I always find information about game development far more interesting than news releases about the game itself and right now, as HEX's campaign is about to launch I am wondering what sort of atmosphere there is at the house of HEX.

Is it just another day, everyone going about their normal daily tasks because this build was done some time ago and there isn't much to do until it goes live and you learn what will need fixing?

Is it a party, with a big "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banner (apropos because a lot of the work has just started), drinks and maybe an inappropriately themed cake?

Is it a sweaty nightmare cave as you desperately try to fix problems you just now found (like right this second, oh my god, it's game breaking, what are you going to do?!), is someone delivering the bad news about a feature you planned to roll out today but now you know it just won't be happening today so you're making hasty edits to the patch notes and preparing the big soon™ stamp? Is someone yelling "everything is going wrong!" while another person yells "EVERYTHING I TOUCH DIES" as the building descends in to chaos and Cory, in a bid to restore order, starts living half in shadow, declares a himself a demigod and forms a cult that can only be brought down by Martin Sheen?

Pretty much where I am :D I'm about to head in to the office myself (it's like 7:15am here). I can only speak for myself, but I plan on doing a lot of drinking today ;D Plenty of blood sweat and tears that need to be quenched and celebrated with whiskey!! Although there will be a sense of coming together today I'm sure, today will also probably end up being a slightly different day for different Hex folk.

Honestly, I don't want to speak for anybody else, and different people on the Hex team don't always have concurrent hard times/experiences in general, but for me the atmosphere in the office has been pretty awesome as of late--sometimes when stuff is crunched and people are working themselves super hard it just feels brutal, but honestly the last few months it's also been that slightly different, very high-energy and high-excitement type vibes that have been floating around and fueling the work and process and collaboration, from a lot of what I've seen...

Good to know you guys are as psyched as most of us are about the new stuff!

Damn. I should have brought them more whiskey.

Congratulations on a big milestone, team. And thank you for all of the informational articles about the patch and what the future timeline looks like!

It must be amazing to see all that labor unleashed upon the world. Congratulations to everyone! I haven't gotten my hands on the game quite yet, but everything I have been hearing makes me think that you guys have made something truly special here.

I wish it looked like that here. You can't actually see our cars. 3 feet of snow.

I'm guessing right now it's more of a frantic rush to get things back up. ;)
