    Honestly, while some sort of super hard mode sounds really cool, fossils would make the game so much more immersible.

    Scientists ftw

    My vote goes towards fossils.

    I really loved collecting fossils in Animal Crossing V:
    You felt awesome after you finished off a dinosaur.

    I really love games that add some sort of item hunting, it gives me another thing to do.

    Fossils. Because I want to unearth alien lifeforms, which will allow me to create genetic modifications, or a deadly virus, or accidentally create a hostile xenomorph that escapes and infests the research facility. Or allows me clues to ancient relics and weapons and vehicles of great power. Or maybe great sums of money for a sidequest for collectables.

    Archeology in general can be truly amazing for a sci-fi realm. Just allow me to unearth ancient technology that can help me build a badass humanoid mech, and you'll have my undying support forever.

    i mean penguin mode sound fun and all but i like the idea of carefully digging for the fossilis that might be really bad ass for your decoration and everything:D

    I just thought... why not both? Both would be fun. But with fossils, if you can revive one, that would be super cool.
  11. Fossils it Is! Bacon Fossil I did found. :mwahaha:

    Fossils! Yes! I've been wanting that ever since I saw this mockup image way back when (this is a newer version with extra UI mockup from the roadmap):

    Oh my god is this for real? Like, REALLY for real?! Ahhh! Fossils, totally fossils! I mean, who here can claim that they never had a crazy craving for fossils as a kid? Y'know, "dinosaurs, yay!" and all that. As long as I am able to revive a pet deinonychus or pterodactyl (or, heck anything even remotely similar to a dino), I am SO in.
    ...What, who doesn't love archeology? Though it would have to be better than WoW Archeology...but yeah

    As for a penguin mode, that sounds totally hilarious. Like, some kind of easter egg almost. ...or a prank. Either way, I love the sound of it, but compared to the idea of fossils and potential dino pets, it just doesn't impress me enough. It sounds like a really fun addition to the game, but fossils would add a much more real, tangible aspect to the game. It would give the feeling of a fleshed-out world, a cool collectible sidequest type thing (gotta catch em all!), perhaps armors or decorations....compared to that, being a penguin just doesn't impact gameplay enough.

    Basically I think both are great ideas, and I truly hope that both are implemented.
