There are no secrets in this post. So scrutinizing this post would probably be a waste of your time. Probably. (But really, there is nothing to find here. You'll know when there is something to be found.) 

You can't just tell us something like that and expect us to not overthink literally everything said so far.

Also the file name for the teaser is literally "whocoulditbe_bg.png"...I dunno guys...I think we're being baited.:wilson_curious:

More new content is almost always a good thing, and I welcome there being more to play around with.

But yes, I do agree that nothing really stands out as being worth a lot of hype. The roadmap this year is basically identical to last year's one. There isn't even that much to work with from the post; I think most of us could've guessed there would be more refreshes and maybe more new (slash ported) characters. I was looking forward to know more specifics: what character's rework came next, or maybe some more details about the next additional character.

Oh well. Looking forward to it anyways.

Well, most people voting in recent polls pointed at Wendy as "next desired rework of a character" so is no wonder, when looking at that preview image, it might very well be from a trailer (more heavy on le lore front this time around) or bg promo-image of Wendy and Abigail - Klei listened you, Wendy mains :encouragement:

The Abi-like flower-decoration on the porch was a nice touch ofc.

Think about it, in the roadmap image we have Wolfgang, Wilson and Wendy, now in the previous cast on the Lunar island was Wilson, Winona and Wigfrid. Winona got the refresh, and Wigfrid was just along for the ride.

 

Wolfgang's just a red herring, Wendy's the next one up on the chopping block. I really hope they don't change her too much though, this my main we're talking about here. :wilson_worried:

Edit: Also, no hidden messages in the images as far as I can tell.

Yeah, I know.

I do understand complications in deliveries, but when things were delayed, we really didn't get any sort of explanation, we were kept in the dark, I always wondered what Klei was exactly doing during that time that justifies the delays or the failed promises, but nothing was said really iirc.
I just want the best for the game, and this roadmap as a concept seems fair.

I really do hope Klei gets more responsible this time. Refresh is obviously Wendy.

Wendy and Abigal having a picnic, Wendy’s flower blows out of her hair and Abigail carelessly chases after it, unaware she just walked off the cliffside, Wendy reaches out to try and save her Sister only managing to grab her flower as she tries but it is too late, she falls over the cliffside.

The End.

~~Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die-ie...~~

(sorry.  But seriously, that's exactly the thing the "Dumb Ways to Die" commercial was first talking about--going to get your flying away thing over a dangerous area.  If your balloon goes over the train tracks, LEAVE THE BALLOON!  Similarly, if your flower goes over/near a cliff, be like Elsa and let it go.  _There are more flowers_.  Many of them right in the picture!)  

I WANT that forking house, by the way.  Wow.  But...a cliffside dwelling (most likely a summer-home only; the family that owns that would probably be the type that's wealthy enough to "summer" or "winter" somewhere nice with a completely seperate house just for that purpose) with no walls or fences?  WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?  I don't even build _Sims_ beach houses on a landscape like that without a wall around the cliff edge--and I know full well they're not programmingly CAPABLE of falling off edges!  : P

Now, lemme try my hand at this nursery-rhyme business:

Two little girls went up a hill
To pick some lovely flowers
One fell away right into the bay
And the other fell into a lifetime of clinical depression that's obviously untreated and needs a professional diagnosis from a specialist.

Whenever new lore is teased, I am simultaneously super excited and absolutely terrified. Nothing official has contradicted my headcanon yet. Will this finally be the time that it does? Or will it fit in perfectly and be amazing?

Anyway, you're great, Klei, for adding all this new stuff to the game for free, and I'm looking forward to all of the new stuff! ...as long as you leave Wilson as he is, please; he's so wonderful and I love him just the way he is, please don't give us any more backstory for him, he already has an origin video, I don't mind a little refresh if you really think it's necessary but don't tell us anything else about his backstory, please...

Oh, and not for nothing, we took great strides in console support. We didn't always hit the mark, but most everything we can control directly has been working out quite well over the past year or so. We will continue improving console support as best we can through 2020. 

It was a wonderful year for the consoles, I am already a fan of the work they have done for years, and I can say that 2019 was the best year for us, you did an incredible job and I will always be grateful, congratulations to all, and know that we believe very much in  potential they have!

@JoeW @JanH @CharlesB @PeterA @bizziboi @ScottHansen

everyone was somehow part of the incredible year that was 2019 for the consoles, thanks and a hug directly from Brazil to everyone!

What we're doing in 2020

We're going to continue with generally the same plan as last year. More character refreshes and content. However, at this time we aren't going to commit to a specific number of new characters. While the new characters were very well received and successful in selling well enough to help fund development we also don't want to add new characters just for the sake of it. With that being said we are currently in the process of creating at least one entirely new character for the future and we will have more information about them as we get closer to release. 

Guys, I think I am onto something...

Please do not kill me.

But I am not super excited for this roadmap.

They didn't follow through the 2019 road map at all, really.

They said 4 brand new characters, we pretty much got 2 (wurt and wortox)
They said a refresh every month, we got 4 refreshes (warly winona woodie willow)

And a port (wormwood)

They are backtracking on the fact that Warly was not a new character but instead a refresh (they stated this originally.)

I don't really see a reason to be that excited..? They barely even announced anything this time so I'm hoping that means they aren't going to set expectations unreasonably high like before and not follow through.

 

But my worry is it just means we will be getting even less this year

First off, You are not wrong... But they also delivered a lot of stuff that they didn't talk about. And Wormwood still counts as a NEW character for DST, as-well as Warly since he actually is nothing a like in DST (even if this one was mentioned as a refresh). If you don't like them, or you played them in single-player, doesnt matter, they were still NEW for DST.

We had the most content ever within a Year, even if you don't like what you got, it was the most we had specially in the last 3 years. 

You people need to stop just looking for what they got wrong and also give some credits to what they did right. The concurrent playerbase speaks for itself but i guess you decide to ignore that.

I'm the first one to say that i still hoped for more specially from the RoT updates, but just because i didn't like them as much as i enjoyed the last 3 patches of ANR back in the day, doesnt mean they were not content, and with some completely different new mechanics that probably takes more time to develop.

They just stated that they going to push content every month and here you are saying will be less than this year. Maybe you are the one with too high of expectations. As someone who didnt stop playing this game even during the almost 3 year of content drought, i loved last year and i'm even more excited for this one, If they make a patch every month it will be a first, and it will be huge.

Always look on the bright side of life.

this isn't really a roadmap . . . all they're actually saying is they're going to continue what they've been doing , update the game every month or so , and they're ' aware ' that lore and base game updates are wanted

that's not a roadmap , there's no destinations or dates of arrival . this is basically just a super vague devlog . i honestly don't know any more about the games future having read this other than it's not dead , which i generally already knew

Perfect! Now I'm sure no unsuspecting child, specifically a twin sister, will never fall and die and drive their twin into an unstable depression! :^) .....Right?
