I really love the "Well, yeah, they got offered a job by a REAL game company, why wouldn't they jump ship mid-project?"

I don't really follow the game dev industry but isn't working on a game until release a big deal? Can someone with more experience in the video game industry (that isn't an SC cultist) educate me on how important staying with the company is vs jumping ship from company to company?

Worse than that, they went from:

- well just because some people are getting fired doesn't prove anything, sometimes people get fired when the project is getting completed

to

- people are getting fired which proves the project is getting completed

Seeing as how every single cultist is a domain expert in game development, I wonder if they'd head on over to /r/gamedev to defend SC if a discussion of the issues CIG are having with their crosshair was started?

:gary:

This isn't a :goon: incitement, I just wonder how far the dissonance goes and if they're willing to take on actual gamedevs with their YOU DONT UNDERSTAND GAME DEVELOPMENT line.

While the stream is on, we will be liveblogging it. Once the stream is done, we will update the page to include a full text summary of the liveblog.

TRANSCRIPT BY ERRIS, CANADIANSYRUP IN PROGRESS

CIG have started the stream early to... host Bob Ross painting happy clouds and things.

Disco Lando just appeared for a second, then disappeared. Back to Bob Ross!

Bob is currently painting a tree, doing the leaves, looks like a very nice early fall tree, greens, yellows, browns. He's switching over to a large brush now, painting in brown and umber, dropping in what looks to be a bush.

Putting a few little trunks into the bush, now going back to yellow, to add in some colour to the bush. Looks quite pretty.

Ok, I'll stop liveblogging Bob Ross now, and wait for the RtV stream to start.

Ok, who am I kidding, this is too engrossing not to liveblog. Bob's moving onto a new painting; he's got a canvass that's got a coat of blue and green, and now he's just painting in some white very loosely.

Bob's telling us to have fun, let things happen, and isn't that just a good lesson for life itself, not just painting.

'These are your woods, so whatever you want in there' I want a Hornet in there. Can we have a Hornet in the woods?

The forest is slowly filling up, trees taking the spaces where the ligt isn't, filtering out the blackness from the white beyond.

Also Disco's occasionally throwing up some of the random SC pre-stream images, then going immediately back to Bob Ross.

Bob is currently waxing philosophical about what noise a carrot makes, while he adds little tiny branches to trees.

The painting gives the impression right now of woods at dusk, a tiny bit of moonlight drifting in between the branches.

The painting gives the impression right now of woods at dusk, a tiny bit of moonlight drifting in between the branches.

And then there was a Disco Lando staring at the screen, and he's gone again. Back to Bob! Part of me wonders if we'll just watch Bob all day, skip RtV entirely. Part of me wouldn't object.

Bob's starting to fill in the mid-ground now. The trees that are there, they sit in the back, lonely and distant. The yellow meadow he's filling in now gives a lustre of life to the painting, bring it closer, more personal.

Bob said 'let there be light', and he mixed some red, blue, and white paint together, starting touching the trees to brighten them, and lo, there was light.

A few touches of light,a nd the painting has transformed from a midnight scene to an early morning view. Bob's adding in more small details, more limbs for the trees.

Bob's blending in the yellow and ochre along the grass, giving them flavour and colour without brightening them too much.

Bob's going to put a nice house in the background now; a house he'd like to live in, so he could sit outside the house, talking to the little white rabbit that lives deep in the forest.

I mean to be fair, Derek, you and I both bought some jpegs for a game that didn't exist when we backed the kickstarter. As I'm sure a lot of other people here did too.

But never mind, I will agree that all of our psychological integrity should be questioned :gary:

Well that's reassuring that they're able to do this given that sections of the game are indeed getting completed. As milestones are met teams usually get leaner and leaner. While CIG is by no means getting lean, this is a healthy and perfectly normal thing in the industry.

This is what I don't get, it's just so blatantly one sided that other people must've noticed by now. The rest of reddit can't be as bad as that shithole, so why isn't someone stepping in and saying "you're running this place like Pinochet ran loving Chile. Knock it off".

Or is every subreddit its own little kingdom? I don't really know how it works over there.

No, there's a Bob Ross marathon on https://www.twitch.tv/BobRoss (officially endorsed by Bob Ross' company) and CIG are just hosting it via the Channel Hosting feature on Twitch.

It's so that if you go to CIG's Twitch channel, it'll just play whatever is on Bob Ross' channel.
