Re: World scale and size morphing

I think the idea is kool but I have to agree with David, to pull that off and have it work in a satisfying way would likely require a whole team of dev's in order to have the proper mesh/polygon adjustment and on the fly texture/bump/shadow/real mapping converted from micro to macro realistically.

Re: Redwall-style riddles and puzzles

Sorry to be a bit late to the game on this thread but can one of you (or anyone really) explain or example a redwall style puzzle? I am a bit clueless on this. :)

Re: Great video game deals and sales - on now

Pretty awesome bundle. I already have more than half of that lineup so I will likely just passfor now. But it is well worth it for anyone that has not checked out those games. Lot of hidden gems!

Re: Mouse heroes! Can you recognize all of them?

Well the middle pair are the twins from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Movie. The last I think is the mouse from The Green Mile. The first arcade game I don't recognize.. so no idea :)

A GoaT goat? That's a terrific in-reference! :lol: If Seith can pull it off, in terms of size (b'cos all the animals we've seen so far seem to be to real-life scale... relative to each other) and a goat would be a colossus compared to a mouse. Even so, if it is doable, it would be fun as heck. ;) T...

@David- Burnout on the laptop eh? I am guessing Burnout: Paradise? I actually don't own that, but I did see a good bit of it on my friend's rig. I Like the fact it really made a big open explorable world to play in, though the fact they were straying away from the style and fun of the prior games bu...

Actually Hats would be a great collectible too, especially if you had the option to wear them, or put them on a wall/hat rack in your den as a sort of 'trophy case' :) Even better if the various hats had a slight added effect when worn, and made the mouse either glow a vague aura, or possibly just c...

Re: Music is somehow at the core of the game

I like the idea that back in the day (and by the day i mean long long ago) Minstrels were there to travel and pass along local folklore, bring news and music and art to different areas. They sort of brought a certain amount of color and inspiration to the lands through song and story and dance. I do...

Hoo that's a hard one. My moods change so often that I don't stick with a game for too long and swap back and forth. Likely why I don't always finish games.

Collectibles In Game

What might you enjoy seeing as collectibles in the game? Should it have one large collection or a few smaller ones to unlock possible items/abilities/steam achievements? A lot of games have this, and sometimes it feels ham-fisted and artificially injected into the game. But if it feels like a natur...

@EvilKing... Seith did 2D animation for The Road to El Dorado and The Prince of Egypt (both for Dreamworks) way back before he moved to doing 3D. So its a good bet that he could, theoretically, draw and paint a collector's edition poster as you suggest ;) Ha awesome. I had no idea so that is great ...

This is a dual-definition question. For those who have registered and come to the forums, where are you from (geographically)?

Re: Go wild with your ideas and suggestions!

Sky is the limit! :) I will say so far everyone has been really encouraging and nice about suggestions, (no flaming or trolling at all) so even if it seems totally outlandish, bonkers, epic or insane.. I'd say toss it out there as it may inspire Seith and his folks to do stuff never imagined.
