    This should get me through the next couple days, but after that I'm sure the shakes will come back. Thanks for posting!

    The fact that they are increasing internal testing can only be a good thing. One step closer to Pre-Alpha.

    Just had a chance to take a listen to this. Really interesting topic. You know when I was growing up I remember reading articles in old gamer magizines like GamePro and stuff abut how to et into the business. At one point as a young teenager I thought I might want to do it. Life took me in a different direction (construction to engineering to locksmith), but I always thought it would be in that business. My only concern was as a gamer did I really want to see behind the curtain?

    That's a good point.  You might be a part of making the best game, but can you enjoy it as much if you know everything about how it works?  I'm guessing there's as much enjoyment or more, just different.  It's like if you were playing a major character in The Last Jedi.  Seeing the finished film for the first time wouldn't be the same experience as it will be for someone that wasn't involved, but I'm sure there is more than enough cool shirt to make up for it.

    I’ve thought about this a few times during my time on this project,  You’re right, the experience will be different for me, but it’s worth it.  I haven't lost my passion as a player that has that burning desire for a game like Pantheon to exist.  Can't wait to play the live version with everyone.:-)   The added bonus to all this is obviously being creative and working on the game.  I really enjoy that process.

    Just watched this. It's interesting to hear about the experience and perspectives from these points of view. Onion-skinning the process and development really helps me to understand how dynamic it is and also to gain insight into what if means for those that are so intimate with the project. Thanks for sharing the podcast, I enjoyed it.

    Very good to have you on the project, Convo -- nice to add another player into the mix who has long term credibility and investment in not just this game, but the genre as a whole.

    Convo, you sissy. Now there is no voice of reason in the FoH Pantheon thread! Nice shout out to Utnayan on the stream though.  Good luck in your testing and associate designer positions though. Im definitely jealous.

    A little late to this, but really enjoyed hearing the pod.

     

    Have to admire his dedication, but more importantly how he understood the importance of adding value, while respecting what is already there.
