Update: Twins

WlIpZlF.gif

You want to play with friends.

But how can you do that without subverting the entire premise of the game?  This is a game about being born as the helpless baby of a total stranger, and depending on that stranger for your survival.  It's also about playing a small part in a family of strangers.  You didn't know your mother in real life before you were born, and that's what makes her so special.  Imagine if your mother was really your college roommate in disguise, and you knew it.  Imagine if your mother talked to you over voice chat, and she sounded just like your college roommate.

But you want to play with friends.  There's only one solution here, and I never said it was going to be pretty.

How can you play with friends and yet still be born as a helpless baby of a total stranger?  Only if you and your and your friends are ALL born as helpless babies to the same total stranger.  Twins.  Triplets.  Quadruplets.

If you act like you've known each other since before birth, you have---you shared a womb together, after all.  To others in the game, you almost seem to read each other's minds.  And you look identical.  And your poor mother---one baby is hard enough.  It's not easy being a twin.

Also, a bunch of little bugs have been fixed along the way.

What is an ominous blade blank?

It's that blade blank next to the file and short staff you see in a naked toddler's basket.

As a twin in IRL can I just say that you did a good job in enrapturing the mum's struggle

Re: Update: Twins

How do you actually spawn together with a friend? Is there a tutorial or something?

Re: Update: Twins

How long is the log in as twins supposed to take? My brother and I put in the generated code and it just sat there saying waiting to be born for 5 minutes. It said the login failed multiple times before that. Am I missing something?

I know right, most of my friends think it's stupid. Funny how people can come together as friends and still have such different interests. That's another subject entirely though.

Re: Update: Twins

Has anyone else made it into the game as triplets? My two (real life) kids want to play with me but we have waited to be born for 15mins and gave up waiting.

Re: Update: Twins

If you're stuck waiting to be born, make sure that one player doesn't have useCustomServer set by accident.

If one player does, and the others don't, you will be sent to different servers, and it won't work.

Re: Update: Twins

Login failed is also a really strange result here.  If you saw that, please send me a recordedGame file that captures this behavior.

Re: Update: Twins

Seems like twin Eves should be related instead of no-relation.

Re: Update: Twins

I like the tutorial, curse, and twins.  Now, I want trade routs, irrigation pipes, fabric banners, and fireworks.


I love all of my children.  You are wanted and loved.

Thanks for the new borderless windowed mode as well as being able to go back to menu after death. Great QOL additions.
