    Linux adventure gamer, crowd-funding fan and hobbyist game dev.
  1. Jonas Kyratzes' games are super weird also: http://landsofdream.net/games/ I'm particularly fond of the bizarre Lands of Dream games. I suggest starting with The Book of Living Magic, specifically the Newgrounds version (believe it or not, it's the least obnoxious from an "free flash game portal" advertising perspective). The game is short, endearing, not particularly difficult, and a good small introduction to their style of game
  2. Nice one Incidentally, wanted you to know that your musing on code (and indeed those of Oliver & Brandon) may have a small audience, but one that does appreciate your efforts. In fact, some of us even understand, are learning about engine programming techniques from this, and plan to incorporate bits and pieces of these lessons into our own game dev hobby! So... thank you.
  3. Delayed continuations, eh... who'd've thunk it?
  4. I started as Vella, and played her story until meeting Curtis. I finished all the dialogue options with him, and then switched to Shay's story rather than leaving Curtis's house. After that, I played Shay's story to completion, and was transferred back to Vella, and proceeded to finish the game. Which I really enjoyed, by the way.
  5. Real excited about this one! I've played a bit of it, as well, and quite enjoyed the Freddy Pharkas-ness of it Also, yeah, about Josh. That guy's a class act, and the adventure community is richer with him in it.
  6. Way excited :-) Greg & Team Reds: Thanks hugely for the simultaneous platform release, from fans in the Linux gaming community! I can't express how much we appreciate being taken seriously. It's a big deal for us. . Think it's the same guy that also leaked the last time and made it sound extra bad for news worthiness. I thought that was Matt Helgeson from Game Informer.
  7. When Dave G. is discussing the redo of the Shay/Marek scene animation (just after time code 37:42), he mentions cutting a bunch of stuff, and sending it "over to super genius", who then does stuff, like adding minor flurries. Anyone know what he's talking about? Is it these dudes? Google gave me that, so who really knows, but I'm curious who that shout-out is to
  8. Now that I know is still not quite working in Linux yet. Progress on that pretty much stopped in January: http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/8364/
  9. Oh, man that is so cool!!! What an awesome payoff. So, I wonder if we've found everything? Hopefully CBD will pop in here and tell us for sure :-D
  10. Ah, so we're effectively running the same box. Interesting. Well, that's one way to solve the problem for us Linux folks :-/ Feels awfully cheatery though. Well, at least there's still the other puzzle!
  11. Yeah, don't we all love debugging with a command line only debugger? BTW, running OllyDBG which most people seem to use inside of Wine didn't do any good for me. I finally had to resort to a Windows terminal server I have access to. I hate myself. Oh and Brandon for making this so much harder for non-Windows users. Ah, bummer! It did work for me, just now.
  12. Success!! After unpacking the UPX, it runs correctly under OllyDbg 1.10 (at least) under Wine 1.4 (at least). Just do: WINEDEBUG=-all wine odbg110/OLLYDBG.EXE crackme.exe That's likely to work on OS X as well, so nobody really needs Windows at this point.
  13. Ha, awesome, I just figured this out on my own and came here to report it back :-D You guys are way ahead, haha. So happy I can finally make some progress on my own! Though I must admit I'm bad at debugging software inside of Wine...
  14. Maybe there was more hidden in the audio file?
