From ThreeA Blog Q & A #37: “Q: You mentioned that your decision to make T.H.U.G as a robot, helped round up EVENFALL story. Can you please share some more about EVENFALL and how T.H.U.G robot is controlled? Is there a command center with pilots somewhere or robot comes with it’s own AI?
A: Actually they kinda function like a modern jet, the main bot is autonomous but there is a control team that is seeing what it see’s, etc, and can augment the decision making processes of the T.H.U.G.y, etc. Imagine if you will, the T.H.U.G. is deep underground in a crypt type environment, above in an OP’s base the handlers watch monitors etc, looking for movement, or sublet shifts that the A.I. couldn’t catch. - Ashley Wood”
