Greetings, we are still working in Bacus Studio son our next game, meanwhile i am working on Lore, to make the Universe a lot richer.

As you might expect you can get stuck from time to time, especially when working with believable alien races. One of such things that can be tricky would be of the idea of humanity. This idea basically considers that some certain traits are similar for all entities with capability of advance thought (such as tool creation, mathematics, philosophy, and much more). This traits would be consider that intelligent beings should be consider equals and so forth.

This in turn, whether all races or some share this concept or not, it is on itself really tricky, firstly because of the fact that humanity derives from the concept of Human, therefore is attached to one race, and we can certainly not allow that.

This is where the community steps in!

We are looking for ways of calling the idea of humanity, and we think that our readers might have great ideas. We created the term thinkbeing but it does not quite fit.

The main necessity for this word would be to fit in circumstances such as the following:

You cannot go killing the last Exiled! That’s inhuman. Where is your humanity?”

Please leave a comment below.

Thank you for reading.

Have you ever thought of using sentient/sentience? Sentient beings would work.

Alright, well, if you ever get it on youtube maybe we can negotiate a me promoting it deal or something haha (As you can see I have many watchers) But anyway, I'd like to check it out once you guys reveal it. The concept art is really good.
