Speaking of which, will all future blog posts be on the new site? (sorry, had one more question in me)

My turn again.

Will the game receive any translations?
Sal die spel enigste vertalings kry? (translated by google translate ^^)
Zal het spel enige vertalingen krijgen? (translated by me in my first language, look how it looks alike to the Afrikaans! ^^)

A friend of mine wants to know if there will be an option to play the game with the older, more pixellated tileset while the new ruleset remains intact. This kinda does sound cool. Any plans for it?

@zeemeerman2 : It seems that at least, it will be possible to translate. From another post :
dislekcia : "It's so much easier changing text in the full - it's all ready to be localised and stuff, so it's in one easy place."

I've been thinking about including a subdungeon featuring some "oldschool" characters as a novelty, but to build an entire map style out of the old tileset is impractical -- there's too much new information and variation in the new graphics sets.

Stayed tuned for cameo appearances, though. :P

Google seemed to miss one thing: Afrikaans also uses "enige" in this case. So even more similar! :P
To confirm what flap quoted: yep, the game is definitely designed for translation!

We're going to try get DD-specific content running on both sites using, like, automatic stuff. Not too sure on the details -- mostly I just hear my colleagues saying, "blah blah blah web wizardry things" then go back to shoving crayons up my nose.

For now, we're just double-posting the critical stuff on QCF and DDnet, so you won't miss anything important if you follow either right now. :) Would recommend you follow DD if you have to choose only one, though.

I just realized something! There's no fog of war in any of the screenshots. Is that just for screenshot purposes, or has that aspect been removed?

@Herborist
The game never had any fog of war (weird name, actually) except from special classes (and items as I recall). But not in general. Once you explored a tile, it stayed explored. It doesn't make sense to cover all far-away tiles around you you've explored in darker terrain, since the monsters don't move anyway. It would just be annoying since you can't see monster levels (and monster stats on mouse hover) unless you're near.
Fog of war is the darker terrain also featured in other games.
Or did you mean the black unknown terrain tiles? They are present in the commercial versions.

What are the differences between the E3 Demo and the full version? ( I can name a lot, but I wanna see if I missed anything )

Any chance of including a voucher for the iOS or Android version of the game with the Special Edition? (He asks cheekily, having already ordered the SE.)
