No idea. I only know that Arkane Studios are Frenchies who did Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah before doing Dishonored, and that they have been advised artistically by Harvey Smith (Deus Ex, System Shock, Thief Deadly Shadows), and that they've had Stepehn Russell as voice actor for some of their games (Arx Fatalis, Dishonored 2, Prey). So, lot of overlap to the Thief games and others.

Thinking of game-related free stuff, if you've not played Last of Us (or even if you have) then make sure you watch the full movie on youtube (I downloaded it with 4K downloader.) A wonderful 6-hour movie of tolerable resolution (1280 x 720).

I found the original gameplay so frustrating I almost gave up several times and only the drama of the story kept me going. I said to myself at the time that I'd rather watch it as a movie. In fact the game feels less like a game and more like you're an actor being directed how to play each scene and every time you get it wrong he shouts 'Cut!' and you have to act it out again from the last checkpoint.

But the movie flows wonderfully. :)

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

We have been spoiled by the earlier Epic Store freebies. I found the last year or so of freebies there pretty disappointing.

I won't complain though. If I take a look at my Epic library, which consists solely of free games, there are games which I would have paid total of 500 € for on Steam... Including some games for which I actually paid 59 € on Steam when I bought them shortly after released.

Comments say it's just a demo, hence "first day". Trailer looks cool though.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?
