Late Night Computing has a new target for October 12, 2012. You.
What do you imagine the world of Dishonored smells like? Yes, I know you're saying to yourself "my what an odd question." But, as I was blinking in and out of the shadows last night, it struck me that this world must wreck rather pungently. Not like that fresh new-car scent wafting through the command center of Mass Effect's Normandy. What does burning whale blubber smell like, anyways? I haven't the slightest idea. And really, I'm not quite sure I need to find out.

Is Kickstarter running out of steam?" [by The Grolar Bear]
