It's definitely in the ARK family. I mean, here are David's horses mating. (Sorry about the dark screenshot. The hilarity happened during the in-game night.)

Terse summary: MoE is a less-janky, less-creepy, deeper Conan Exiles. There's a taste of Mount & Blade, but it's a third-person base-builder primarily. The enormous tech tree goes from the traditional "pick up rocks and sticks" to smelting more and more interesting metals.

We spent a chunk of the weekend--okay, okay, all day Sunday-- playing Myth of Empires. This is an early-access open-world survival crafting base-building sandbox game, which is my jam.

I have no opinion or visibility into specific events. I don’t know whose right or wrong. But I know what happens when communities aren’t explicit about power: they become explicit because people take it, and other people don’t like it.

While we're on the subject, research has shown that mome raths only outgrabe when held in captivity; this is NOT a natural behavior and shouldn't be promoted as such! twitter.com/fields_unsown/stat

The person changing jobs is taking far more of a risk than the company doing the hiring.

Also you, as a candidate, have all the power right now, in this wild market. Use that power. Protect yourself.

If you have been in an interview with me in recent years, you will have heard me acknowledge this specifically! It’s part of my interview script, as is a turnaround section for you to ask ME questions.
