Questions, Questions, Questions.....

Hello Everyone,

This extra long pause was brought to you by a lot of things we'll collectively call “Murphy”. We sincerely hope we won't hit another spot like that again, for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the silence you all hear in the absence.

So previously we've talked about where we've been, what we're working on, started updating some of the information on the site to reflect advances and the like. We've even started talking about some of the focuses we're taking with the game. This month we'd like to take a moment to focus on feedback.

In any gaming experience the feedback from the player is pretty essential. At first there was mostly just a dollar feedback for game producers, but now we've advanced to a point where players can interact directly with the developers and producers of games very easily and quickly. Layonara is no different and has opened up various channels over the years to have contact with our community.

For now, there aren't a lot of things we're comfortable directly answering about the game because there's so much work we're doing and pushing our way through to find the best ways to bring our vision to reality. This doesn't mean we don't want to hear from you, our community of players, about the project. We're going to open up a questions thread where you guys are free to post your questions about the game. What we can and can't answer will vary but we will have that thread to fall back on over the development process and, if it makes sense to do so, we'll answer some of those lingering questions people have had. In some cases we may even turn a question from the thread into a whole Development Log posting to give you your answer(s).

I want to clarify that this isn't a features request thread, or a place where you can register your ideas for the MMO. If we ever open up something like that, it would be completely separate. This is strictly for questions related to what we are or aren't doing in some respect. Maybe you have questions about how the skills work or what a certain type of spell usage really means. Maybe you're wondering about our approach to customer service (such as character applications) once the game is released. Did a hint get dropped somewhere that you're wondering about the full meaning of? There are plenty of questions that have been asked of us over the years, but not a very good spot to track them and eventually (possibly) answer them. So here you go! A place we'll track those with you guys and hopefully get to start to answer some of those lingering questions.

Let us know your musings/questions in the thread (found here) and hopefully we can tackle some of your questions over the coming months!
