Do you ever feel pressured by the community about requests, such as this Q&A for example? Knowing if you just don't do it then people will get on your butt about it all.

Will we see any 'feral' actions in overgrowth? I like the idea's of different species having different physics and playstyle, but none of the species feel 'animal' to me. Things like a run on all fours, biting, clawing seem like they could add more variety to the characters, and show that you are playing an Anthropomorphic animal, instead of just a guy in a bunny suit.

Thanks for answering my last question!

I have been wondering this since 2014:

Overgrowth has same sweet features that probably took a good amount of time to polish, like the knife throwing prediction, procedural animations, inverse kinematics, blood mechanics, etc. My question is: How do you prioritize features and idea implementation right now? How do you decide what to work on, and how do you judge whether or not something will be worth the development time to add to the game?

me haz some questionz
are there any plans to make mods that use modified scripts available in sumlauncher?
what is your target on the graphics and detail side? do you try to achieve AAA quality (or go more stylised) & is there any limit given by the engine? or maybe by the system requirements youre targeting
also one for aubrey:
will we see more of the painted backgrounds (2D/3D thing) as in the arena from art asset overview #40? they were cool & the heightmaps always seem to end pretty abrupt.

David, are you sure you want to work on overgrowth for another 10 - 15 years? They say the age of peak cognitive performance is 24. I'm sorry to say, but you're past your prime and it's only going to get worse. Here's what I'm suggesting: sell Overgrowth to ubisoft, and live high-on-the-hog for the rest of your days. Fire Aubrey, and tell him to go back to cake baking, or w/e he did before wolfire. There. I just saved you from years of ridicule, and got your game a 9.5/10 on IGN.

btw, how did you and aubrey meet?

That's very different from best game development potential. Which artists, writers, engineers did their masterpiece at that age?

I just wanted to mention that Aubrey has confirmed his intention to join us on the next episode on January 11, 2015. If you have any specific questions you would like to ask him, you can do so by specifying your question(s) here. :)

moooar questions!
-this metagame you talked about, will this be a cool screen to select the levels or will it actually have a meaning? and if so, can one still finish the game when completely sucking at it?
[email protected] did you ever consider having painted stuff in cutscenes (maybe animated as in the new shadow warrior) and/or will the comics be included in the game in any way?
-will you do more of that comic stuff?
-will the story be dark? will it have some kind of message? will turner die? *spoilers*
-do the easter eggs in og actually come from rabbits and will there come chickens out of it?

David -

do you have any plans on releasing references to the Overgrowth scripting language as well as the .xml files? to help us modders out?

Also I had an idea where static objects can have "sharp" edges (or even characters so wolves can truly have "sharp" claws and create wounds) like weapons but they can't be picked up of course.

For example, spikes at the bottom of a deep trench. They're stationary objects, unlike weapons, but have a sharpness map (a black and white image where black is dull, and white is razor sharp) which you can get stabbed by them if you fall on them.

Hey david,
Will you add some variationes (that word isn't to good is it?) to the attacks.
For example if you do a round house kick then sometimes you kick lower and sometimes higher.
And if you miss and hit a wall will you get any damage from kicking the wall instead of an enemy?

Since a bunch of people have been asking me about this lately: what are the plans for Overgrowth's price once the game is released?
Based on what I have heard so far, I'd say it stays at 30$, but quite a few guys seem to think that it is pretty much guaranteed that it will go up, since that's how Early Access usually works. It would be helpful to get an official statement about this to settles speculations once and for all.

just realised how cheap early access is. just buy early access games and wait for them to finish is a cheap way to get games
