Because Karma getting sexualized is a fear I've had ever since I heard her art was getting remade.

The rest was basically just comedic over exaggeration that failed.

As long as she keeps her fans and it would be nice of her sort of baiting gameplay was still there.

I... am ashamed to admit I would pay to see that.

But on a more serious note, the feedback about Aether Wing Kayle was pretty negative upon her release... can you comment on that?

This is normal in development - ideas are worthless, testing and iteration is the work. This takes time and to allow people to be creative, you need to allow them freedom to fail so they can find what's right.

I keep being reinforced that I should never talk about anything that's not locked down, because I always have to clean up the mess on the boards if anything unexpected happens - and game development is a very unexpected job :P

No - Norse King just needs more work overall. I think this is a good example of where we should have prioritized better though.

Not so much negative, more..meh. The skin was good, but could've been (and if you ask me, should have) been better than it was with only a few minor changes.

It just reeked of wasted potential, and like it was rushed out the door.
