    What is it? Can you piece the clues together? Do you know what the truth is?

    Discuss all speculations and things related to what we're up to next here.

    Using my mystical psychic powers... I speculate predict that Project Odin will involve... technology. Yes, I see technology clearly... It is also likely certain that that it will involve... consumers. Yes, it will become known to the public. I see this clearly. With my mystical psychic powers. It is obvious.

    Okay, so we have Odin, a well-done picture of dwarves, and more important of all: IMAGINATION! mystery!

    Well the jobs post is looking for a RTS guy IIRC.

    A real time strategy game involving dwarves? Magic?

    If these guys can put the fun, usability and presentation they put in rogue (resulting in Dredmor, of course) into Dwarf Fortress I'll name my future progeny after them even if I have less than three, even if they're born female.

    I can even picture it now, picking up little Danielle Davita Nichole from ballet class... Magical!

    If Project Odin was to Dwarf Fortress as DoD was to Rogue, I think I would cry with joy. However, that's one hell of an undertaking.

    seriously, so we know gears and electricity have a lot to do with the game, and terrain looks like it will play a big role.

    something to do with terrain-altering machines?

    Giant steam-tanks drilling/knocking down mountains would be awesome.

    and if netcode is important, then obviously fighting other players in dynamically altered maps by the giant gear machines?

    Strangely I am thinking of a Rogue/ Diablo style squad based RTS, and I have no idea why..
