There’s been another stream from Mark Jacobs regarding Camelot Unchained, but it might not be quite the content some would expect of a livestream. For one, the stream is live from inside the City State Entertainment office, and for two, the broadcast involved Jacobs processing refunds.
Naturally, that’s not the only thing that was part of the stream. In it, Jacobs talked about things like streaming gameplay sometime in September once the game’s performance is in a better state, interviewing some new engineers, producers, and programmers, noting some in-progress updates on crafting, and promise of a whole lot of bug squashing in Warband. “We are pushing forward with a lot of things for CU,” Jacobs promises.
At one point in the stream, someone in the chat offered some emotional support and a wish to stay positive, to which Jacobs responded with, “Look, I am positive. If I wasn’t I wouldn’t be here. If I were all negative and stuff, I’d be like ‘Yeah let’s just turn off refunds and shut down the studio.’ […] I appreciate the good vibes. Yeah, it’s hard when you hear some of the things that you’re hearing, especially when people are lying through their teeth about certain things. But, you know, look, it’s Reddit, it’s the internet; that’s what people do.”
As for the game itself, there was a playtest this weekend gone of the Hawking server for all backers of the game which ran all the way through until Monday.
