I already expected a pun like it.


That said... how the time flies... I remember the times when there were only like 3 core people on the team.

Now it is like a full grown studio with a specialist at every position. Some of which I didn't even know that they are there because they almost never comment on the forum or write FFFs.

kovarex looks almost like the team is holding him hostage, forcing him to fix all the trains logic without sleeping.
Break the signals in the next update, if this is true. We will notify officials.

Congratulations of reaching number 300!
Fun to read of all those DOS games as favorites.

Hello devs,
just want to say thanks for this great game. Friday Facts is what keeps me hooked to this game, as every single week there is something interesting to read, and it really satisfies my interest in game design. Just keep going, 1.0 is close ;)

@Twinseeenn...!
For some reason i always convinced myself that your name must be some coincidence. That it's from somewhere else certainly. The odds clearly too low. Then i opened your list of games. LBA2 was my first game on my first own PC. I still remember spending the whole night of that magic day when i got it... on abusing the secret room in my (your :p?) house to get 999 kashes right form the start. And then was very dissapointed they don't take kashes on Zeelich :D. Regrettably i spoiled myself by using a guide for the last few puzzles, so i never got to feel the joy of having properly solved them myself. This must have triggered something in my young self because nowadays i go to great length to avoid spoilers for anything and everything. I still haven't gotten around to playing LBA1 though...

@sanqui:
Did you do the translation yourself or were you "only" involved with the technical background?

@Everyone:
It's good to know that you (plural) at wube still have time for family, hobbies etc. Because every time i see a team member post an answer on sunday evening i get really worried :D.

@kovarex:
And special gratulations to your (singular) happy family life :). May everyone in the team who desires so be as fortunate as you are.
