lovedvault said: Hi Edmund, i remember you saying that Isaac art was a big rush, and you weren't satisfied of it. Bug taking a look at Mew-Genics, the global design is quite similar. So aren't you happy with Mew neither, or do you consider that this style is more appropriate for cats ?

mews art is intentionally lazy looking (but not actually lazy in terms of drawing) so its more of a style.. isaac was me drawing as fast as possible without caring how it looked. 

it takes a lot to draw like a child in a way that looks good :)

ill probably always do my art in flash… but i doubt ill use it for anything but prototypes 

kingfoobeezoobee said: Firstly, the thanks (there are many). I wanted to thank you for creating an amazing world that I just loved. I would even get trouble during school for drawing Meat Boy running around my worksheets, fighting Dr. Fetus, and sometimes even fighting the Mario Bros (Kind of a wordplay sort of thing... you know, SMB vs SMB.) Anyway, enough of my praisings, I'm sure you've heard enough from other fans. My main question was, ever think of porting Super Meat Boy to Vita?

no.. but a new meat boy on vita isnt out of the question

dick-smashworth said: Since the Luck stat was so messed up and hard to understand in the original Isaac, is Cain going to play very differently now that it's all fixed?

yes, since the luck stat has improved greatly we actually had to take down his pill identification aspect..

i tried to move away once.. it was horrible. i also live in hayward when i was young… that also sucked i got the hell bullied out of me where ever i went.

santa cruz is actually a pretty amazing place, ill never leave.

thejoker1439 said: When Rebirth is released will you be talking about the things you couldn't talk about / didn't want to spoil or will you give more time to let the players find those thing on their own along side the wiki?

ill let the players map out the details :)

clanes said: I found my backup drive which contained the OST to Time Fcuk in there. And that reminded me of the Q&A you did with Danielle. And the whole thing about what you called the box. I've been worrying about me being in the self-imposed box for a long time. But hearing it in words with how you described it is really making me think and steady on track. It made me not feel bad for wanting to take time to decide what I want to do for a career that I actually would enjoy sticking with.

im glad something i may have said could be useful :)

boxes are hard to get out of sometimes.. once you get out you usually find you are still inside a larger one. 

freezenification said: One console related question I feel is on a lot of people's minds that didn't get answered in the latest blog post: will there be region restrictions at launch for the PSN release? We in the EU still don't have 1001 Spikes, and I was wondering if it'd be the same with Rebirth? Obviously Steam will still be an option but I want the portability of the Vita.

thats something you should ask tyrone on twitter because i have no idea.. pretty sure we have ratings in EU so it should come out there easily.. the only bumps in the road with ratings so far have been with australia
