The number of watch related activities I’m participating in at PAX East this year is pretty ridiculous.
Dear Diary, it is three days now until I defeat Tycho at Overwatch. We've had some time to practice as a team, and we all really clicked. Erik is a WOW raid leader when he's off duty and those skills are a real boon for the team. He has demanded we all spend at least 6 hours a day watching tips and strategy videos. Kiko is a stone cold killer and should probably go to real jail for some of the crimes he has committed with a virtual gun. Bill is playing at a level that, frankly I find scary. I've seen him make plays that no human could pull off. I'm not saying he's not human, all I am saying is Bill Amend is not entirely human. Van is a wildcard. He has avoided team practices saying that he prefers to work alone. He claims to be practicing something called "self sharpening" that he says can only be accomplished in solitude. That brings me to James. James is scaring even me now. I worry that he he may turn on the team and kill us all before I even have a chance to unleash him on Tycho. The doctor says the implants he installed will hold but...perhaps I have gone to far with this one?
Overwatch for the Watch
We are bringing Thornwatch to PAX East and its really getting good. PAX South was a great test and we’ve built on the game thanks to a lot of your feedback. We’ve also finalized some stuff we were on the fence about and even added a couple things. In general it’s just a much more polished experience and pretty damn close to what you’ll play when the game ships.
If you want to play Thornwatch at the show you’ll need to come by our panel on Friday at 2:30 in Dragonfly theatre. We will actually be teaching you how to play at the panel so that our testing time is taken up with game testing and not game teaching. In addition to new game mechanics, players at East will be the first ones to try out our brand new class, the Warden.
So come by the panel, learn to play Thornwatch and get signed up for the playtest!
