    can't you, like, contrast the colours on the tablet thing, so the engraved parts with stuff happenin are darker relative to the empty space parts, or have the inside of the faces (or the swirly nothing-parts) for eg. be darker like someone burned that part (like you would with wood) but its not completely black, just with blacker outlines. So varying degrees of black and grey, and woody-peach to accentuate the parts where stuff is happening on the tablet, and may be make the swirly parts where nothin is happening have tiny hints of mossy-greenish cause its an old tablet, but just enough so you can more easily separate different scenes. Stuff like that could make it easier to watch. Or just mess with colour/brightness settings in a video-editing program.

    Or make all empty space darker and keep the inside of people, swirls, and things the same. Separation between empty space and objects in a scene seem like a must.

    Personally I dont mind the dizzyiness aspect, cause the idea is cool enough for me to suffer through it. I know this is old but my suggestions seem obvious but no one said anything before.

    Probably worth trying some of this stuff out. At this point, I have bigger fish to fry, though. :D (Like coding, art, writing, etc.)

    I can't imagine that anyone can make it through my slow, dull speech, but SilverSpook interviewed me about various topics, and I talked a little bit about Fallen Gods:



    SilverSpook's frogs lend the thing an uncanny quality. You can also hear my scandalous butchering of a Polish team member's name.

    Front page on the Watch, which also showered love on TTON and put Primordia on its curated Steam list. Why do I even bother with you rascals? :argh:

    EDIT: I see that I should've checked the front page. Maybe you're good for something after all. :)

    Finally had the time to read the interview - very interesting! MRY's thoughts on RPGs overlap with mine to a scary extent, making me even more excited for Fallen Gods. :thumbsup:

    You shouldn't be too excited. Fallen Gods will depend a lot on the success of its design (as opposed to writing) and there's every reason to think I'll be worse at RPG design than at adventure design... and adventure design matters somewhat less because people have become so deadened to the genre's charms that they think the design is inherently bad.

    Ah, that's not as important, really. I'm excited, because the game sounds generally different. And you have ideas about itemization I like. ;)

    Infinitron somehow beat me to the punch posting my own update to my own thread. Truly, a world of woe.

    Thread should be titled "MRY desperately tries to convince Codex his next game will be garbage"

    Sorry buddy, not buying it.
