      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. Yeah Modulate is just the worst, it's one of my least favorite Daemons. Just thanks god there is no Labyrinth 2.0. I would cry if I saw that.
  2. Hahaha I've run into that situation. I have a similar setup to yours but not quite so punishing combined with Modulate. Luckily Nika and Banks have maxed hacking.
  3. I started with Archive Nika and Ester, no specific reason other than I saw the devs use it and it looked pretty good and I wanted to try it out. I first found Decker which was quite nice. I got quite a few good items, including an augment that gives me more money the more of the map that I explore. So even if I don't necessarily manage to loot much I still get a decent bonus, especially now on day 7 where sometimes I have to explore a lot to find the exit card. My second agent was Banks who still up to this point doesn't have a disrupter, I just can't seem to get one. I think my greatest strength and the thing that's keeping me alive is my ability to fight back. Every level now is basically just a mad dash as I either get Blowfish which for me is actually the best case scenario or Fractal or Modulate slow me down so bad in combination with all the Omni guards with their conciousness monitors, I always end up at at least alarm level 5. Decker has Nerual Disrupter II and also Cloaking Rig III with the augment that lets him knock out guards in an AoE when he uses it. In the last mission I got Shock Trap III which is gonna be awesome, haven't used it yet though. Nika and Ester have augments that give them armor piercing on their disrupters which is good since they're still using basic disrupters. Also Nika has a Biogenic Dartgun that uses a cooldown and lets her knock out any guard even the guards with level 3 armor thanks to her Ventricular Lance. This is my 2nd Endless Run and also my best one so far. My only recommendation is to just prepare a team that's able to deal with 5 guards + drones looking for them as that's pretty much a guarantee once you get past day 5, it's super unlikely you'll get a chance to stealth through the levels and you need to be able to deal with terrible situation. Always have that backup plan, have your agents back up each other just in case one gets caught. I have had to skip at least 2 level's objectives as they were just basically impossible to get unless I really wanted to play with death due to the way the levels get generated combined with Archdeamons you get.
  4. What if you've just looted it from the level? Like a vault and got it afterwards?
  5. Yeah that's what I've been fearing. I've only gotten Fractal 2.0 once but there was a Daemon database right outside my spawn which was really handy, even if the database itself had Validate installed in it... I've never been sure if I'm a big fan of the Felix Daemon, just kind of lame to take away a bunch of money from the player with no way to combat it other than just avoid it. I wish the money was deposited to a nearby safe or something of that nature and you could find a way to get it back.
  6. Haha I've avoided those Felix Daemons like the plague so far and it seems it's the right thing to do if they take that much money.
  7. It reduces how far guards can see, at first I didn't understand it very well (and I still don't), I thought it was the width of their vision that would get affected so I could walk past them but nope, however, by reducing their range if they're just barely watching a door, I can make it so that it's only within their noticing range and walk right up to them and knock them out. I don't understand it fully either so take everything i just said here with a pinch of salt, I have a very basic understanding of it, when I use it I'm just thinking "Maybe it will help here?" and hoping for the best.
  8. Yeah, I'm on day 7 myself and I just had the most insane mission ever in Sankaku, had Modulate 2.0 as my archdaemon, slows down my progress to a crawl when I have to keep waiting for so long and making sure I have power for Fusion and all that. I took Prism and Archive Nika as my starting agents, found Decker and Banks. Would have preferred Xu over Banks but oh well, I've sunk a bunch of money into her and her special augment does come in handy every once in a while but haven't been able to get a Disrupter for her yet. I have Fusion, Lockpick 1.0 (I know, freaking sucks) Wrench 3, Emergency Drip and Shade (which has helped me a few of times). I have been trying to replace Lockpick for so long but Shop Cat keeps trolling me with crappy programs. One of the most awesome things I got early on thanks to Monst3r was the augment that gives you credits the more of the map you explore. I haven't been able to get the last couple of mission objectives complete and I still walk out with over 1500 credits per mission which is quite nice. The Biogenic Dart Gun has been pretty awesome too with Archive Nika's special augment reducing its cooldown every time I knock someone out with her. The archdaemons are just insane and really change the way missions progress. I've had quite a few where it would have been much simpler if they didn't exist. Would be awesome though if you could get positive archdaemons rarely that gave you a huge advantage like automatic power regeneration, armor piercing on all your weapons or slower alarm increase or something like that. I've been having to knock out guards a lot lately and a lot of missions I've been like "Oh crap, this is it, I'm screwed, this is probably impossible" but I've gotten it done. Have to say though, I have no idea how you would get these missions done on Endless Plus.. Really satisfying feeling when you manage to have your agents pull through in the end and have them all super upgraded and kicking ass. They've done a great job with this mode to continuously provide a challenge and it lets you do things you could probably never do in the regular game.
  9. What Was Your First Death?

