but there may come a day close to the end, when the darkness doesn’t even flee from day itself


Um...., more reference to the mysterious necromatic force attacking our world, huh?
Great interview, thanks!

This guy asks questions I didn't even know I had.

This was great stuff, packed full of useful info and great writing. Thanks to both of you! :D

Ah, "supplies critical at any given moment". That triggered a memory of a most awesome game, System Shock 2. Ammo was such a resource in the game, and you had to plan routes depending on how many/what type of foes you expected to cross along the way.

Everything about this game is sounding better by the moment, and I wasn't even that big of a fan in the first place. Now I'm patiently waiting to order.

We've been taught not to expect answers :lol: but I've got a question.

You say there isn't much character development. But does your 'Man with The Plan' (MTP?) start with any specific skills, ie carpentry, or is he an everyman?

Anyone can be a god beneath the moonlight, but who can be a hero?

tourist? will there be a turist class?
and will we see a score system with rates the result of a game? and maby even an online highscore?

are extra points awarded for picking a dull class or silly perks like analphabetism?

i know, this sounds stupid .. but than having the option to incrase the difficulty beyond sane levlels can massively incrase replay motivation if one can compare results with the results of other players.

Can you give us a round about number for:

the max size that your group can be
and
how many zombies attack on the final night?

According to Mecron, the player controls a main character and up to 3 sidekicks. More survivors (after being rescued) will most likely be found back at your base.

I thought that meant that on the missions you could take up to 3 with you but there were others that would remain behind at base.

Unlimited number can be left back at the base...only 3 come with. Remember though folks...you have less than a month before the dark wave breaks over your lil fort...its not like you can find thousands of people AND feed them in that time. :wink:
