    Rapid Aggressive Darwinism

    The other day we announced our new feature 'Sven Co-op Monster Mix (tm)'. While we were very excited with the first round of playtests we encountered a slight problem. Within a few hours we started noticing that certain combinations appeared more often than others and after a day of playing, the variations of monsters started to decrease more and more. It appears our system suffers of Rapid Aggressive Darwinism. With every 'evolution' a certain species becomes more dominant until it infested nearly every monster and eventually took over the entire system.

    We could have never guessed it but the species in question was:

    The Snark!
    The Snark!

    As we speak, the development version of Sven Co-op is made up for 95% of Snark. Chubby ratings are down by 37%! Therefore we have decided to pull the plug on the 'Sven Co-op Monster Mix(tm)' feature. It's the only way to stop the epidemic from spreading. Hopefully we'll be able to redesign the system by next year around the first of april.

    I always knew Snarks would take over the world some day.

    You've misunderstood, those drawings were for our upcoming line of non-copyright-infringing plush toys. But here they are anyway:

    Do the all variations of Snark enemies also burst and explode?
