    Yeah, the stuff they did on that POE engine is amazing. Honestly I think that Tyranny is a better looking game than Deadfire, but that's just because I like that it did something different from the usual high fantasy stuff.

    I think that Death Trash ( http://www.deathtrash.com/ ) and Disco Elysium are currently my 2 favorite isometric games for the unique 'look' they have.

    Other way around, he was an art intern in the early days and has been living off Kasparov's work ever since. True story

    Since Kasparov rated this 'citation needed' I'll expound.

    Will skill checks always be the premium way to handle encounters and situations? Or sometimes will a non-skill check dialogue option be a good course of action as well. In other words, if you have high skills will those options always be the best way to handle a situation?

    I disagree on this - there is ALWAYS the shortage of talented and REAL artists. ALWAYS.

    You can't just TURN into such artist - you need to work on this matter in order to be such artist.
    To work where and on what projects - if there is no demand for such work?

    Which movie is it?

    Are they?

    The smaller sect is, the stronger beliefs.

    If so I will kick some asses.

    Well shot my friend!

    Absolutely disagree - second looks to me like what it turned out to be from the first minute I heard about it - the game that not even a shadow of P:T, and the reasons are absolutelu objective and are in how culture and art works. The reason P:T happen to be a game it is wasn't because Avellon wanted to make game "like game X before",
    so when I saw this bullshit "spiritual successor" words I knew it will be shit - like PoE was shit for similiar reasons.
    As for SC - I never was excited by it, and the more time passed, the more cautious I was.

    On the other hand, three years ago I expected from No Truce with th Furies exactly what we seeing todayfrom Disco Elysium - at least from articles, devblog and trailers.
    Nothing changes even a bit, same picture and impressions.

    Yeah it is remarkable how well it has maintained focus. It’s just gotten a LOT bigger in the interim.

    Actually if you have any character/costume design questions then it is Rostov’s brain that needs to be picked. I worked on only a handful of those and focused on environments and props.
    I would assume he’s aware of Gosha.

    I’m not sure I get your question 100%, but that might be because DE skills and checks work differently than how most cRPGs have used them. Or I might be an idiot – that’s never off the table.

    Your interactions with the world often include passive checks that lead to dialogue options. Without looking at any one encounter I think you could say that it’s not the only way, but if you want your character to have a say in the outcome, then often you’re looking at a skill check.

    If they weren't we wouldn't have seen disco communism. If they were in to the money aspect,they would have made some artsy fartsy horror game for steam. RPGs are very niche product that non fans won't be trying to make.

    I love the art style. Kind of painterly with a contrast of precise and deliberately loose "brushstrokes".

    Is there a term for it?

    (Reminds me a bit of Guild Wars 2, but more pronounced.)

    The term is Incline, my good man. Incline. I will now refer to this game as Disco Incline. That is all.
