    No, it was cut.

    It was called "Oom", formerly known as the Toy during the Kickstarter. It has very few hits in the beta's files, mostly "what do you think of Oom?" with no answer.

    Party banter:

    [Oom twists his head slightly and looks a you curiously.]

    i give very few fucks whether the objectives in the beta will be changed in the mandatory mid or endgame plot twist when the first part of the story is so insanely terrible that it doesn't make me want to go on and reach the mandatory plot twist

    Meaning it was confirmed it won't be in the final game? If yes, why? Too confusing for their target audience?

    Has somebody (Avellone?) told you this or are you assuming based on what you see in beta files?

    I think the point in that picture was the Pledge Any Amount button. Blaine is sad he can't afford to pledge more.

    Oh, I stopped years ago when the shitshows started to roll off the assembly line. I learned my lesson with WL2 and PoE. T:ToN might actually have been my last substantial pledge. I doubt I'll donate to any crowdfunding campaign again.

    No, in-game backer inserts, NPCs, portraits, and memorials are cancer. I went for the art print instead.

    They cut one of their own stretch goals (not to mention - just about the only companion, apart from MCA's, of course, I was looking forward to)?

    Real classy, inXile.

    What a boring quest for them to show-off...

    It basically resolves to a couple of skill checks and a straight up fight with the monster.

    Alpha and beta files. Both Oom and Riastrad (another cut companion) were supposed to appear in Sagus Cliffs, and they had a ton of mentions and files removed from alpha to beta. Also the devs haven't mentioned "nine companions" since 2015.

    Try asking one of the devs about on Twitter? I've created a thread on their forums.

    Some people, eh? :lol: You should've included Riastrad. He's even more likely to have been cut.

    Not sure if I've posted this before, but spoilers in case he wasn't cut:

    Show Spoiler
    Riastrad was a castoff that was basically liquid metal armour, with a female ghost companion called Satsada.
    This was from the quest in which you were supposed to recruit him, I believe:

    So apparently there will be a retail physical Collector's Edition in stores which will be less expensive...and have more stuff in it than the backers' CE. :lol:

    Fuck me for giving money to Sleezy Fargo. :negative:
    Say what you will about Obsidian and Josh but they're honest guys who delivered everything that was promised when it comes to scope (quality is certainly up to discussion). With Sleezy Fargo, Nazi Beeckers and that faggot sea you just can't help but feel screwed over again and again.

    That's something I wouldn't have minded much before, really. I can see the reasoning that when backing you backed more to help the game being made than to get stuff. But they've pissed me off too much lately to be so understanding.

    Regardless, I wish the game would so great that would make want to buy one too. If it turns out poorly, then whatever, I won't really care what I get anyway and maybe I can sell it. Though I'm trying to get rid of my W2 collector's edition with no success so maybe not.

    inb4 corporate standardized answer which states it wasn't really cut, but folded into other things, so it's exactly as if it was there. All to provide the best experience, of course.
