle being fought at the same time?
what's the age of the average common militia?
If all humanoid heroes are put into a zombie apocalypse scenario who would survive the longest?
Why do the heroes' eyes glow??
Where and how did Alric get his perfect haircut?

Mechas, at least in theory, have better mobility over rough terrain.

well, until you consider how much more power the mech would need to move at the same speed as a tank

Until you consider it's Science Fiction, so whatever they say goes because that's how fiction works.

Now let's please leave superfluous comments and go back to only asking questions.

Well in the realms of science fiction, since its possible to make a powerplant powerful enough to make a mech move at least at a decent speed, then its not that bad of an idea, but a tank is still more efficient :) tankgoodness
(also what if the mech topples?)
