      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. I was trying to hold off on playing it until the full release but the last team stream looked so fun I broke down and installed the beta.

    I've been watching the teamstreams so I kinda knew how to play but I'm not doing very well. I started my game on normal, non-IRON mode. But I've been playing like I am in IRON mode. I only have one save file, I haven't reloaded and I'm getting my ass kicked. I've had three full team wipes and I'm not even to year 75. I can't believe I haven't lost yet. For one battle, I didn't even have enough heroes for a full squad. So I went in with 3. This game is pretty brutal.

    I think the tutorials are great to show you the combat basics but now that I'm 70 years in, I'm wishing I had more guidance on how to manage my kingdom (some help on the strategy layer would be nice). I don't want the game to tell me what to do but it would be helpful if it offered a couple of good suggestions about what to research next. My poor decisions on the strategy layer will ultimately decide my fate. I'll be shocked if I make it to year 100.

  2. Have you guys discussed any VoiceOver stuff? It would be pretty cool if the base itself had its own personality. Something like a calm, woman's voice (with a slight echo) that announces major events. Things like: Hull breach detected. Or: Core temperature is elevated. Maintenance required. Or: Five minutes until self destruct.

    Too much work for a prototype?
