      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. Color blindness problem

    I too am color blind and also have this issue. The other area I have issue is I cannot tell the difference between the red and brown hounds. Games that offer color blind mode often do so by just adding a variance to the mode. For example with the tree instead of grey and red, the red highlight may also have lines in it like red and darker red so it kinda has the look of a barbers pole. This way even if we can't see the change from red and grey we can see the change from grey to grey bars. For hounds it would likely require them to be different in some way, make their skin slight more hairy or give them different eyes, people like myself that miss the color queue on mobs will notice the different artwork. With the above approaches a colorblind mode isn't even needed since it doesn't change or detract from normal color vision it's just made in a way that suits both. A perfect example of how it is done well is like the seeds. Eggplant seed have an eggplant in their graphic instead of being the same seed icon with a slightly different color. It works for all player regardless of vision type.
  2. Pig exhaustion.

    I agree, my game has turned into "Don't Overeat"
  3. Pine Cones

    The other option is to add a check routine, if tree exist you can have it check again later and to prevent a forever checking pine cone have it decay after 3 checks.
  4. I like the idea of a round robin mode where you are in a map with a random character and when you die you get a new one from the roster. This could be a fun mode and you could have a leader board for length survived as each character on the same island. I wouldn't want this to be the only mode, it would just be an interesting mechanic you could choose to play.
  5. Hey guys, First off I love this game! Second, I didn't know about the feeding birds (but do now) and was trying forever to see what use the cage had, which is what brought me here. I built it thinking that it would let me farm feathers. So that's my idea. I think that having a pet bird would be a great way to farm feathers. It could be done similar to honey in that you need to use paper on the cage once ever few days to clean the cage. Doing this would result in a chance to get feathers that fell out of your bird. the cage could look visually dirty to indicate it's cleaning time. The other option was what I actually tired. Hit the cage with a hammer to scare/shake a feather out of your pet. This could be considered naughty and if done more then once a day kill the bird? Cheers- Saber
