From what I gather the bulk of them are programmers, Albert, Václav and Pavel (the invisible one) do graphics, Betka is PR and kovarex paraglides, gets wed, writes blog posts and is generally useless. May as well fire the guy really.

Where did you take the photo?
It looks like a factory dock or something... I love Factorio, wish you guys all the most happy times, and am looking forward to the blueprint book! :D
EDIT:
I would of sworn that it wasn't there when I first read it, but after rereading it I see that the picture was "taken in an old railway station".
No, I'm not a piece of cheese! :D

For some reason, I'm having trouble attaching kovarex's face to the name & identity. Then again, I don't interact with him much. I usually interact with Oxyd & HanziQ far more than the rest of the staff on account of them being the only ones that really talk on IRC.

Can't wait for 13.0!
What are the first features you are going to add? I sure hope it's a proper tech tree.

That's a cool photo. You managed to make a whole bunch of people look reasonably photogenic. x)
Also I see some clear oppression of the female minority happening. D:

No oppression if women just don't go to the games industry as men do.