    I'm pretty sure my first death was to tentacles....yeah because I remember that was how I died the first few times in DS. Then I decided to get a brain and I thought "Maybe I should stop trying to explore these swamps without getting some armor first..."
  10. Just played 3 missions of this. Parasite definitely doesn't seem like a good starting choice now, way too slow but I still like it, I'm glad you didn't nerf into oblivion and just gave it a 1 turn cooldown. The Chief executive missions are pretty cool, they have a nice feeling to them; infiltrating a building to find a guy to hack into his brain is definitely is a nice feeling, especially as the hack is being completed. Also thank you so much for fixing that lag bug that there was when you played the game for a long period of time, that honestly was turning me off from playing the game at times because one of the nice things in this game is seeing the animations play out and it just got so annoying having to watch my agents stutter after every 1 tile of movement. So thanks for that. So nice update so far and I haven't even seen half the new programs. Only seen lockpick 2.0 which I couldn't afford at the time unfortunately.
  11. What do you think about Wigfrid?

    Well if I want to choose a character that makes me feel elite it's surely not going to be Wolfgang. I would use Wes, maybe Willow. It's not that she is not equal with Wolfgang, it's that her abilities are so similar to Wolfgang's and so much better that obviously she will be compared to him. And if it came down to which one you should choose for the better combat abilities Wigfrid will always win because she beats Wolfgang in pretty much every aspect. So imo her abilities should be changed so that she isn't a better version of Wolfgang.
  12. What do you think about Wigfrid?

    The meat only disadvantage to me is only prominent in the early game. The instant you have one or two crock pots then it's not that bad because you can use vegetables to make meat recipes (meat balls, honey ham, honey nuggets etc. etc.) so you can still utilize farms for crops to make meat recipes. The only place I can see her disadvantage being difficult to deal with is the caves due to bunnymen. And I don't have a problem with the fact that she's OP if it seems that way. It's just that she just has a rehashed arguably better version of Wolfgang's abilities.
  13. What do you think about Wigfrid?

    Ummm if I'm choosing a character with a combat advantage I would want that advantage constantly because that's why I chose the character in the first place (I don't pick Wolfgang to play like Wilson, I choose Wilson for that ) which means Wigfrid would always be one I choose because she is better than Wolfgang in that regard. And honestly his higher hunger doesn't mean that much to me because eventually hunger really isn't an issue with any character and it just makes it a pain to fill him up completely for his advantage. And not to mention he loses sanity quicker while Wigfrid has the easiest time filling her sanity since it plays into her combat advantage. So to me he is obsolete.
  14. More sanity stuff.

    I think this is a really cool suggestion. Something I've wanted for a while. I really hope they implement this at some point or another in the DLC. The idea of the DLC is a bigger challenge after all and adding some more challenge to the insanity mechanic would be quite good.
  15. What do you think about Wigfrid?

    I don't think they should nerf her current abilities personally. I think it would be better to just completely re-evaluate her abilities and make them not so combat oriented. Wolfgang is there for that. She could have a completely different set of abilities.
  16. What do you think about Wigfrid?

    She's a better version of Wolfgang who has access to her combat abilities constantly while Wolfgang has to fill himself up for his combat advantage. Yeah she can only eat meat but that's barely a disadvantage once you have at least one crock pot. I like her but she makes Wolfgang seem obsolete to me which I do not like.
  17. Well yeah but the way he is talking about it it's almost like the devs have released the DLC and said that nothing will be changed. But it will in time if it's an issue. As you said, he is complaining, not simply bringing in attention on the issue.
  18. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    Yeah I was quite surprised as well to see a smallbird hanging around a tallbird, had to kill the parent because it started attacking me while I was trying to mine a rock too close to its nest and the smallbird quickly starved afterward...
  19. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    Tallbirds reproduce. Don't know if that's been mentioned but I don't want to go through 12 pages of posts...
  20. The DLC release date?

    He's asking about the full DLC, not the beta phase of the DLC.
  21. The DLC release date?

    I believe sometime in April. Ignore, on April they're just going to open it up to more people via Early Access. I don't think they've mentioned yet when it will be released.
  22. How long should the new seasons be?

    That sounds decent. Though like DwerBomb if the 10 day ones were upped to 12 I think I would like that just a bit more. Small change but still.
  23. If you saw that thread it was pretty much filled with people hating on the game and the developers because of this one trophy. Everyone can play how they want but it's pretty hilarious that one tedious trophy can make you despise and instantly disregard a game.
  24. 1. I don't think monkeys will take an entire backpack. They will wear hats they steal. What the usually do is knock out an item from your inventory and if you don't pick it up in time they'll take it. They throw poop at you and will follow you a more persistently if you have bananas in your inventory. 2. Depth Worms will attack you in set periods just like hounds. Most of the time they will attack you when you enter a cave that you haven't entered in a while. They start with only 2 which are quite easy to deal with. Later they start coming in pack of 4 or 6. From my experience unless they just glitched not all 4 or 6 will come at once. They'll come in pairs one a little bit after the other giving you time to kill 2 then get ready for the next 2. 3. Bringing lobsters is definitely a good idea. You don't have to wait for them to be beside you for them to follow you in btw. So long as they are considered befriended they will appear with you down in the ruins. I would recommend leaving some near each of the cave levels' entrances to help you with worm attacks.
  25. YES! Been waiting for this. Can't wait! Now I'm all excited.
