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.

Fir It was always so cold out, he thought he could freeze at any moment. He tried to remember what the Summer was like, but the days had dragged on so long he couldn't. Honestly, he was beginning to question if there ever was a Summer. This place did things to you, did things to your mind. You never knew what was real, what was imagined. For all he knew he could have lived in this world all his life.. but if that was true shouldn't surviving just from day to day be easier than this? He was always so hungry, and everything he met immediately tried to kill him. A village full of Werepigs in the middle of the night, a savannah full of Beefalo during mating season.. one time he'd accidentally wandered towards a circle of little stone huts. He thought he'd finally found someone to help him, but the residents just stared in bewilderment before chasing him down with painful darts and hunting dogs. He'd barely managed to get rid of them, he thought his life was over for sure that day. Now every perilous day was filled with anger, red hot anger at what this world was doing to him. That's why he was caught so off guard when the Treeguard attacked him. He'd been in the forest, and made the terrible mistake of taking his anger out on the trees. Each one that hit the ground felt so good, like knocking over bowling pins. But that's when the footsteps started. He had to squint to see it, the thing had completely blended in with all the other evergreens around it. Anger turned to surprise, surprise turned to fear. He'd never seen something so huge in his life.. and it was coming straight for him! For once he thought he would have to fight something he couldn't handle, something that would kill him. Oh, sure, he fought valiantly. You always do when you're fighting to survive. He even did some damage, but he was no match for the Treeguard. Every swipe cut into his flesh, left splinters on his skin. It was painful, and after a while it became too painful to carry on. All he could smell was pine. He collapsed in front of it, bleeding out into the snow. As the lumbering Treeguard slumped away from his dying body, his eye slowly closed. Deerclops was no more. --- Oh hey, you're still reading this post. Well, I'll take that to assume you liked the story enough to finish it! I like making short stories, so if you thought this was good feel free to throw a concept at me that I can cook up into a fun little tale.
