Nice video, but are you aware of the one in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind? In one of the ancestral tombs, his skeleton (with his hat and whip) can be found under a boulder, and there is a note beside him that is signed 'Indie'. Someone else will probably say the same, but yeah, I think it's worth noting. Still, though, great video as usual - I'm always chuffed to see you've uploaded something, and today was no different. Good work!
