Hi Sinister Design. There is a Steam deal with Defender's Quest today. Then I remembered I was entitled to receive this game and its music as a backer. Should I let the deal pass or may I receive something soon? I have been waiting for a long time.
Anyway, Telepath tactics is great! Thanks in advance.

How fluently can you speak lissit?

Any tips for learning it in-depth?

What, like, IRL? I mean, I don't speak it or anything--no one would understand what I was saying! I just use it for writing some of the lissit dialog in the game. ;)

If you want to learn to speak it regardless, I guess you could practice writing out grammatically correct sentences and then practice pronouncing them correctly. (It'd probably be easier if you did it collaboratively with other people, though, so you could actually start to converse at some point.)

All the more reason to learn speaking it! The only person who'd know you're insulting someone's mother would be you!

How likely is it that Telepath Tactics will be released on May 23rd?

You mean, finished and released? Zero percent.

Low; the current plan is to release it sometime this winter.

Do Last Branch reply types chain together? Does it keep track of which specific path a dialog takes?

Yes. If a branch can be reached by different routes, LastBranch will always take account of the particular series of branches the player used to reach it.

So if I were to put a generic "Never mind" reply with a type of "LastBranch" in every branch of a set of dialogue, it would eventually lead me back to the dialogue's origin? Interesting...
