When Jeff says he's going to use a new engine, this is what I have nightmares of.

If Avernum 4 ends up like Homeland, then I think it should be entitled:

"Avernum 4: The Night of Stones... Kidney Stones. Lots of Them."

But in all seriousness, I'm confident the new engine will be nice, or at the very least inoffensive.

No one knows much for sure about A4. Most likely it's just a little upgrade of the original Avernums.

Let's just hope he doesn't try a cross between the Geneforge, Avernum and Homeland engines...

That would be a real-time, with grid squares and endless clicking... which just equals ewwwwwwww...

But Nethergate uses an early version of Avernum's engine.

He said he was going to rewrite the engine more or less from scratch, I think. He said the old one was getting clunky.

And I swear I have not laughed as hard in months as when I saw the first post of this topic.

He has described the engine with the unambiguous word "new" and with others such as "shiny" and "nice."

—Alorael, who distinctly remembers shiny. This may or may not be a good thing depending on how well your monitor compensates for glare.

This new engine better be good. If it turns out like Homeland, I'm going to go on a homicidal rampage. Or maybe I just won't bother downloading it.....

Edit: Or maybe I'll download the game and play it, but not enjoy it.

I bet Jeff's reading these and he's going to make A4 exactly like we're all fearing it to be.

Homeland is possibly the worst game I've ever played. You need to see it to know the horrors.

Yeah. I add my voice to this.

But honestly, Spiderwb didn't make Homeland, so it won't be anything like it!

Homeland != Terrific

Homeland == *insert something horrific here*

ter·rif·ic adj.:
1. Very good or fine; splendid: a terrific tennis player.
2. Awesome; astounding: drove at a terrific rate of speed.
3. Causing terror or great fear; terrifying: a terrific wail.
4. Very bad or unpleasant; frightful: a terrific headache.

"Terrific" therefore, is a completely useless word, because it has two meanings that are exact opposites. The only way to know which one a person means is by taking it in context. Even then, it's often impossible to tell.

:) AdoS, words having more than one meaning are highly useful, e.g. in literature.
I tried indeed to express "very bad".
