Hi Reddit, Dennis here, I work for Funcom on Conan Exiles and Isle of Siptah as the lead designer. That means I make decisions for your game and introduce or scrap mechanics!
The purpose of this AMA is to connect with you, our players, and hopefully answer some of your burning questions regarding game development and let you in on some of the thought process but also fun that went into redesigning some of the mechanics for Isle of Siptah.
Let me also thank you for your ongoing support. Without you, Conan Exiles wouldn’t be what it is.
To provide proof of my gaming passion, here is a picture of a game dev in his environment.
