That's a bit of honesty from a dev. Perhaps more than I needed to know, and certainly more than I wanted to know. "I got a serious infection" would have been sufficient, me thinks.

Well, the bit about being absent at crucial moment of the production was quite important, I think.

Right. In other words, "I got a serious infection, which resulted in me being absent at a crucial moment." No other info required.

Note that Markland was specifically asked what the antibiotic was for....

I guess you're right. He clearly had no choice but to tell everyone all the details, because, someone asked him a specific question. It sucks getting backed into a corner like that! :P

Don't be such a drama queen. It clearly wasn't all the details. ;)

The problem isn't how much was said, but when.

inXile learned a lot from this project. Sadly, the project itself suffered as the price for that knowledge. I doubt, that Last Castoff's story could be told again for the first time, but I do hope, that - like Obsidian - inXile would turn that experience into other great games, using the same engine and ruleset.

Maybe, some other story set in Numenera. Or maybe something completely different.

I loved, how Tyranny was small, yet managed to tell a very good and satisfying story.

Bah, not all the details. Just more than were necessary. Just my opinion. I don't think I"m being dramatic for mentioning it. I guess we could go back to the forum having no conversations if that suits ya'll better.

Okay.

Unless there's a conversations, that can change anything, I'm completely chill with the silence.

Has InXile learned, though?

It's been two years since the Bard's Tale 4 crowdfunding campaign ended, and they've had very little to show for it. Their interaction with the community isn't improving, it's getting worse.

I do agree that inXile hasn't increased the volume of their communication, but they are more careful about making promises they can't reasonably keep. And that's a good thing all around.
