    Do you have a massive archive of old builds of your games? Do you ever go look at really old ones?

    In ep #304 you talked about water in CL2. My immediate thought was I need to be able to sit my butt down and watch sunrises and sunsets in game play out on the horizon and reflect in the water. Is that a plan? Can we slow time or provide an option to while at water so you can fish and watch the sunset for much longer than it'd normally last? What about clouds, will you have VOLUMETRIC GODRAYS (my favorite description of Skyrim to this day 😂)?

    Beekie Boppaboop @2ajwto asked

    You all have been talking about the idea that you should rate books/games/movies/tv-shows on how well they do what they are trying to do. Are there any examples of a piece of media where you think that’s done well but you dislike it? (Sorry this is not worded super well... is there a term for that phenomenon?)

    Have you heard about the new Apple Arcade model that has “plus” editions of games already available on the App Store? This seems like a great opportunity for your games of it doesn’t still have stupid restrictions.

    Coral Island by Stairway Games recently completed a successful Kickstarter in March by raising over $1.6 million (crazy numbers!). This Stardew Valley-like game is set to release it's Alpha this July. Do you all think crowdfunding is a viable method to developing games, or is would this only work for a specific genre?

    Have you gotten any 5-star "1-star reviews"? You know, the opposite of:

    Played for 1000 hours, wouldn't recommend. 1 Star.

    in episode 302, you guys talked about how the Levelhead campaign might have been better if On Time Deliveries were hidden until a player completed the campaign. i agree that would be a good thing to change. do you think you will ever revisit the campaign and tweak some things like that?

    Whenever I work on a project and find a hook or idea that seems fun and potentially interesting to explore, I instantly lose interest in the project. It's like some performative imposter syndrome, where if I finish it then someone, somewhere might actually see it and... play it (and then tell me their thoughts). When you first started making games, did you have this kind of anxiety? If so, how did you overcome it?

    Hey Bros, just wondering how you deal with art scaling now that you aren't using inkscape. What size are things drawn at versus what size they appear in the game? Do you downscale while exporting from CSP, or let GM handle it at runtime, or did Adam make you guys your own thing? Thanks. Also just a reminder you guys are the best.

    challosis @fuwqnd asked

    What is the balance between implementing new features to test designs, and cleaning up known bugs to make the game less fragile/easier to add more things?

    What's your opinion on NFTs? the future of digital art or another way of tech startups to scam VC's out of money?

    What is your favorite example of something you "invented" that was already in existence? For example, one day not too long ago, I "invented" the computer mouse.

    How do you keep your hot drinks hot? Mug warmer, insulated mug, none of the above?

    RoninGameDev @22kd9c asked

    Adam in podcast 307 you seemed to be kind of into the tech side of streaming. Thoughts on maybe setting you and your bros up to record the podcast live? If you did all the pre-setup to the point where Seth and Sam just had to turn on their webcams I bet they would be down. Twitch subs would be more money to grab. eh? eh? And you can just ignore chat for that hour. People can deal. Normal listeners would still get the edited version on Wednesdays. win-win. :D

    conscience @0s3l9l asked

    Since you are also working a lot in front of your PCs and probably spend a fair amount with gaming or further hone your skills after work. What is your current mice and keyboard setup? Do you plan to switch to an ergonomic setup, if not already and which would/have you choose(n)?

    cprice @rmyh5h asked

    Did something change ya'lls opinions on sponsored streams or were they just easier to get around the 1st year anniversary of levelhead? From what I recall you all thought they were not worth it so I'm curious if you got new information that convinced you to do them.

    allenmb @jlq6gs asked

    So I got a ps5 a couple months ago. While most of the hype and claims from sony were BS or highly exaggerated, the haptic feedback on the controller lives up to the hype 100% and is the best improvement to me. What're your thoughts on marketing hype vs facts? Expectations vs reality? What's the most outrageous claim y'all have made in life that ended up being 100% bullshit?
