  1. Hey DF, just backed it! Best of luck to you guys (and girls)!
  2. Hey, I finished THE WHOLE GAME a few minutes ago. Absolutely loved it. I was suprised by the twist of the story and (like someone stated before) loved to see the characters get together in the credits. This was one 3 years ride, wasn't it. I hope DF has more Adventure to come in the future (since you have an engine now). I ordered a boxed copy, just for my collection
  3. who said that there will not be an android version?
  4. For anyone interested. The game is in the Steam Top Ten again, at the moment, due to the 33% discount.
  5. It is the game that most of us asked for. It doesn't have hard puzzles (so far) and it's not complete yet. But it is an adventure game from Tim Schafer where you point & click and get a story told. The genre in itself is old school. It lived on in europe, especially germany and the east european countries and evolved. It's not SCUMM anymore and I didn't exspect DFA to use anything near it, from the start. Yeah ACT 1 could have had more puzzles but it still is a great piece of art. I think many did exspect it to be the new "best Adventure Game of All Time", because 90.000 people gave their money to get it done. But it is as it is. You cannot satisfy 90.000 people. It's absolutely impossible. So I don't know where the "we" comes from. I am not dissapointed. I got what I asked for.
  6. Nice to see you hint us at the other KS projects. KING ART Games backed Massive Chalice. Great, isn't it?
  7. Just speaking for myself: I thought the puzzles would be harder, but that is the only criticism I can really state. But it is too early to judge the whole game, if Act II will be harder the game will have a great balance - like many other adventures too) I think that both characters are well designed. Vella has that warrior spirit, like her Grandpa used to have. She definetly knows that she made the right choice and not an easy one knowing her family might suffer from it. I also love the way she speaks and comments, though and sweet at the same time. Not bored on my side. Just replay some other Tim Schafer games, the biggest things you get to know about his lead characters are often to find somwhere between the lines. That's what I love about his writing.
  8. I just made a news on gamersglobal.de: http://www.gamersglobal.de/news/81620/broken-age-act-1-trailer-zum-verkaufsstart Trying my best to spread the word about the game! Once again: great work DF!
  9. I already played the game about 11 hours (finished two times). I love Act 1 (a masterpiece of art and storytelling); you already know puzzles in Act 2 need to be harder, though. Bought the game again as a gift for a good friend who had her birthday last week. Hope it sells well: it is up in the top ten list on steam (4th) at the moment Congrats Reds! Well Done.
  10. Hi there, my overall experience with Broken Age? I am loving it! Thank You Very Much Doube Fine. But, as you should have recognised by now. Act 1 is too easy. I don't think that's bad, because Act 2 will be harder (Tim already said so in the last Epsiode) and the game as a whole will have a good balance. Once Again, Thanks for the opportunity to be part of this project.
  11. Na, the question as always is. What does a 9/10 stand for? It is a overall individual fun/excitement rating, isn't it? There are some 9/10 rated games out there, where I really think: For what? Like ehm.. Crysis. Yeah I played it through. Looked good and had great mechanics. But I consider a game like Dreamfall (which e.g. was an adventure with no riddles at all)a much more fascinating game. Because It hooks me from the start and I just don't want to stop playing (even missed school for "The Longest Journey" back in 1999). From a technical point of view, I would say e.g. Dreamfall was a 6/10. But I will remember this game forever. And that makes it a 10/10. And the same goes for Broken Age (as far as I can tell after ACT 1) The question always remains. What does the numbers mean for you personally. And that is a discussion going on since the start of Game/Music/Book -Reviews.
  12. and a 86 from: http://www.pcgamer.com/review/broken-age-act-1-review/ and a 10/10 from me What a blast.
  13. Great Episode. And !whoa! the game looks fantastic. 8 bit mode is awsome and should be included just for Old-School-Love. I think the looks will raise the bar for other adventure developers out there. I don't remember a (adventure) game ever showing off that much atmosphere. It ain't far from here, friends
  14. Hmm, Black Mirror (1, 2 & 3 are good too, but not as 1) Tales of Monkey Island Sam & Max series Deponia 1 & 2 (3 released tomorrow) Back to the Future Dreamfall (not really classic Adventure though, but wonderful story) A New Beginning Chronicles of Zersura puuh, gotta look in to my shelf for more.
  15. which Andoid version ist required? Writing a news on this on german website.
  16. Makes perfect sense to me. The best thing to do online with stuff like that is to not participate and let them wind themselves out. Any comments about agreeing to disagree from outside participants will always been seen as you being forceful/controlling and perhaps a little censorious. Welcome to the backer board though. You seem perfectly pleasant and your thoughts are coherent, I hope you enjoy the site and all the delicious content (check out the main videos from this list if you haven't already done so: http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/6794/ ) Yeah thanks for the advice I really am pretty new with this forum stuff, after all. But it just shows how easy a written word can be read wrong by others. Like, it gets the wrong tune. Something that wouldn't happen if one would really speak and pronounce, than write. Thanks for the link, gonna check it out.
  17. Maybe (just maybe) because I like reading posts around THIS topic? And maybe (just maybe) I wanted to tell my opinion (like everyone is rightfully doing here) on the ongoing discussion. You know this freedom of speech kinda stuff? I just stated that I don't like this back and forth discussion leading nowhere. And my intention was to show the fans that agreeing to disagree might be a solution to stop them from getting arthrosis in their fingers Maybe I should have made that more clear in the first place and I apologize if anybody felt affected.
  18. You don't have to read this, y'know. If I don't read though "my" fan forum, than what's the point of being in the DF community anyway. ... But the discussion just leads nowhere: Someone tells it like this, the other one like this. Then both parts repeat their arguments stating the other not having done his/her homework on the topic just to receive a same accusation. And besides; I only know i should not have read it, after I read it. Right?
  19. I tossed my Iphone away a while ago and turned over to the samsung S3 mini. And I love that andoid much more i really have to admit. BUT the only thing I MISS is MIDDLE MANAGER OF JUSTICE. Looking forward to the android release is what I wanted to say.
  20. Oh man, ... Am I the only one getting tired of this discussion? Things have been said, opnions have been made. Now: Just lean back and await the future, there is nothing more we can do! (except howling our best werewolve howl) (We just will keep repeating ourselves for months to come) Let them do their work, I guess all the drama keeps them busy enough anyway.
  21. That is a good thought, in a weird way 100% true,
  22. I wonder what happens if I use (get) the Steam Early Access. Is this some sort of definite choose of the steam version of the full game. Or will there be a way back to the drm free version. When will I have to choose? I know it's still a long time until the release so the decision might not yet been made. AND It 's not like I don't have steam (over a hundred of games in there), but I start to think drm free suits me better after all. AND Maybe I would buy the drm free version anyway, just for the support of it.
