The incubation period is sort of amusing

  • While in Aberration, I also had the honor of  ARK Items having an alien burst out of my chest cavity. There's a giant queen creature in the game that can implant players with her brood—I got a quick glimpse of her during my tour, and she's pretty terrifying. The incubation period is sort of amusing: as the creature grows inside you and you get closer to giving 'birth', your torso actually begins bulging comically (or horribly, depending on how you look at it). I was going to post a gif of the creature exiting my body in a spray of blood and wriggling away, but I think I'll let you discover it for yourself when Aberration is released.

    I'm still not entirely sure I'll enjoy being underground all the time in Aberration—I still feel like I'll miss the sunlight, snow-capped mountains, and sparkling seas of the island map. But rock-climbing, ziplining, and gliding sure are a lot of fun. Even if I don't love the caves, I love getting around in them.
