I'm really liking all these new items, and I have a (somewhat) related question. Is the description of the item you've been showing us (the one that shows an image, says the visual, then the effect) actually ingame, or is it just how you're presenting the preview?
thats my “design doc” for rebirth. its what i send to the guys so they can make the items in game.
Hey Ed, I'm sure this has been asked before, but when Rebirth is released will you also release the soundtrack? I've listened to all the new songs and so far I love em all. It would be great night driving music :)
The single tear power-up.... I'm 37 years old... and you showing that power-up made me feel like I was 15 years old reading about Zelda 3 in EGM. Thanks for creating the only games that take me on a trip to how I felt when I was kid, back when I was excited about games.
Is it possible for Rebirth to be out before the end of May?
what the fuck is wrong with you people… why would i not announce a release date for a game coming out in a month? why wouldnt SONY announce it… you will know the games release date when its getting closer to its release.
What are your thoughts/opinions on the cancellation of FEZ II and have you had any contact with Phil Fish since?
ive talked to phil a few times since then and as far as my thought on whatever went down back then… the idea people have of phil and who phil actually is are 2 different things.. in fact the same goes for myself tommy and most anyone else who has a public persona.
not saying the people are playing roles or acting, but the public interpenetration of all of us is quite different than the people we actually are… most of what people think they see is an illission based on the opinions of others.
So with all the references to your other games in the BoI, should we then assume that they Isaac exists in the same universe as Meat Boy and Steven and all of them, or did he just play a bunch of your games and they turned into nightmare food?
they all exist in the same universe known as my brains
Have you heard about the balls of steel tournemeant? the one where the first goto sheol and then the chest in one round of racing? if so what are your thoughts on it? are there going to be any way besides seeded runs in which the play can race optimaly?
Was Binding of Isaac's comic gruesomeness an intention from the start, or was it a visual theme that just developed as you made the game (for example, through the mood you were in whilst drawing the characters)? The repulsive enemies, the bosses names (namely the ones after diseases), the fact the main character's weapon is his tears, where did the ideas start? (huge fan by the way, I find it amazing that one of my favourite games ever was a game that was made to fail by its creator!)
if you look through my old work you will see a theme that is very up front and center in isaac.. so yes it was all planned from the start.. but mostly because its simply my style
Could you announce on here when you and/or Danielle are going on Twitch?
i like to keep the assholes out of her room so i never tweet or blog when shes live.. if you follow her you will know when we are on.. but i like the small group of people who tend to watch so i doubt ill post it here
i get the feeling you probably like redlettermedia, as you share their feelings towards genuine bad movies where the person did the best they could. As such, do i disregard counting up the movies they saw and placed in such category, or was i wrong and you don't follow their work?
oh i watch every show, ive seen most of the ones they watch and usually share their opinions :)
In Mewgenics, if you breed a cat with an unwanted gene or infectious disease, is there a way to get rid of it (selling it, throwing it away, euthanasia) straight away? If there is, is there a way to stop it being exploited so you never keep a "bad" cat for more than a few seconds?
What was the inspiration for the names of the different planets in Aether? Are they based on anything at all?
they were all based on words that tied to the planet… i made it with tyler in 14 days so its all a blur… i know debasa was a play on the word debase, bibulon was a play on bibulous that one means to drink or an alcoholic, malaisus is a play on malaise.. i think it means becoming sick or feeling ill. Gravidia was a play on gravida i believe it means pregnancy…. id like to work on this game again :)
Will Mew-G have any online features, like Steam Workshop, trading cats with friends, or multiplayer competitions? I think it would be neat to be able to make clones of other people's cats, perhaps as an endgame feature so game balance is safe.
What determines what moves a cat has? Are they random or do you teach them?
their stats effect what moves they CAN aquire.. like a fat cat can learn fat cat moves. all basic moves will be randomly aquired at birth, but all the advanced or special moves can only be acquired by feeding your cat specific things you buy from butch… these things are usually pieces of other animals or cats…
finalize all the new bosses, add all the new playable characters, add the new rooms/floors, add multiplayer, add cut scenes, add challanges, design all the new rooms and whatever else needs to be done.
we have a bit to go, but the bulk of the game is finished its just adding the new content
In Rebirth, will the basic room layout stay as it was in the old version? I think it would be awesome for the procedural generator to be able to diffentiate between the possible layouts of 2, 3 or 4 doors. Also, please add on/off-Spikes to the mix ;)
this is something simon has added to the level editor that does change a few ways i design levels and its pretty awesome :)
