Hi Jon! Thanks for your questions :) We named our studio Big Sandwich because, well,...who doesn't like a Big Sandwich? (And who doesn't like a great game.) As for what constitutes a big sandwich: it's something you know on sight. If you have to ask, it's not a big sandwich! We have, however, had large internal debates about whether an open face sandwich is truly a sandwich or not. Finally, as to a deep, clever conspiracy between Sony and Valve...we like Sony, and we like Valve. That's as simple as it is for us!

Hi Keaka26: Your dragon is not persistent from one game to the next. A large part of the gameplay is about upgrading in a strategy that fits each match--kind of like Starcraft. However, playing improves your profile and unlocks over 100 Steam achievements, so there are some persistent elements to your experience.

Why did you name your studio Big Sandwich Games? Follow up question, What qualifys as a big sandwich? Is it how big the ingredients are or how much is on that sandwich, for example if I have 20 different toppings on my sandwich but it's two regular pieces of bread can that ever become a big sandwich or does it have to be subway style foot long bread?

Something a bit more serious, I noticed some psn exclusive titles appearing on pc as steam exclusives. Burn Zombie Burn, Shatter, Blue Toad Murder Files, Hoard. I noticed it start happening as soon as Sony and Valve became best friends, you probably can't go into detail on what goes on behind the scenes I just want you to know I'm on to you and I got my eye on you. Also Joe Danger coming to Steam, confirm or deny?

closing comment, fix ps3 voice chat. Besides that keep up the good work Hoard is awesome and all pc owners should buy it

Also, is your character "persistent" from one game session to the next?

I don't see anywhere to pre-order the game on steam! It's 3/21...
