: : : 5)  Do you ever obtain usable magic?  (I just love to burn trees)

: : Nope. In Nerux, which to be honest I may never work on again, you're able to go into Dink's estate and burn things. In CC, however, I wanted the combat to be pure hack&slash action.

:  You wanted to make it a hack and slash game? No you didn't!! You never said that once! That's just the way it turned out, as we decided that three would be no magic in the first game.

Nope. Remember, we experimented with magic, but it didn't really add anything. And I made my intention to have very action-orientated fight scenes extremely clear.

: : : Thanks!!  These little details always nag at me

: : Heh. I need nagging in order to keep up work on Scarab. It's hard to make a fun game.

: You have never even touched Scarab. Never.

Shows what you know, and what you forget. I tried to restyle it recently, but it wouldn't load in Dinkedit. I have absolutely no idea what you've done with it.

But anyway, if you want to talk to me about this, do so off the board. We don't want to irritate the nice people around here.
