Dev Blog #47: Weekly Q&A Returns, Feedback Focus & Mercia Monthly Newsletter

Welcome one and all to our weekly Dev Blog!

We’ve got information on the return of our Weekly Q&A, a Community Feedback Form for you all and a Mercia Monthly Newsletter.

Update Forecast: V0.20 should hopefully be dropping sometime this Friday if everything goes smoothly.

Return Of The Weekly Q&A

Many of you might remember our Weekly Q&A that we used to run here on the Dev Blog. Here is one of our past Blog posts where we had this feature:

We had a pool of questions submitted by you all from our forums, Twitter, Facebook, Dev Blog comments and even by email. We would then fish out around 4-6 of these each week and answer them in as much detail as we could, providing we didn’t let lose any big update drops!

This will be making a return in next week’s Dev Blog! To start things from a fresh pool (there were a few rats floating in there) we ask you to submit to us your questions that you want answering from the team! You can send these via email at:, over on our Twitter, Steam Forums or as comments down on this Blog post.

The Black Death Social

You may have noticed there has been recent activity over on our Facebook and Twitter, this is thanks to Dmitri for scheduling some new content for you all, he has some more things planned.

Keep an eye on our Twitter tomorrow for a surprise giveaway, be sure to share this with your friends too!
