good to hear y'all have such a dandy workflow, given the arduous road ahead. i cant wait to see what interesting stuff comes out of the NPC system. it's probably the part of this all im most interested in.
I'm not gonna try to be as eloquent as the homie above me, but you disliking something doesn't make it a bad design flaw. These devs don't compromise and whether or not you like that will decide how your player experience goes.
