First and foremost, a short update on the Labradors. They feel good and healthy and are starting to look and, most importantly, behave as we want them to. We’re adding some final touches and tweaks with the intention of releasing them next week!
If you want to see the Labrador retrievers in action, make sure you pop by our pre-release livestream tonight at 19:00 CEST, on this Twitch channel. Our popular and much-loved YouTubers Pratze and ronMctube will be joined by our game designer Pär, who will be able to answer your questions. We hope you’ll be able to make it.
While you’re waiting for dogs, we thought we would revisit a rather old chestnut.
One of the most debated topics in our community is the “realism” aspect of theHunter – whether we should focus on being as realistic as possible, or whether realism should take a back seat so the gameplay can remain fun. Followers of both sides are rather vocal and have been known to fight tirelessly about it. So, we think the only reasonable way to publicly settle this once and for all is to stage a debate. We asked two community members, representing both camps, to be debate the subject and they gladly accepted. The debatable motion will be “theHunter should be developed with the main focus on realism, with fun as a by-product”. Knut will represent the assenting side, speaking on behalf of realism, with TundraPuppy representing fun gameplay. You can follow the debate in this forum thread, which will last for 2 weeks. Everyone is welcome, and in face encouraged, to pitch in! At the end the winner of the debate will be determined by public voting.
That’s it from us for today, until next week – happy hunting!
