Almost all of these seemed random and not particularly directed at me (and some I just ignored), but here are very brief answers to the oodles of these things that have been piling up for some time. (Also, I find it highly irritating that just logging in to ask.fm will cause it to throw a question at you immediately afterwards, to… keep you engaged, I guess? It annoys the heck out of me.)
How often do you read stage plays? Virtually never.
How much of a mess is your room? Not too bad, lately. Definitely dusty but otherwise pretty orderly.
Is it possible to break down programming a game on the scale of Fallout or Skyrim? For example 70% coding the game,25% rectifying problems,5% fixing bugs. It’s possible in theory, I suppose, but difficult in practice. You could look at the core team in the credits and get a percentage by headcount that way.
Mind sharing what’s going through your mind right now? Meow meow meow meow, meow meow meow meow, meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow.
Can you sum up your day so far in just one word? No.
If you had the opportunity to go somewhere and start a new life, where would you go? What job would you have? And how do you imagine your house there? Always wanted to be a writer, likely in the Pacific Northwest, with a house spare in everything but books.
If someone wants to talk to you , what are the steps they should proceed to reach your acceptance of giving them a portion of your time to listen to ? I answer non-spam email from virtually anyone, on the topics of game development and programming therefor.
What do you like in life? To see my enemies driven before me.
Are you happy with the amount of information in your head? No.
Would you rather be a philosopher, an astrophysicist, or a psychologist? Why? The questions of philosophy tend to interest me most.
Do you believe in super natural powers? Nope, I’m a materialist.
If you had one word to describe yourself, what word would it be? Unsimplifiable.
Do you prefer to ask questions or answer them? Asking questions without making an attempt to answer them seems pointless.
If you could replace anything from your body, what would it be? The joints.
If you could travel the world with only one person who would you take? I have a high school friend whose conversation never flags and often fascinates.
Are cats or dogs smarter? Essentialist arguments are b.s.
Do Moorcock’s novels age well for you? The Elric novels mostly did, though they have the sexism problems of the age, but having read a couple Hawkmoon books I probably won’t read any more of him.

Your game of 2018 Brett?
I can’t say that I have one, to be honest — because of ongoing pain from a repetitive stress injury sustained in late 2017, I only began playing games again in earnest over the last couple of months. Of the small handful of new games I’ve played this year, God of War would be a strong AAA contender. I don’t think I’ve played enough to feel I can say I have one, though.
I see,thanks for the reply.Maybe a blog on your repetitive stress injury? I understand if it’s personal.
That’s not a bad idea! Certainly not too personal. We had someone ask about it for the podcast this week as well, or at least, remedies. I just posted something this morning, so I’ll probably hold off a few days but sure, why not.
