For those that didn't know it -- AMA : "Ask Me Anything", acronym used on internet forums, primarily Reddit. ;)

I won't be able to ask directly, because I won't be at my computer at time of AMA. If someone would be nice enough to ask for me that would be great. My questions are: 1) How many pages of text in total (dialogue, item descriptions, menus, etc.) are in the game? 2) Is Stoic planning to do localizations? If yes, which languages and what do they think about fan-based localization?

Myll_Erik, the word is out on global chat about AMA - one question: will it be recorded for those who cannot participate?

Reddit AMAs are purely text. It should be preserved for posterity as long as Reddit sticks around :)

Stoic Studio guys answered your questions on reddit:

"Alex: 1) It's an interesting question, because I don't really know. The way dialogue is inputted into the game means there isn't one big document with all the text, which makes doing a word count trickier. But, if I had to guess I feel like I've written a small novel at least. You won't see all that text unless you play through every possible branch. The amount of writing in the game is one of the reasons we couldn't commit to voice acting for the first game: it would be a huge, expensive endeavor. 2) We are definitely planning to localize. I believe our top two languages based on users and surveys is German and Russian, and we'll do as many more as makes sense. As for fan localization, it's not out of the question. We've thought about crowd-sourcing it before."

"John: And there are about 300,000 lines of code, which would be the equivalent of a stack of paperback novels about 8 feet high, I think. I'm on my second keyboard :)"
