Combat interface: comments and minor complaint.
I've been playing this game for a while but not found much cause to comment due to it being all young and awkward. I enjoy it a lot, especially more recent builds that are really coming together. It's tough, and I never get anywhere really, but it feels realistically harsh most of the time in a way that many games haven't the guts to try.
One criticism: I find that the interface is not user friendly in some places. My least favourite is the positioning of the 'confirm' button in combat. It is too far away from the box of combat options. Not a huge problem when playing with the mouse, but I often play on my laptop and combat involves a lot of track-pad swiping.
You could re-position the 'confirm' button, or introduce a keyboard short cut (I don't think there's one at present).
Another helpful shortcut might be 'keep last combat choice'. When I'm hacking someone with my cleaver I tend to take the same choice many times.
Otherwise combat is much more interesting now. I'm glad to hear that unconscious enemies won't take quite such a beating any more. Something for the future might be fallout style flavour speech from enemies: threats, boasts, pleading, screaming. Grunts and whimperings from the dogmen.
Although I do quite like the inhuman coldness of npcs too.
