Upcomming announcement....

Nothing villainous to report on the dev log this week, as the bulk of my work time was spent preparing material for an upcoming Dwarf Fortress announcement. That'll happen in a few weeks!

What do you think?

EA acquired Dwarf Fortress

Nooo...
I hope it's more like "5 guys are going to help fixing all the bugs so I can just focus on the upcomming new features".

I hope it's more like "5 guys are going to help fixing all the bugs so I can just focus on the upcomming new features".
And then I'll stop making Dwarf Fortress because I had to pay to them and now have no money and need a real job...

Or:
Threetoe short story compilation publishing deal announced!

Prototype Culture Generator to be demoed at GDC (for post Mythgen a long, long time from now).

Technical update announcement that will make techy forumites go woohoo! And have the rest of us nodding and muttering 'oh yeah, proton..quantum..multi-tiled-processor things - that'll surely help with the fps...".

Or possibly...

"Eleventy-one years is far too short a time to work among such excellent and admirable forumites. This is the END. I am going. I am leaving NOW. GOOD-BYE!"

Who could really know what the mighty Toad is up to?

My theory (and hope) is perhaps a feature-length Dwarf Fortress documentary will be made by someone.  All this based on "material needs preparing" comment.  Also part self-projecting, because I also have had lofty plans of doing a DF documentary in the past.  :)

Three Toe story collection would be interesting, too.

Could also just be gearing us up for an April ruse...

The Shadow knows!

(I think he's going to announce that he'll make anything and everything in the Terrible Suggestions Thread his top priority.)

One other possible thing is the return of DF talk.

Toady is cancelling the Big Wait altogether, he's been working on mythgen in secret this whole time and we'll get it bundled with the villain release. :P

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.
