I think I recall that episode. Obviously, I didn't watch Sesame Street myself, but I watched it by proxy through my kids. They were a little old for it in the late 70s but still liked to watch from time to time.

Tsk. Sesame Street was certainly for kids, but the satire of The Muppet Show was largely aimed over their heads.

Nooo, not as enemies. I don't shoot animals. Just people. Here's to social justice. :ehehe:

Concerning wildlife... RTG has a LOT to work with for the Svalbard area. Behold: The spectacled eider.

I think I'd like a Beyond Good & Evil-like photography game mechanic. :P

Frankly, I'm only interested if they license some music from the Arctic Monkeys for the soundtrack. :P

Actually, for my RPGs, with every additional ounce of the epic, forget any established artists more and go as orchestral as humanly possible. :D
 
And here's a little Svalbard reindeer for y'all.

 Behold: The spectacled eider.

 

How is that even a real animal. 

 

(Though I do wonder how many of these animals are still alive in a post-apocalyptic future that takes climate change into account.) 

 

Frankly, I'm only interested if they license some music from the Arctic Monkeys for the soundtrack. :P

 

Oh, man... ...Now I have to come up with a list of other suggestions...

Wait until you see the king eider. Now that's a made up bird. :P

The amount of thinking I did on this certainly doesn't match the elementary nature of the conclusion: Who cares about climate change when nuclear winter drops the mean temperature by a whopping 6 to 8 degrees celsius? Svalbard's fauna might be far better adjusted to this kind of climate change than humans after all. ;)

I don't know how I missed this but obviously I did. Here is some research on what a nuclear winter brought on by a relatively small nuclear war would do to the planet: http://www.popsci.co...ter-nuclear-war

According to:

 

http://www.nfi.no/br...kudd?key=147469

 

after using google translate:

 

"The studio launches in spring 2016 fifth and final episode of the acclaimed adventure game series Dreamfall Chapters."

 

Don't like the sounding of "final". Why rub it in. Why take all the hope away. Ragnar! :wacko:

It says end of Dreamfall Chapters, not necessarily TLJ. ;)
