Cannibalism isn't just morbid, it's a taboo. Human bones are used for various purposes, such as medical education, by people who'd never consider eating human flesh.

Yes but those are much more reserved and ethical purposes for human bones. There's a large gap between using a cadaver to teach medicine, and using human bones to line your coat or fertilize your crops.

Cannibalism is the more blatant act of macabre but, the ability to take dead players bones and use them for very base purposes is the exact same concept. People just do not react to the bones as much as they would the meat, but it is still the exact same idea.

 

Still would be fun to take peoples meat after they die. And then when they come back to pick up their items you hear

Hey who took my flesh?

 

Om nom nom.

Jokes aside, this Winona stuff is pretty exciting. I'm always up for seeing a new character, though if it turns out to be a prank or a fake, i won't be too bothered. For the time being, i'm going to pretend that Winona isn't making it into the game so i can be surprised later.

As I posted in the other thread, the Factory & Clockwork references seem to be referencing Voxola, where Robert Wagstaff worked. Theoretically they made WX-78, and are confirmed to have made the Radio seen in Forbidden Knowledge/Divining Rod - Thus, it's not a stretch to believe they made Clockwork, too & their links to the DS world are hardly a stretch.

 

get hyped bois

Where did you find information about Voxola and Robert Wagstaff? I've never heard these names!

If Winona is Charlie's sister, no wonder she knows Charlie so much, knows about losing a sister and feels a bit more relaxed than the others (Since pretty much Charlie's watching). She could dodge Charlie because she knows a lot about her, she is probably the big sister, as she is not that afraid. (If this is true, Charlie was afraid of the dark, and potentially, still afraid of Them, even though she is the shadow monster)

That's what I think happened. What do you guys think?

Ah, so the leak wasn't contained. Oh well, I tried. Anyway here's what I've found interesting.

            UNLOCKED = "Is... this how the bossman disappeared?",
        },
        DIVININGRODSTART = "I'm probably one of the few left that knows how to use these.",

The more I read, the more it almost seems almost too good to be true. Connections with Charlie and Wagstaff? Small world I guess. It would make sense that they are entwined with existing lore, but dang. The name Winona even means "firstborn daughter".

I don't see any other character mention this:

Also this is a thing.

Unless for some reason the developers are not being literal, this pretty much explains it. Only question is in what way has this been balanced to not be ridiculous. Or have they just accepted how overpowered most characters are.

Well I don't know where they've all been mentioned then. Could you link me to where the "UNLOCK" is mentioned? It's probably what interests me the most, since it doesn't outright allude to something.

Oh yeah a discord im in is how i found out about the tape and the unlock.

Another really interesting thing is, she has a quote for a struggling muse piece. Everyone else do too, implying that either a shadow queen piece was planned, or, it's coming.

And the most intriguing line imo is: 

ANNOUNCE_ATRIUM_DESTABILIZING = 
    {
        "Something's happening to this place.",
        "Now what?!",
        "Let's not stick around for the fight!",

Explained it already, Klei is a business. It is one thing to make a joke about adding a potato cup to the store; but making a joke about adding a serious, convincing content update to the game. Complete with authentic dialogue strings for the entire character.

That's an idiotic, immature and unethical way to toy with your fanatic base; who also happens to be your customers. Loyal customers still playing your sandbox game after several years.

 

It's not like Guild Wars 2 teasing the Commando class during the pre-release. It was obviously a joke and the game was not even out yet. But Winona is extremely convincing and suitable to the game, and she would be a huge addition considering this is an indie game in the post-stages of its life. Some people may not be bothered by this if it turned out to be fake, but any people who actually become invested in the hype would be crushed. That's now how you manage a business, regardless of its size. That's just juvenile.

So if YOU explain it, it's automatically the law?

You're forgetting that WE'RE the said customers who HAVE played the game for several years... and most of us are having a blast with this lore drop!

