Welcome all ye who enter this site and these forums, for you are not lost.
I am Salty Ben, one of the team that has worked hard, in our scant spare time, to bring this project to you - Critical Snail Studios. There's plenty of text on the website that tells you about who we are trying to be, this thread is for you to tell us who you are and what you expect from us.
I am a father, a husband, a commuter, and an employee and the way I spend my spare time is important to me. My expectations are that the games I play, the books I read, the ideas I ponder are interesting, authentic and are worth the investment I put into them. This is an important part of the identity that Critical Snail wants to have, and the relationship that we want to have with you, the customers, fans and observers. That relationship exists to serve you and is the largest reason we host these forums. This will be a place, like many other hobby forums, where you can gather with friends, make new friends and discuss Critical Snail games (and others I'm sure), and just geek out about the things you love. The difference between this "corporate monitoring forum" and what you might see on other companies' websites, is that we (the designers, creators, and managers) want to interact with you, listen to feedback, hear complaints (and hopefully a compliment or two), and have an open line of communications with you, the audience.
To wrap this up: Welcome, make yourselves at home, and let's start building this community to share our passions for gaming and general geekery
