I know, I know: The game will be better for the stuff that gets cut.

But please make a little video or some screenshots of the old van and the old Mansion and publish it after the game got released. (I assume there is temporary art there). It would be so nice so see early versions later.

I agree.

Good morning,
short and interesting podcast this week.
So, xbox porting is in progress and in middle January we should be able to start uploading our voice files for the voice mail! Yu-uuu!!
Will the voice files be accessed through the Internet during the game, or they will be included inside the game, as normal resource files?

Those Podcast reminds me so much about the conference call I have with the US about customers, aeging buckets, and overall past due..
I wish I could talk about games as well :D

I feel bad for Robert.

Robert Megone - Dec 16, 2015 at 05:09
Me too. :)

Hi, Robert. :-) Thank you for your comment!

Dear team:
Will you use an overlay filter on our answering machine recordings so that they sound 1987-telephonishâ„¢? Or will we have to provide this by ourselves?

Dear Thimble devs,
in what ways is this blog being useful to you now? Can we be more helpful with our comments and feedback?

To me, it's good fun, a way to enjoy the game in advance, and mostly to enjoy you as good people, it's really nice getting to know you. Thank you for this opportunity.

Reading your comments is very useful. We might not always respond, but we read them all and it does give us good insight into features or other aspects of the game you find important.

It was interesting to hear from people who wanted some form of fast travel. It's not a feature I'm prepared to add, but hearing about why you want it has given me some good ideas to hopefully solve the issues without it turning into watching a movie on fast-forward.

Stuff like this is very useful.

I think the blog also keeps us honest. We know you're expecting posts and information and it keeps us on our toes, much like a publisher would. We cant just crawl into our cave. We know you're watching, but in a good way.

"We know you're watching, but in a good way."

Yes, we are all looking good ;-)

So, Carlo, if you have any ideas, or any wish, or any anything, write here instead to Santa Claus!
What do you want more out of life?
...a "Lucano"! :-D

For those readers who do not mind seeing more rooms, there was a sewer image posted a couple of days ago at twitter:

Ah. Here, here! I got it! Ron's "Back to work!"... is a reference, right? To "A Pirate I Was Meant To Be" from "The Curse of Monkey Island", no? Still, need more proof...  ;)
