Questions for Meg
80 Days feels simultaneously challenging and forgiving. Was that intentional? (if so) how did you do that?
Are there any other classic stories you would like to revisit in a similar manner to 80 Days?
I loved being able to share my 80 Days journey at the end of the game. Was that feature always planned?
What we’re playing:
- Meg: Stellaris, Pillars of Eternity
