Just curious what makes you think Rhinos and Bookworms? The worms are thematic I guess, but Rhinos?

The potential for a connection to The Ivory Towers novel is interesting! What if all the games storybook worlds are loosely based on actual literature?

*That said* I'm on the skeptical side, presently. Ivory tower is moderately commonly used: though it often refers to scholars, it can denote any priveleged seclusion from the lives of "everyday people."
In terms of American politics, a liberal may use it to refer to Wall Street; a conservative to university professors. (Examples are speaking broadly!)

Hivory Towers' twitter shows a bookshelf in the background. This makes me wonder if ivory tower simply means a place filled with books. (Any library can be an ivory tower, of sorts.) The CEO may be using the book worlds for profit ... perhaps "vertical markets" catering to each world? (Maybe a stretch...)

Edit: to affirm -- I like the book theory, but until we know more it's going a bit 'out on a limb,' I think.

By Rhino he must mean that concept art which appeared to be of such an animal.

If we get a "book worm" or "wise owl" or "smart staphylococcus" company, they may be already aquired given that Hivory Towers seemingly possesses the books.

I like Rhinos too. Find elephants pretty neat, also.
I will certainly also be checking my Twitter feed when it gets to be that time!

Maybe* depending on accuracy of historical estimate* and if we get anything* but I sort of assume we'll get another snippet of something.

3 updates out of the way, am I right? :lol:

The first one was two hours later than the next two. Funny enough the third was ten minutes after the second. But maybe there's nothing today.

Can anyone get out the one from QuackCorp? All I see is "QuackCorp's tweets are protected."

Ahhhh! Well, that tells us nothing but is definitely very exciting. I bet that's whatever the silhouette is, but it could be anything hahaha
