Bonfire Studios, one of the Ensemble Studios spin-offs, has updated their website: http://www.bonfire-studios.com/

The company is currently focused on developing a new IP "that redefines genres and appeals to mass audiences". Probably an RTS and RPG mix…

So what can we expect from the website artwork?



I've done a small analysis of their artwork. Check out my thread at HG main

Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.
Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back.
Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
There's no place I can be, since I found Serenity.
But you can't take the sky from me...

DragonQ, please refrain from spamming useless content in General, Strategy & DM Discussions.

Sometimes you need to scare the lambs,
tell tales of evil bad wolves.
Because if there is nothing to fear,
they might think for themselves.

The word you were looking for was "satire", "satire" was the correct answer.

Actually Sam, all forms of humour over the Internet have just been put under the vast umbrella of sarcasm as no one can distinguish irony, satire, slapstick, ETC from it*. This is also quite apparent over at AS


*Which comes as great surprise as there is hardly any similarity at all in any of these.

I would say satire and sarcasm are more similar than being different. Just a quick dictionary.com search of satire gave sarcasm & irony as part of the definition. :P

For me, satire resonates more with a novel genre than other things.

Satire is like parody; the way the word "sarcasm" is colloquially used is nothing like satire despite whatever the definition may say.

Round 1 to Martel.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre,
The falcon cannot hear the falconer,
Things fall apart, The center cannot hold,
Mere anarchy is unleashed upon the world.

Returning to the topic, I guess it will just be another WoW clone for this company to have a piece of the monthly-pay money cake.

Darkness is a state of mind
Valor is the contempt of Death and Pain. (Tacitus)
Problems worthy of attack prove their worth by hitting back. (Piet Hein)

Our best bet for any RTS typical ES style game is from Robot Entertainment (RE) anyways.
