What will your next update include? You have talked about a lot of stuff on twitter since you updated last.

I was using the map editor and when I set a reinforcement for a guy the counter for how many turns it would take for one to come back it didn't go away. Please can you fix this?

We do have a BUGLIST. Just thought I'd let you know.

Hey, I'm a long-time fan, and finally decided to join the forums.

Anyway, on to the question: Will any TRPG or TPA game include the ability to play as a main who isn't a psy fighter, or even a human? I've often wanted to try playing as an archer or fighter, or even a Shadowling Enforcer.

TPA2 did, so I, who am not Craig, don't see why not in the future.

Welcome to the forums! And yes--the next couple of games I have planned involve you playing someone who isn't a psy fighter.

Great! I'll check out the demo, and I'll be looking forward to those new games!

One more question though: How grind-heavy is SoG going to be? My main problem with TRPG2 was that the climax sort of got ruined, because you had to train for hours before you could beat the final battle. I've played the demo, and it has some grinding, but what about the rest of the game?

Do you think you'll ever create a Telepath Psy Arena typed game for iPod/iPhone/iPad?

You mean an iPhone/Android game? I've thought about it. I don't have any firm plans to do so yet, however.

On the "Normal" difficulty level, I was able to beat TRPG2 with little grinding. However, if you don't want to have any deaths in your team or if you're playing on higher difficulty levels, grinding may be necessary (or perhaps not, one member said in the old forums that he was able to beat TRPG2 without grinding -- I'll have to try it someday).

My goal with TSoG is for it to be beatable without any grinding. It might be difficult; it might require some strategy; and it might require you to rethink the order in which you approach certain tasks, but I want that to be possible. I've gone back in and adjusted enemy stats downwards several times during development specifically for that reason.

If you ever think a mission is not doable without grinding, I want to hear about it.

Has Lake Alto been de-mined by the time of TSoG?

Craig's working on the full game now, so the chances of the downloadable demo being updated are between slim and none.
