      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. Of course! Should've known the hounds would be colored the same as other monsters!
  2. The Straw Hat, forget the Top Hat! It's way too overrated!
  3. New recipes

    Noooooo! I want all my resources back that I used on attempting to find those recipes D:< Anyways, ya, I am using the gltest branch
  4. New recipes

    Been trying to do so, but no luck yet. Seems reasonable that waffles need butter, but as I crash every time I catch a butterfly, I'm not really pursuing that recipe.
  5. Kevin has said she was supposed to be very smart, so a school teacher might not be too far off, but I think her ability has to do with research related stuff.
  6. Hey, look! Free monster meat and silk laying around! *Proceeds to pick them up and gets ninja'ed by tentacles*
  7. New recipes

    Anyone try mandrakes with something other than carrots? I'm thinking these two recipes require some pretty rare ingredients if nobody has gotten it yet
  8. I feel like most players can agree that once they are able to survive into late game, the game becomes extremely easy. The developers are already working on making one option less viable: berry farming. However, with the new addition of fishing, I feel like it came with another way to easily survive. For those not aware, ponds are only found in swamp areas, which also contains thorny trees, large numbers of spider nests, and tentacles. Now, let's look at the requirements to make a fishing rod: 2 twigs and 2 silk. Mentioned previously, swamps have multiple spider nests which provide a very easy way to access silk. Also mentioned, they contain thorny trees which yield twigs, instead of logs. So basically, all ingredients of making a fishing rod can be found in the area where it's needed. If a player was to set up camp in the swamp area near a pond, they can just fish all day for food and make more fishing rods if needed. Frogs also occasionally appear from ponds which dies in one hit and also drops a pair of frog legs. There is basically no way for the player to take damage, unless he/she accidentally wanders off and gets killed by tentacles (easily avoided by being careful), forgets to build a fire, or similar mistakes. So, with an infinite amount of food from ponds and almost no way to take damage, it becomes extremely easy to survive. My suggestions: 1. Make some sort of fish or frog boss. So, maybe every now and then, the player can fish up a monster that is difficult to kill or a giant frog appears that aggros the player. It would similar to a Treant appearing when chopping down trees. 2. Make ponds contain a limited amount of resource. If Beefalos can't reproduce and give an endless supply of meat, why can fishes and frogs, when that strategy takes significantly less risk? 3. Make fishing rods harder to craft. 4. Make fishing rods require bait. I mean, why are the fishes even biting when there's nothing there? Other suggestions are welcome, or maybe there's another side to this strategy that makes it a lot more difficult to execute that I havn't noticed already?
  9. Hound Discussion

    I feel like they won't be that much different than the monsters we already have in regards to actually fighting them. Just deploy the hit-and-run tactic and you'll only be hit once in a while when you mess up. The real difference is they might actually do more damage and take more hits than the typical spider. Also, they could also pose more danger because they might be able to come out at Daytime and mess plans up. It might be worthwhile to actually craft an earlier Logsuit now just in case.
  10. .....?

    That picture is extremely small, but it looks like your Alchemy Machine.
