    No notification so far from Twitter. They'll probably release it at 1 pm EST?

    There is a Stream planned for Thursday at 6 pm EST, so: What do we say to The Humankind Fans? Not Today.

    The stream on Thursday is just our regular, weekly gameplay stream, currently with an Endless Space 2 playthrough. You're not going to get new Humankind info there, I'm afraid.

    And just so we are clear for everybody: The only reason my post mentioned Tuesday is that the reference doesn't work otherwise. I have no idea what weekday we will pick them back up again.

    A reference? With a fine print disclaimer?

    Amplitude is French, so they'll be Etats-Unis ... (cue Montreal Olympics opening ceremony U.S. network TV coverage commercial break).

    No, no... They'll have me write the reveals, then it'd be Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika. ;)

    More like Vespuccia or if we want to go for something in Latin, Vesputia.

    Etymologically, it would be called "Little Wasp Land."

    Aaaah, yes. I think I'm going to overdose on announcements and reveals by mid March.

    Three Kingdoms also just got one 15 min ago.

    Regarding the trailer and post, I love the approach of giving very distinct attire to different cultures, not just the unique units.

    A poem, because I want more Humankind culture reveals soon:

    Amplitude, you have the latitude

    to release more cultures, to help our attitude

    we await fresh word

    from that little blue bird

    o twitter, carry that good news from Amplitude

    Red roses are red.
    The sky is blue.
    I want reveals so bad.
    All statements above are true.

    Truly poetry to rival the most sublime haiku, the most insightful of sonnets, and the most complex of villanelles.

    Amplitude must give
    Us the news we desperately seek.
    The wind amidst pines.

    Young and beuatiful Amplitude,
    the gamestudio of Frenchland,
    waiting are the civfanatics,
    for the reveals of new cultures.

    (Kalevala-style poetry looks pretty weird in English...)

    I think Humankind had a strong tailwind when everything was happening around the lucy opendev and the hype was building (I even managed to get 1000 views for my first lucy video within 1-2 days), but the sudden radio silence outside of some niche forums and a few developer diaries has certainly tempered my expectations.

    I think I will still preorder the game because people want to see it, but I feel that the atmosphere has changed around the game and Civ 6 is gaining back its gallop with the consistent free updates and the new barbarians mode. Also, they (Firaxis) know when to dangle the carrot at least for me because 2/3 civilizations getting reworked makes me want to switch my attention to their franchise

    Humankind could still knock it out of the park, but I don’t know if it will be quite the home run. Then again, who knows