This game was the first game I bought on steam after years of piracy and since then, have never pirated a game... AT ALL O__O partly because this is almost all I play now apart from the other games that I can manage to squeeze in on the weekends

Also please do some more research on these things... if you didn't know already, Klei has been doing stuff like this and it makes us even more excited, mostly for the hype and the "what if they do add this" rather than get mad about something that we get for free... (they update and these updates are free :o )

One thing:

Think not of what will not be, but think of what could be... plus you're starting to bum everyone out with your self proclaimed inner knowledge of the inner workings of the devs unless ofcourse you are a dev who's messing with us in which case that would be:

Or maybe I'm just a fool...

I'm not usually like this... need more sleep to be nicer...

EDIT: Sorry if seems I'm yelling... not sorry for most of the sentiment though... but I could just be too heated and might end up getting a well-worded counter argument that will kick my post to the gutter...

It is called being objective. Perhaps some of the people here are all, buddy buddy with the developers. But that does not change the ramifications of their possible behavior. Yes, seriousness is often very unwelcome.

Also please do some more research on these things... if you didn't know already, Klei has been doing stuff like this and it makes us even more excited, mostly for the hype and the "what if they do add this" rather than get mad about something that we get for free... (they update and these updates are free :o )

One thing:

Think not of what will not be, but think of what could be... plus you're starting to bum everyone out with your self proclaimed inner knowledge of the inner workings of the devs unless ofcourse you are a dev who's messing with us in which case that would be:

The statement is referring to the hypothetical situation of this all being a highly elaborate and meaningless "joke" intended to convince the community a major update is coming, that is fake. It is not the same as this being a hint to an actual fully confirmed update; because it is near April Fools and thus that throws it into question. And, the creature that person found is a potentially unreleased and or future release creature found in the games code; which again is not the same scenario.

Replace "creature" with "character" and we have Winona's situation. 

It was us, the fanbase, who datamined. Blaming the devs for the hype and skepticism we made is unjustified.

Anyway, I don't know if we're derailing or not, but we should probably drop this argument.
Opinions are opinions. Just don't force it on another.

And yet, you do not take into account how being "buddy-buddy" as an indie game dev company with the fans is actually a good thing... also seriousness does not equate to objectivity most of what you said also had no official basis and are basing it on your own experience and emotions towards this turn of events.

Wait a second... you must be misinterpreting my statement... I am FOR Winona to be in the game...

Sorry if you didnt see the thing I put in the spoiler in another threadL

Ech, still afraid of them taking away/changing content or delaying things because of too much hype and speculation... (note that that post was not edited)

Now, *that* would be a really genius April Fool, if The Curator was actually a dev in disguise, imitating all the most insufferable behavior patterns that come up in this forum, right down to the yammering about "objectivity"!

You appear to be mistaken. The entire reason why the validity of this discovery is in question is because it is near April Fools. That is the entire point of the skepticism, it is not the same as just finding things in the code at any other time of the year.

Winona has modern dialogue which proves she was designed and or updated very recently, and unless the developers are imbeciles they would not waste time updating a shelved piece of code when they could be updating code they are actually going to publish. Especially when A New Reign is still actively being worked on, logically they should be prioritizing active content. Furthermore, the developers willfully removed it when people started talking about it. They very clearly are present in this matter.

Would like to believe people understand what a business is and that it is not appropriate, logical or ethical for a business to behave like a ramshackle group of amateur street peddlers who are simply trying to make money as opposed to being an organization responsible for their actions and choices. It is objectivity, but again, actually taking things seriously is often taboo in these communities.

Something something business, something something adults. Losing interest in trying to explain the basic fundamental logic of the matter that a business is an official organization made for profit which has ethical responsibilities and interests. You do not make a convincing reference to releasing a new product or addition to a product just so you can take it away as a joke. That is not how a business works, that is how adolescents making joke Youtube videos work. There is a difference. Klei is an official business organization, yet some people are convinced they're just a bunch of college students doing this for fun that have nothing to lose or gain from behaving certain ways.

What more is there to explain, Klei is a business; the word business should be the end of this. Business, not club; not group of friends, not team of classmates. Business.

 

The end, out of both interest and ways to explain this.

They DID say nothing about it and removed it from the files right after... I think it was a dev's mistake or something. It could be planned content but ends up unreleased, like Slipstor.
