Nah, it's a fully 3D MMO version of Liberal Crime Squad that he's been working on during the weekends for some years now. He just has to work out some last minute details on the micro-transactions and loot-boxes.

My guess it's something along the lines of 'DF won a prize' or 'DF is now available on itch.io, prizing being 'free' with 'pay what you want' options'.

So, with some analysis we can see what's happening here.
Meph is unusually active in this thread and over at Reddit. Meph's last non-modding related post was...well, too far back for me to trace without feeling like a stalker.  :)

So, in conclusion...

Someone want to randomly speculate something earth-shattering in the blank here...?

Ey, I'm always active on Reddit. :P

Before anyone makes any weird conclusions: No, neither my mod nor my tileset have anything to do with the upcoming announcement. No worries.

Oh well. There goes that theory.  :)

Guess I'll just wait a few weeks then and not even try to dissect your words in which you don't deny being involved with the Announcement.  ;D

Can confirm, Meph is very active over on reddit, often volunteering to answer newbie questions when he's not walking people through tileset issues or gloating about mysterious whatevers.

As an adventure mode lover, will the announcement appeal to me?

Ebook version of Procedural Generation in Game Design (and second print of paper version)!
Is surely not the Announcement, but it's still fine enough news to hype it here. Well, I'm happy about it anyway (hardback books cost a fortune to ship out to my part of the world).

--edit
Wait, there was already an ebook of the first edition? Damn, how did I miss that...

I've had a bit of a sleep on it, and i think i've come to the likely conclusion its a graphical release version using mephs tileset or a related one being produced alongside each release, which should be nice. Would remind me of CDDA's methods.

Isn't Meph's tileset full of copyrighted material? I remember it had Spongebob and some Nintendo game art. I think that might be a little bit of a minefield for Toady on the basis that he profits from DF via donations, which means he'd avoid the entire thing.

Apologies for starting the Meph conspiracy theory. This thread is like a microcosm of the Internet in action.  :)

Not to mention mephs tileset requires twbt, which requires dfhack.

I am joining in on it either being the new book, or my original guess of it being something like an award or the like.
