Hi Tim! My question is, now that you are developing Psychonauts 2, how do you find a balance between staying faithful to the original vision of Psychonauts, while also creating something new and different? Will Psychonauts 2 focus more on innovation, or will it focus on recreating the magic of the original Psychonauts game?

Can you explain why you decided on a dynamic type system? I get that it is par for the course among popular scientific computing languages, but is there a reason for this? Are dynamic types somehow a good fit technically for this domain? Do dynamic types appeal to the demographic?

Disclaimer: I'm a Haskell / Standard ML fanboy. Types are comfortable for me, and I don't get how other programmers prefer to push them out of sight. Yet I know a lot of people do prefer the dynamic approach, so I must be missing something.

They punctured my ear drums and inserted drainage tubes that stayed in for 5 years (for most people that get these inserted they stay in for ~6 months). I can now hear again!

How long was it before you could hear again? Was it immediately after the surgery or did it take some time?

The end of life part is what gets me... I for one kind of prefer living. In all seriousness though, its not that death is terrible, it is just that life is awesome, and I don't want to see it end. I'm not afraid of what happens after death, I'm just dreading when my life inevitably comes to an end.
