Hi again, I just played through the Murderer campaign...well, most of it, I stopped on the last level largely due to being rather terrible at the whole "charge and shoot" mechanic. So I might be asking a question or two answered in-game, but really this section of the game has just spurred me on to ask a few questions about it and the game in general, since you're so willing to converse with your fans directly.
Regarding the plot in particular, is the Balkvian emperor [can't remember the specific name for him at the moment] seen in the campaign the same one featured in the main plot? Furthermore, is he killed in his attempt at crossing the path in VII?
Secondly, while I haven't managed to finish the last mission, I did start it...and I'd really like to know what in the world is up with that pink thing that talks to you. I have that question about a few of the characters in the game, but that in particular; what's his...her's...its deal?
In fact, I'd like to pose that question about the pink things in general; while given completely normal dialogue, they look...incredibly weird. I could say this of almost everything in the game, but in particular these things seem almost monstrous; is that intentional, or are they just meant to be another alien species? In fact, while I'm on the subject; what exactly IS the inspiration behind the character designs in this game? Its always been one of the things that stuck out about the game to me; they're quite unique and simultaneously among the strangest things I've ever seen. The Emperor in the "Notes from Pathspace" campaign in particular is probably the most intimidating thing I've seen in awhile, especially factoring in that his voice is represented by the sound effect of breaking glass.
Good job on that design in particular. (Does he actually look like that, or is it just poor K being a nut? And thanks for your time, hope the questioning isn't too disjointed. I've been rather curious about the aesthetics of this game for awhile and just never thought to ask.)
